The late Grace Kelly's grandson, Louis Ducruet, has tied the knot with his college sweetheart Marie Chevallier.

The couple first met in 2011 in a nightclub in Cannes while attending the same business college and he now works as a recruiter for the soccer team Monaco AS while Marie is an events project planner.

They had two ceremonies over the weekend, the first a civil ceremony at the Prince's palace on Friday followed by a religious ceremony at the stunning Cathedral of Our Lady Immaculate on Saturday.

It is the same venue where Louis' grandparents Grace Kelly and Prince Ranier were married in 1956.

Marie appeared to have three different wedding gowns.

Barcelona designer Rosa Clara shared images of two of the gowns on social media.

The first broke with tradition: a white silk crepe culotte jumpsuit with embroidered lace a tthe waist and an open back.
