After reading this article, I've come to know that titles, wealth and the "right stuff" is not a guarantee of class and grace.

Well all parents do have the right to object to their childrens marital partners and we all know the Baths are probably the least traditional noble family in the country. They go well beyond mere eccentricity.

A really beautiful couple. She looks so lovely and he looks so proud.

Lenora - why have you started a completely new thread with the same story?

I started a new thread in "noble weddings" section, as I've seen the duke of Percy's daughter 's wedding was also put there.
If that's not right, the moderators can remove it.

Great!
It's a pity that in our modern time, people could still manifest racism.

Must be very satisfying to the bride and groom to know that while daddy may be a racist, the estate is entailed and there's not much he can do about it.

That's the best part!

She's beautiful and her dress and tiara were fantastic. Best wishes to the both of them for a long and happy marriage.

I don't think the specific reason for Lord Bath not attending his son's wedding was necessarily racism. Emma did mention experiencing some racism from other members of society, but not the Baths themselves. (There still could be some class snobbery there of course)

Bath's son took over managing Longleat in the last few years and has made quite a lot of changes, including removing his father's 'erotic' murals. Perhaps this changing of the guard, of which the mural covering was the final straw that broke the camel's back, has made Bath uncomfortable and unsure of himself. Also seeing your son change a lot of your decisions, which he may regard as the culmination of his life's work, may be turning out to be a hard pill to swallow for Bath. Not attending the wedding could be a way of punishing the son, rather than an objection to the race (or class) of the daughter-in-law.

there is written that Lady Edwina & Daniel Snow are expecting (or have already had) their second child; anyone knows something about this?

I think you're quite right; as far as I know, from reading newspaper reports, the problems between Lord Bath and Viscount Weymouth are due to the fact that Weymouth doesn't approve his father's lifestyle and he has announced that he intends to evict his father's "wifelets" from Longleat estate and remove his father's erotic/pornographic murals from the House.

The news of the second pregnancy of Daniel and Lady Edwina Snow was reported by the Daily Mail on 24 April 2013, though it doesn't say when the baby is due.
