Shania Twain, kebabs, bridesmaids in blue… and Mark in tears

It's now official: Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan are husband and wife.

They said their vows this afternoon in front of 120 of their nearest and dearest, including Towie's Lydia Bright and James Argent, Coronation Street's Brooke Vincent and Antony Cotton, as well as Emmerdale actor Kelvin Fletcher.

The 27-year old bride walked up the aisle to Shania Twain's From This Moment On.

A member of the choir who sang at the ceremony afterwards commented to The Mirror that while Michelle was remarkably composed throughout, Mark was "a little bit emotional" and shed a few tears. "It was a lovely service," they added.

Unusually, Boney M's By The Rivers Of Babylon was among the featured music. 

The pair hadn't seen each other since Friday afternoon, opting to spend the final 48hours before their Big Day apart.

Accompanied by his eight groomsmen and travelling in a giant stretch Hummer, Mr Wright, 28, had turned up at 12.20pm at the pretty St Mary's Church in the town of Bury St Edmunds in the east of England.

Ms Keegan, however, kept everyone waiting a full half an hour – arriving accompanied by her father, Michael, a little after 1.30pm. 

The bride had her heart set on a horse-drawn carriage, but security and privacy concerns necessitated a last-minute swap to a white vintage car – complete with blacked-out windows.

Crowds of local residents had lined the streets hoping to catch a glimpse of the pair, but a €1.7m glossy magazine deal meant they were left disappointed.  

Still, eagle-eyed bystanders observed that Mark was dressed in a swish black tuxedo and bow-tie. Spectators also noted that the seven bridesmaids on duty wore baby blue, floor-length dresses with diamante detailing on the shoulders.

The wedding party later transferred to the opulent Hengrave Hall in Suffolk, a 16th-century manor, for a lavish reception.

On the menu was the likes of posh fish 'n' chips, and savoury pies with mashed potato.

This evening, a further 100 invitees joined them for top-notch entertainment, fireworks, and yet more delicious food including €25-a-pop kebabs sourced from one of the couple's favourite restaurants. A cocktail bar, fairground carousel, and candy cart are all also on offer.

DJ Pat Sharp, who knows Mark from their stint together on I'm a Celebrity back in 2011, told Mail Online today that he will be playing a set this evening.

Mark and Michelle got engaged just nine months after meeting. It has been reported that in total they will end up forking-out €1.4m on their various wedding celebrations.

It is not know yet where they will honeymoon, but it is believed that they have been offered an all expenses trip to Dubai, the city where they first met in December 2012.
