Photographer Anouska Beckwith enjoys bohemian theme at her wedding
EDEN CONFIDENTIAL: Arty photographer Anouska Beckwith enjoys a bohemian theme at her wedding as she wears a flower crown while exchanging vows with breathwork therapist Luke McSwiney at a chapel in Bath
Having enjoyed an unconventional hen weekend visiting sacred wells in Cornwall and undertaking activities such as ‘mermaid baths’ and spiritual bridal blessings, arty photographer Anouska Beckwith continued the bohemian theme at her wedding.
The 36-year-old daughter of former ‘It-girl’ Tamara Beckwith wore a flower crown as she exchanged vows with breathwork therapist Luke McSwiney, 38, at a chapel in Bath, Somerset.
Here, she’s pictured with her maid of honour, Alice Howlett, right, a make-up artist whose clients include Spice Girl Mel B.
Luna, Anouska’s four-year-old daughter with Luke, was the ring bearer. Tamara, 53, has spoken fondly of being a grandmother, insisting on being referred to as a ‘Glam-ma’.
She has described the newlyweds as ‘very calm, very serene — whereas I’m always on the hoof’.

Lefties love nothing more than depicting Britain as a hotbed of xenophobia, but Emily Maitlis suggests our EU neighbours are far less open to different cultures.
‘I’ve lived in France and I love it for, ‘This is what we do, as this is the way we do it’,’ the former Newsnight presenter says.
‘But, God forbid, if you break any rules, and, I think, Italy’s the same . . . if you try and open a Thai restaurant or any different culture, there’s actually quite a lot of push-back.’
She adds on Ruthie’s Table 4 podcast: ‘Britain has been much more accepting of other cultures, other fusions, and is just a bit more adventurous.’
Ellie makes her £700 bra the star at Cannes
Haven’t got a stitch to wear? Here’s one designer outfit you could make at home.
Ellie Bamber, who starred in the BBC’s hit adaptation of Les Miserables, stepped out at the Cannes Film Festival wearing a Miu Miu crochet-knit triangle bra whose price tag could present a knotty problem at £700. Her pleated Batavia skirt, by the same brand, was even more pricey, at £1,650.
The 26-year-old has been cast as Kate Moss in the forthcoming film Moss And Freud, about the supermodel’s friendship with painter Lucian Freud, who died in 2011 aged 88.
Moss, now 49, had mentioned Freud as being the person she most wanted to meet. This led him to ask her to be his muse.
She posed for him nude while heavily pregnant with daughter Lila in 2002. The portrait sold for £3.9 million at auction.

Fay Ripley is taking desperate measures in her quest to become a grandmother.
‘I am so broody, and all the time,’ admits the Cold Feet star, 57. ‘My daughter is actually now 20, and it’s not right, but I’m encouraging an early pregnancy. I’m actively hiding contraception.’
The actress, pictured with Parker, gave birth to her daughter at the age of 36 and adds: ‘I was an old mum in the first place. I can’t hang about. I understand it’s your life but what about mine?
‘And my 16-year-old son . . . you know, again, I’ll give it another year and then I’ll start going in there as well, saying, ‘Come on, what you got for me?”

Will Jacobi’s Bard TV show cause a tempest?
King Charles used to argue with his father every Christmas over whether William Shakespeare actually wrote his plays.
Prince Philip was a so-called anti-Stratfordian, a group who believe Shakespeare’s canon was written by others.
The group includes Sir Derek Jacobi, the celebrated actor who, I can reveal, has signed up to a TV series that will question the authenticity of the playwright’s work.
A source on the newly announced series, The Rosy Cross: The Rebels Who Wrote Shakespeare, tells me at the Cannes Raindance Filmmakers’ party: ‘Derek has signed up to join the production and we’re discussing what role he’ll be playing. Who knows, he might even play the Bard himself.’ To be or not to be the Bard . . .
It’s a highlight of the BBC’s arts coverage, but the Bafta awards are one big bore to newsreader Huw Edwards.
Giving the annual Philip Geddes Memorial Lecture, on the subject of ‘What’s the point of the BBC’ at Oxford’s Natural History Museum, Edwards described the Baftas as ‘a prolonged three hours of medieval torture’.
The Welshman, 61, was less forthcoming when he touched on the problems he apparently endured during the rehearsals for the Coronation. ‘That’s one for when I’ve left the BBC,’ he teases.
