AS the sun set in Rome on Saturday night, Princess Diana's niece Lady Kitty Spencer married her very own Prince Charming in a stunning 17th century Italian villa.
Lady Kitty, 30, and Michael Lewis, 62, confirmed their romance in 2018 after reportedly being introduced by former Defence Secretary Liam Fox.
The billionaire fashion tycoon – who owns high street fashion chains Whistles and Phase Eight – popped the question the following year.
This weekend, the couple were able to have the wedding of their dreams after two years of planning – and there's no denying it looked fit for a Princess.
Here Fabulous delves into the high society wedding of the year – from Kitty's FIVE stunning designer dresses to star-studded guest list.
Kitty has been modelling for Dolce & Gabbana since 2017 and was even named the Italian fashion house's global ambassador last year.
So it'll come as no surprise that designers Domenico and Stefano were the brain behind the Victorian-inspired white lace gown Kitty walked down the aisle in.
Taking style notes from Kate Middleton and Princess Beatrice, the bride opted for a long-sleeved lace gown with trendy puff sleeves.
She completed her stunning bridal look with a sheer white veil and styled her blonde hair into a low bun.

But while the Duchess of Cambridge, Princess Eugenie and Meghan Markle have all opted for two different dresses for their ceremony and reception, Kitty took it up a notch with her FIVE frocks.
Sharing the designs with their 26m Instagram followers, Dolce & Gabbana proudly said the hand-made dresses had been designed exclusively to celebrate the "beauty of the bride".
Alongside her white lace gown, Kitty modelled a light blue strapless gown embroidered with pink flowers and featuring a fitted bodice.
On top of this, the bride could have easily passed for Grace Kelly in an emerald green cap-sleeved dress with voluminous floral skirt and ribbon belt.
For her fourth gown, Kitty chose a highly decorative white-and-green bespoke dress which had a lace underlady and and a multitude of fake flowers over the bodice.
As for her last dress, the bride went out with a bang with a gold sequin frock with a scoop neckline which Kitty offset with a matching jewel necklace.
