Real Weddings: Camilla Elizabeth Antonia Thorp & George John Godolphin Spencer-Churchill

On September 8, 2018, childhood sweethearts George Spencer-Churchill, Marquess of Blanford and soon to be the 13th Duke of Marlborough, and Camilla Thorp (now titled Marchioness of Blandford), a descendant of the Tempest baronets of Tong, Yorkshire, were married at St. Mary Magdalene Church in Woodstock, Oxfordshire, in South East England. Well-wishers turned out to see Camilla arrive in a Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda gown, paired with a tiara that once belonged to Conseula Vanderbilt (who married the 9th Duke of Marlborough in 1895). Following the ceremony, 300 guests, including Lord and Lady Bamford; Lord Edward Spencer and his wife, Scarlett Strutt; George’s sister, Lady Alexandra Elizabeth Spencer-Churchill; and George Mountbatten, the fourth Marquess of Milford Haven, and his wife, Clare Mountbatten, continued the celebrations at the family seat of Blenheim Palace. They were treated to a relaxed reception beneath a marquee in the palace grounds, before everyone donned black tie for drinks and dinner in the Grand Hall, followed by dancing and fireworks.
