Lady Kitty Spencer celebrates first marriage anniversary with romantic film about her wedding day
Princess Diana's niece, Lady Kitty, posted a new short movie to share moments from her wedding ceremony held one year ago on July 24, 2021
To celebrate her opulent wedding to retail magnate Michael Lewis and their first wedding anniversary, Lady Kitty Spencer shared a new short movie about her wedding day. Princess Diana's niece, 31, and the South African-born multimillionaire, 63, were married on July 24, 2021, in the gorgeous country house Villa Aldobrandini in Frascati. The day was captured in photographs that were shared at the time, featuring the bride's collection of custom Dolce & Gabbana gowns, but Lady Kitty's new movie offers a more detailed glimpse into their wedding.
The minutes-long video documents the stunning fireworks show, beautiful reception, and courtyard ceremony. Most intriguingly, it also features Lady Kitty and her publicity-averse husband in real-life situations. The pair smiles as they proceed down the aisle together and take a private moment alone before greeting their guests. The film concludes with a view of Lewis rising and holding his wife's head tenderly on his shoulder. The late Princess Diana's niece Lady Kitty Spencer wore several jaw-dropping gowns during her wedding celebrations in Rome in July 2021. But despite being a member of the aristocratic Spencer family, Kitty opted not to wear the famous Spencer Tiara that Lady Diana Spencer famously wore to her own 1981 royal wedding.
The 'Spencer Tiara' has been worn by several Spencer brides over the years. The tiara became world-famous as the crowning glory of Princess Diana's wedding outfit, and later as her go-to tiara for royal engagements. Since Diana died in 1997, the Spencer Tiara has been worn by other members of the Spencer family on their wedding days, including Diana's niece Celia McCorquodale.
But Lady Kitty decided to forego the tiara for her ceremony. Her wedding video that captures the four-day celebrations also features close family like her brother Louis, Viscount Althorp, mother-of-the-bride Victoria Aitken, the first wife of Charles, Earl Spencer, and also close friends, including the music singer Pixie Lott and the Marchioness of Bath. The video was filmed by leading Italian wedding videographer Marco Caputo and shared on Lady Kitty's Instagram account.
The audio on the clip says, “I've seen their love take hold then grow and consolidate with all the happiness, excitement and occasional struggle that comes with it. I've seen the tenderness and determination in both of them and for the caring bystander I was, it filled me with joy to see the friend who already had such an important place in my heart, and the one who so easily conquered one, make each other happier people.” The couple went public with their relationship in 2019, with the South African businessman proposing over Christmas that year. Their wedding was initially delayed due to Covid-19 before it took place last summer.
