The fashion mogul, who was wearing a white shirt with a black jacket, was seen wearing a gold wedding band on his finger.
The editor-in-chief tied the knot with long-term partner Alec on his 50th birthday on Monday in a lavish ceremony estimated to have cost at least £600,000 – and that’s not including the money-can’t-buy venue provided by his blue-blooded BFF.
Edward and Alec exchanged vows in the picturesque Orangery in the grounds of Longleat House, in Wiltshire, the 16th-century home of Emma Thynn, Marchioness of Bath, and her husband, the 8th Marquess.
One expert estimated the flowers alone for this portion of the day could have cost in the region of £250,000.

A rose for the lady! Naomi was the receiver of one of Leo’s roses
It is thought D&G model Emma, 35, gave close friends Enninful and Maxwell use of the historic stately home as a wedding present.
But ordinary couples must pay a minimum of £13,800 for venue hire of the Orangery for their ceremony and a marquee for the reception.

In yet another show of Enninful’s VIP status, it is thought he was allowed to host the evening bash for some 300 guests in the house itself, while mere mortals marrying at Longleat can only hold events in the gardens and grounds.
A-listers including Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Victoria Beckham partied the night away, swigging bottles of Champagne and dining on food by high-end London caterers Cellar Society, whose clients typically have a budget in the region of £20,000 to £100,000. Flowers were provided by sought-after royal florist Simon Lycett.
The celebrations continued on Wednesday with a ‘morning after lunch’ at The Bath Arms, a 17-bedroom pub on the Longleat estate, which was entirely booked out to allow some 80 guests met for lunch.
‘I would say a wedding like this would certainly cost around £600,000, if not more,’ Chris Ayre, managing director at AYRE Events told FEMAIL.
Holly Moore, CEO & founder of Make Events, thought it could be double the amount: ‘I would estimate this would be in the region of £1million to 1.5million, because when it comes to dream weddings, they also have the dream price tag.’

Guests were ferried in a fleet of black BMWs to the 9,000-acre Longleat Estate, famous for its lions and safari park. Some on the invite list were flown in by helicopter, including Victoria Beckham.
It was a short trip for friends like Poppy Delevingne, Marc Jacobs and Italian model Bianca Brandolini, who checked into nearby Babington House, part of the Soho House group, ahead of the event.
Rooms at Babington House cost upwards of £400-a-night, with the most expensive accommodation, The Cabin, setting you back £1,180, although it is only open to members.

Fortunately there was no shortage of Soho House card holders at the wedding, with Diane von Furstenberg and influencer Derek Blasberg also bagging rooms.
One local taxi-driver said: ‘It was a hell of a bash apparently, I think they got through rather a lot of champagne. It’s unusual for it to be this busy in February – the place has been full of black BMWs and Mercedes people carriers ferrying guests around.’
As well as champagne, guests were treated to Clase Azul tequila on each table, a source told FEMAIL.
Enninful is said to be a huge tequila fan and wanted a bottle on each table. Each Clase Azul ceramic decanter is hand painted in Mexico by a team of artisans and was set to look visually stunning among the festivities.

It is understood that the service took place once the Longleat Safari Park had closed at 5pm.
The Orangery, which was built by Jeffry Wyatville for the 2nd Marquess of Bath in the early 1800s, was decorated in a simple and elegant fashion. But such pared back luxury doesn’t come cheap, warned Jess Martin, party decorating expert at Ginger Ray.
‘The venue was adorned with beautiful creamy blooms and an abundance of dark green foliage from none other than Simon Lycett, the high profile florist for the likes of Buckingham Palace and Mary Berry,’ she said.
‘The rest of the venue consisted of clean lines and white decorations, achieving a summery “LA” look right in the middle of Bath’s stately home. You can just imagine fashionable gowns and tuxedos standing out against the all-white backdrop making it the perfect place for a Vogue wedding to unfold.
‘All in all, the simple but showstopping display alone could have cost anything over £250,000 as it certainly didn’t compromise in style and quality.’
