Anunciata of Liechtenstein & Emanuele Musini

Civil wedding in Tenuta di Fassia, Umbria, Italy
26 June 2021

The Bride: Princess Maria Anunciata von und zu Liechtenstein (36) is the eldest daughter of Prince Nikolaus of Liechtenstein & Princess Margaretha of Luxembourg. She was born in Brussels and has a sister, Astrid (engaged to be married) and a brother, Josef (equally engaged to be married). Anunciata is one of the best looking, wealthiest royals of her generation yet she's always kept a low profile.

Anunciata followed the path that any self respecting high class parent etches out for their children: an international upbringing (Austria-Liechtenstein-Luxembourg-Brussels-Paris-London), a British boarding school and a professional & social life between the various homes and countries.

Professionally she's been commuting between Paris and New York, as an arts consultant and curator. Whereas she's worked for important museums in the past she's now established herself as a consultant. Her family owns an incredible art collection.

The Groom: British born Carlo Emanuele Musini (42) is the founder and CEO of Pillo Health. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Media studies and Business studies from the University of East Anglia.


The venue: Belongs to the groom's family who have Italian roots.

Among the guests were Princess Alix de Ligne, Mathilde Borromeo and Countess Margherita Arco-Zinneberg.

Religious wedding in Vienna, Austria
4 September 2021

The dress: A creation of Valentino. Take away those eighties sleeves and I'll love it. Anyway, Anunciata looks regal and oh so happy, doesn't she? 



The veil: Truly gorgeous and romantic. Look at those seemingly whimsically placed little flowers! 

The tiaras: The Habsburg diamond fringe tiara for the religious wedding. It belongs to the Liechtenstein royal family.



And the vine tiara for the dinner and ball. This one comes from her mother's side of the family, it belongs to the Luxembourg Grand Ducal family.


The earrings: Diamonds and pearls, the same ones her mother wore on her wedding day.

The church: The glorious Schottenkirche in Vienna.













Witnesses were Anunciata's cousins on her mother's side of the family: Princess Alexandra of Luxembourg, Archduchess Marie Christine of Habsbourg Lorraine and Princess Marie Gabrielle de Nassau.
