Love in Lombardy? There is a curious lack of interest, once stale gossip and rumour turn out to be true after all. Is that the reason we suppress a yawn of ennui when we hear Rani Mukherjee and Aditya Chopra got married—secretly, too—in Italy. For a few years in the recent past, before the current troika found their feet, Rani was top draw. Couldn't she have got someone with darker whiskers?

Ask Mon Oncle See it as Mammon's homage to Catalonia—this stupendously lavish £50 million Barcelona wedding of Lakshmi Mittal's niece Shrishti. Gaudi himself would have been proud of the melange of cultures: a Hindu-­Western ceremony, Indian and Thai chefs, the Chariots of Fire theme, all held in the Museum of Catalan Art.
