Princess Diana's niece and daughter of Charles Spencer, Lady Kitty Spencer, 30, married billionaire fashion businessman Michael Lewis, 62, this weekend in Rome, wearing a gorgeous Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda gown.

The Victorian-inspired gown was custom-made and featured a high neck, long sleeves, peaked shoulders and a corseted bodice, culminating in a full lace skirt with a train and long veil.

The dress is also very similar to the one her mother Victoria Lockwood wore when she married Kitty's father in 1989.

Kitty is an ambassador for the brand and the Italian designer duo created five more bridal looks for the weekend. 

The couple, who first met in 2018 and became engaged in 2019, were married at the beautiful Villa Aldobrandini in Rome with guests including Pixie Lott, Elon Musk's mother Maye and Idris Elba to name a few.

Kitty's brother Louis Spencer, Viscount Althorp, and half-brother Samuel Aitken walked her down the aisle. It's unknown why the Earl didn't walk his daughter down the aisle, however, he recently revealed in an interview with MSN last month he was suffering from a painful shoulder injury that was affecting his freedom of movement. 

Neither Prince William nor Prince Harry were in attendance, with the pandemic likely to be the cause.

The wedding date is believed to have been chosen as it's a significant religious date for Michael, who is Jewish. Tu B'Av is known as a romantic Jewish holiday and said to be a great day for weddings. 

According to The Sunday Times, Kitty converted to Judaism before the wedding in 2020.

Interestingly, Kitty has never publicly spoken about her husband, but she previously told Town & Country, "It's not that I don't place an importance on love. It's because, for me, love is the most important thing in the world, and I will protect it with all my heart by not making it a topic of discussion. 

"You open yourself up to other people having opinions, and it just isn't relevant to anybody's life but mine and my family's."

She added, "I just look forward to a really happy home life: a happy marriage and happy children. And I feel very at peace that things play out the way they should."

Michael has three adult children and was previously married to a woman named Leola.
