The Regency Ball

Dull November is almost behind us, but I believe we need something cheerful before Christmas. There was a photographer at the ball back in August, and his collection of photographs were recently published online. Here they are, accompanied by some lovely music. There is a short text in the beginning and it says this ball celebrates  two hundred years of uninterrupted peace in Sweden. Enjoy!

(The dancing is seen towards the later third of the film, so be patient. There was some socializing in the courtyard before the dancing started. The period, buffet style dinner was served when we were halfway through the dance programme.)

Everybody did their best to look really splendid. Do you spot your favourite ensemble?
