The German Duchess Sophie von Württemberg married a French earl.
The solemn ceremony of marriage was held last Saturday in the castle Tegernese in Germany. Officially, Sophie and Maximilien became husband and wife in September – the lovers signed at one of the registry offices of London. And not by chance – four years ago it was in this city that they met. And yesterday in Altshausen, Sophie and Maximilien staged a traditional wedding according to all the rules of aristocratic families.

At the Church of Saint-Quirin, the bride, surrounded by flower girls and boys, pages, appeared in a long white dress. The tender look of the bride was complemented by a lace veil and tiara. As it should be, Sophie’s father, Prince Philip of Württemberg walked her down the aisle. Maximilian, a French aristocrat, also did not depart from the traditions – he chose a classic three-piece suit with a tuxedo.
