Sophie-Alexandra Evekink is radiant in white on wedding day

Sophie-Alexandra Evekink wore a beautiful white floral wedding dress to walk down the aisle and marry Prince Ludwig of Bavaria.

The couple, who confirmed their engagement last August, said ‘I do’ at St Kajetan in Munich earlier today, and hundreds of people gathered to see the bride.

For the occasion, Sophie chose a classic white dress, with long sheer sleeves, a wide boat neckline and floral detailing on the princess-cut skirt.

She also chose a long veil which was embroidered with delicate lace flowers to match those on the sleeves and bodice of her dress.

Alongside the veil, Sophie chose a diamond, botanical headpiece and carried a small posy of flowers.

For jewellery, Sophie chose a matching earring and necklace set.

It comprised a small delicate chain with a small diamond cross. The earrings were diamond huggies with diamond crosses that descended from the hoops.

Sophie’s bridesmaids wore pretty white dresses, with Peter Pan collars and puffed sleeves. They also had thick blue waistbands with large bows tied at the back.

The young girls also wore pretty flower headbands and pale blue tights.

The flower boys, on the other hand, wore the same pale blue tights, and long satin blue shorts, with white shirts and carried baskets with white petals in.

Sophie-Alexandra’s new husband, Ludwig, is 40 and the eldest son of Prince Luitpold and the great-great grandson of Bavaria’s last King Ludwig III.

Sophie, on the other hand, was born in Singapore to a Dutch-Candian family.

Speaking to Germany’s Bild newspaper last summer, Prince Luitpold said he hoped the couple would “start a family soon”.

He added: “Ludwig made a good choice. My future daughter-in-law is a very intelligent and educated woman.”

Sophie has a Bachelor’s degree in Politics and East European Studies from University College London (UCL) and a Masters in Science from the University of Oxford.

She is currently working towards a PhD at University of Oxford which focuses on justice for victims of conflict-related sexual violence.
