On Sunday, 12 September, at 3:00pm, Prince Rostislav Rostislavovich and Princess Fonteini Romanovsky celebrated their religious wedding at the Cathédrale Saint-Alexandre Nevsky on 12 rue Daru in Paris in the 8th arrondissement of Paris. The church was established and consecrated in 1861; this made it the first Russian Orthodox place of worship in France. The princess wore a tiara that Russian jeweller Axenoff designed specifically for the occasion: the Russian Paris tiara is made of a silver frame with blue and white topazes. Princess Fonteini Romanovky's gown was designed by her cousin Princess Chloë Obolensky (b.1942; née Georgakis; ex-wife of the late Prince Leonid Obolensky).
