But while many of the royals looked stunning in their jewel-coloured gowns, all eyes were on Princess Sofia.
The 30-year-old, who was given the official title of Princess Sofia of Sweden, Duchess of Värmland, looked breathtaking in an elegant bridal gown, completed with a delicate diamond and emerald crown.
Created by Swedish designer Ida Sjöstedt, her wedding gown featured intricate couture lace and was made in three shades of white. Her beautiful train, which was hand-cut and hand stitched, was carried behind her as she and her husband stepped out of the chapel.
The elegant bridal look was completed with an embroidered veil and delicate tiara adorned with diamonds and emeralds.
The pair reportedly first met at a Stockholm nightclub in 2010, with news of their relationship being revealed soon after.
The prince’s new girlfriend was known for appearing in the popular Swedish reality show Paradise Hotel in 2005, which saw young, scantily-clad singles compete to stay the longest in a luxury hotel. During her stint on the show, she kissed famous American porn star Jenna Jameson.
