EastEnders actor Danny Dyer was forced to find a new best man for his wedding at the last minute, after his brother Tony had to miss the ceremony because his own wife was in labour.

Danny Dyer has opened up about his love for new wife Joanne Mas.

The 39-year-old EastEnders actor wed last weekend (03Sep16) in an intimate ceremony in Hampshire, England, after Joanne popped the question on Valentine's Day last year (15).

Pictures of the couple's big day have been published in Hello! magazine, with Danny telling the publication: "To be standing here with the girl I grew up with - looking so beautiful in her wedding dress - that is a lovely thing.

"Jo is my best girl - the love of my life. Without her, I would be nothing."

As a nod to her Spanish heritage, Joanne opted for a flamenco-style wedding dress, teamed with a cathedral length veil and a bouquet shaped like a fan.

Danny complemented his bride's ensemble by wearing a red waistcoat under his grey suit.

Joanne, also 39, told Hello! of the ceremony: "I have dreamed about this day my whole life and I just wanted it to be perfect."

Things didn't go exactly to plan, however, as Danny was forced to find a new best man at the last minute after his brother Tony had to miss the ceremony because his own wife was giving birth to twins.

Danny's sister Kayleigh stepped in to the role, as the actor's "best woman".

The couple's children also played vital parts in the wedding, with 19-year-old daughter Dani acting as her mother's maid of honour, while nine-year-old Sunnie was bridesmaid and two-year-old Arty was page boy.

Danny's EastEnders co-star Kellie Bright, who plays his character Mick Carter's wife Linda, was also present for the wedding, and told Hello!: "I am very, very happy to be part of their day. I couldn't be more honoured."
