And the Hereditary Princess of Liechtenstein, born Princess of Bavaria, was also present.

As for Hubertus's relation to the bride (for the curious)

Charles Edward, Duke of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha--Sybilla--Carl Gustav--Victoria
Charles Edward, Duke of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha--Friedrich Josias--Andreas--Hubertus

Links to a HQ group photo--though I didn't see the Wessexes which was odd (unless I"m just blind)

There will be an official wedding book published--apparently with some minor errors according to the other forums but with enough great photos to make it worth the while.

And a tidbit:
The Crown Princess is wearing Queen Sofia's lace veil. It is the same veil that was worn by Crown Princess Victoria's mother, Queen Silvia, at her marriage to King Carl Gustaf in 1976. This veil was given by Queen Sofia to her youngest son, Prince Eugen. Prince Eugen then passed the veil on to Princess Sibylla, who wore it under a garland of myrtle at her marriage to Prince Gustaf Adolf in Koburg in 1932. Queen Sofia's veil was also worn by the Princesses Désirée in 1964, Margaretha in 1964 and Christina in 1974.

And a last to link--to a site with a ton of good photos:

A look on the veil as it was 34 years ago on june 19th 1976,the wedding of King Carl XVI Gustav and Queen Silvia:

Awwwww, Thankyou Darling Lucien.
I've begun watching it via youtube and have almost got to the procession home. I cry that much through it that I have to watch it again and again and again oh :'( it's just so beautiful.

I'm pleased you sent me the link as I was worried I was missing something from my own youtube. :-* :-*

The last scene is very odd. He is a little bit peculiar, or not?

The Expressen followed the couple and disturbed their honeymoon. But they are to nice, and give the reporter an interview. Then they will no more follow Victoria and Daniel.

Many users were angry about it.

I thought Kelly was one of the most elegant guests there wearing the diamond and turquoise tiara and necklace of her handsome husbands great grandmother the last Duchess of Coburg (who was also Carl Gustaf's maternal grandmother).

I agree Kelly looked spectacular. It's not always that the jewelry goes perfectly with the dress and she did it for this occasion. The simple elegance of the dress is great.

Georg Friederick is not on the guest list. Interesting as the highest ranking German royal.

Also interesting is the guest list is in order of the immediate royal and groom's famillies, then other royals listed by country in alphabetical order. Even the word "former" is in alphabetic position. All except "germany", which is listed last. Is that due to the fact the Germans are actually not legal title holders?

He might very well have been invited,but ,as I said before he might,or guests might have declined for one reason or another.That happens.That's OK.

Btw,there is no specific or special bond between him and Crown Princess Victoria,there are so many loose royals in germany but only a few can call
themselves family friends.Besides,Hansi was there,a Hohenzollern who took the honneurs,and is close as HM The King as he is his  brother in law.

One of the friends of the bride and groom who attended the wedding is a woman who used to work for me! Imagine that.
