The society wedding of the year! Kitty Spencer’s glamorous guest list revealed

It’s been billed the society wedding of the year, and Lady Kitty Spencer’s glittering guest list certainly justifies such a claim.

Princess Diana’s niece, 30, married retail millionaire Michael Lewis, 62, at a 17th century Italian castle on Saturday, in a stunning lace gown by Dolce & Gabbana, for whom she is a brand ambassador.

Lady Kitty, daughter of Earl Spencer and his first wife Victoria Lockwood, dazzled in a series of gowns all made for her by fashion house, while the Italian duo also dressed many of her glamorous attendees.

Kitty was escorted at the ceremony, held in the gardens of the Villa Aldobrandini – a stunning mansion in Frascati, near Rome – by her brother Louis Spencer, Viscount Althorp, and half brother Samuel Aitken, whose father is businessman Jonathan Aitken. However there was also no sign at the festivities, which spanned several days, of her father, nor Kitty’s cousins Princes William or Harry, whose weddings in 2011 and 2018 she attended.

Also understood to have been present were the groom’s three grown-up children from his marriage to ex-wife Leola. 

After the ceremony, the couple treated guests to a sumptuous dinner and dancing, before they took to the balcony to watch an incredible fireworks display. Here FEMAIL reveals the lucky list of attendees – from members of the British aristocracy to DJs, reality stars and catwalk royalty.

Eliza and Amelia Spencer – the bride’s sisters 

Twins Lady Eliza and Lady Amelia Spencer were there to watch their big sister down the aisle, accompanied by their partners. 

Eliza recently marked her four-year anniversary with boyfriend Channing Millerd, with whom she often shares romantic selfies from exotic holidays.

Amelia got engaged to long-term love Greg Mallett last year, with Greg asking for their father Earl Spencer’s blessing before proposing in South Africa. 

Neither twin has shared any photos from the wedding as yet on their Instagram accounts, but they were spotted on the balcony with the bride and groom, and tagged in shots exploring Rome by half-brother Samuel Aitken.

The bride’s brothers

Lady Kitty was walked down the aisle by her brother Louis Spencer, Viscount Althorp, and half-brother Samuel Aitken – whose father is businessman Jonathan Aitken.

Samuel shared a series of snaps from the family’s time together in Rome ahead of the nuptials – though Louis appears to prefer to keep his private life (and Instagram account) private. 

Photographs of the bride shared online show the 30-year-old wearing a Victorian-inspired lace gown for the occasion, which features trendy puff sleeves and a cinched waist (pictured with her brothers Louis Spencer, Viscount Althorp and Samuel Aitken who walked her down the aisle)

Lady Lara Spencer and Jonah Freud

Lady Lara, 15, is Lady Kitty’s half-sister – the daughter of Earl Spencer’s second wife Caroline Hutton (née Freud), whom he married following the breakdown of his marriage to Victoria Aitken.

She was a flower girl at her cousin Emily McCorquodale’s wedding, but showed off a considerably more mature look in Italy this weekend.

Lady Lara – whose brother is the Honorable Edmund Spencer – was pictured with Jonah Freud, Caroline’s older son with ex-husband Matthew Freud.

She was also seen chatting to Laura Pettman, Princess Diana’s niece and daughter of Baroness Jane Fellowes.

Jade Holland Cooper 

Another pal from the fashion show circuit who made it onto Lady Kitty’s guest list was British designer Jade, who wore a vibrant green Versace gown, channelling J-Lo vibes.

Maye Musk and Julia Perry

Maye, a Canadian-South African model, was also pictured at the lavish ceremony wearing a layered polka dot dress and posing on the balcony alongside Fashion PR and stylist Julia Perry.

The mother of Elon Musk, Kimbal Musk and Tosca Musk, Maye has been a model for 50 years, appearing on the covers of magazines, including a Time magazine health edition, Women’s Day, and Vogue. 

It’s likely she became friends with Kitty as they mix in the same modelling circles; both women were part of the Dolce & Gabbana star-studded lineup of models for its Spring 2019 show.
