After their civil wedding on Tuesday, it was time for Prince Félix and Princess Claire's religious wedding today. The couple had chosen the Basilique Saint Marie-Madeleine in Saint-Maximin-la-Sainte-Baume as the place to be and their families and (royal) friends had heard their call and came in multitudes.
We are going to publish a list of all the wedding guests sometime later tonight or tomorrow, depending if we will get new pictures to wade through. I can assure you that all of Prince Félix's maternal and paternal aunts and uncles were in attendance and brought along some of their offspring. Also spotted were Prince Philipp, Princess Isabelle, Prince Rudolf, Princess Tılsım and Prince Wenzeslaus of Liechtenstein.

Unfortunately, not many details about the wedding itself are not as of yet. We know, however, that the couple said 'I do' at exactly 11:47am. Just like Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume and Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie did last year, Prince Félix and Princess Claire chose to do so bilingually. While Guillaume and Stéphanie had opted for Luxembourgish and French, Claire and Felix went with French and German.
The vows went as following...
Félix (in German): "Claire, do you want to be my wife?"Claire (in French): "Yes, I do. And you Félix, do you want to be my husband?"Félix (in German): "Yes, I do."Claire (in French): "Félix, I take you as my husband and give myself to you."Félix (in German): "Claire, I take you as my wife and give myself to you."
Or so we all thought... According to a press release by the cour, the dresses of the witnesses, including Princess Alexandra, were by Tadashi Shoji. Grand Duchess Maria Teresa wore a fuchsia Armani number while Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie opted for Stéphanie Le Grelle and Princess Tessy for Calvin Klein as well as a hat by Jane Taylor. The mother of the bride wore Dior and a hat by Fiona Benett. The outfits for the flower girls and page boys were designed by Stephanie Staub.
