‘The marriage took place at St Patrick’s, Soho Square, London, of Mr Jeremy Sandford, only son of Mr and Mrs Christopher Sandford of Eye Manor, Leominster, and Miss Nell Dunn, younger daughter of Sir Philip Dunn of Stowell Park, Marlborough, and of Lady Mary Campbell of Stokke Manor, Great Bedwyn.
‘Father Herbert Crees officiated.
‘The bride, who was given away by her father, wore a gown of white chiffon and satin cut on empire lines, with a tight-fitting bodice and very long train embroidered with silver and silk thread in a branch design. Her short, very full tulle veil was held in place by a coronet of white and silver ostrich feathers and flowers and she carried a posy of lilies-of-the-valley and pink berries.
‘Four pages and one young bridesmaid attended her.
‘The pages were Jonathan St Clair Erskine (her cousin), Lord Burghers, the Hon Robert Fermor-Hesketh and Teifion Owen, all of whom wore long tight-fitting crimson linen trousers and ruffed silk shirts.
‘The bridesmaid was Victoria Calvert, who wore a miniature copy of the bride’s dress minus the train, with a narrow crimson sash and a large white hat in the same material, trimmed with white flowers and pink berries. She carried a posy to match.
‘Mr Patrick Killery was best man.
‘A reception was held at the Ritz Hotel and the honeymoon is being spent in Marrakesh, Africa.
‘”A Prelude for Nell”, composed by the bridegroom, was played at the entry of the bride.’
‘One guest at the recent Nell Dunn - Jeremy Sandford wedding has not yet recovered from the lavish Ritz Hotel reception.
‘The other afternoon he tipped a tray of tea over a party of people at Claridge’s.
‘At a party a few hours later he threw a gramophone and a set of long-playing records out of a window. Then he was involved in a fight with a well-known socialite.
‘Most unusual trick of all; he walked off with a hairbrush from a gents’ clockroom.’
