Didn't Albert and Charlene get married at the Palace? That would explain why their location looked to amazing.
And I have to be honest, Daniel and Victoria's church was lackluster and boring IMO.

The church where Guillaume and Stephanie got married was absolutely beautiful!

I have to admit, I am a fan of the British churches of Royal weddings. They are all so beautiful and the architecture is amazing. St George's Chapel is a stunning piece of architecture as it looks so gothic, yet it is beautiful. St Paul's Cathedral is another amazing building, it's so vast and beautiful.

The church of Guillaume and Stephanie's wedding was stunning, particularly the front of it.

The Cathedral of Notre-Dame de Luxembourg boggles the mind...it is so beautiful and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa had it decorated to perfection for her son's wedding.

Westminster Abbey and St Paul's Cathedral in London are also astonishing, not to mention dripping with history.

I love St George's Chapel Windsor because of it's historical significance-Henry VIII is buried there among many others-but I have to admit that on TV it looks rather claustrophobic for my taste.

The Royal Chapel where Victoria and Daniel baptized their daughter Estelle is very beautiful.

It's a pity that there will never be a royal wedding in what I think is the most wonderful royal church, the Sainte-Chapelle in Paris, the upper chapel would be a magnificent setting for a wedding: Sainte-Chapelle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia , especially on a sunny day when the sun shines through all the stain-glass windows.

Yes that is an amazing church! Also, Notre Dame is an absolutely breathtaking church!

That is one of the most amazing things I have ever seen..almost overwhelming. I was sad to read of it's desecration during the French Revolution by those impious beasts.

But it has been beautifully restored...thanks for the link Meraude.

That is one beautiful church! I have visted it in person and it's even more amazing! Notre Dame is also wonderful!

Hate to say Madrid´s Cathedral is the ugliest of the three for me, with difference. But then again, I´m not a fan of historicist buildings. The environment and the set with the palace are amazing, though. The view of both buildings from the river (they´re placed at the highest point of the city) is simply startling.

Elena and Jaime were married at Seville Cathedral,which I believe is the 3rd largest in the world!

I do believe that's also where Prince Laurent married Claire.

Yes. Only Prince AStrid and Archduke Lorenz married at another Church because the Catehdral was under renovation when they married.

Personally I love the Cathedral of Santa María la Real de La Almudena,not just because of Felipe and Letizia's wedding but I think it fits in well with the façade of the Palacio Real.
