Irish TV star Christine Bleakley got an early Christmas present with her fairy-tale wedding to  ex-Chelsea soccer star Frank Lampard.

The 36-year-old Newry native looked stunning in an elaborate Suzanne Neville creation as she got hitched at St Paul’s Church in London.

She opted for a princess-style wedding dress with elegant long lace sleeves, a plunging neckline and a dramatic full tulle skirt.

Far from saving the pics for an exclusive magazine deal, the delighted couple posed for photos outside the Knightsbridge church as they shared a kiss, cheered on by fans.

Christine and the New York City footballer were joined at the ceremony by Lampard’s two daughters from his previous relationship with Elen Rivas, Luna (10) and Isla (8), who acted as flower-girls.

Jamie Redknapp attended with his wife Louise, who looked stunning in a navy ensemble.

However, there was no sign of just-departed Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, who worked with Lampard at the London club and had been invited. 

The couple celebrated their nuptials with a reception at the lavish Arts Club in Mayfair with chart-topper Ed Sheeran booked as their wedding singer.

The ‘Wild Ireland’ presenter – who was engaged for four years – previously told how she was in no rush down the aisle with Frank, who moved to America earlier this year and is worth an estimated €30m.

“We’re both very busy. We are very ready, we’re going to do quite a small and intimate wedding,” she said.
