Next month, Christine and Frank Lampard will celebrate their first wedding anniversary – and the upcoming celebration is clearly on the couple's mind. On Monday, the pair both took to Instagram to post a previously unseen photo from their special day, which captures a very precious family moment.

The sweet image shows the bride and groom on the dance floor, each holding one of Frank's daughters, Luna, 11, and nine-year-old Isla. Christine, 37, can be seen beaming at her youngest stepdaughter, while Frank, 38, holds Luna tightly in a warm embrace.

The picture clearly means a great deal to former Chelsea footballer Frank – "Talk about a moment!" he captioned the photograph.

Unsurprisingly it also proved to be a big hit with their followers. "A moment of total love and warmth captured in one shot. Gorgeous family," one fan commented, while another added: "A picture tells a thousand words! Beautiful."

Christine and Frank tied the knot in a fairytale winter wedding ceremony on 20 December, after a four-year engagement. Isla and Luna were of course guests of honour, and both gave emotional speeches during the reception.

Christine has previously spoken about her bond with the two little girls – Frank's children with his ex-partner Elen Rivas – and revealed how Frank waited a year before introducing them.

"I'd like to think if you asked the girls in ten years' time, they would say it was a well-thought-out process," she said of their relationship. "I didn't meet them for a year, on purpose.

"They know I'm their little mate. I don't want to be their mummy. That was never even a thought."
