What's Up Wednesday (Marlboro D'Bacquemme Wedding)

Today we report on yet another D'Bacquemme wedding following close on the heels of the Earl Cartwright's happy day less than a month ago. On the 1st of September 2013, the sister of the Marquis D'Bacquemme, Madame Francine, was wed to His Grace the Duke of Marlboro. The wedding has been on the cards for a while as the couple has been officially "dating" for over a year.

After the official year long courtship, having appeared at many public functions together, the big day finally came as autumn announced its arrival in Europa. The event was held at the D'Bacquemme family residence, Chateaux Dumont in Franconia. As with the previous D'Bacquemme wedding held in August, the Marquis again refused to be photographed for publicity photos.

After the ceremony, which is rarely photographed in the case of Royal and Noble weddings, the guests gathered for their photos before the private celebrations began. Her we see the new Duchess and her husband, Duke Winston, the 12th Duke of Marlboro.

Wearing the Marlboro Family Tiara has become a nuptial tradition for Marlboro brides and here we see Her Grace photographed in it coupled with her plain yet impressively voluminous dress.

The full gathering of family can be seen here with the notable absence of The Marquis D'Bacquemme and the Earl Cartwright (husband of the former Mairi D'Bacquemme, niece of the bride). The Earl Cartwright couldn't attend due to  business obligations.
