- Wedding was distinctly low key as, afterwards, groom was chucked in the pool
Grace Kelly’s granddaughter Charlotte Casiraghi and her film producer fiance have tied the knot in Monaco.
In contrast to the funeral of the American actress, attended by hundreds including Princess Diana in 1982, 32-year-old Charlotte went for a strictly low key affair with a small civil ceremony followed by a relaxed garden party.
Her new husband Dimitri Rassam, 37, even got chucked into a swimming pool in the well-tailored suit that he wore for the big day.
A picture of the happy couple, where Charlotte wore a long-sleeved dress by Diambattista Valli, announced their marriage with the caption ‘just married!’.

For her nuptials, the bride wore a long-sleeved mini-dress with floral detailing and three statement bows. Her hair was styled by John Nollet.
The groom, meanwhile, donned a well-tailored navy suit with a silk baby-blue tie with a pocket square for the nuptials in Monaco’s Ingrimaldia palace, where Grace Kelly was also married in 1956.
The couple have a seven-month-old son called Balthazar.
After the small ceremony Instagram footage, seen by MailOnline, shows guests were allowed to unwind by a pool and to the tune of 1970s-inspired band Alessandro Ristori and the Portofinos.
A hilarious video also shows Dimitri being chucked into a pool by guests. He narrowly dodges a giant inflatable watermelon.
Further images show guests giggling and sipping drinks in a sunlit garden.
