A Royal Wedding Reception at Nymphenburg Palace


 From Tatler:

He is a Bavarian prince who will one day become head of one of Germany’s most influential noble families. So it was only fitting that Ludwig of Bavaria celebrated his recent nuptials with a spectacular reception at Nymphenburg Palace (Schloss Nymphenburg) – one of Europe’s most opulent royal residences. Following a Catholic service in the heart of Munich (during which the bride reportedly fainted), Prince Ludwig and his Dutch-Canadian wife, Sophie Evekink, celebrated with a reception hosted at the palace by Ludwig’s cousin and Head of the House of Wittelsbach, Duke Franz of Bavaria. Dressed in their finest hats and sharpest suits, family and friends congregated beneath a cloudless sky in the sprawling grounds to toast the newlyweds. Among their number were the Prince and Princess of Prussia, the Margrave and Margravine of Baden, and Hereditary Prince Ernst August and Hereditary Princess Ekaterina of Hanover. Later, a white tie ball was held. (Read more.)
