SHE is normally the one taking the pictures, but award-winning photographer Nathalie Daoust is on the other side of the camera today when she marries Lord Montagu of Beaulieu’s younger son Jonathan.

Nathalie, 37, and 38-year-old Jonathan Montagu were tying the knot in the Upper Drawing Room – a former chapel, at Palace House, the family’s ancestral home in the New Forest.

Immediately before the ceremony Lord Montagu’s other son, the Hon Ralph Montagu, was due to drive Nathalie around Beaulieu in a 1909 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost from the National Motor Museum, which the peer founded in the 1950s.

The 105-year-old car was completing its journey at the Palace Lane clockhouse, where a crowd of well-wishers were expected to gather.

Guests at the wedding were set to include actor Andrew Lancel, 44, whose TV credits include Coronation Street, The Bill and Bad Girls.

Jonathan is an Eton-educated biochemist who met his Canadian bride-to-be during a trip to the Far East last October.

Speaking after their engagement was announced earlier this year, Lady Fiona Montagu, Lord Montagu’s second wife and Jonathan’s mother, said: “Nathalie has really good values, courage and artistic talent. She is very brave – she even managed to get inside North Korea for a project.”

Lord Montagu, 87, was present when Jonathan was born at Southampton General Hospital in 1975.

After leaving Eton, Jonathan went to Cold Spring Harbour, the Long Island laboratory set up by Professor Jim Watson, who helped discover DNA.

Nathalie, whose photographic projects have included Tokyo’s red light district, studied at Cegep du Vieux college in Montreal in the 1990s.
