Archduke Karl of Austria and Princess Zita of Bourbon-Parma - 1911
 
Here's a couple of photos from the wedding of Princess Zita of Bourbon-Parma to Archduke Charles Franz Josef (later Emperor of Austria), in 1911.

oh, just love these pictures! She made such a pretty bride! With Grace K. perhaps my all time favorite!

Thanks so much for posting Elsa!

by the way, the old moustached man in the pictures, isn't that emperor Franz Josef, the widow of Sisi?

I think that what really sets these photos apart from some of the others from royal weddings of this era is the fact that Zita is actually smiling in most of them. It was customary for the couple to look stern, serene, official, and/or concentrating in their engagement/wedding photos at this time. Almost never happy (even if they were happy). Zita's smile makes these photos refreshing!

I like this group picture because the royal ladies who normaly avoid the sun have all different attitudes and the best one is the royal who remains in Zita's shadow. (the one on her left side).
Are they all Habsbourg and Bourbon Parme ?

It would be great to identify some people..I can just recognise Karl, Zita and the emperor

I love the tiara the bride is wearing.
