On Saturday, June 13, 2015, His Royal Highness Prince Carl Philip of Sweden married the love of his life, Miss Sofia Hellqvist, inside the Slottskyrkan at the Kungliga Slottet in Stockholm. The lovely ceremony was presided over by Lars-Göran Lönnermark, head Predicate and Bishop Emeritus, and Michael Bjerkhagen, Pastor of the Royal Court Parish.
The processional song was Athair ar Neamh by Enya. Hymns during the ceremony were #289: Wide is, o Lord, Your Love, like Beach and Meadow and #200: Go Seek, My Heart, the Joys of Life. The traditional wedding songs Fix You by Coldplay and Umbrella by Rihanna were also included in the ceremony.
“…silk crepe overlaid with Italian silk organza. Couture lace made by José María Ruiz was applied to the dress and the train was hand-cut and then hand-stitched in Ida Sjöstedt’s atelier in Stockholm.
The veil in thin bridal tulle was also hand-embroidered with sheer cotton lace. The tiara is a gift from The King and Queen to Princess Sofia.
The bride carried a cascade style bouquet of garden roses with a traditional sprig of myrtle from Sofiero. The flowers were in shades of cream and coral.”
