The first wedding I saw was Alexandra and Joachim, I loved it, so romantic in that beautiful church and in the dark with the snow. What I remember best though was my father who never care about clothes and stuff wondering what birds had been incharge of her hair:p

Then I saw Cristina and Iaki, which I also loved even if I did not understand what they were saying, but she looked so beautiful and he so handsom and the church was impressive and all looked so grand.

Sophie and Edward in 1999

Haakon and Mette-Marit in 2001. The whole thing was quite surreal, from her interview/confession early in the week, to the emotional wedding on Saturday, watched it with several friends and all needed to get the tissues for the bishops speech And I loved the dress, and the flower and the dance and how beautiful all the guests looked:o I think evening weddings are more fun to watch.

Willem Alexander and Maxima, another very emotional wedding (esp the tango, snieff) and they both looked so happy, but I wish it had been a dance in the end or something like that to finnish it of, after the balconny i wanted more:o

Mrtha and Ari, a more fun wedding really, mostly because there were so many young guests (except Margrethe who became some sort of grand old lady with all the young ones around her) and the whole mood were much more relaxed than for Haakons wedding, Mrtha and ari so happy and in love and Trondheim is much more beautiful city than Oslo, so that contributed as well.

Frederik and Mary, I loved the whole show, noone does it better than Margrethe, all the parties and guests and dresses but the wedding itself did not touch me much except Frederiks tears, I blame it mostly on the bishop who I thought was bad and the female chatterboxes on DR who commented the whole thing.

Felipe and Letizia. I thought the one incharge of the camera should be fired, he seemed more interested in the roof, the paintings, the choir, the musicians, than the couple and their guests, the filming was so bad it ruined the wedding for a TV watcher. Juan Carlos looked like he was going to the dentist, and the rain did not help, and the whole terrorist attack put another damper on the wedding. And the grumpy bishop acted like he was presiding a funeral not a wedding

The last wedding I watched was the blessing of Charles and Camilla. Even if it was modest, and the bride and groom were not exactly young and beautiful I found it very touching and classy, and i especially liked how they went to greet some people afterwords

But ofcourse now Im eagerly awaiting for Victoria to get married, hopefully its an evening thing.

I have watched all 3 Spanish weddings (Elena, Cristina and Felipe) and part of the wedding of Frederik and Mary. All were very beautiful! If I'm honest I only watch them to see the bride's dresses!

Hi, only one and that was years ago. but i didn't watch the whole thing, as i was busy, but it was an amazingly long vail. i remember being somewhat impressed by that. really i don't think we here paid attention to these types of things until that event. i think most people at that time thought of royals as something which does not really exist except only in the past or in fairy tales. plus, i don't think they really show these events on a broad scale really either? i haven't really noticed any others, their must be some web sites where one could view some of these maybe?

Royal Weddings Watched

Weddings I've seen on TV:

Prince Rainier and Princess Grace (shown in US around the time of Charles and Diana's)
Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer
Prince Andrew and Miss Sarah Ferguson
Prince Edward and Miss Sophie Rhy-Jones
Prince Charles and Mrs. Camilla Parker-Bowles

I'll be booking my flight to London as soon as Prince William's wedding is announced. They BETTER NOT pull this Windsor Castle stuff either. They better have William's wedding at St Paul's or Westminster Abbey or I'll be angry. I mean really - he's going to be the sovereign!

Wow, so many of you have seen all of the weddings during the past few years; here in Finland they have only aired the really big ones like Mary & Frederik and Felipe and Letizia. My first memory of a royal wedding is of Charles & Diana's; I also vaguely remember seeing Joakim and Alexandra's on TV. Philippe and Mathilde's didn't air here, but I was in Brussels at the time and saw it live - somewhere there is a pic we took later on where I stand on the church steps on the red carpet with a friend.

Good times.

There are just three really big ones left now, CP William, CP Victoria and HGD Guillaume, and then decades of no royal weddings of that calibre until the now-babies reach the marrying age. Sort of sad really

I had to borrow the video from the video store to watch Pavlos and Marie-Chantal's wedding....

I saw Frederick and Mary's wedding (I must say it was wedding overload as they showed it twice or three times!!!!)

And when I was little Charles and Diana.....

All of you are so lucky. Not so lucky here in Singapore though...only a short clip are available for the Crown Princes wedding during the evening news..no telecast of the entire wedding. Only remember bits of Charles & Diana wedding (me abt 5 yrs old then). The only wedding i watch is Naruhito and Masako. Not live though, during then, one of the major Japanese dept store held an exhibition in celebration of the wedding and they are showing the video clip. Nothing much except Masako walk behind Naruhito and they went in and out of the Shinto temple for their 'secret' wedding ceremony and the car procession.

Do your know where can I watch or buy the other weddings?

I have watched on TV following weddings:

Crown Prince Frederik and Mary (Denmark, my favourite so far)
Crown Prince Felipe and Letizia (Spain)
Prince Charles and Mrs. Camilla Parker-Bowles (only partly)

I really enjoy to watch the arrival of (royal) guest and of cource the wedding ceremony too. I really look forward for the wedding of Crown Princess Victoria. I would definitely watch it live on TV.

The only royal wedding I saw on TV live was The Earl and Countess of Wessex's wedding. I've seen some other royal weddings on the internet, but just that one on TV.
