Top divorce lawyer weds at Winchester Cathedral

Basingstoke Gazette: Ayesha Vardag and her new husband Stephen Bence Ayesha Vardag and her new husband Stephen Bence

A SMALL crowd braved last Saturday’s rain showers to watch wealthy divorce lawyer Ayesha Vardag leave Winchester Cathedral having just tied the knot for the second time.

With brollies at the ready, they were rewarded by a possession of a bride in a flame-coloured frock and gold be-jewelled tiara, a groom sporting a large red rose in the button hole of his morning suit, plus a stream of well-heeled guests.

Vardag, who is now honeymooning with new husband Stephen Bence in the United States, has lived in the Cathedral Close for the past four years.

Her London-based family law firm Vardags handles the break-ups of some of the country’s richest couples, while she is acclaimed for helping to make pre-nup agreements binding under English law.

The 46-year-old eschewed traditional white for her second wedding dress which, like her first, was sewn for her by her mother Barbara.

No, surely the Tatler would have better taste.

Two articles about this woman that no one has heard of. At least this one isn't a straight out of OK Magazine.

Presumably her PR firm thought it was worth while writing these pieces and submitting them to the Chronicle.

Hope he got her to sign a pre-nuptual agreement.
She really should have spent more money on a better style designer.
