Eliza Pearson, the eldest daughter of Lord and Lady Cowdray, is pictured with her new husband Ned RocknRoll after their open-air pagan wedding ceremony on Saturday in the grounds of Cowdray Park.
Ned is the 31-year-old nephew of Sir Richard Branson who works on his uncle’s space venture, Virgin Galactic, and recently changed his name by deed poll from Ned Abel Smith.
Sir Richard was at the ceremony.
The sun shone on the couple for their unusual wedding, led by the druid JJ Middleway, under the avenue of wellingtonia trees near Lord and Lady Cowdray’s meditation pyramid in their garden
The ceremony, attended by around 70 family members, involved nature and the four elements, earth, wind, fire and water, combined with the points of the compass, north, south, east and west.
Eliza, who becomes the Hon Eliza RocknRoll, helped to design her wedding dress. All the men wore tails with flamboyant trousers
