The Mail Online stated that the marriage took place on a Thames River private boat with 150 guests.
According to the story, her bridesmaids were Lennox’s daughters, Lola, 22, and Tali, 19, a model. The bride wore a long white gown with a lace bolero and a headpiece in the style of the 1920s.
The guests were served sashimi and little roast puddings, followed by mini fruitcakes. Oscar winner Colin Firth and American comedian Ruby Wax were among the guests.
A friend was quoted in the Scottish Daily Record as stating, “She and Mitch are probably going to get away for a few days.” Lennox posted a photo of her white and pastel pink wedding flowers on her Facebook page.
