Princess Alexandra of Luxembourg weds Nicolas Bagory in a civil ceremony at Luxembourg City Hall ahead of the couple hosting a lavish reception on April 29.
The princess, 31, looked elegant as she opted for a sleek cream wedding suit instead of a dress while carrying a bouquet.
Her dark brown locks were worn behind her back in a low profile style and opted for simple pearl earrings.
Meanwhile, the groom, 33, opted for a crisp navy blue suit with a light blue tie.
After the ceremony, the beaming couple stood on the steps outside City Hall and waved to the adoring fans who had gathered to see them.

Other members of the royal family came dressed in all their finery to attend Princess Alexandra’s wedding, and they all had smiles on their faces.
Proud parents Grand Duchess Maria Teresa of Luxembourg and Grand Duke Henri of Luxembourg waved as they arrived at the wedding venue, with Maria Teresa in a bright pink ensemble with flowing trousers.
Meanwhile, Princess Alexandra’s three brothers, Prince Louis of Luxembourg, Prince Felix of Luxembourg and Prince Sebastien of Luxembourg, were all dressed up as they came out to watch their sister get married.
The princess and Nicolas announced their engagement last November after he got down on one knee.
The official announcement read: “Their Royal Highnesses The Grand Duke and Grand Duchess have the great pleasure of announcing the engagement of their daughter, Her Royal Highness Princess Alexandra, to Monsieur Nicolas Bagory.”
Princess Alexandra is the daughter of Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa of Luxembourg.
Princess Alexandra – who is sixth in line to the throne – is not only an active working royal, but also a professional linguist.
Meanwhile, Nicolas, 33, who grew up in Brittany, France, works on social and cultural projects in Paris, where he lives.
After today’s civil ceremony, the couple will host a reception on April 29 at the Saint Trophyme church in Bormes-les-Mimosas.

Until her 20th birthday, Princess Alexandra was excluded from the line of succession until 2011, when Grand Duke Henri adopted absolute primogeniture, meaning that all his descendants could be eligible for the throne, regardless of gender.
She was nine when her father ascended the throne in 2000 after her grandfather abdicated in his favor.
According to her online biography, Alexandra is fluent in four languages, including Luxembourgish, English, French, and Spanish. She can also hold her own in German and Italian.
During her studies – which she followed in the US, France and Ireland – the Luxembourg royal family showed a great interest in international relations and conflict.
She even did an internship at the United Nations in New York when Luxembourg was one of the non-permanent members. She dedicates her time to volunteering with refugee associations and enjoys sports, being an avid skier, dancer and tennis player.
