Hereditary Prince Franz Albrecht zu Oettingen-Spielberg married Baroness Cleopatra von Adelsheim von Ernest on July 9th in a religious service in Oettingen, Bavaria. The bride and groom, who come from illustrious families, were married in civil ceremony at the bride’s family estate in Adelsheim, Germany, earlier this summer. The religious wedding and reception were attended by celebrities and members of German Royal Houses.
The religious service took place at St. Jacob Church in Oettingen with 800 guests in attendance. Baroness Cleopatra was led down the aisle by her father, artist Louis von Adelsheim. The maids of honour were Princess Isabella Gaetani von Lobkowicz and Beatrice Borromeo Casiraghi, daughter-in-law of Princess caroline of Monaco and Hanover.
After the service, there was a South American–inspired party, before dinner in the Hall of Oettingen Castle. After the wedding cake was served, the guests made their way to another part of the Castle, which had been transformed into an enchanted forest, for the reception.
For the wedding, the bride wore a floral lace dress by Luisa Beccaria and the glittering Oettingen-Spielberg tiara, which has previously been worn by her mother- and sister-in-law. The groom wore morning dress with a blue tie.
For the reception, the new Hereditary Princess of Oettingen-Spielberg wore a stunning gown with organza flowers and stitched diamond and pearl details by her friend, the couturier Sandra Mansour.
