My Weddings

Since 1998 I have attended many royal and noble weddings. I have been an onlooker, but also as a journalist. Sometimes I have even been able to take pictures if I were outside. I have attended a few weddings either as a reporter or one time even as a guest. My very first royal wedding was in May 1998 and many more followed.
