A Modern Bride

I came across this picture of the two marriages of Princess Marie-Christine of Belgium, to Paul Drucker (1981) and Jean-Paul Gourges (1989). The bride's rather brashly contemporary style on both occasions is a striking contrast to the quiet, traditional dignity of her niece Princess Mathilde's wedding dress.

I wish I could find wedding photographs of Marie-Christine's younger sister, Princess Marie-Esméralda, but I gather that hers was a very private ceremony.
