Geri Halliwell danced to The Four Tops at wedding

Geri Halliwell's wedding band was the legendary soul group The Four Tops.

Geri and her new husband Christian Horner danced the night away to hits such as 'Reach Out' and 'Baby I Need Your Loving' performed live by the Motown hitmakers at the reception held in the grounds of country house Woburn Abbey in Bedfordshire, East England, last Friday (15.05.15).

The appearance by The Four Tops - of which Abdul 'Duke' Fakir is the only original member - was part of a musical theme throughout the day, as a recital of the lyrics from Bob Marley's song 'He's Not Perfect', which includes the line "Perfect guys don't exist, but there's always one guy that is perfect for you", replaced a traditional religious reading during the marriage ceremony at St. Mary's church in Woburn, Bedfordshire.

And Geri couldn't resist serenading her Formula One boss husband with an acoustic version of the Spice Girls hit 'Wannabe', as guests , including Geri's former bandmate Emma Bunton, cheered her on.

Reverend Nicholas Gumbel - a friend of Pope Francis I who the pop star met when she took his 'Introduction to Christianity' course - was responsible for marrying the couple.

Whilst enjoying fine dining and champagne, the wedding party were surrounded by priceless works of art by Rembrandt and Van Dyck.

Other celebrities who joined the happy couple included Myleene Klass, Amanda Holden, Jennifer Saunders - who penned the short-lived Spice Girls musical 'Viva Forever! - and Dawn French.
