Secret Letters Reveal Audrey Hepburn Wedding Details

In a never-before-seen handwritten letters Audrey Hepburn penned throughout the years, the screen star revealed the details of her top-secret wedding to Mel Ferrer.

It's been over 60 years since Hepburn said her "I do's".

The letters, written in Hepburn's elegant cursive and turquoise ink, were penned between 1951 and 1960 and addressed to her friend and elocution coach Sir Felix Aylmer Aylmer, according to Vanity Fair. They're expected to fetch $6,000 in an auction later this month.

"How dearly we would love you to be with us on our wedding day," the legendary star wrote, referencing the 1954 low-key nuptials in Switzerland she was planning to actor Mel Ferrer, her eventual co-star in the Broadway play Ondine, Sabrina, and War and Peace.

"We will have the car take you up to our mountain peak, Friday, for a gathering in our chalet of our nearest and dearest!... Saturday will be the wedding... We want to keep it a dark secret in order to have it without the 'press.'" The 'I do's' were to take place in "a tiny chapel with a wedding breakfast after," the letters further revealed.
