This Danish prince had a beautiful bride.
An elegant lady at his side.

Nice pictures, but an miserable marriage, which ended in divorce. Alexandra calculated everything to look perfect. Too bad she didn't love her prince.

No reason to believe the marriage was not a happy one early on. Or do you have some inside information to share?

Hate the dress but she always looked the part, big hair, big dress, big trains. But i agree they never looked like a couple, you'd never have put the pair of them together in a million years.

I like the fact that Queen Margrethe II presented Alexandra with the Alexandrine Drop Tiara. How splendid that the name of the tiara, Alexandrine, is similar to Alexandra's name.

Are you able to watch this outside Denmark?
https://www.dr.dk/bonanza/serie/453/...til-brylluppet

It's entire coverage of the wedding-party as televised on one of the public service networks, and it covers non-stop from the guests arriving, the speeches and the wedding waltz close to midnight.

Thank you so much for finding and posting this! What a wonderful documentation of Danish social history; lovely to see the little vignettes of Prince Henrik's 60th birthday dance! I was curious about the church where Prince Joachim and Alexandra were married: it looks much grander than the one where Mary and Prince Frederik took their vows. Could you share why that particular church was chosen, even though I realize it was a long time ago (Queen Margrethe's gown was stunning!) and the marriage has not lasted the test of time. Mange tak

You are welcome.

It was probably mentioned at the time, but I can't recall why.
A good guess would be because because Copenhagen Cathedral was pretty much reserved for the Crown Prince, and because Holmens Kirke, the Naval Church was too small and logistically impractical considering the time of year.
Here the guests simply went straight from the church to a nice warm tent.

As for the church, that was Frederiksborg Palace Church.
And being a palace very much designed to impress, the interior must fit the exterior.
It's today the home of the National History Museum.

I doubt the size was the reason. I have been in both churches and in my estimation the Naval Church is bigger than Frederiksborg Castle Church. Also, the Naval Church was the wedding church of Queen - then Crown Princess - Margrethe and Henrik. And if it was big enough for the wedding of a crownprincess, it is also big enough for the wedding of a prince.

I guess the fact that it was winter played a role in the decision. Because the newlyweds and their guests could walk from the church into the castle without having to face the cold, and the bridal couple had their pictures taken there. But the dinner was actually held in Fredensborg Palace - and not in a tent but in Kuppelsalen.

Whatever the reason Frederiksborg Castle was a beautiful setting.

I stand corrected.

And what you are saying sounds very plausible to me.
