On Saturday 12.05.2012 the Wieskirche near Steingaden a famous Roccco piligrimate Church and Tourist Atttraction saw a Royal Wedding. At this day Princess Felipa of Bavaria, the younger daughter of Prince Leopold (Poldi) of bavaria and his wife Ursula (Uschi) née Möhlenkamp married there the Filmproducer Christian Dienst. Unfortunately the weather on this day turned out to be quiet rainy and cold. I arrived at the Church short before 10 a clock when it was still open for Tourists and had a chance to go in and look around before it was closed. Little later the first guests started to arrive most of them walked the way from the Parkplace below the Church. Only the most important guest where droven in Cars. A little bit late the bride and her father finally arrived around 10 mins. after noon. Luckily at that time the rain was very light so that no umbreally was needed. The bride wore a gown by munich Designer Natascha Müllerschön and a diamond tiara usually worn by her mother. After greeting the priest the bride accompanied by her father walked down the Aisle to the Sound of "The Prince of Denmark's March". The Mass was officiated by Abbot Johannes Eckert of Kloster Andechs. Among the Music during the Service was the  Spatzenmesse, Laudate dominum and Ave Verum (Mozart). At the end Wassermusik (water music) by Händel. The Service last for around 1,5 hours.
