Andrea, also 29 is the eldest son of Caroline, Princess of Hanover and the late Stefano Casiraghi. Andrea is the grand son of the famous Princess Grace Kelly. The couple met 7 years ago while both were at school in Paris, and they have a 5 month old son, Sasha.
A private wedding in Monaco
The bride and groom are known for their laid back style, and as such their nuptials eschewed the pomp and ceremony normally associated with Royal Weddings. The bride chose a full skirted white lace and silk organza v necked Missoni dress with a bodice embroidered with raffia and silk threads, and baby Sasha wore matching organza bloomers. No crown for this princess, Tatiana wore a simple garland of white flowers in her hair and flat silver sandals. The groom chose a dark suit with a crisp white shirt and blue dotted tie.
Following the civil ceremony at Monaco’s Royal Palace, the happy couple posed for official photographs with Daphne, their pet Boston terrier before joining 400 guests, including Prince Albert and Princess Charlene of Monaco in the garden for an al fresco lunch by the palace’s pool. Mother of the groom Princess Caroline wore a red Karl Lagerfeld gown.
As a rock/reggae band performed, guests lounged informally on picnic blankets which had been laid out on the grass for a casual reception in keeping with the boho lifestyle of the couple. Guests drank the blue coloured pastis which is made locally, and just as the sun was at its fullest the daughters of Princesses Caroline and Stephanie led a charge into the pool. Designer Karl Lagerfeld chose that moment to arrive, and the lunch was also attended by several members of the Missoni family.
Celebrations continued that evening at Hotel de Paris, located on the main square of Monaco, where the bride wore a long sleeved white Valentino gown, and the groom chose a tux.
To conclude, 2013’s Monte Carlo Royal Wedding was simple, elegant, discreet, and in one of the world’s best places.
All of our best wishes for the Newleyweds.The Monte Carlo wedding of Andrea Casiraghi,
