Prince Carlos of Bourbon-Parma Marries

Having already been pronounced husband and wife in a June 12, 2010 civil ceremony, Prince Carlos Xavier of Bourbon-Parma– the nephew of Queen Beatrix of The Netherlands– and Annemarie Gualtherie van Weezel celebrated a religious blessing of their union on the afternoon of November 20, 2010.

The presence of Duke Carlos Hugo of Bourbon-Parma– the groom’s father, whose passing in August prompted the postponement of the church ceremony– was no doubt felt in the hearts of those who gathered at the Abbey of La Cambre in Brussels to witness the happy occasion.

Guests admired the diaphanous veil designed by Isabelle de Borchgrave which trailed gently behind the bride as she walked down the aisle in an ivory silk silhouette from Jacques Devos and Pamela Hoffman on her way to the altar, where the couple exchanged vows in both Dutch and French during a 30-minute ceremony, PZC.nl reports.

Following the nuptials, a Bentley bore the newlyweds to Chateau de la Hulpe, where they received the best wishes of family and friends.
