Speaking about the magical day, she told The Mirror: "We've hired a big house for the reception, we've both got big families - so we’re just having a house party. “The church is where all my family were christened and where my gran was a church organist." The pair share two children, five-year-old Ernie and Louis, four.

Chatting about his family, Richie previously told The Times: "My wife and kids bring me down to earth. I played one night on Sky Sports and got man of the match and I come home, and the kids have peed the bed. It’s not great when you know that you’re going home to your bed that’s been weed in. I don’t think you can dwell or kick two stones whether you’ve dropped a pass or missed a tackle."
