While you await Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s big day (which is exactly two months from today), feast your royal appetite on the royal wedding that took place in Peru this weekend. Prince Christian of Hanover (son of Ernst August, Prince of Hanover, and second in line to the throne), and Alessandra de Osma (lawyer and former model), tied the knot in Lima on Friday, March 16.

Christian, 32, and de Osma, 25, first met in 2005, when she served as his tour guide during one of his visits to Peru, her native country. But they didn’t start dating until years later. Their first appearance as a couple was in 2011, Hola reports. They were engaged in April 2017, according to PopSugar. This marked the second wedding for the couple; they first said “I do” in a civil ceremony in London in November.

This weekend’s ceremony took place at San Pedro church, a 17th century baroque structure in downtown Lima, the Peruvian Times reports. The streets were closed off and baskets of flowers hung from the lampposts. Well wishers gathered at the gates to watch the procession.

De Osma wore a white lace gown by Jorge Vázquez with a high neckline, and three-quarter-length sleeves. She walked down the aisle with her father, Felipe de Osma, who is an executive at Hermes, a Peruvian cash management firm, according to Daily Mail. Prince Christian’s half-sister Princess Alexandra of Hanover, who wore a pink and black minidress, helped carry the bride’s massive train.
