Here comes the groom! Marvin gives fans a thumbs up as he heads to Blenheim Palace to wed fiancée Rochelle Wiseman
After months of excited preparations, The Saturdays singer Rochelle Wiseman has finally walked down the aisle to marry her JLS fiancé, Marvin Humes.
The couple tied the knot on Friday in spectacular style at the opulent Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire. Several areas of the grand house were closed to the public to ensure absolute privacy for the nuptials and a large marquee could be seen on the lawn behind the mansion.
In the hours before the celebration, Rochelle’s bandmates Mollie King, Frankie Sandford, Vanessa White and newlywed Una Healy were spotted arriving at a nearby hotel. Sporting black tracksuits with ‘bridesmaid’ emblazoned on the back in crystals, the girls looked excited to have such a special part to play in their friend’s big day. The JLS boys were also present and obviously proud to be supporting Marvin; they also donned black and white tracksuits with their names and ‘groomsman’ embroidered on the front.
Although all the details from the day are yet to emerge, we know the couple enlisted the expert help of wedding planner Mark Niemierko and opted for an oh-so-stylish monochrome theme. While the maids wore black satin gowns and the groomsmen sported traditional tuxes, the bride and groom took centre stage in white. Rochelle looked stunning in a Vera Wang fishtail gown from the designer’s 2012 collection (see Rochelle’s Vera Wang gown here) while Marvin looked suave wearing a white Dolce & Gabbana tux jacket.
Wedding guests including Olly Murs, Alexandra Burke, One Direction’s Harry Styles, footballer Paul Ince, and X Factor star Marcus Collins were also seen merrily returning to a nearby hotel after the celebrations.
Introducing Mr and Mrs Humes. The happy couple spotted for the first time after their marriage
On Saturday morning Mr and Mrs Humes made their first appearance as husband and wife. Obviously thrilled with their new married status, Rochelle and Marvin gave reporters a little glimpse of their glittering wedding rings. Thanking fans for their good wishes, Rochelle took to Twitter writing, “Yesterday was literally the best day of my whole life. I’m so happy to have shared it with every1 I love my friends and family are priceless… Me and Marvin feel so blessed I felt like a princess all day :-).” A few minutes later she followed up with, “You can now call me Mrs Humes no longer a Wiseman :-).”
After a day to recover from all the celebrations, Rochelle and Marvin jetted off on honeymoon on Sunday. Glowing with happiness, Rochelle looked radiant in an aqua vest top and white tracksuit with the words “Mrs Humes” sparkling on the back.
Congratulations Mr and Mrs Humes!
