Lisa Faulkner and John Torode married in a fairytale wedding ceremony in Northamptonshire on Thursday, surrounded by their family and celebrity friends. But the couple are yet to go on their honeymoon, as John had a very important job to do first. The MasterChef star was out on Tuesday night to help present the Young Chef and Young Waiter Awards in central London, which has a special place in his heart as he has won the accolade himself in the past, which led onto his successful career. While on stage, John's co-host joked that he had "sacrificed his honeymoon" to be there for the event.

We laughed, we cried, we sung, we danced, we had the most wonderful celebration of love with friends and family it was the best." Their special day was attended by many famous faces, including Angela Griffin, Gregg Wallace, Tamzin Outhwaite and Amanda Holden – who stepped out with her crutches after breaking her leg on holiday in Cyprus.
