On 5 July Prince Amedeo of Belgium married Elisabetta Maria Rosboch von Wolkenstein (in short Lili Rosboch) at the Basilica di Santa Maria in Trastevere in Rome, Italy. Some pictures by Dutch photographer Bernard Rübsamen can be found here It seems it was a lovely wedding, although it was pretty warm. Beautiful bride, gorgeous wedding gown by Valentino. For me it was simply too far away and too expensive at the moment.
A few more interesting weddings this weekend. Princess Theresa zu Oettingen-Oettingen und Oettingen-Spielberg, the 30-year-old daughter of Fürst Albrecht and Fürstin Angela, married Carl Christian Oetker “Charly” in an oecumenical service at the Pfarrkirche St. Jakob in Oettingen, Germany, on 12 July. He is a son of Richard Oetker and his first wife Marion Busch. Doesn’t his family name sound familiar to you? Yes, he is a member of the family running the company “Dr. Oetker”, producer of baking powder, cake mixes, pudding, etc. The civil wedding took place in Oettingen the previous week. The bride of course looked lovely, as you can see in the Augsburger Allgemeine.The couple celebrated with over 600 guests. Rumours in Oettingen are that the hereditary prince will marry next year.
But another hereditary prince did marry on 12 July … Hereditary Prince Alexander von Isenburg. After having married civilly at home in Birstein on 14 June, he now married Sarah Lorenz also religiously. Place of the event was the Benedictine Abbey of Frauenwörth on the “Fraueninsel” (The Women’s Island) in Lake Chiemsee. The wedding mass was celebrated by the Auxiliary bishop of Fulda, Prof. Dr. Karlheinz Dietz and Konrad Kronast. Among the guests were members of the Dutch royal family: Pieter van Vollenhoven, Prince Pieter-Christiaan van Oranje-Nassau, Van Vollenhoven, Prince Floris (who was one of the witnesses of the groom) and Princess Aimée van Oranje-Nassau, Van Vollenhoven, Prince Jaime and Princess Viktória de Bourbon de Parme, as well as Albert Brenninkmeijer and Princess Carolina de Bourbon de Parme. Other guests were Fürst Alexander and Fürstin Nadja Anna zu Schaumburg-Lippe, Fürst Philipp and Fürstin Leonille zu Stolberg-Wernigerode, Elizabeth Herzogin in Bavaria with her two children, Hereditary Prince Hubertus and Hereditary Princess Kelly von Sachsen-Coburg und Gotha, Princess Maria Theresia and Princess Elisabeth von Thurn und Taxis, Fürst Wolfgang Ernst zu Ysenburg and Büdingen. And of course all four siblings of the groom with their families. A very nice photo gallery can be found at Rosenheim24.de. About 300 people celebrated with the couple. Bride and groom took them on a boat tour on the Chiemsee. On 16 August the home coming of the bride will be celebrated in Birstein.
