After a four-year engagement, Christine Bleakley and Frank Lampard tied the knot in a fairytale winter wedding on Sunday evening. The romantic ceremony took place at Saint Paul's Church in Knightsbridge, central London.
For the nuptials, the 36-year-old donned a breathtaking wedding dress featuring intricate lace embroidery on the sleeves and corset, set off with pretty pearl embellishments. The princess-like creation was cinched at the waist, before falling to the floor in a dramatic sweep of gauze.
