Wedding of Archduke Imre and Archduchess Kathleen

Spiering Photography (via Rorate Caeli)

Can't say that I prefer the ceremonial of the Nuptial Mass in the Roman rite, regardless of whether it is according to the EF or the OF. I think it was at Rorate Caeli a while back talking about the procession of the bride down the aisle was not traditional - rather there should be a procession of the groom and bride (and everyone else, including the clergy)? The setting doesn't help me much, even if it is a sentimental favorite for some Christendom alumni. Neo-gothic architecture... I suppose it is now difficult for me to appreciate certain Latin artistic styles.

I imagine there had to be some security for the events.

An announcement of the royal nuptials here.

Something on the crowning in the Byzantine rite.
