Madeleine later changed into a white bikini and danced in front of guests
Most brides wait until the honeymoon to start stripping off for the beach, but the new wife of Sam Sangster, son of late racing magnate Robert Sangster, couldn’t hold out that long.
Bloodstock agent Sam, 31, married yoga instructor Madeleine Crewe-Read, 30, at the weekend in a ceremony in Barbados, followed by a party at Nikki Beach.
Sporting an elegant white lace dress for the nuptials, Madeleine later changed into a white bikini and danced in front of guests (right).
Sam is the son of glamorous socialite Susan Sangster, who was called a ‘career divorcee’ after amassing a fortune through her four marriages.

Doctor Jodie goes pout on the town with drag queen
She’s mastered the art of time travel as the first female Doctor Who, but actress Jodie Whittaker met her match when she encountered her namesake at a recent charity bash.

The 36-year-old blonde enjoyed a pout-off with London’s best-known drag queen, DJ Jodie Harsh, at the Terrence Higgins Trust party at the Cuckoo Club in Mayfair (left).
Harsh, 33, whose real name is Jay Clarke and who regularly parties with supermodel Kate Moss, shared this picture online with the caption: ‘Finally!! Jodie met Jodie.’
David Hockney, who became the highest-selling living artist last week when one of his works sold for £70 million, says the price of art is excessive and has questioned the ethics of the industry’s finances.
With a £62 million estimate, the painting, above, which belongs to billionaire Spurs owner Joe Lewis, is expected to break all records for a living artist. It is one of Hockney’s best known and most reproduced works
‘The price of art is so ridiculous, I just assume it’s drug money,’ says the artist, 81.
‘Because that money’s not sitting in cardboard boxes in Colombia, it’s being invested.’
Hockney’s Portrait Of An Artist (Pool With Two Figures) sold in New York after a ten-minute bidding battle.
Love artfully: Freud’s cryptic gift
Broadcaster Emma Freud, 56, is upping the ante with her partner, screenwriter Richard Curtis, 62, with whom she has four children.

‘My birthday present to Richard,’ she wrote next to this image of neon-lit artwork which she posted on social media. ‘Living happily opposite his desk in our study. Loving the use of past tense to keep him on his toes.’
The romcom king (right with Freud) had the nation weeping as Hugh Grant declared undying love for Andie MacDowell in the rain in Four Weddings And A Funeral, but his own romantic life seems much less rose-tinted.
He did once concede in an interview that he ‘might’ one day pop the question, however Curtis has never proposed to Freud and even managed to forget their 25th anniversary in 2014. Or is that love, actually?
Actress Helena Bonham Carter has been sworn to secrecy over her new role as Princess Margaret in hit Netflix series The Crown.
But she has been able to turn to her psychotherapist mother, Elena Bonham Carter, for guidance.
‘I knew Princess Margaret well and met her very many times,’ says 82-year-old Elena at singer Miel de Botton’s album launch at Ours in Chelsea.
‘Of course, that first-hand knowledge can give a little insight for my daughter.’
Their romance didn’t survive after his release as a hostage in the Middle East, but broadcaster John McCarthy touchingly says he still ‘loves’ his ex-fiancee, Jill Morrell.
McCarthy, 61, who split with Jill four years after his release in 1991, for which she tirelessly campaigned, is now married to photographer Anna Ottewill and has a 13-year-old daughter, Lydia.
McCarthy says: ‘I saw Jill a couple of weeks ago. [We] are still very close. The love I feel for her is there still.’
