Description

'Christopher and I were married on a freezing February day in St Margaret's Westminster, where my parents had been married.... My dress was made by Molyneux and my tulle veil was held in place by a coronet of orange blossom... A large crowd gatherred despite the artic conditions.... The reception at the Dorchester was largely candlelit, which was very pretty - and also made the room warmer!', Mary Soames, A Daughter's Tale, London, Doubleday, 2011, p.481.
