Prince João Philippe of Orleans-Braganza (great-great grandson of Her Imperial Highness Senhora Dona Isabel, Princess Imperial of Brazil) recently married Miss Yasmin Paranaguá. For the informal civil wedding which occurred July 20, the bride wore a white fascinator with birdcage net veil.
For her religious wedding this past weekend, Princess Yasmin of Orleans-Braganza (as she is now known) wore a voluminous net veil to compliment her off-the-shoulder gown. The veil was anchored by two large silk flowers on either side of her chignon. It was one of the most creative royal bridal veil/headpiece combinations I have ever seen and I liked the overall effect. A gallery of the religious wedding can be viewed here.
The Brazilian Royal Family was deposed in 1889 and its members hold no ceremonial duties (like many of the other deposed royal houses). I believe the couple will reside in Rio where João Philippe works in business and Yasmin, who studied Industrial Design at the Catholic University of Rio, is a fashion designer.
