I noticed that there and in the chapel as well. Do they have air conditioning in Sweden? I know it's a stupid question but do they?

In old 16th/17th C rooms the National Patrimonium Board most likely does not allow airconditioning as this requires breaking in historic artefacts of national importance. Note that it is hot because a) there are LOTS of people and b) there are TV-lights. In usual circumstances the venues will not be that hot.

Kalnel - Leonore might be for little boy Georgie of Cambridge ; )

This lace-y wedding dress all started from Princess Grace Kelly's ravishing wedding dress! When I saw Catherine's wedding gown, I instantly remarked "She copied Grace's lace!"

I just looked at Kate's wedding gown and saw that her and Sofia's gowns are different in many ways - the use of lace is just the similarity. Hello magazine exaggerated again : /

Frederik, Mary and Maxima enjoyed each other while waiting for the bride ang groom:

Reminds me about when Frederik photographed Mary and Maxima at Victoria's wedding and he whistled to the ladies as he took the picture

Of course. We have the same situation in some of the historic buildings and houses here in Charleston for the same reason. Thank you.

Church weddings call for music written for the church or -at least -
be able to blend in with the liturgy! While I accept the odd 'pop-solo'
en route just to add a personal touch, Sofia and Carl-Philip took
things way too far today. It was toe-crumbling, IMHO of course!

I found it strange that Princess Sofia did not make a révérence when she arrived at the altar. Prince Carl Philip made a bow (three times) and Princess Sofia followed him somewhat half-hearted, not really knowing what to do.

Well, on Queen Máxima's wedding a soloïst played on a bandoneón, a tango by Ástor Piazzolla, called Adiós Nonino, which means Farewell Papa (or grandpapa). So I think every couple has their own wishes, but I agree, at least a bandoneón is no pop-music.

I was looking for her too. She, Maxima and Mette-Marit usually hang together. I thought I must have missed her in the throng of people.

Lace wedding dresses are eternal.
Princess Grace wedding dress is still great, comparing to Princesses Astrid and Diana wedding dresses.

I think when they were reciting the Lord's Prayer (my Swedish is a little rusty LOL), it seemed to me she didn't join in and was looking around. She wasn't the only one, though. I could be wrong.

Yep, I remember! It was a beautiful piece of music which didn't clash with the occasion!

I know some people didn't like the 'joyful, joyful' song in the end of the ceremony, but that happens when people aren't used to that kind of gospel music, especially in churches like that. I thought that was a nice touch of holy ghost music.

I agree, I thought those songs at Victoria and Madeleine's wedding were dreadful as well, really tacky, which surprised me as this family are very classy the rest of the time. The wedding today was even worse in that respect and the least said about the way they left the church the better. She was a lovely bride though.

You definitely have to be used to gospel music to really enjoy it and feel the joy.

He is always struggling with his speeches, this time even more than normally.

I just have to say that church weddings for millions of people occur in churches built upon gospel music to spread the word. All this "that music does not belong in church"... "at a wedding," is just cultural bias. Which you are welcome to have, if you like. Just understand - that it is bias.
