Rachel Stevens and her fiancé Alex Bourne this weekend married in a lavish ceremony held at Claridge’s in London.
The bride’s dress has yet to be revealed as the ceremony has been snapped up by an exclusive magazine deal, but sightings of orchids, white roses, ice sculptures and candles being carried into the hotel indicated it was a grand affair.
The groom arrived just before 4pm, looking dapper in a long black coat, a tailored, grey suit, patent shoes and a silver tie.
Guests included Coronation Street star Kate Ford, who wore a hot-pink frock and peep-toe kitten heels.
But Rachel wasn’t the only star saying 'I do' this weekend.
Heroes star Ali Larter also wed her actor beau Hayes MacArthur in an intimate ceremony at his parents' estate in Maine.
Unusually, guests arrived at the bash on trolleys to watch the pair tie the knot on the lawn.
And it wasn’t just Hollywood’s leading ladies getting hitched, either – this weekend also saw the wedding of Boogie Nights star Mark Wahlberg and his long-term love, Rhea Durham.
The pair tied the knot at the Good Shepherd Catholic Church in Beverly Hills, and the bride looked stunning in a strapless, empire-line gown with beautiful embroidered detailing.
Congratulations all round!
