Gosh ! I am impressed with the bride's mother !
As if she had been dragged in against her will...
Or is the lady sick ? Not the happiest face the day of her daughter's wedding...

Were there any "known" cousins of de Tornos or von Steinhart family?

I am afraid I wouldn't recognise members of de Tornos or von Steinhart family.

I am convinced now that the lady in pink in the company of Archduchess Margherita of Austria-Este, is her eldest daughter Archduchess Maria Beatrix of Austria-Este, Countess von Arco-Zinneberg. The lady in black is her eldest daughter Countess Anna-Teresa von Arco-Zinneberg. French version of 'Royals' magazine has a clear picture.
Additional guest: Prince Pierre d'Arenberg.
