Royal Wedding at Versailles: interpretation

Inspired by all the talk of Royal Weddings, I have compiled some lush images straight from Sofia Coppola's 2006 interpretation of Marie Antoinette's royal wedding.  The wedding was only a brief chapter in the movie, but the filming, costumes, decor and choreography were very impressive.  The ceremony was shot in quite a bit more detail than I had expected, and even the reception is included (with full dances and toasts!).  Reception photos after the jump!

Ok everyone, enjoy all the royal wedding fuss! Lets have a relaxing weekend. Pull out the pearls and hey, why not open a bottle of champagne? Cheers!









Oh wait that is not all.... more photos! (as I looked through these it is like an 18th century wedding album lol)










Are you still with me? On to the reception! Heather's favorite parts of weddings!

  2. I just noticed that Louis' ring looks very similar to Kate's engagement ring!

  3. Had this movie's music choices been better, I would see it more often simply for the costumes and sets. I cannot imagine how expensive these scenes were to film.
