  1. Oh, my goodness! They were so young when they married- and they look it too! Her gown is typical 80s fashion with the large puffy sleeves, but everything else is very simple and classic, so it hasn’t aged too badly. I am surprised to see that Princess Alexandra didn’t lend her the Ogilvy tiara to wear, but then it might have been the bride’s choice. By all accounts, they have been very happy and I wish for them many more years of the same. Congratulations!
