Yesterday's Swedish royal wedding was the best wedding ever. Here's why...

They had Rihanna AND music from Sister Act.

YESTERDAY PRINCE CARL Philip of Sweden married the love of his life; former model and reality star Sofia Hellqvist.

Now, we know the Swedes are pretty good at being rides and eating food out of tubes. It turns out they’re also pretty good at putting on a royal wedding.

Here’s the evidence:

Look at the groom

And look at the bride

And look at them together

What a wonderful sight.

Doesn’t the prince look a bit like Henry Cavill, aka Superman?

There were some decent cute babies at the wedding

Like this one who JUST WANTS TO RUN AROUND FOR A WHILE MAMMY!…

And the one who needed distracting…

And the flower girls. THE FLOWER GIRLS!

And just like any mass, there was confusion about when to stand up

And even though he’s a beautiful royal Prince Carl Philip still made a hames of putting a ring on it

Then they left the church to this

It’s a pretty fast number to walk back down the aisle to, but somehow they managed it.

The baby really enjoyed it too.

Now, we wonder what time the triangle sandwiches and cocktail sausages came out at.

It’s a boy! Benedict Cumberbatch and wife Sophie have welcomed a snapper

Can you make it through all this nineties nostalgia without crying?
