The Vow

Prince Philip of Serbia's wedding to graphic designer Danica Marinkovic was an expectedly lavish affair.

The youngest son of Serbian crown prince Aleksandar Karadjordjevic exchanged vows with the artist at Belgrade cathedral on Saturday in front of a relatively small number of guests (by royal wedding standards), including Queen Victoria of Sweden and Queen Sofia of Spain. The couple enjoyed a traditional ceremony, wearing red velvet and gold crowns and were lated flanked by rose petals as they left the church.

The bride chose a rather conservative dress: a simple white silk with sheer billowing sleeves and a dramatic bow around the waist.

It marked the first princely wedding in 95 years. The couple announced in July they would be marrying. "Their Royal Highnesses Crown Prince Alexander, Crown Princess Katherine and Princess Maria da Gloria Orleans-Braganza have great pleasure to announce that HRH Prince Philip is engaged to Ms. Danica Marinkovic, daughter of Mr. Milan Marinkovic – Cile and Mrs. Beba Marinkovic," the royal statement read.

Philip, now works in finance in London and Danica is the daughter of famous Serbian painter Milan Cile Marinkovic. She has French citizenship and is also based in London with her now-husband.
