Prince Philippos, youngest son of King Constantine and Queen Anne-Marie of Greece, was married to Nina Flohr in a religious ceremony at the Metropolitan Cathedral of Athens this evening.
The bride wore a white silk moire taffeta gown, modified from Chanel’s 2021 Autumn Winter Couture Collection. The gown features a v-neckline wrapped in a pleated portrait collar with front bow, an empire waist and full pleated skirt that flows to a sweep train. Silver beaded applique lace around the neckline is repeated on a detachable capelike train, anchored beneath the portrait collar at the back.
Princess Nina, as she is now known, topped her gown with a lengthy silk tulle veil and the Antique Corsage pearl and diamond floral tiara, a diadem of Scandinavian royal origin that Queen Anne-Marie inherited weeks before her marriage to King Constantine. It’s a beautiful shape that lends itself well to a bridal tiara (Princess Marie-Chantal and Princess Tatiana wore it for their weddings) although I think it’s better suited to a less severe hairstyle.
Nina was attended by Philippos’ nieces Anna Maria and Amelia Morales who wore silk dresses by Amelia Wickstead with high collars, long sleeves and full skirts in a yellow floral pattern. Deep periwinkle flowers were tucked around their chignons.
Young bridesmaids wore fresh floral wreaths in yellow and periwinkle wildflowers to coordinate with the wedding’s blue and yellow theme.
A fun recap- Princess Nina has celebrated her marriage in five ensembles (four from Chanel):
December 12, 2020: A Chanel boucle suit, boots and hairbow for the Moritz, Switzerlan civil ceremony
October 22, 2021: A Chanel boucle coat dress to meet with the Archbishop of Athens
October 22, 2021: White Chanel (from Autumn Winter 2021 Couture collection) gown for the pre-wedding reception in Athens
The 5:00PM time ceremony today mandated a dress code of suits and gowns – no hats. You can see a gallery of fashion worn by Greek, Danish and Spanish royal familiey members and royal guests from Great Britain and Hanover here.
