Royal Wedding in Hanover: The Guests (Part 1)
Today in Hanover, Hereditary Prince Ernst-August of Hanover married Ekaterina Malysheva. Here are some of the guests, in no particular order...
Margrave Max and Margravine Valerie of Baden, née Archduchess Valerie of Austria, with their son Prince Michael and his wife Princess Christina of Baden.
Count Friedrich of Ortenburg and his wife Countess Christine, née Baroness of Wangenheim, with their sons Max and Albert, who were two of the page boys.
Count Karl of Solms-Laubach and I presume one of his daughters.
Andrés and Lauren Santo Domingo.

Prince Heinrich of Hanover, uncle of the groom, his wife Princess Thyra, née von Westernhagen, and their sons Prince Albert and Prince Julius.

Prince Andreas and Princess Alexandra of Leiningen. She is a born Princess of Hanover and aunt of the groom.
Princess Mafalda of Hesse and Rolf Sachs.
Pierre Casiraghi, Beatrice Borromeo and Charlotte Casiraghi - the Casiraghis, of course, being stepsiblings of the groom.

Pierre Casiraghi being asked a few questions by a reporter...
...and giving a wave to the crowd.
Charlotte Casiraghi and Ben Silvester Strautmann, boyfriend of Princess Alexandra of Hanover.
Rounding out the Casiraghi trio is Andrea Casiraghi. His son was a page boy and his daughter a flower girl, so I presume his wife Tatiana was also in attendance.
And another one of Andrea Casiraghi
Constantin von Veltheim, who was one of the ushers.
Princess Olga of Leiningen, cousin of the groom, and her sisters-in-law Princess Isabell and Princess Viktoria of Leiningen, née Princess of Prussia.
Eleanor Balfour possibly with her brother George.
Stephan Weil, Minister-President of Lower Saxony. Though I didn't seem them Gerhard Schröder, former Chancellor of Germany, and Christian Wulff, former President of Germany, were apparently among the guests.
Dimitri Chandris and Lydia Forte with her father Rocco Forte.
Prince Alexander of Schaumburg-Lippe with his partner Mahkameh Navabi.
