Having accepted the role of a lifetime, on September 5, 2009 Italian actress Isabella Orsini walked the red carpet that led inside the Antoing church, where Prince Edouard Lamoral Rodolphe de Ligne de la Tremoille– officially her husband for the past two days after their civil ceremony— waited to once again declare his love for his bride.
Orsini, who was last seen on screen in Il Sangue e la Rosa (The Blood and The Rose), clutched a bouquet of crimson roses as she strolled down the aisle in a Gerald Watelet creation, the elegance of the ensemble was enhanced with the addition of a HollemensThiery tiara topped with aquamarines and diamonds, Fraticappuccini reports.
Following the exchange of vows, the peal of church bells announced the happy news to the village as the newlyweds waved to the well wishers who had gathered outside the Belgian house of worship. Cherubic children, their hair wreathed in halos of tiny roses, gathered round to watch the bride release a dove– the sound of its beating wings no doubt matching that of the bride and groom’s joy-filled hearts as they climbed into a carriage which whisked them away for post-wedding celebrations.
