Louis, 29, – the hereditary Prince of Löwenstein-Wertheim-Freudenberg – and Helene, 28, the third of four daughters of Kilian von Pezold, certainly had a star-studded day. 

Guests at the Protestant wedding in the Wertheim collegiate church – included Duchess Elisabeth in Bavaria, Baroness Sophia and Baron Clemens von Elverfeldt.

The stunning bride wore a Diamond Tiara worn a few months earlier by her sister, Sophia von Pezold, for her wedding, and it is believed she will wear the royal piece to her royal ball evening, according to the Royal Watcher.

For the no-expense-spared celebration, the happy couple took their dazzled guests to the castle in Kreuzwertheim to indulge in a menu which included a roast pig, poultry and many vegetarian dishes such as falafel.
