Charlotte Casiraghi has married her partner Dimitri Rassam, again–this time during a religious service in Provence, France.

Casiraghi, who is Grace Kelly’s granddaughter and the daughter of Princess Caroline, first tied the knot with Rassam in Monaco in June. The couple hosted a civil wedding ceremony at Monaco’s Prince’s Palace, where the bride wore a brocade Saint Laurent dress, later changing into Chanel for the reception at luxury hotel Villa La Vigie. Now, she has worn a third incredible gown for a religious ceremony in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence.

Casiraghi, who is eleventh in line to the Monegasque throne, wore Giambattista Valli haute couture to say “I do” to her film producer partner in a private reception held last Saturday at the Abbaye Sainte-Marie de Pierredon, outside St. Remy de Provence in the south of France.

The bride wore an off-the-shoulder silk chiffon gown, which featured delicate embroidery throughout, accessorising with a simple veil. 

The look was reminiscent of the dress her mother wore to marry banker Philippe Junot in the ‘70s. Her mother’s Marc Bohan for Christian Dior gown featured a similar flowing silhouette, high neckline, and was also made of delicate silk chiffon.

Interestingly, Casiraghi chose to host her second wedding on the same day as her mother’s first wedding, which took place on June 29, although back in 1978. This makes it seem all the more likely that the dress was a nod to her mother.

The religious ceremony was an intimate affair attended by senior members of the Monaco royal family, with the bride’s mother and siblings in attendance, as well as the current reigning monarch, the bride’s uncle, Prince Albert II.

Taking to Instagram, the designer, Giambattista Valli, wrote: “Very happy to be part of their dream!”

Traditionally speaking, Monégasque royal weddings usually do have several components to them– usually a civil ceremony, a religious ceremony, and a reception. Casiraghi has simply chosen to space her events out across the month, while past royal brides, like her mother, and grandmother, have hosted them closer together.

Casiraghi and Rassam became engaged in March of 2018, after a year of dating and they also share a son together, Balthazar, who was born in October of 2018.
