Princess Mafalda of Bulgaria and Marc Abousleiman were married on May 29.  The private civil ceremony took place at the home of Mafalda's mother, Princess Rosario in Campos on Mallorca.  The night before the wedding, the bride's father, Prince Kyril hosted a "grand party" at his home in Porreres.   Infanta Cristina of Spain and Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway were said to be among the guests.

Upon their arrival at Princess Rosario's home, wedding guests were required to put their cell phones in provided space so no one would be able to snap a photo of the bride and groom.  The wedding planner and the hired wedding staff were required to sign a confidentiality agreement, according to several Spanish news sources.

Marc Abousleiman arrived at Princess Rosario's home at 5:21 p.m.  Before he used a secret code to open the gates, he responded to questions from four photographers.  "Everything is well, thank you very much."  

Other guests who were spotted arriving at the wedding were the bride's grandfather, King Simeon of Bulgaria, and  Prince Kubrat and Princess Carla of Bulgaria

The bride made her appearance at 7:16 p.m. and was said to be "radiant and happy."

In a pre-wedding interview with Point de Vue, the Princess said that wedding plans were going "very well".  

She and Marc wanted an intimate wedding, not one with "great pomp, just music and lots of love."  She added that her family is "very happy and eager"  to welcome Marc into the family. 

I can only speculate that Mafalda's gown was designed by Valentino as her mother has been one of the designer's muses.
