The wedding was held at St Michael’s Church and was presided over by Rev Canon Dr Marion de Quidt, who spoke of her joy at being asked to take part in the nuptials.

It was a Church of England service and featured a series of moving readings from the couple’s closest friends and family.

Two readings were given by Anne-Marie’s daughters, from her first marriage, with one said to be Richard Bach’s poem The Bridge Across The River about soulmates.

Dec Donnelly, the second half of the much-loved duo was Ant’s best man and also said a prayer and performed one of the readings.

Anne-Marie wore a beautiful one-shouldered £15,000 Suzanne Neville gown with a detailed bodice, full skirt and with a traditional veil.

She arrived at the church in a £300,000 Rolls-Royce Cullinan and carried a pink and purple bouquet.

The bride also added a moving tribute to her late dad by adding a picture of him to her bouquet and carried it down the aisle with her.
