It's another gorgeous royal wedding!

Sweden's Prince Carl Philip, 36, married Sofia Hellqvist, 30, on Saturday in the chapel of the Royal Palace in Stockholm in front of friends and members of the royal family.

The bride, a former reality star and glamour model, looked every bit a princess and channeled Kate Middleton by opting for long-sleeves, lace and a long train. She wore a white open V-neck wedding dress with long lace sleeves, an empire waist and a long lace-trimmed train, which kept her star-shaped tattoo between her shoulder blades revealed. She also sported a sparkling diamond tiara with emerald tips and a cathedral-length veil, with her dark brown hair styled in a bottom bun.

Hellqvist, who will be known as Princess Sofia, carried a big bouquet of white and pale pink and orange roses.

The groom, a major in the Swedish navy and race car driver, wore a black military dress uniform and held his white hat in one hand as she moved to kiss his new wife.

The designer, Ida Sjöstedt, posted on her Instagram page a couple of the happy newlyweds. She is also from Sweden, a constitutional monarchy where the king or queen has no political power.

"#fairytale #dreamcometrue #thesecretisout #royalwedding2015 #kungligtbröllop2015 #historicmoment #epic," she wrote.

After the ceremony, thousands of fans greeted the couple outside. They were then driven in a horse-drawn carriage through Stockholm before returning to the palace again for the wedding reception, Reuters reported, quoting the prince as telling the crowd, "It shows Sweden is a warm country with lots of love,"  before kissing his bride, drawing applause.

Also in attendance, his pregnant sister, Princess Madeleine, 33, her husband Christopher O'Neill, 40, and their daughter, Princess Leonore, 1

The guests were decked out in their finest royal attire, with the women donning colorful ballroom gowns and looking like something out of a Disney movie.

Congrats to the prince and the new princess!
