When two become one! Geri Halliwell is hitched. The former Spice Girls singer and her fiancé Christian Horner said “I do” at St. Mary’s Church at Woburn Abbey in Bedfordshire, East England, on Friday, May 15, Us Weekly can confirm.
Halliwell, 42, teased about the nuptials via Instagram just hours before walking down the aisle. Going by tradition, the woman once known as Ginger Spice, shared photos of her something old, new, borrowed, and blue items.
The beautiful bride arrived to the ceremony at 4:25 p.m. local time, an insider tells Us. She wore a stunning Phillipa Lepley couture lace gown and veil, and was accompanied by her daughter Bluebell Madonna, 9. (The star had Bluebell with her ex, screenwriter Sacha Gervasi.)
In addition, the couple’s romantic backdrop included pink and white flowers and polished marble floors. A horse-drawn carriage was parked outside the church, but the pair were later whisked away in a vintage Rolls Royce.
Halliwell and Horner, 41, were feted by her former bandmates Emma Bunton and Melanie Brown, the source adds. Bunton’s sons Tate and Beau were amongst those who led Halliwell down the aisle. Victoria Beckham and Melanie Chisholm are currently out of the country. Who else may be getting down to some Spice Girls tunes at the reception though? None other than Mr. T!
In her absence, Beckham posted a sweet message to Halliwell (and a throwback pic!) via Instagram. “My beautiful friend @gerihalliwellofficial Sending u love and happiness,” she wrote. “I’m so sad I couldn’t be with you on your special day x I love u x.”
As previously reported, the happy couple went public with their romance in March 2014 after five years of friendship. They announced their engagement in November 2014. To get ready for the big day, the source tells Us that Halliwell toasted privately with her closest friends and sister Natalie at a London restaurant.
