Some things to note from the guest list: Mary's immediate family from Tasmania attended, but her brother John Stuart Donaldson and his family did not. There was a Scottish contingent of relations who also attended the wedding. Frederik and Mary invited their staff, including Mette Hansen, who helps takes care of Christian. As well as their own staff, they included court staff and officials including Ove Ollerup and Per Thornit. Mary's friend and stylist/personal assistant Anja Camilla Alajdi was invited, as was the former nanny of Frederik and Joachim, Else Kirstine Pedersen. Also, musicians Palle Mikkelborg and his wife Helen Margaret Mikkelborg who played so beautifully at Mary's and Frederik's wedding were among the guests. A good sized contingent of Mary's friends from Australia attended. There were all the Queen's hofdames as well as Mary's, Victoria Bernstorff-Gyldensteen. Princess Alexandra's private secretary, Christine Lyng was invited, too. Of course there are many other notable and protocol types on the list, but these are picked out as interesting for their personal connections to Mary and Frederik and the Royal Family.
