While approximately 500 million people watched her walk down the aisle at Westminster Abbey as a bridesmaid in the 1986 wedding of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, 300 friends and family members looked on as Lady Rosanagh Innes-Ker make her grand entrance inside Kelso Old Parish Church on July 26, 2008– her own wedding day. Once considered as a possible candidate to win the heart of Prince William, destiny decreed that Viscount James Grimston would be the man waiting at the altar to make her his wife, the Southern Reporter revealed.
Clutching a bouquet of white roses interspersed with blue blossoms, a leaf-design tiara gave the Duke of Roxburghe’s daughter a regal air as she walked down the aisle in a classic white wedding dress, the garment’s pristine color harmonizing with the hue of her flower girls’ dresses, which were accented with tartan sashes in a nod to their Scottish surroundings.
After receiving a wedding band to accompany her emerald engagement ring, the newlyweds were whisked away to Floors Castle in Kelso, Scotland, a site owned by the bride’s family which earned the honor of being the chosen locale of Prince Andrew when he proposed to Sarah Ferguson. Inside a marquee erected on the grounds, the happy couple accepted the best wishes of such esteemed guests as Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, who recently celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary, and the former Laura Parker-Bowles (daughter of Prince Charles’ wife, the Duchess of Cornwall) and her husband, Harry Lopes.
