Richard E Grant’s daughter has tied the knot and, ever the proud father, he’s keen to get everyone involved in the celebrations.

The 67-year-old actor’s only child with his late wife Joan Washington, casting associate Olivia, had a civil ceremony with Florian Herbst in London on Monday (July 8).

In lavish style, their intimate nuptials were followed by a wedding breakfast at Scott’s in Mayfair and a ‘truly spectacular’ dinner at the iconic Ritz Hotel in London.

Sharing a picture of the happy couple under an umbrella in front of the latter celebrity hot spot on a rainy day, he shared on X: ‘Our beloved daughter @OliviaGranted married Florian Herbst yesterday in a Civil Ceremony with only his parents and me, present.

‘Wedding breakfast at Scott’s and a truly spectacular dinner @theritzlondon and suite sleepover. Royally treated!! [sic]’

Taking to the comments, fans and famous friends were keen to offer their congratulations, with the likes of Fearne Cotton commenting red love hearts.

The happy news comes three years after the family were left devastated by the death of Joan, who died aged 75 from lung cancer in September 2021.

Saltburn star Richard, who married the dialect coach in 1986 and is stepfather to her son Tom, thanked everyone for their messages of support earlier this year.

In a New Year message to his fans on his Instagram, he penned: ‘Thank you to all my friends and followers on social media for the incredible support and love I’ve felt, especially over the last two years, and I’ve been buoyed up and hovercrafted by your support and feedback.

‘Wishing you – to every one of you – the finest health for 2024, and all good things to come.’

Richard grinned: ‘Yeah, baby – up, up and away.’

His clip ended with a video of lights and a lakeside scene and was captioned: ‘HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! Pockets filled with Happiness.’

Before then, he vented his frustration over former friends abandoning him after Joan’s death.

He said in a conversation at The Times and Sunday Times Cheltenham Literature Festival in October: ‘Subsequent to her death, I have had people cross the road rather than talk.

‘Whether they think you’re going to fall apart and you’re an emotional wreck, I don’t know. But I will never speak to them again.’

He went on to recall an occasion during which a couple who’d lived near his and Joan’s holiday home in France ignored him when he waved.
