Is there somewhere a wedding photo of Marie Pavlovna, Grand Duchess Vladimirovich (Duchess Marie of Mecklenburg-Schwerin)



Only a sketch of their wedding.

Thanks Svetabel!

Great to see this.
Does it look as if the bride is wearing the nuptial crown and the tiara, but not the earrings and the huge clasp?

Maria Paulovna would look good in those jewels.

It's a bit odd that the bride isn't dressed in the formal silver court dress most Romanov weddings had.  Did she have two ceremonies? I would have thought if so, then the orthodox one had the court dress.  I wonder if the artist has been given a description only to base the drawing from.

The description under the sketch says that's the Orthodox ceremony...I've re-read the newspaper article about their Orthodox wedding and - yes - the formal dress of the bride was exactly like in the picture.

I think Miechen was also married in her own faith too since she refused to convert at the time of her wedding.

Does anyone have portraits of other members of the imperial family that got married.  Like the past Czars and Czarinas, Grand Duchess Olga Alexandrovna's wedding to her first husband, and other members of the imperial family that aren't reigning?

Haven't saw Olga's first wedding in photos. Just the engagement photos...

Here is a portrait of the wedding of Alfred, Duke of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha and Grand Duchess Maria Alexandrovna.

I think I saw Alix of Wales somewhere and Dagmar. Too small to see.

I've posted these at Marie Feodorovna's thread but I think that they should to be here too for an easier finding:

Found these on a Russian site (abbisinka's livejournal), both are labeled as Alexander and Marie's wedding:
