High society wedding season in France kicked off in style this weekend with the union of Prince Amaury of Bourbon-Parma and his aristocratic bride Pélagie de Mac Mahon.
The happy couple exchanged vows in a ceremony at the Saint-Lazare Cathedral in Autun, on 8 July, with the bride, 33, looking elegant in a lavish white dress with lace sleeves.
Prince Amaury of Bourbon-Parma, 32, is the eldest child of Prince Charles-Emmanuel of Bourbon-Parma and Princess Constance de Ravinel.
The House of Bourbom-Parma is a cadet branch of the Spanish royal family with descendants spanning several European countries, including Italy and France.
His new wife is a descendant of General Macmahon who served as French president from 1875 to 1979 and is the sister to the Duke of Magenta.
The bride’s outfit featured a sparkling tiara with matching earrings and a classic net veil, which flowed across the Saint-Lazare Cathedral steps.
Meanwhile, the groom, 31, opted for a suave tailcoat suit jacket with a crisp waistcoat, dark grey pinstripe trousers, and a smart top hat.
The couple chose a white bouquet with foliage, which was echoed in the groom’s boutonnière and the playful flower crowns worn by the children.
Royal guests in attendance of the fabulous wedding include Prince Alexander of Schaumburg-Lippe with his wife, Princess Mahkameh.
