Marie's wedding
« on: September 24, 2009, 07:49:40 PM »
Are there photos or paintings about Marie's wedding?
Or some interesting facts about it?

Can you talk about her engagement too?
Did she felt love for her husband Alexander III?
Or was it just only another political marriage?

Here's a full version of the same image of f the wedding of Maria Feodorovna and Alexander:



Apparently Dagmar's parents, Christian IX and Queen Louise, did not attend Dagmar's wedding because they thought they would not be able to reciprocate the lavish celebrations of the Russian Imperial court.

I've never seen either..only this picture.  It looks like there were no photos of Nicholas & Alexandra's wedding either, though Tuxen did the lovely painting.  They don't seem to have started taking regular imperial wedding photos till late in the century. The earliest one I've seen if the of the wedding of Grand Duchess Constantine. Minnie's wedding dress would have been a formal cloth of silver court dress in this case.

Dagmar's wedding was the begining of her love affair with grandeur, she could never become little dagmar again.
