Off to London for the Dellal-Crewe Wedding Ceremony

On a Sunday afternoon in late May, I was off to the London countryside for the Dellal-Crewe wedding, which was held at Guy and Andrea Dellal’s home. Max Crewe and Charlotte Dellal, now Mrs. Charlotte Crewe, beamed as they said their vows under the huppa made of trees and flowers. Her gown was by designer Giambattista Valli.

All of the former American Express head honchos, including Ed Cooperman, Phil Reese, and John Crewe, were in attendance, along with the groom’s mother, Carmen Crewe; my mother, Judy Cooperman; the bride’s mother, Andrea Dellal; the bride’s brother, Alex Dellal, who is dating Princess Charlotte; the bride’s sister, Alice Dellal; London “It” girl, Margherita Missoni; Tatiana Santo Domingo; Derek Blasberg, the author of Classy: Exceptional Advice for the Extremely Modern Lady; superstar DJ Mark Ronson (who was there as a guest, not doing his DJ thing); Vito Schnabel; Jean Pigozzi; Clarke Crewe; Brett Murray; Vogue Associate Accessories Editor Serena Nikkhah; Francesca Versace; Lisa Reuben; Simon Reuben; and Jamie Diner.

Cocktail hour was held outside, while dinner and dancing was inside a glass tent imported from Italy. Seated at my table was Vogue stylist Caroline Sieber and her charming boyfriend Fritz von Westenholz. On the property, photo shoots were taking place in one of the cottages, which was staged with the backdrop of a half moon in a nighttime setting. The party went into the wee hours of the following next morning.

What a wedding!
