Congratulations Holly and Fred

Family, WeddingsMahlon

With the backdrop a private Island, Hollywood royalty and real royalty Princess Beatrice and her sister Eugenie as guests, Sir Richard Branson's daughter Holly gave a whole new meaning to the term 'dream wedding' when she tied the knot with shipbroker Fred Andrews in a ceremony on Necker Island – Richard Branson's beautiful 74-acre island home. All this considered the ceremony was an elegantly understated affair, in keeping with the bride's desire to have "a small wedding with just family and a few friends each". Only 100 invitations were extended. Holly wore flowers in her hair and shunned the traditional veil.

On that occasion he made his entrance swinging from the bottom of a helicopter. And the typical Branson idiosyncrasy peppered Holly's event, with guests asked to bring tents so that the wedding party could camp out under the stars on the golden sands.

In a touching twist, this was the same date and location as when the billionaire himself married the ever lovely Joan Templeman in 1989.
