Svensk Damtidning's Ellen Myrgård (the only reporter writing about the wedding) tells, that before the guests arrived, photos of Lina and Jonas, and photos of them with their bridesmaids and bestman were taken. Then arrived Lina's old friends from Älvdalen and a little newer friends from Stockholm. Also William Värnild, Sofia's make up stylist arrived. Marie and Erik Hellqvist welcomed the guests. There were two bridal children, Jonas' nieces Engla and Alva. About 70 guests attended at the wedding. The guests got champagne and strawberries after they had arrived.
"It feels fantastic to get to wed Lina and Jonas. I have known them even before", says registrar Ulla Sjöström from Örnskiöldsvik. Lina's grandmother Britt says "It feels fantastic! But I am not nervous, it is not me who is getting married". The last to arrive is Carl Philip. When the wedding starts, Bryan Adams' "We're in Heaven" is played. The wedding ends just like Carl Philip's and Sofia's wedding to "Joyful Joyful", the modern version.

So that confirms the fact that the family was aware of the media and gave them few comments...

No, it confirms that at least one of the guests at the wedding talked to the press. The comment from her grandmother doesn't mean much. She didn't give out any details, just being polite.

I didn't suggest otherwise. Just pointing out that it wasn't true that they didn't know about paparazzis. They saw the cameras and the grandmother released few words that are given in those circumstances, that's it!

Of course we should. Just like we should punish anyone remotely related to Sofia and all her friends, old schoolmates and neighbors. Because then you're guilty by association.



(and yes, I'm ironic. And I'm sooooo tired of everyone who is constantly trying to find faults with Sofia and/or anyone connected to her).

They knew already on Wednesday before the wedding that there would be a photographer. Svensk Damtidning promoted then at their paper issue:
Next week
"Photo extra from the family celebration - Carl Philip and Sofia at a wedding... again!"

Thank you LadyFinn. I don't see why some people should have issues with it. The press was there, and the family acknowledged that. So, why keeping it deny that?

Bunte has a photo of the three sisters at Lina's wedding, from Sara's Facebook, and photos from the honeymoon of Lina and Jonas in USA, from Lina's Facebook.

@Lady Finn - why would Bunte run a story about a non-royal's honeymoon? You hardly hear anything, maybe once in a while, about the O'Neills and the Westlings. The Westlings have blood - Estelle - that will one day sit on the Silver Throne. A royal Hellqvist (Carl Philip & Sofia's child) will never rise that high. The only reason I see is that Bunte is using the non-royal relative angle hoping to get Bernadotte gossip. It's the Middletons 2.0.

Sofia has always been seen and treated by the press as a celebrity. Her sisters don't seem to mind the publicity. I am not in Facebook, but how has Bunte got these photos from the sisters Facebooks?
Anna Westling Söderström has made it clear that she is a private person and lives her life outside the publicity. And maybe the O'Neill relatives have more private Facebooks. Besides because Chris sued Bunte about their honeymoon photos, maybe Bunte doesn't want to write anything about the O'Neill relatives.
Bunte, like any gossip magazine, makes stories of anything related to royals and celebrities. And if the relatives of the royals gives them accesss to their social media, it is even easier for the media.

My observation is that Eva O'Neill, Chris' mother, is the in-law who is most in the media mostly due to her going to red carpet events.

Eva O'Neill is the Chairman of the Honorary Committee of the Amadeus Weekend at the Salzburg Music Festival, and that is why she attends events at the Festival. She has been involved with the Amadeus Weekend for over 10 years. She is a known person in London and Austrian society and is sometimes photographed at a red carpet at some event.

Thanks for the information. I was not being critical of Chris' mother, just sharing that I have a different observation regarding Swedish royal in-laws who are and aren't appearing in the media.

@Lady Finn - there lies the danger. If the Hellqvists are willing to avail themselves to the media, that means the bad stuff about them is now fair game.

Oh please....

Unless I mistaken about Facebook...if you are a friend of a friend...you can see that person's pictures....the only way you can't is if your profile is private.

Sofia and Carl Philip have only been married since June and I am sure the tabloid's increased interest in Sofia's sister's since the wedding are why we are seeing a lot about them in the 'news.' Therefore, they easily could be the source of the Facebook pictures.

Is Marie Hellqvist a twin? Because Sofia's aunt looks just like her!
