Jenny Alexandersson writes at her blog in Aftonbladet, that the king and the Queen arrived with Victoria and Daniel. Carl Philip and Tord Magnuson came into the church shortly before. Daniel's parents, Ewa and Olle looked very happy while coming to the church.

I like the colour and style of Victoria's outfit - and her headpiece is a little funky (funky in a good way).

Reading of the Banns?

If you decide to get married, you must order/call the wedding banns.
There are the state and the church banns, depending on how the
couple wants to marry. Both types are an announcement to the
public that a couple plans to marry and it's the public call to unknown
potential claims or rights. In some countries it's also called registration
for the wedding.

Lola 05-30-2010 07:41 AM

No matter, where you marry, you have to sign the so called "Hindersprövning"
A document saying you are not closely related to the person, you want to marry, and that you aren´t married already.
The one of Victoria & Daniel even was in the press
Snart finns inga hinder kvar för Victorias bröllop | Svensk Damtidning

So the wedding banns in church are actually obsolete, but it´s a tradition dear to many.

Carl-Philip and Tord are matching. Who is he btw?
So it's like a wedding license, in a sense.

Tord Magnusson is princess Christina husband.

(Haven't been able to find this as a seperate thread)

Victoria looks radiant.

Who is Patrick Sommerlath? A nephew of Sylvia's?

Lumutqueen 05-30-2010 02:30 PM

Yes he is Walther Sommerlaths son.

Donna Mia 05-30-2010 02:42 PM

I think they did good work on shaping Daniel to a more regal image. He looks good in the photographs. Does he always wear glasses? Have you ever seen him in contact lenses?

He had contact lenses at the engagement events. I think that he looks better with glasses. But we must not forget that Daniel was very ill and heavily medicated during the winter 2009.

Its so nice to see the parents of Victoria and Daniel together in one picture. I hope the next two banns will also be wonderful.

He does look better with glasses, sexier. ;):smile:

Donna Mia 05-30-2010 02:57 PM

The glasses do distinguish him more. Without glasses the couple has a similar appearance. Victoria and Daniel almost seem as if they could be related.
