The face of the groom with the bridal crown is not seen. Actually I'd say the bridal pair are GD Vladimir and Maria Pavlovna.

You mean the gent who s puttting the crown in serge s head? I think its Gd Vladimir Alexandrovich and right  behind him is Maria Pavlovna



I have no doubt that the bride is Gdss Elisabeth Fyodorovna. Its her face




Accuracy in every face in this kind of illustration was very weird tho

I still can't believe that's GD Sergei's wedding.

Here's the only one of Sergei-Elizaveta's wedding I've ever seen (except that sketch in their bridal clothes)

Interesting that Marva did have a photo taken with her wedding dress and jewels while Ella (the most beautiful bride) did not.

Interesting that it's 5 or 6 time when you call her MaRva. So it's not a mistype or a mistake as you always readily admit - it's how you pronounce her nickname.
Her nickname was MaVra. And once again I remind that was not called right into her face.

It's too bad there are no photos or illustrations of the service for Olga Alexandrovna and Nicholas Kulikovsky, but I bet there are a lot of reasons for that: it was wartime, it wasn't an "important" wedding (he was a commoner), the church was apparently quite dark.

The main reason is that taking photos was forbidden inside the church.

I think they have no such problems with the Romanovs who got married in France.
