I don't know whether there was a legal wedding as well or not. I am not a expert on German law concerning the approval of getting married in other countries. In Germany it is law that you must have a legal ceremony, only religious ones are not valid. I know that legal ceremonies performed in other countries are also valid but maybe religious weddings are not. So it could be that they also had to get married legally to get marriage approval in Germany...

In DK the religious wedding is legal binding.

Not really, as german authorities often recognize the marriage certificate without having it translated. Otherwise you will need an Apostille, which is granted from the danish Foreign office.

A Danish church wedding will be acknowledged in Germany by means of a translated wedding certificate with an apostille from the Danish Foreign Ministry! Most countries would accept such a document, but there used to be problems with some US states!

Maybe you know something about that, and I'll take your word for it!

There´s a photo from this wedding that I can´t find. It´s a photo of Princess Alexandra on her way down the stairs inside the castle... I think it´s in B/W.

Can someone track that one down? :) :) :)

I wrote to the DRF about this civil wedding and this is the answer from Gustav Grüner, who is private secretary for Pss Benedikte.
Quote:
Den 6. juni 1998 blev Prinsesse Alexandra og Greve Jefferson gift. Brylluppet holdtes på Graasten Slot og vielsen fandt sted i Graasten Slotskirke.

Dagen før - den 5. juni - var parret med flere på Gråsten Rådhus for her at modtage byens gave. Ved denne lejlighed var der ikke tale om en vielse.

Med mange venlige hilsener

Gustav Grüner
TRANSLATION
Quote:
On June the 6th 1998 Princess Alexandra and Count Jefferson got married. The wedding was held at Gråsten Castle and the ceremony itself took place in the church at Gråsten Castle.
The day before - June the 5th - was the couple at Gråsten Town Hall to receive the present from the city. At this occasion there was not talk about a ceremony.

Sincerely,
Gustav Grüner
So in short: There was no civil ceremony!

That's the spirit, FasterB!

Next job is finding the photo of Pcs. Alexandra in her wedding finery! I vaguely remember it; I believe that you're referring to the "wedding dress shot" taken before the bride is off to the church.
Unfortunately I don't keep the issues of Billed-Blad that far back. There's not enough room in the attic!

That´s exactly the photo I´m talking about. Pss Alexandra is on her way to the church and she´s walking down the stairs... The more I think about it the more I think it´s in colour, not B/W :)

It's nice that she went with an original dress but, I really dislike it. There's sonething about the design that did not appeal to me.

Princess Alexandra wore the Khedive of Egypt Tiara. She also wore the antique Irish lace veil worn by Crown Princess Margareta of Sweden and Queen Ingrid.
