Jacqui looked exquisite in an ivory lace dress, a halo of summer flowers in her hair. One photo shows her ahead of her marriage to Guy, smiling broadly as she stands with his two sons from his previous marriage to Madonna: Rocco, 14, and nine-year-old David. For the men, cream suits seemed to be the order of the day; Guy and a number of his guests, including David and Brad, wore light-coloured suits for the occasion, with the groom also donning a matching hat.

Guy and Jacqui decided on a festival theme for their wedding. On the morning of the ceremony, a giant marquee and a number of white tents and cabins were set up on the grounds of their Ashcombe House estate.
Brad Pitt also attended the star-studded nuptials
The couple, who have been together for 5 years and have 3 children together, celebrated with their guests at a reception held in the beautifully-decorated main marquee, dining on food created by celebrity chef Jamie Oliver.
David flew in from LA on Wednesday night especially for the nuptials – and just a few hours before the ceremony, posted a sweet message for the nearly-weds. "What a beautiful day it's going to be," he wrote alongside a photo of himself and Guy. "I want to wish my mate and his beautiful bride an amazing day where friends and family come together to celebrate what they have and are going to create together over the years to come."

Unfortunately, David wife's Victoria Beckham was unable to attend the wedding, but she also shared a sweet message for the new Mr and Mrs Ritchie. Alongside a photo of a message that read 'Happily Ever After' on Instagram, she wrote: "Congratulations to @jacquiainsley and @realguyritchie love and best wishes to you on your wedding day x vb."
