Royal wedding season is officially upon us!

With Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's much-anticipated wedding on May 19 and Princess Beatrice's date to walk up the aisle with former nightclub manager Jack Brooksbank this autumn, we'll have had plenty of practice enjoying the fanfare that comes with a royal wedding.

Prince Christian of Hanover and Peruvian fashion designer Alessandra de Osma threw a lavish wedding on Friday in the bride's native Lima, where European royalty and their celebrity friends descended on the city for an event to remember.

Their choice of designation was fitting not only because of Alessandra's Peruvian roots, but it's where they first met in 2005 when she was a 14-year-old tour guide showing him around the city.

They had a civil ceremony in London back in October, but marked their big day with a beautiful ceremony at Lima's historic Basilica San Pedro in Lima.

The blushing bride, a fashion designer, opted for a traditional high neck lace gown by Jorge Vázquez, with the official Hanover Floral Tiara adoring her head, previously worn by sister-in-law Ekaterina Malyshev and Princess Caroline of Monaco for their respective weddings. Her father Ernesto de Osma walked her up the aisle, while Christian arrived to the ceremony arm in arm with his mother Chantal Hochuli.

As expected, the guestlist was a who's who of European monarchy, including Britain's Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, Monaco's Beatrice Borromeo and Pierre Casiraghi, Greece's Princess Olympia with her father Crown Prince Pavlos and legendary supermodel Kate Moss with her boyfriend Count Nikolai Von Bismarck.
