Naturally a number of Greek royals were also in attendance for the society wedding, including King Constantine, Queen Anne Marie, Crown Prince Pavlos, Crown Princess Marie-Chantal, Prince Nikolaos, Princess Tatiana, Princess Irene, Prince and Princess Michael of Greece and Princess Olympia.

While several royal figures filled the pews of the cathedral, others walked down the aisle with the bridal party. Queen Maxima’s daughters Princess Alexia and Princess Ariane served as flower girls, while Prince Aristidis of Greece, Prince Pietro Moncada di Paterno, and Prince Salentin of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg were page boys.

Queen Maxima looked pretty in pink wearing a lace dress by Elie Saab to the ceremony. Likewise, Marie-Chantal added color to the festivities donning an emerald coat. The mum-of-five later changed for the reception into a frilled, floral frock. Sharing a picture from the party, Marie-Chantal wrote, “Yes what a fantastic night! @bea2502 @carosieber #filipposandmarianna.”

The reception appears to have been held at Syon House in west London. Guests were treated to a performance by American musician Nile Rodgers. Marie-Chantal’s husband, Crown Prince Pavlos shared a video of their daughter Princess Olympia dancing up a storm at the reception alongside Nile. Olympia looked chic wearing a grey number to the party. Prince Harry’s ex-girlfriend Chelsy Davy also looked elegant for the royal-studded party wearing a black gown.
