Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes

This Morning couple Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes said 'I do' in the 19th century grand Hampshire hotel The Elvetham on 26 June 2010 in front of guests including Footballers Wives star Zoe Lucker, Gloria Hunniford, Jeremy Kyle and The Royale Family actress Sue Johnston.

For her big day, Ruth looked divine in a sumptuous creation, by Italian designer Angelina Colarusso. The pearl-coloured silk taffeta confection was sensuously sculpted and delicately adorned with bursts of tiny Swarovski crystals. "When I first met Angelina I told her I wanted a soft, dove-grey dress with long sleeves and not too 'weddingy'," explained Ruth. "As you can see I was seduced by her genius design and it brought out the bride in me. I never thought I’d hear myself say this but I really do feel like a princess in Angelina's dress!"

Eamonn was enamoured by his bride telling HELLO!: "Ruth was the missing jigsaw piece in my life. I was meant to be married – I never saw any joy in the bachelor lifestyle and when I met Ruth, not only did I fall deeply in love with her, but she had so many attributes that I admire. She's a wonderful mummy to Jack, a fantastic partner both personally and professionally, and now, I'm proud to say, she's my beautiful wife."

Robbie could not contain his joy when he laid eyes on his beautiful bride in her exquisite, snow-white Monique Lhuillier wedding gown with netted silk taffeta skirt and laced, beaded corset. "Ayda looked like the most beautiful girl in the world," he told HELLO!. "The setting was so magical, and to be surrounded by family and close friends and then see Ayda appear looking so radiant was almost too much for me to take.

Vogue Williams and Spencer Matthews

Just over a year after their intimate Scottish wedding, Vogue Williams and Spencer Matthews said 'I do' for a second time in September, so they could celebrate with friends including Millie Mackintosh and Hugo Taylor, and Jamie Laing who officiated the ceremony. The wedding was extra-special, as their one-year-old son Theodore was also involved. "He only made a fleeting appearance," explained his mum. "He was supposed to be a page boy and walk up the aisle on his walker but he didn't manage it… So I carried him up the aisle, and it was actually nicer like that." Added Spencer: "It was so great for him to be a part of his mummy and daddy getting hitched, and we will be able to show him the photos when he gets older."
