Baroness Cleopatra von Adelsheim von Ernest married Hereditary Prince Franz Albrecht zu Oettingen-Spielberg in Bavaria, Germany earlier this month. For the wedding ceremony, the bride donned a long-sleeved gown that featured delicate floral motifs and a detachable, seven-meter train by Italian designer Luisa Beccaria. She completed her bridal look with a half updo embellished with a twinkling tiara. After exchanging vows (witnessed by royal guests including Prince Harry and bridesmaids Princess Isabella Gaetani von Lobkowicz and Countess Beatrice Borromeo Casiraghi), the newly married couple made their way to the colorfully decorated courtyard reception at Oettingen Castle for an elegant dinner.

Later in the evening, the bride let her hair down to showcase soft, tumbling waves and switched into a breathtaking bespoke wedding dress designed by Lebanese designer Sandra Mansour. The designer (who is also friends with the bride) riffed on the dress details in an interview with Vogue. “Cleo and I decided on the dress, which was made of dentelle Rachel—one of the most romantic fabrics out there. It also called for whimsical elements like organza flowers and stitched diamond and pearl details,” she revealed. The high-neckline, open-back silhouette featured a delicate belt, and made for a contemporary take on a royal wedding dress.
