Wedding season is well and truly underway as yet another society couple tied the knot this weekend – the very same one that our Prime Minister Boris Johnson wed First Fiancée Carrie Symonds.
The social set gathered in Cambridge for the second nuptials of Prince Philippos of Greece and Denmark, the youngest son of Greece’s last King Constantine, and Swiss heiress Nina Flohr, who were first wed last December.
This weekend’s celebrations saw Alice and Tom Naylor-Leyland opening the doors of their Stibbington House home to the couple, throwing them a chic bash planned by the society hostess. Unsurprisingly, considering she has her own homeware brand and pioneered tablescaping in lockdown 1.0, Alice had decorated her home beautifully, with white balloons, peonies, monogrammed napkins and photographs of the couple’s first wedding. There was also a three-tiered blue cake, plus a candle-lit supper. Other guests included Violet Henderson and Caroline Rupert.
The bride wore a chic silk dress with high-neckline and cinched in waist, featuring a diamond brooch, while the groom looked dapper in a black tuxedo.
Last year’s civil ceremony in the bride’s hometown of Saint Moritz saw just four in attendance – the bride, the groom, and both of their fathers, King Constantine of Greece and Denmark and Thomas Flohr. On that occasion, the bride wore a chic white bridal suit, with matching tights, T-bar sandals and a chic bow in her hair.
Prince Philippos was named after his cousin, the Duke of Edinburgh. He grew up in London with four older siblings, Princess Alexia, Crown Prince Pavlos, Prince Nikolaos and Princess Theodora. His godparents included Diana, Princess of Wales and King Juan Carlos of Spain, as well as Prince Philip. Meanwhile Nina is the only child of VistaJet businessman Thomas Flohr and his wife Katharina (the couple are now divorced). Flohr previously worked for her father’s business as creative director, but is now an entrepreneur in her own right.
