The best beauty looks from the Swedish royal wedding

Princess Madeleine of Sweden was the picture of grace and poise on the day she married her American love Chris O'Neill. She was breathtaking in a custom-made Valentino dress, while her impeccable hair and make-up completed the elegant effect.

Madeleine wore her hair swept back from her face in a simple chignon. The low bun was held in place by her royal tiara, which was decorated with a delicate garland of fresh orange blossoms.

Her make-up was flawless. A natural complexion appeared to have been achieved through pared-down foundation and bronzer, while several layers of mascara framed her eyes.

A dark pink lipstick made for a striking contrast with her perfect white teeth.

Madeleine wasn't the only royal to show off a gorgeous beauty look. Her sister Princess Victoria opted for a large bun featuring intricate braids. The updo ensured all eyes were on her beautiful Elie Saab gown.

Norweigan princess Mette-Marit, meanwhile, wore a stunning, twisted and tucked style that oozed vintage romance.

Princess Stephanie of Luxembourg kept her make-up natural, instead putting the focus on her intricate updo that was held in place by an amber-jewelled tiara.

Both Princess Mary of Denmark and Princess Tatiana of Greece chose pale pink lipstick for the occasion, perhaps in keeping with the 'summer meadow' colour theme of the nuptials.

The ladies also wore similar, swept-back updos, with their beautiful tiaras taking centre stage.

Madeleine changed out of her Valentino wedding dress to continue the celebrations at Drottningholm Palace, hours after saying her vows.

She decided to wear a white ball gown that was embellished with crystals on both the fitted bodice and the full skirt. It also featured a long white ribbon tied in a bow that sat around her waist.

Touchingly, Madeleine's mother, Queen Silvia was the first to wear the dress when she attended the Nobel Price Ceremony back in December 2001.

Madeleine quite literally let her hair down at the wedding reception. As well as changing her gown, she decided to let her long brunette locks fall around her shoulders as she celebrated at the royal family's private residence with her loved ones.

Guests, who had arrived at the Palace by boat, watched as Madeleine and Chris shared the first dance as husband and wife to Mr Bojangles. After dinner, the dancing continued long into the night with music including Sweet Child O'Mine by Guns and Roses and Haddaway's What Is Love.

A lavish banquet was served at 8pm, beginning with a section of Swedish delicacies including a miniature Västerbotten cheese pie, Kalix vendace roe in a cone with lemon and piquant crème fraîche, Skagen emulsion with crisp rye bread, mustard herring in a carrot coating, pickled herring terrine, and egg from Gotland with Drott caviar foam.
