Hollyoaks' Ali Bastian marries David O'Mahony in 'magical' fairytale ceremony

Hollyoaks star Ali Bastian has got married to her partner David O’Mahony in a beautiful secret wedding ceremony.

The 37-year-old soap actress tied the knot quietly in Old Marylebone Town Hall last month, surrounded by a handful of their closest celebrity pals.

Her former co-star Carley Stenson sang as Ali walked down the aisle to her groom, who admitted he was so emotional watching his wife-to-be approach him.

The pair, who met at a showbiz event in 2016, invited Danny Mac, Westlife’s Kian Egan and wife Jodi Albert to their nuptials and described their big day as “magical”.

“It was everything I dreamed of and more. It really was the happiest day of my life,” Ali told OK! magazine.

David admitted: “Ali took my breath away. She looked absolutely stunning, so incredibly gorgeous. I felt so proud – proud of how beautiful she looked, and proud that she was on time.

“We held each other’s hands so tightly all the way through the ceremony. We were both on the edge of tears.”

He continued: “I’m very grateful to Ali for being my perfect partner. So the last person I thanked was Ali – I’m so proud, grateful and in love with her, it was very emotional to declare that in front of a room full of people.”

David has previously confessed to having a poster of Ali on his wall at university, laughing that he wishes he could go back to his 19-year-old self and say it’ll all be great.

Speaking about the moment they met, Ali said: “The moment David walked in I remember thinking, I’m in so much trouble!

“We kissed like teenagers in a corner all night and ended up having eggs Benedict at 5am in a Soho cafe.”

David added that they “absolutely” want to start a family, telling the magazine: “We hope we are blessed with children – we both come from brilliantly large families and would love to add to them at some point in the future.”
