Thank-you Kaiserin Alzbeta Sissi, I appreciate the support.

Actually, I have managed to piece together all the wedding pictures from the Royal Collection.

Now I'm pretty sure I can't post them here, but I might be able to send them to you (if this is also questionable, could someone let me know...?)

And eejm - are you saying it *is* Mary Adelaide of Cambridge or are you *guessing* it is her?

Here is a painting of a young Mary Adelaide - http://www.royalcollection.org.uk/egallery/object.asp?category=276&object=402300&row=1670

Actually, eejm, after another look, I agree - it does look like Mary Adelaide.

:)

In which case, the woman next to her must not be Feodora of Hohenlohe-Langenburg, but rather Augusta of Mecklenburg-Strelitz (nee Cambridge) and the gentleman to her left must be her husband, Frederick William of Mecklenburg-Strelitz.

Nicely spotted!

(1) QV & Albert's wedding (reviewed): Ernst II of SC&G (chap in blue to right of golden haired girl), Ernst I of SC&G (taller gent on right of Ernst II (he's holding a hat)), Queen Adelaide (to right of Ernst I), Albert & Victoria (in the middle, obviously), Lord Melbourne (holding sword), Prince Augustus of Sussex (skull-cap, on right of Victoria), Victoria (Duchess of Kent) (in between minister and woman in blue in foreground), Prince Adolphus of Cambridge (directly behind woman in blue in foreground), Princess Augusta of Cambridge (formerly of Hesse-Kassel) (on right of Adolphus).

The big not certains are: the red uniformed gentleman on the far right (who is standing next to the red dressed woman), the red dressed woman, the little golden haired girl, the woman in blue (directly in front of Adolphus of Cambridge) and the woman to her right.

Oh, and the bridesmaids.

Ah, well, that clears some things up!

Thank-you grandduchessella.

Although I'm still baffled who the man and woman beside Mary of Cambridge are and why she is holding on to the woman's dress...?

What the heck! Here are some images from some other British royal family nineteenth century weddings...

1863 Princess Alexandra m. Albert Edward-Edward VII:






Alexandra arrived a frugal Princess, her wedding gown is on display minus the lovely flounces that she put to other uses, so I won't post an image here of the gown as displayed.




See the note below the image - this is a re-posting from 2007.

1858 Princess Royal Victoria's wedding:


Her bridesmaids:


Princess Alice in 1862:



Princess Alice's bridesmaids:


Princess Helena:


Princess Helena's bridesmaids:


Princess Louise:




Helen of Waldeck-Pyrmont m. Prince Leopold:




Princess Beatrice:




Princess Louise m. Prince Arthur:




Marie (later Queen of Romania), daughter of Prince Alfred and Grand Duchess Maria Alexandrovna of Russia:


May of Teck's gown:


Queen Maud:


This is a re-posting, but germane to the topic:

Who's is the wedding in the last painting in the previous post?
A couple of corrections-the first photos identified as Princess Louise(after Princess Helena) are actually of Princess Louise of Prussia who married Prince Arthur
The first photo identified as princess Louse who married Prince Arthur is her niece Louise, Princess Royal who married the Duke of Fife

"Ha!" for a couple of reasons:

(1) The Duke of Cambridge looks like he's fallen asleep.
(2) The English Royals are so tiny!

Hee hee!

Do you have any photos of Beatrice's wedding, besides the ones shown? I've seen more, but can't seem to locate them. If you have any pictures of the bridesmade/flower girl dresses that would be wonderful, as I'm trying to re-create that dress. Thanks in advance!

Just gorgeous!  If it's possible to be in love with a thread, then I'm in love with this one!  Breathtaking photographs, portraits and etchings.  Those bridesmaids at Alice's wedding!  Thanks to all who have contributed to this treat.

I just wish the old one hadn't disappeared in the changeover. I had posted dozens of photos/illustrations there from Victoria & Albert up through Sarah and Andrew. Other people had contributed dozens more. Maybe now that this thread has been bumped up, some of the photos will be reposted.

Not 19th century, but early 20th. If I translated the caption correctly this is Queen Ena's wedding dress.

Stunning!
A couple of the dresses were tight fitting for the day. Which showed they weren't that prudish.

It looks like her dress so I would guess your translation is correct. Her dress had several images published at the wedding but because of the circumstances, very few of her in it--and no post-wedding formal ones. There were a couple images of her 'photoshopped' into the dress as well.
