I am starting this thread because I do not see anything specific to their wedding at RD. I will be adding other video links and general information, pictures related to their romantic wedding. I am a huge fan of these two and wanted to see more than just the usual footage available through YouTube, so I went on a hunt from many sources and found a couple extra clips. Here is their exchange of vows and rings during the ceremony.

Interesting points in this video are just how much Baudouin directs his bride in everything.
At 5:25, the bridal couple appear to have a tiff right in front of the Cardinal.
Wonderful flavor at 2:26 where Fabiola stuffs her handkerchief into the ermine trim at her skirt front! That's just the type of jewel that you never get from just still pictures. You can also hear her Spanish accent during these vows.
At the very end, a priest has to tell Baudouin twice to say "Amen" after Fabiola's gift of his ring.

Enjoy...

Here is a wonderful nugget of video showing crowds queuing to see the cortege and also crowding into a hall to watch the television broadcast of the event.

This video is shows the charm of the time. Of note is a charming attempt by a young man on the stands to brace himself by hanging on to the leg of a young lady behind him and she is having none of it. That is at :45.

Enjoy...

Here is a video of the bride and groom greeting and thanking Belgians from the palace balcony.

Note: I highly recommend for this video and the next video from ina.fr that you pause the video and allow it to spool to half completion. The actual video is only half the length of the clip.

Enjoy...

Here is a video of Baudouin and Fabiola processing into the cathedral for the religious ceremony.

Note: I recommend you allow this video to spool in its entirety before watching, otherwise it's choppy.

Enjoy...

I think people that are big fans of this gown are fans of more than just the cloth; they're fans of the story, too. By all accounts, Baudouin and Fabiola had a genuine love story. They remained a devoted team through the Queen's fertility struggles, including five miscarriages, right up until the King died suddenly of heart failure in 1993. Since they were childless, the throne passed to Baudouin's brother, Albert. As for the gown, Fabiola donated it,
and it can now be admired at the Balenciaga museum in Spain.

how sad the miscarriages, and that the king died before her... Cry

And that the King was only 62 and had the throne placed on his shoulders at 21.

The past year an interesting documentary was shown on the Belgian television. http://www.canvas.be/prog...d04%3A13d7c2bafba%3A-10d2

It covers the life of Boudewijn.

Here are some video clips in six parts showing a couple minutes of the ceremonies and activities of the day.

Civil Ceremony: the declaration of marriage from Baudouin and Fabiola
There is the cutest little snippet inserted here from when they must've been watching the video of their ceremonies on an anniversary and they smile at each other and hold hands.

Exchanging of the rings - Fortunately this video is so much cleaner than the first one I posted. But, that one has the cute interactions between them

Leaving the Cathedral and back into the car as the canons are blasting away in the background

This last video is interesting because I have read several places that Fabiola handed her flowers to Baudouin in order to send the crowd her loving thanks in her classic wave. However, the video clearly shows that he took the flowers in order to hand them to an attendant. Just another example where the video clarifies.

It now sounds so quaint to hear part of the wedding ceremony conducted in Latin.

At first when I was saving a lot of pictures, I had a rudimentary auto color adjustment that I was using on the photos and it definitely made them better. However, then I fine tuned a photo and it turned out so much better I was amazed. So, then I started going through all the images I've been saving - which, let me tell you is a lot. I'll use the following examples:

Most everyone has seen this picture:



It's a relatively nice image. Then I manually adjusted all the various color and exposure features of saturation, tint, color temperature, shadow, highlights and the histogram. This is an example of the difference.



Likewise take a look at one of the throne room pictures of the civil portion of the wedding. Also of note, someone used a very soft fuzzy filter on this picture.


Here is a much closer representation of the true color of the throne room.


Maybe they were going for a highly stylized look, I don't know. But, I do know that pretty much all the pictures you find on-line need color and/or exposure adjusting - very true for the black and white ones as well.



Here's another example of how shadow and highlight made a huge difference.

What you find on the internet:


Much closer to what it probably started out looking like:


Well, I discovered that many of the wedding pictures similar to the (maybe anniversary) picture just above were really meant to illuminate the bridal couple and not a whole lot of anything else.







This proper adjustment of light and dark gives a whole newly apparent dimension to the pictures that probably was lost for a long time - or at least the pictures on the internet were used so much and copied and recopied or were scanned from pictures and not purely digital...whatever. It makes them more compelling to see maybe more of what the photographer probably was going for, at least in my humble opinion. Just thought it was interesting and made the pictures much more interesting and relevant.
