Haven't they kissed in the balcony? I saw all the thread and didn't see any picture of them kissing each other, just kisses in the cheak. I never saw a Catholic royal couple kissing each other in the balcony. It's strange, because in Brazil, in Catholic churches, the couple kiss even in the ceremony.

I found a video with several reports on the engagement (see the beginning of the news up to the minute 24):

Mathilde had a dashing prince waiting for her at the altar

What a wonderful wedding, they are both shy people by nature and that's why they didn't kiss in the mouth in public but their gestures just screamed of the love they (still) have for each other.

Her wedding dress was spot on for a winter wedding and he looked so handsome in his uniform a perfect couple

I am happy that they didn't kiss in public TBH. It always look akward when the public screams for a kiss, and the bridal couple obliges. It feels like marionete puppets perorming in a theatre, which upto a certain extend it is perhaps.

Marengo, truer words have rarely been spoken. It's like some silly ritual now. And if heaven forbid the couple refuses to kiss on demand it means they are not "in love" or they have an arranged marriage.

God forbid they are just private people with no interest in performing for crowds and cameras!

leidi, I completely agree about Philippe and Mathilde...they are the gold standard of CP couples, imo.

Completely agree with both of you, they have never been the kind to kiss in the mouth in public but they have shown great (spontaneous) demostrations of affection during the years, there's no doubt in my mind that they love each other and are very happy as a couple.

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Wedding Wednesday: Princess Mathilde's Gown

When I first saw this dress, I did not like it. However it has grown on me and now I love this dress! I would not wear it nor does this dress belong on my all time favorites list, but this gown is beautiful, timeless, simple, elegant, and regal. I rarely like coat wedding dresses, but I think this gown is perfect. I love the simplicity of the dress and the regal look of the high collar. The veil and tiara were also beautiful. However one of the things I did not like about her look was her bouquet. It's just too overwhelming. Nevertheless, the gown was a magnificent winter wedding dress.

Mathilde looked absolutely beautiful on her wedding day.

I have read that she removed the coat during dinner at the reception, and it was a simple but elegant long sheath underneath.

What a sweet girl she was! (and is, it seems). Enjoyed seeing the video of the wedding.
Most of the guests looked grumpy and exhausted, in contrast to the fresh young happy bride and handsome groom. I guess those long weddings are exhausting?

December 4 was a bitterly cold day, even for that time of the year. I wouldn't be surprised if the guests were freezing to death.
