Mark Wright wept through wedding to Michelle Keegan

Mark Wright wept as he married Michelle Keegan yesterday (24.05.15).

The 28-year-old former 'The Only Way Is Essex' star cried with joy when he saw his beautiful 27-year-old bride walking down the aisle in an ivory strapless dress at St Mary's Church, in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, despite her arriving 30 minutes late.

An insider told The Sun newspaper: "He was very wobbly standing at the altar. There was nervousness in the air, but when she arrived a tear streamed down his cheek and his face was beaming.

"She didn't cry though, as Northern lasses don't get as soppy as Essex boys. They both looked really happy."

More than 300 fans lined the streets outside the church, hoping to catch a glimpse of Michelle in her wedding dress, but she and Mark - who arrived in a Hummer - went to great lengths to keep themselves hidden, due to a magazine deal.

Michelle's fellow former 'Coronation Street' castmates Antony Cotton, Beverley Callard and Brooke Vincent were among the 120 guests at the £1.2million do, as well as 'TOWIE' couple James 'Arg' Argent and Lydia Bright and 'Emmerdale''s Kelvin Fletcher.

After the ceremony, coaches took everyone to 16th-century Hengrave Hall for a Tudor-themed reception, where there were two wedding breakfast menus to choose from, as Michelle's Manchester friends and family were served fish and chips while the Essex party enjoyed pie and mash.

Mark's former 'Strictly Come Dancing' partner Karen Hauer was at the reception, and performed a dance for the guests, before a disco to end the day.
