Weekend weddings: Kate Moss marries Jamie Hince; Prince Albert and Charlene Wittstock celebration continues

July 1, 2011 |  4:51 pm

Exclusive contracts be darned! Photos of supermodel Kate Moss' wedding to rocker Jamie Hince hit the wires right away after their wedding on Friday in Southrop, England -- even though we thought we'd have to wait until Vogue's September issue to see some bridal pics, since Vogue is planning a big spread devoted to the nuptials. Moss wore a vintage-style gown by John Galliano, with a diaphanous skirt that showed off her long legs.  Hince was in a light blue Stefano Pilati for YSL suit, giving his ensemble a rock twist with a pair of sunglasses. Kate's daugher, Lila Grace, was among the 15 bridesmaids, some of whom are shown here. [Daily Mail]


Meanwhile, over in Monaco, Prince Albert married former South African Olympic swimmer Charlene Wittstock in a civil ceremony during Day 2 of their wedding extravaganza. (Day 1 was marked by an Eagles concert; Day 3 on Saturday will be an elaborate religious ceremony with 2,000 invited guests, a dinner for 500 and fireworks over the Mediterranean.) For the civil ceremony, in the prince's Throne Room, Wittstock wore a rather demure sky blue Chanel ensemble. Here, Monaco Mayor Georges Marsan delivers a speech outside after the ceremony, as the royal couple look on. This wedding is one we have mixed feelings about. Rumors swirled that Wittstock was going to back out, given the prince's apparent propensity for having children out of wedlock (two have been acknowledged so far). But who can resist a good party?   [Los Angeles Times]
