The Wedding of Charlene

From 1530, the first guests arrive at the Palace. They will take up to 800 people, located in an arc behind the bride and groom, in the courtyard, transformed for the occasion into a cathedral in the open. But to get there, they will have walked a red carpet, red carpets similar to used by the stars during the first or major events like the Oscar, with mandatory stop at the many accredited photographers. The red carpet will then be signed by the bride and groom, cut into pieces and sold for charity sponsored by the couple.

Prince Albert II enters, wearing a white suit any rifleman. Charlene Wittstock then raised the red carpet, the arm of her father. The bride wears an Armani gown with a train 20 meters long, but does no jewelry. Only a diamond brooch mounted trembling, loaned by Princess Caroline, holding her veil (an idea to steal from!). One can then see her wedding dress, white duchess silk, with embroidery in the shape of flowers, while strung readings of the Bible, made ​​by the niece of Albert II, Pauline Ducruet and Charlotte Casiraghi.

 The bride and groom retire to the palace chapel to sign the marriage records, with their witnesses, Chris Le Vine and Donatella Knecht de Massy.

The couple then joined his hybrid car convertible, under a shower of rose petals thrown by the Monegasque gathered on Palace Square. They are followed by a procession of small bridesmaids, dressed in traditional costume Monaco.

The royal couple returns to the palace for official photo shoots, under the lens of master photographer Patrick Demarchelier. Only ask the bride and groom, their witnesses and then finally with the heads of state.
