After the civil ceremony and the gala dinner that welcomed some of the world’s most glittering royalties, the church ceremony today finally highlighted the two-day festivities of the wedding of Grand Duke Guillaume and the former Countess Stephanie de Lannoy, at the Cathedral of our Lady of Luxembourg.
Crowds began erupting in cheers after Grand Duke Guillaume, 30, arrived with his mother, Grand Duchess Maria Teresa. Meanwhile, the new Grand Duchess, 28, was given away by her brother Count Jehan de Lannoy. She looked regal and every inch a royal bride in her Elie Saab wedding dress, with its four-meter train adding the glass and grandeur that rivaled the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
The wedding dress highlights three-quarter length sleeves and a silk tulle veil. Silver floral motif adorned it. She wore her own family’s tiara. The attendants, meanwhile, wore the traditional blue and orange Nassau colors. The ceremony was conducted in English and French and a minute of silence was observed in honor of the Grand Duchess’ late mother, Countess Alix de Lannoy, who passed away last August.
