A royal wedding: Princess Victoria of Sweden and Daniel Westling

The weekend saw a wedding that's as glitzy and glamorous as a Hollywood union. Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden tied the knot with her former fitness trainer, Daniel Westling, after 8 years of being together.

Their love story is one that's like straight out of a romantic novel that ends in a happy ever after with a marriage blessed by both sets of parents. Incidentally, the Princess Victoria's parents, King Carl Gustaf XVI and Queen Silvia, were wed on the same day 34 years ago.

The Crown Princess looked radiant and beautiful in her duchess satin wedding gown with a 5-meter train attached to the waist. She wears a tiara, the same one the Queen wore on her own wedding, with her veil.

The princess was escorted by the King as she walked down the aisle to meet her groom.

They're just so regal and beautiful...

Of course, the groom was in a dashing tuxedo. I think his glasses added a bit of charm to his overall look.

The next photo shows him alongside the Princess' brother, Prince Carl Philip, on the tiffany blue carpet.

Queen Silvia and Princess Madeleine complete Sweden's royal family. They look absolutely gorgeous in their respective gowns.

Daniel's parents were also in attendance for their son's very special day.

The wedding was well-attended by over 1,000 guests, including royalties and aristocrats from different countries. And because it was a royal wedding, everyone was indeed dressed to the nines. You can see the royal couple's wedding guests here.

Princess Victoria and now Prince Daniel, Duke of Vastergotland, look so happy and in love. Let's all wish them to have a happy and successful marriage.
