Guests rushed to help the bride who “started choking at the table.”

An ambulance was called to assist the struggling bride.

A CPR team arrived in the party room, but “couldn’t save the bride,” reports said.

Doctors said she had an “anaphylactic shock” believed to be caused by a nut allergy.

Alexandra had suffered from a nut allergy since childhood, and family members had warned the chefs at the location in advance, her family said.

According to reports, the sweet dishes the bride ate contained nuts.

Alexandra had studied banking and finance at the elite Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration in Moscow.

The police are investigating the incident.

In all allergies, the immune system is activated by allergens to produce antibodies to defend the body.

These antibodies cause inflammatory responses and release the chemical histamine, which in turn causes hives, hay fever and other allergic symptoms.

Anaphylaxis is a serious allergic reaction that can be life-threatening.

The Tsaritsyno Palace and surrounding grounds were first founded in 1776 by Catherine the Great of Russia to replace a previously existing mansion.

The Russian Empress rejected the symmetry of the original plans of architect Vasily Bazhenov and ordered the building to be demolished and to start all over again.

The palace was finally completed in 1796, but Catherine never lived in the house, and it was empty and unfurnished before restoration plans were developed in the 19th century.

The restoration of the palace was completed in 2007 when it reopened as an attraction for tourists.
