They stepped out hand in hand and shared a romantic kiss beneath the church's arched doorway. The lavish flowers that decorated the arch were admired by the hundreds of fans that had come along to celebrate the couple's big day.

39-year old Declan arrived at the ceremony in a very fancy Aston Matin Vanquish Carbon and was driven by best man Ant McPartlin. The pair were setting some serious BFF goals today as they wore matching suits to the big event. The bright blue colour went very nicely with their dark shades as the sun came out much to everyone's delight.

Ali, 36, is also Dec's manager. She arrived via Rolls Royce in a stunning ivory gown with an open back complimented with simple veil. She certainly turned heads in her beautiful dress as she stopped outside to give a wave to those waiting for a glimpse of the pair on their way into the ceremony.
Dec's wedding in Newcastle a bit like a royal wedding up here.

Dec's older brother Dermott officiated the ceremony, which took place in the same church that their grandfather Alphonsus' funeral took place in previously.
Among those fans in the crowd were some that had travelled quite a long way hoping to spot some of the many celebs on their way to the ceremony. 65-year old Sheena Greeves travelled from Scotland and told The Mirror:
"I'm from Derry where his mammy and daddy are from. We came from Scotland, my grandson wants to be little Dec. We're big fans."
Other famous faces expected to be at the wedding today included Tess Daly, Vernon Kay, Fearne Cotton, Holly Willoughby, Leigh Francis, former Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts, Philip Schofield, Paddy McGuinness and Andi Peters. Quite the guest list!
Congratulations to the happy couple.
