In this article from the Western Mail, news from Paris informs readers about a cheering crowd of 3000 people, mostly women, who mobbed Miss Barbara Hutton, the American Woolworths’ heiress, and Russian Prince Alexis Mdivani as they left the church after their wedding in June 1933. Hutton’s wedding gown is described as a pearl-coloured satin dress with a medieval design and a train.
