The wedding reception was held at Brook House - and was as equally glittering event as the wedding, with most of the country’s aristocrats and most of the Royal Families of Europe celebrating the Mountbatten’s marriage.  Mountbatten and Edwina left the reception to start their honeymoon at Broadlands and upon arriving at Romsey, huge crowds had amassed and the bells run out from Romsey Abbey.  The newlyweds stayed at her family home for several days of what Mountbatten described as “ four days of perfect, wonderful bliss” but naturally the press continued their attention on the Mountbattens.
