Distinguished officials and guests are arriving in the garden of the Schwarzau castle, on Sunday, October 22, 1911, for the wedding breakfast, following the marriage, the day before, of Archduke Charles of Austria-Este and Princess Zita of Bourbon-Parma. An outdoor altar has been set up and Roman Catholic clergy are engaged in ceremonial preparations. Princess Zita kneels at a singular pew and is joined by Charles, who stands beside her. (A small dog is seen briefly in the foreground.) From a different camera angle, the couple are seen kneeling side-by-side, as Priests proceed with their ministrations. Camera pans left to 81-year-old Emperor Franz Joseph standing, in the center of the yard, surrounded by the rest of the participants, including a group of girls in white dresses. A floral wreath with an organza bow and tails is suspended by one of the castle windows. Some staff watch the ceremony from a window.
