Joachim & Marie: official photos plus

Photos © Steen Brogaard/¡Hola!/Berlingske Tidende

Official wedding photos from Joachim's and Marie's wedding were taken at Schackenborg on Saturday after the church ceremony by Steen Brogaard. Joachim and Marie partied into the night with their guests and stayed at Schackenborg for their wedding night. They took their time saying goodbye to Marie's family yesterday, some of whom went walking through Møgeltønder. Part of the entertainment during the night was a fireworks and light show. The midnight snacks included sausages from a typical Danish sausage/hotdog stand, the Børges Pølsevogn Stand, which was transported by Prince Joachim from Copenhagen where it usually resides on one of the city squares.

Added: According to B.T., Prince Joachim gave a very romantic and moving speech addressed to Marie at the wedding dinner at Schackenborg and it was in French. This meant that some of those who understood French apparently shed a tear or two. Marie's father also gave a warm speech expressing his joy that Marie had found Joachim and suggesting only the best is good enough for her. The Regent Couple did not give a speech on this occasion. The Regent Couple had spoken the evening before however at the party they had given at Gråsten Palace, where they expressed their joy about Marie and the marriage.

    B.T. 'Joachim og Marie: Bryllupsnat hjemme på slottet' - Joachim and Marie: wedding night at home in the castle
    They were celebrating together till the morning light with Joachim and Marie, who didn't really surprise by staying put at home for the wedding night.
    It was a beautiful wedding party for Princess Marie and Prince Joachim. The Danish royal family came in force for the wedding and then Sunday morning Marie's family and friends enjoyed the lovely sunshine in Møgeltønder and relaxed after the wedding.
    The party went until the early morning and was fueled by 18 bigband musicians from Prinsens Musikkorps who played the last number at four in the morning.
    There was dancing and Marie danced with several royals and got some firsthand experience as a princess.
    The atmosphere was still on a high when the last visitors from the wedding party left Schackenborg Castle at 5.30am. There was lots of laughter, fun and games among the younger guests.
    Some hours earlier the older generation had left, among them Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik.
    Crown Prince Frederik looked like he had a lovely evening when he zoomed out of the the castle in the small hours with Mary. He looked very happy for his little brother and on the way home to Gråsten Palace he drank a bottle of water in the royal car. It was needed to dilute Prince Henrik's wines...and the Danish sausages from the Copenhagen vender brought to the wedding party by Prince Joachim.
    Before the departure the Crown Prince took part in surrounding the bridal couple for the traditional bridal waltz with family and Joachim's best friends. It ended with Prince Joachim getting his socks cut up into peices [a Danish tradition].
    Both Fredrik and Mary now look forward to coming events, the marking of his 40th birthday tomorrow, and the subsequent party next Saturday at Fredensborg Palace for the popular Crown Prince and his wife.
