Marriage for Lady Edwina Grosvenor

Lady Edwina Grosvenor, 29, and Dan Snow, 31, were married "secretly" on Saturday, according to Richard Kay's column in Tuesday's Daily Mail. 
"Neither of us wanted a big white wedding.  We are delighted we have  been to plan a simple and relaxed wedding exactly as we wished, with our families around us," the couple said in a statement released to the media.
The couple were married at Bishop's Lodge in Woolton, Liverpool.  The ceremony was conducted by the Bishop of Liverpool.  Only immediate family and friends attended the wedding.
Daniel Robert Snow was born December 3, 1978 at London, the son of  former Newsnight anchor Peter Snow, and the Canadian-born Ann Elizabeth MacMillan.   He is a great-great grandson of British Prime Minister David Lloyd George through his mother.
[Lloyd George was created Earl Lloyd-George of Dwyfor.  His daughter, Lady Olwen, married Sir Thomas Evans.   Their second daughter, Eluned Jane, married a Canadian Robert Laidlaw MacMillan.  Ann, who was born in 1946, was their second daughter.  Ann married Dublin-born Peter Snow in 1976.  Snow's first marriage to Alison Carter ended in divorce.]
Lady Edwina is a "philanthropist working in the criminal justice system," and has been Bishop Jones' Personal Assistant "in his capacity as Bishop for Prisons."  Dan is a historian and television presenter.
The newlyweds will go on their honeymoon in January 2011.
Trivia Fact:  Lady Edwina was the first godchild of the late Diana, Princess of Wales.  The private baptism took place in February 1982.
Lady Edwina and her husband live near the New Forest in Hampshire.  In 2009, Lady Edwina bought the Palladian mansion for £10 million from mercenary Simon Mann.

Yes. Palladian is a style - I believe Broadlands is also Palladian.
