Celebrity wedding fever: William and Harry miss Earl Spencer's intimate ceremony

20 JUNE 2011 The irresistible draw of charmers with a colourful past

Earl Spencer, the brother of the late Diana, Princess of Wales, tied the knot for the third time on Saturday. 

He married Canadian philanthropist Karen Gordon in a private civil ceremony followed by a blessing, attended by only close friends and family within the grounds of Althorp, where Diana is buried.

Unfortunately, his nephews Prince William and Prince Harry were unable to attend.

William was required to work at RAF Valley in Angelsey and a royal aide said Harry also missed the service due to "a long-standing private engagement".

The bride, 38, was radiant in a white fitted lace dress which, with a sweetheart neckline and lace sleeves, was reminiscent of the Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding gown.

And 47-year-old Charles was dapper in a navy pinstripe suit.

Only one official shot was released from the private wedding, showing the couple posing at the Spencer family home, the bride holding a streaming bouquet of cream and white flowers.

The Earl announced his engagement to his new wife, who will now be known as Countess Spencer, earlier this year.

The pair attended the royal wedding in April, accompanied by the Earl’s three daughters, Lady Kitty, Lady Eliza and Lady Amelia.

Karen is a former model and mother-of-two who was previously married to Mark Gordon – a millionaire film producer, whose credits include Saving Private Ryan and TV series Grey's Anatomy.
