This weekend, Princess Nathalie of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg, niece of the Queen of Denmark, married her longtime love, Alexander Johannsmann during a religious ceremony at the castle of Bad Berleburg in Germany.
The couple had already tied the knot in a civil ceremony in May 2010 and are the proud parents of a son, Konstantin who is nearly a year old.
Their wedding was attended by their friends and family, who included the Danish royal house and the Greek royals. The latter turned up because Princess Nathalie’s other aunt, Anne Marie is the former Queen of Greece. Nathalie herself is the youngest daughter of Princess Benedikte, the middle sister of Queen Margrethe II and Queen Anne Marie.
Wearing a gown designed by Danish couturier Henrik Hviid and the Khedive of Egypt Cartier Tiara, the bride was all smiles as she and Alexander emerged from the church after the hour long ceremony. The wedding party and guests then attended the reception at the castle.
Princess Nathalie competes in horse dressing and has won many awards for her participation. Alexander Johannsmann’s family runs a company that provides horses for such competition. Along the way, Nathalie and Alexander met and fell in love.
Cheers to the couple!
