In a love match to rival the fairytale setting of a grand Italian villa, Lady Kitty Spencer yesterday married fashion tycoon Michael Lewis in a lavish ceremony in front of their high-society friends and family.
As the searing summer heat began to ease at 6pm, Princess Diana’s niece said ‘I do’ in front of a hushed congregation in the Villa Aldobrandini in Frascati, a stunning country mansion with views towards Rome.
The wedding, attended by a host of celebrities and aristocrats, was the climax of a party weekend which began in the Italian capital on Friday night.
The couple were joined by Lady Kitty’s sisters, twins Eliza and Amelia; Viscountess Emma Weymouth and her husband Ceawlin Thynn, the Marquess of Bath; pop star Pixie Lott and her model boyfriend Oliver Cheshire; Idris Elba’s wife Sabrina; and Made In Chelsea star Mark Vandelli.
