Counting down the days until Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tie the knot? Fortunately, there was another beautiful royal wedding over the weekend to tide you over.

On Friday, Prince Christian of Hanover, second in line to the erstwhile Hanoverian throne, married lawyer and former model Alessandra de Osma in a religious ceremony in the bride's home country of Peru. The pair, who reportedly met when de Osma served as Christian's tour guide in her native country in 2005, had previously wed in a civil ceremony in London back in November, but this was a much more extravagant affair.

De Osma walked down the aisle of the Basilica San Pedro in a gorgeous high-necked long-sleeved gown by Spanish fashion designer Jorge Vázquez, but all eyes were on her something borrowed: the stunning Hanoverian Floral Tiara, which she paired with an updo and small, sunburst-shaped stud earrings.

The diamond diadem has in recent years become a favorite of brides marrying into the House of Hanover. Just last year when Ekaterina Malysheva wed Christian's brother, Ernst August, Prince of Hanover, she wore the tiara. Before that, it had been previously seen on the groom's stepmother, Princess Caroline of Monaco, in 2004 at a formal event in Copenhagen.

According to the Peruvian Times, the wedding service, which was attended by high profile guests such as Kate Moss and Princesses of York Beatrice and Eugenie, was "followed by lunch at the elite Club Nacional on the Plaza San Martín, and cocktails in the evening at the Berckemeyer house in Miraflores, one of the few remaining grand houses on Av. Arequipa, built by the bride’s great-grandparents in the early 1930s when the area was just being developed."
