We’re loving the spectacular star style at Britain’s Got Talent presenter Ant McPartlin’s gorgeous nuptials to his fiancee Anne-Marie Corbett!
The pair tied the knot at St Michael’s Church in Heckfield in Hampshire before heading to a nearby hotel where they treated their guests to a lavish reception followed by spa treatments the following day.
Among the guests at the sumptuous three-day wedding were Ant’s showbiz partner Declan Donnelly, This Morning host Phillip Schofield, TV presenter Patrick Kielty and Cat Deeley, former Chelsea footballer Frank Lampard and TV presenter Christine Lampard, as well as Dermot O’Leary, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams.
Anne-Marie (43), who previously worked as Ant’s personal assistant, looked stunning in her bespoke £15,000 one-shouldered Suzanne Neville gown which featured a detailed bodice and full skirt, teamed with a traditional veil.
She arrived at the church in style in a £300,000 Rolls Royce Cullinan, carrying a pretty bouquet of white and lilac roses, which had a picture of her late father attached to it.
The lilac theme was carried on in the bridesmaids dresses, worn by Anne-Marie’s teen daughters Poppy and Daisy from her previous marriage to Scott Corbett, while Dec’s two-year-old daughter Isla took part in the ceremony as a flower girl.
The 45-year-old groom wore black tie, matching with best man Dec, and the pair posed for the cameras outside the church.
It’s understood that the happy couple had initially been hoping to marry abroad, but decided to hold the ceremony in England because of the pandemic.
The total cost of the wedding has been estimated at around £500,000, with Ant said to have splashed out £100,000 to treat his guests to a two-night stay at Heckfield Place hotel so that they could enjoy the three-day wedding to the full.
He treated his guests to a spa day after the wedding, including £125 reiki treatments and £180 full-body massages, as well as £100 manicures and pedicures.
Anne-Marie’s daughters gave two of the readings at the ceremony, one of them said to be Richard Bach’s poem The Bridge Across The River. Best man Dec said a prayer and delivered one of the readings.
Ant and Anne-Marie’s beloved dogs Harley, a Labrador, and maltipoos Milo and Bumble, were unable to be present on the big day but were featured on the top of the wedding cake.
Among the celebrity guests who thronged into the church were David Walliams who attended with former glamour model Keeley Hazell, Saturday Night Takeaway’s Stephen Mulhern and comedian and presenter Patrick Kielty and his wife Cat Deeley.
Dermot O’Leary was there with his wife Dee Koppang, while Frank and Christine Lampard attended, along with Alesha Dixon and her partner Azuka Ononye.
Britain’s Got Talent star Amanda Holden was absent because she was on holiday with her family but sent her apologies for missing the big day.
Ant is said to have joked about his battle with the booze in a moving speech at the reception, and also paid tribute to his new wife, saying “When Anne-Marie walked into the church, I had to fight to hold it together as she looked so beautiful.”
Saturday Night Takeaway star Stephen Mulhern is said to have performed a stand-up routine at the reception in the marquee in the grounds of Heckfield Place.
The couple shared their first dance to a Coldplay medley, followed by performances by Abba tribute band Bjorn Again and barbershop quartet The Herringbone Cocktail Club.
After the reception Ant and Anne-Marie jetted off on a ‘familymoon’ with the bride’s two daughters.
Ant has described Ann-Marie as his ‘rock’ because of how she supported him through his 2018 drink-driving arrest and his time in rehab.
The pair have been in a relationship since 2018, getting together following McPartlin’s separation from his wife Lisa Armstrong earlier that year.
