Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia's official wedding pictures released

Following their stunning wedding ceremony on Saturday 13 June, the first official portraits of Prince Carl Philip and his new wife Princess Sofia of Sweden have been released. The Swedish royal household, Kungahuset, shared five photographs of the pair with their family, guests and bridal party, taken shortly after they said "I do" at the royal chapel in Stockholm.

One snapshot shows the elated newlyweds standing arm-in-arm with one another, with Sofia looking radiant in her intricate lace wedding gown by Swedish designer Ida Sjöstedt while her handsome husband proudly debuts the new silver wedding band on his ring finger.

Two family-based portraits depict Sofia and Carl Philip with their parents and siblings. In one photo Sofia's mother and father Marie and Erik Hellqvist join Sweden's monarch King Carl XVI Gustaf and his wife Queen Silva, while another shows the prince and princess with their respective sisters, Lina and Sara Hellqvist and Crown Princess Victoria and Princess Madeleine of Sweden.
