Princess Stephanie of Monaco's son Louis Ducruet and Marie Chevallier are celebrating their first wedding anniversary, after tying the knot in two magical ceremonies over the weekend of 29 July 2019. The nuptials began with a civil ceremony at City Hall, after which the bride and groom celebrated with their close friends and family at the palace, and the Monegasque royal family were out in full force.

Saturday's ceremony took place at Monaco Cathedral. Marie looked gorgeous in a princess-style wedding gown, which featured a boat neckline, a fitted waist and a full skirt. Her sister-in-law Pauline Ducruet, a fashion designer, helped create the beautiful dress along with Atelier Boisanger, who revealed on Instagram that the dress is made of silk Zagar and embroidered Chantilly lace and took a whopping 300 hours to make. Pauline helped fix the bride's train before she walked down the aisle.

Around 200 guests attended the religious wedding at Monaco Cathedral, including Prince Albert of Monaco, Princess Caroline and Princess Stephanie, newlyweds Charlotte Casiraghi and Dimitri Rassam, Pierre Casiraghi and Beatrice Borromeo, Andrea Casiraghi and Tatiana Santo Domingo, and Princess Alexandra of Hanover. Prince Albert's wife Princess Charlene of Monaco was notably absent.

Guests were asked to hand their phones in at the start of the ceremony to prevent any photos from being leaked before the palace officially released them.

Marie changed into her third dress of the weekend, looking ready to party in a Rosa Clara mini dress, which featured embroidered lace and a tulle overcoat.

Before hitting the dancefloor, the couple cut into their seven-tier wedding cake that was decorated with dozens of red and white sugar flowers, alluding to the principality's flag. The cake was nearly one metre wide and stood two and a half metres tall. The finishing touch? Marie and Louis' initials inscribed on the cake. Guests were also treated to a spectacular fireworks display.
