David Cameron took time out from the General Election campaign on Saturday to attend the wedding of his younger sister.

Clare Cameron, 38, married market research executive Jeremy Fawcus in a private ceremony at St Barnabas Church in the Berkshire village of Peasemore, where Mr Cameron grew up and where his parents, Ian and Mary, still live.

The Conservative leader was accompanied by his wife, Samantha, and their daughter Nancy, six, was a bridesmaid and four-year-old son Elwen a page-boy.

Mrs Cameron is expecting the couple's fourth child in September, and her bump was clearly visible under her red knee-length dress by London-based designer Emilia Wickstead, which she wore with a vintage coat and LK Bennett shoes.

Clare is an old friend of Samantha's and it was she who introduced her elder brother to his future wife by inviting her on a family holiday to Italy.

Now working as a literacy and numeracy tutor for unemployed young people, Clare is the youngest of Mr Cameron's three siblings.

Mr Fawcus - known to friends as Jem - is the son of Major-General Graham Fawcus, a former chief of staff at the Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe.

Chief executive of market research agency Firefish, his company profile says that he relaxes "by plotting the future of qualitative research, Firefish's world domination, and listening to Motorhead".

Following the ceremony, curry was served at a reception at the nearby Old Rectory.
