No, it wasn't an ecumenical service, so the marriage isn't void in the eyes of the catholic church. But I don't think he cares, as far as I know he's not a practising catholic.
The photos won't get large enough to see them:(

First time I've seen this happen. Just no pix of the children actually involved in the service.
They didn't show the bridal attendants very much in Victoria's wedding either, but then the church was different and the bride's entrance was shown better (it was longer) and then the children were more seen.

I like the official photos, and I really like the attendants outfits. The pale green was a beautiful choice.

I was going to say it's a shame we haven't got a group photo with all the Royals but then I forgot about the giant photo outside the palace.

There are a number of Crowns/Coronets that form the Swedish Regalia,I believe the The Crown Prince Coronet was used at Victoria's.

I'm not 100% sure which one was used today.

That the camera man paid more attention to Estelle is his fault not hers. She is the niece and Maddie and Chris obviously wanted her there.

According to kungahuset.se it was the Princess Hedvig Elisabeth Charlotta's crown, dating from 1778. The same crown stood at the baptismal font when Princes Madeleine was christened.

Party is in full swing but they can't give us too much details except that they don't think Madde has change gowns. They are stationed outside by the tents so they can't see/hear too much from inside.

I agree 100% An Ard Ri and I posted that somewhere else. Sometimes I get the feeling that Charlene is simply not into it.

The groom is Roman Catholic, I caught a glimpse of him making the Sign of the Cross during the ceremony. Was there a Catholic priest present?

Having a profissional singer at the church was strange and those were 4 strange minutes that they didn't knew what to do.....

Chris O'Neill et la princesse Madeleine de Suède au moment de l'échange des consentements, lors de l... funny picture but Madeleine didn't though it was funny at all

What do you mean, normally the performers are professional singers? And normally at the wedding there is a lot of music.

The producer or director probably told the camera operator to focus on Estelle.

I know this is a tad bit OT but about Charlene where was Albert why didn't he go with her?

The (IMO) great tradition of walking in together in the church is becoming more and more rare as our nation is soaked in all things american. I'm not a big fan of that.:
America didn't start the tradition of fathers walking daughters down the aisle, it was brought over from Europe!

I loved, loved, loved Madeleine's entrance song-enchanting!

Madeleine and Kate are now tied for Best Royal Processional music, imo.

I thought the attendant's garb was nice - not too uncomfortable for little people. And the mint green called back to the pre-wedding or engagement photos of Madeline (forget which - see Bildbeskrivning) . Nice!

I also loved the children lining the aisle with the garland - a lovely touch. I hope they got a group photo as well.

Finally, I knew some of you were outraged about dad being stopped in the aisle. Different churches do this differently - and I did think the king/daughter moment at the hand-off was precious.

Plus the church did put out a grown-up chair for the one year old.

Have Stephanie and Guillaume gone home? I didn't notice them get on and off the Stockholm boat.
Any guest that was not too keen on being on a boat were driven to Drottningholm. Not very much fun to get seasick. Perhaps they just chose to not ride the boat.
