Borromeo-Fürstenberg nuptials

Prince Antonius zu Fürstenberg and Countess Matilde Borromeo were married on Saturday at Stresa on Lake Maggiore in Italy.  The ceremony took place on a private island, owned by Matilde's family.  

Prince Antonius is the younger son of the Prince and Princess of Fürstenberg.  The guests included members of Italian nobility and Pierre Casiraghi, Princess Caroline of Monaco's younger son, who is dating the bride's younger half-sister, Beatrice, who is not a countess as she is illegitimate.

Princess Antonius' two sisters, Lavina and Isabella, were present as well, with their husbands and children.  Lavinia is married to John Elkann, heir to the Agnelli fortune.  Isabella's husband is Count Ugo Maria Brachetti, whose brother, Ferdinando, is married to Princess Mafalda of Hesse. 

Beatrice Borromeo, an Italian television personality, is the daughter of Cout Carlo Ferdinando Borromeo and his mistress, Paola Marzotto.   Members of the Marzotto family were also present for the wedding.

The Princess of Fürstenberg was born Princess Maximiliane of Windisch-Graetz.  Her younger brother, Mariano Hugo, is the present Prince of Windisch-Graetz.  He is married to Archduchess Sophie of Austria.  They also attended the wedding.

Princess Antonius is expecting the couple's first child.

Prince Antonio doesn't have sisters, only an elder brother. Matilda has sisters rather.
