Prince Philippos of Greece and Denmark Marries in a Minimony: See the Photo
Prince Philippos of Greece and Denmark is a married man. The son of King Constantine and Queen Anne-Marie of Greece married his fiancée, Nina Nastassja Flohr, in a minimony wedding leading up to the holidays on December 12. The bride revealed her newlywed status on Instagram days later with a COVID-appropriate caption.
"Just married (civilly)," Flohr expressed. In the dreamy wedding photo, the couple embraces in more casual-yet-chic wedding attire. Flohr opted for a soft white bow accessory to pull together her white wedding suit.
The groom's father, King Constantine, shared a statement about the nuptials through his private office. The wedding took place in St. Moritz, Switzerland; hence, the snow-powdered backdrop. Due to COVID, the couple had a true minimony with only their fathers in attendance and the help of select vendors, like their photographer Marvin Zilm.
The king, along with the father of the bride, Thomas Flohr, were the only other guests to witness the winter wedding. (Flohr is notably the founder of VistaJet, which charters private jets globally.) "The immediate family congratulated the newlyweds after the ceremony," the king added in his statement. "More details about the upcoming religious wedding will be given in due course." Like millions of couples globally, the couple has decided to postpone their larger celebration for once group gatherings are deemed safe again. The event was first coined by The Knot as the "sequel wedding," which will be a common occurrence in 2020.
The couple got engaged this summer in Ithaca, Greece. "I cannot wait to spend the rest of our lives together," Flohr wrote at the time.
Prince Philippos, also well-known as the godson of the late Princess Diana, isn't the only family member who's dealt with the impact of COVID-19on his wedding. His sister, Princess Theodora, also had to postpone her wedding to L.A. attorney Matthew Kumar this year.
