Christine Bleakley and Frank Lampard tie the knot

Christine Bleakley and Frank Lampard have tied the knot.

The TV presenter married her soccer star boyfriend - who plays for New York City FC - in London on Sunday (20.12.15), four years after they got engaged.

Christine - wearing a stunning Suzanne Neville gown - was chauffeured to St Paul's church in Knightsbridge for the ceremony.

Famous friends of the pair including Phillip Schofield and his wife Stephanie Lowe, designer Kelly Hoppen, Piers Morgan and his wife Celia Walden and TV presenters Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly with their respective spouses, Lisa Armstrong and Ali Astall, were all in attendance.

Former soccer player Jamie Redknapp, who is a cousin of the groom, and his wife Louise attended, along with Jamie's father Harry and Frank's ex-teammate John Terry.

Following the church service, guests were invited to celebrate with a reception at lavish members'-only The Arts Club in Central London.

Speaking previously about their plans for the wedding, Christine said: "It will be our nearest and dearest invited, people we are close to, it will be family-oriented.

"Hopefully it will be good food, good drink and a good old knees-up. It will be a bit of an old-fashioned wedding in that respect.

"Would we do a deal with a glossy magazine? I don't think so. It's not for us."
