Last week’s issue of Svensk Damtidning (no 35 – 2009) reports on the wedding of Ebba Løvenskiold and Sam Giertz in Maglehem Church in Scania, Sweden’s southernmost province. The bride belongs to one of the most prominent families of the former aristocracy of Norway, which was abolished in 1821.
Her uncle, Herman Løvenskiold, resides at Fossum Manor in Skien, Norway, while her father, Jacob Løvenskiold, lives at Borrestad Manor in Scania, which was built by his maternal grandfather, Count Pontus De la Gardie.
The bride and groom live in New York. She is a freelance writer while he is managing director of Nordaq Fresh.
