Claire was stunning in a custom-made Elie Saab wedding gown, featuring floral Chantilly lace motifs, crystals and pearl sequins. Her lace and tulle veil was anchored by the Grand Ducal family’s larger floral diamond tiara. The bride also wore a pair of diamond earrings borrowed from her mother-in-law, Grand Duchess Maria Teresa, who wore the earrings at her own wedding in 1981 (they were also worn by Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie on her wedding day).

Among the guests were all the groom’s paternal aunts and uncles with many of their children; Prince Amedeo, Princess Maria Laura and Prince Joachim of Belgium, Pierre Casiraghi and his girlfriend Beatrice Borromeo, the Prince and Princess de Ligne, as well as various Austrian Archdukes.
