The mother of the bride, Francesca von Thyssen-Bornemisza, shared new photos of her daughter’s civil marriage.
“My beloved daughter Eleonore just married Jerome D’Ambrosio, my fantastic new son in law in an intimate ceremony in at the Mairie of Monaco, observing all the restrictions of social distancing, followed by a very cosy lunch that was organised at a beautiful property belonging to a dear old friend in Cap d’antillbes. It was such a lovely day, such a precious moment with so much love in the air! A whole collection of hats was produced my world class milliner Stephen Jones for all of us! The happy couple are “Je ne sais où!” on a short honeymoon before Jerome has to go to Berlin for the next series of Formula E races as the season finally is about to start! Bless them both for all the love that they shared with only direct familly and a few close friends from Monaco. No one flew in, no one came from afar… but the match was made in heaven!”Francesca von Thyssen-Bornemisza
The bride also shared photos of her wedding with her now husband Jérôme d’Ambrosio.
