Since I had a PM request to post some of Xenia Leeds's wedding, I thought this was perhaps the best place to post them:

You're very welcome, Svetabel. I can't believe I can have any pictures you haven't seen! LOL These came from an old magazine covering the wedding. The last is just a crop of the couple from the well-known group photo. The wedding received a fair amount of coverage in the US and European magazines--moreso than her sister's wedding. That one was harder to come by photos of and they're really just the ones that are already posted.

I had bought a postcard of this photo when it was on ebay some years ago. I always liked it because of the relative informality of the shot as compared to the more formal group photos later.

I love her dress it looks so long (which is most of the appeal for me), however I imagine if one didn't have help it might be a bit difficult to walk in.

Chevalier was sent by Queen Victoria to provide her with multiple detailed drawings of the wedding--the only one of her children's wedding she did not attend. He came back with dozens of group and individual sketches--including most of the pre-eminent women of the event and gave detailed listings of their jewels, clothing, etc...
