Royal Wedding: Princess Madeleine says 'I do' at lavish bash

Madeleine wore a stunning white lace dress designed by Valentino Garavani

Swedish Princess Madeleine fell in love in the Big Apple. Now she has said "yes" to New York banker Christopher O'Neill in a lavish wedding ceremony in Stockholm.

Madeleine was wearing a stunning white lace dress designed by Valentino Garavani when she tied the knot to British-American O'Neill on Saturday in front of around 470 European royals and top New York socialites.

O'Neill fought back tears as Madeleine walked down the aisle with her father, King Carl XVI Gustaf, to a traditional Swedish wedding march.

The couple met through mutual friends in New York, where they both live, and were first spotted together at the Central Park Boathouse in January 2011.

The Swedish royal family has only ceremonial duties.
