Couture Wedding: Andrea Casiraghi, second in line of succession to the throne of Monaco and Tatiana Santo Domingo (in Valentino custom Haute Couture)--wedding in Gstaad Switzerland

Last month a "Royal Wedding" occurred to not much fanfare: the wedding of the second in line to the Monagesque throne, 29 year-old Andrea Casiraghi (Princess Caroline of Hanover's eldest son) and Tatiana Santo Domingo, heiress and socialite, in a Roman Catholic wedding in the village of Rougemont in Switzerland. Tatiana's father who passed away in 2009, was listed as the second richest man in Colombia by Forbes , and her mother is from Brazil.

Wedding Gown--and Cape--for Tatiana Santo Domingo by Valentino Haute Couture custom

The beautiful 30-year-old bride wore a bespoke Valentino Haute Couture gown and an elegant cream fur cape. Her long dark hair was swept into an chignon and held in place with a glittering tiara.
Monaco's royal Andrea, 29, who arrived at the church by car, sported a smart grey suit. The 11th century church had been transformed into a winter wonderland, adorned with boughs and urns of flowers, some of which came from Paris. Candles added to the magical atmosphere. Andrea and Tatiana, who are a notoriously private couple, had made every effort to keep the wedding an intimate affair and Monegasque police stood guard outside. Guests, who included, Andrea's mother Princess Caroline, Prince Albert...

Charlotte Casiraghi (above photo), Princess Alexandra, Pierre Casiraghi and his girlfriend Beatrice Borromeo, all arrived in cars with blacked-out windows. The wedding party were also shielded by dark umbrellas. Representing Tatiana's side of the family were her mother Vera Rechulski and younger brother Julio Mario Santo Domingo as well as numerous relations. Her brother was thought to be giving her away as Tatiana's father Julio Mario Santo Domingo passed away in 2009.

Tiara Bride: Tatiana Santo Domingo in the car on the way to her wedding, looking every bit a "Royal Bride"--Could she be the next "Monaco Princess"? That multimillion dollar tiara tells me yes, possibly.

Beatrice Borromeo: Girlfriend of Pierre Casiraghi (brother of Andrea, the Groom) and member of the ancient aristocratic House of Borromeo. Borromeo wore a custom-made camel-colored coat and golden silk gown from Armani Prive, naturally:
