However, their wedding took place over three days. The couple and their guests indulged in spa treatments and rounds of golf at the stately home before the event, before the ceremony and reception, which took place in a marquee erected in the grounds of the stately home.
But there was nothing grand in the food, which reportedly included fish and chips, curry and trifle. The guests also gorged on a spectacular seven-tier £20,000 cake, but only once a stepladder had been found so it could be cut.
Gary Barlow however added some class to the day, playing the paino at the reception. A spectacular fireworks display also ended the evening, as a fleet of Rolls-Royces stood by to ferry guests to other hotels.
The wedding was said to cost around £500,000 to £1million but the couple got most of their money back from OK! Magazine, which paid £800,000 for photo rights.
