Ellie Goulding and Caspar Jopling are officially Mr and Mrs after the pair tied the knot in a lavish ceremony in York on Saturday.

The stunning York Minster cathedral was covered in white flowers ahead of the ceremony, which began at 3pm on Saturday 31 August.

The couple’s guests were then transported to Castle Howard, a stately home half an hour’s drive from York Minster for the reception.

Ellie and Caspar had held a rehearsal for the big day on Friday, ahead of Saturday’s wedding in front of their star-studded guest list.

Caspar arrived ahead of the bride to welcome his guests – including a host of celebs – to the church, while Ellie arrived later in a blue VW camper van with at least six bridesmaids, all of whom were also dressed in white.

The bride wore a Chloé bespoke wedding dress designed by Natacha Ramsay-Lévi, which featured a high-necked design, complete with a veil as she waved at the crowds assembled outside who were chanting her name, and carried a bouquet made of white flowers matching those outside the cathedral.

The bridesmaids were seen rearranging her veil as she made her way inside to get married, and all of them were in white dresses to match the bride, in an old wedding tradition.

In attendance were singer James Blunt, body coach Joe Wicks, actress Sienna Miller and more. Artist Tracey Emin and comedian Jimmy Carr were also seen arriving at the venue.

Katy Perry and fiance Orlando Bloom were all smiles as they headed in ahead of the ceremony, alongside Sarah Ferguson and Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie.

Prince Harry’s ex-girlfriend, Cressida Bonas was also in attendance, choosing a red floral dress with cork wedges for the occasion.

The couple reportedly used the same events company to arrange their wedding reception as Prince William and Kate Middleton and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle used for theirs.

Police and crowd control had been drafted in to ensure the wedding went without a hitch and that fans were able to watch the celebrities arriving without disturbing the proceedings, and hundreds of people lined the streets around the church awaiting the celebrity couple and their guests.

The couple will also be holding a lunch on Sunday, and have reportedly asked for donations to several charities close to their hearts in lieu of wedding gifts.

Fans had queued up behind barriers erected around York Minster despite the rain, hoping to get a glimpse of the stunning bride and groom as they entered and exited the cathedral.

Ellie and her art dealer husband have been dating since 2017 and announced their engagement in The Times in August 2018, taking out a notice that read: ‘The engagement is announced between Caspar, son of The Hon Nicholas Jopling of Yorkshire and Mrs Jayne Warde-Aldam of Yorkshire, and Elena, daughter of Mr Arthur Goulding of Hertfordshire and Mrs Tracey Sumner of West Midlands.’
