Yes, the Church of the Assumption of Mary. It is a pretty surprising choice because the church (from 1895) has little history. The place of the church (completely incapsulated in ugly concrete appartment buildings) leaves no room for grandeur. A remarkable choice for a Prince de Bourbon de Parme, an Ambassador at the Holy See. The whole of Europe is studded with churches which have a Bourbon or Bourbon-Parma link. Of all these choices the couple decided to marry at one of the ugliest squares of the Netherlands.

The place now: picture

The place not so long ago (the church is at the left): picture

The Prince of Wales was right with his quote that architects have done more damage to London than the Germans during the Blitz. You can add Apeldoorn to that place!

Thanks for the information,I agree about the location and the design of the church reminds me of the former Vondelkerk in Amsterdam,perhaps they had the same architect?

No, the Vondelkerk is build by the famous architect Pierre Cuypers, the same who build the Central Station and the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.

The church in Apeldoorn was build by lesser gods.

Nevertheless, I always enjoy new pictures. Lovable little girls. The parents seem to explode from proudness

The christening gown of princess Gloria has been made from the same fabric as the wedding gown of Princess Viktoria, claims the dutch press. Both gowns were designed by Claes Iversen.
