The Wedding Banquet

The wedding banquet was held in the Vita Havet Assembly Rooms at the Royal Palace of Stockholm. This is the palace's old ballroom, with ceiling paintings dating from the 18th century.

The Vita Havet Assembly Rooms was originally two separate rooms: the queen's dining room and her guards' hall. The rooms were remodelled in 1845. The central wall was demolished, and the new room was decorated as a banqueting hall and ballroom for King Oskar I and Queen Josefina. The oak parquet flooring with inlaid woods – including birch, mahogany and lemonwood – was laid in 1845. Photo: Alexis Daflos/Kungahuset.se
