Lady Kitty, then 30, wed the multi-millionaire Michael Lewis at the Villa Aldobrandini in Frascati, a stunning country mansion with views out towards Rome, on July 24, 2021.

Having delayed their wedding for two years due to the pandemic, the celebrations stretched across three days and were attended by close friends including the pop star Pixie Lott and the Marchioness of Bath.

The bride, a Global Brand Ambassador for Dolce & Gabbana, wore five gowns by the designer over the weekend.

For her main wedding dress, Kitty opted for a high-neck, Victorian-inspired white lace gown featuring feminine puff sleeves and a cinched waist. The design drew inspiration from her mother Victoria Lockwood’s own wedding dress with its button-down front.

Designer and co-founder of the fashion house, Domenico Dolce later said of Kitty’s wedding wardrobe: ‘She told us she had thought of us immediately, and we were very happy with that!’

‘They’ve been beautiful and emotional moments,’ said Dolce. ‘One of the inspirations is definitely her love for Italy. Kitty is in love with our beautiful country and its rich history, art and culture.’

Stefano Gabbana said: ‘But she is also a girl who is very attached to her origins, to England; to her heritage of the great Victorian era. And like all the English people, she has a great passion for all kinds of flowers.’

The famous Spencer Tiara worn by Princess Diana was missing from the ceremony. Instead, Kitty opted for an elegant veil, intricate headpieces and flower crowns that each complemented the respective gowns.

The couple exchanged vows in between floral arches. Music was provided by a pianist and a singer positioned to the right of the couple.

Mr Lewis wore a kippah, and it is thought Lady Kitty received instruction in the Jewish faith ahead of the ceremony.

The smiling newlyweds walked back down the aisle hand-in-hand as guests tossed pastel-coloured confetti in the air.

The celebrations continued into the evening with dancing and a live band and the night ended with a spectacular fireworks display.

The model caught the eye of the business tycoon when they met through mutual friends in 2018 and got married in the sumptuous Italian wedding ceremony three years later.

But before she met her prince charming, Lady Kitty, made a name for herself in the fashion world, as a spokesmodel for Dolce & Gabbana, who supplied five dresses for her wedding and walked in several Fashion Weeks across the globe.

Meanwhile, Michael knows a thing or two about fashion as well, being the chairman of the Foschini Group, which owns British high street chains Whistles and Phase Eight.

The tycoon is believed to be worth £80million, with a £19million property in London and another home in his native South Africa, where his wife grew up after her Charles, the 9th Earl Spencer and his first wife, Victoria Lockwood, divorced.
