There aren't photos of her wedding, apparently--at least none I've ever seen reproduced in any book or contemporary magazine. I bought a postcard that showed her wedding dress on display in a store window and there are composite faux photos of her as a 'bride'. There was a lot of attention paid to her wedding at the time in both English and German magazines and zilch. There were a number of photos of her SsIL Cecile and Sophie in their bridal carriages but not official posed photos. We had discussed earlier that the latter generations of Hohenzollerns don't seem to have had their weddings photographed. Dona was photographed as a bride as was Irene. As for blood Hohenzollerns, Sophie was but Moretta (her first wedding), Mossy and Charlotte, I'm not sure. There were numerous sketches but no photographs. Later postwar Hohenzollerns were photographed--Cecile Jr, Wilhelm Jr, Louis Ferdinand & Kyra and so on.
They also serve who only stand and wait--John Milton

VL has always looked happy and cheerful in her photos. She was unique among royal familly members of europe and GB in that character. She always appeared lively, happy, full of life, eager to please, and a joy to be around.

Wilhelm saw in her much potential. I know she took her positions seriously, but it also seems she had an rare (among royals) sense of reality and self worth that led her to the type of dispostiion she displays in her pictures.
