Michelle Keegan weds her Mr Right

Former Coronation Street star Michelle Keegan has married her Mr Right.

Keegan wed Mark Wright - who shot to fame on The Only Way Is Essex - at a celebrity-packed ceremony in Suffolk.

The bride arrived at St Mary's Church, in Bury St Edmunds, in a 1976 white Rolls-Royce b ut well-wishers were unable to catch a glimpse of her dress as she was shielded by security guards with large umbrellas. The couple are thought to have signed a deal with a magazine for coverage of their big day.

Brooke Vincent, Antony Cotton and Sacha Parkinson were among Keegan's former Coronation Street colleagues who attended the ceremony.

Towie stars who joined the couple for their special day included James Argent and Lydia Bright.

Emmerdale actor Kelvin Fletcher was another famous face seen arriving at the ceremony.

Bridesmaids were thought to include Wright's sisters Jessica and Natalya, Keegan's stepsister Nichola, her cousins Gemma, Katy and Lauren, and her best friend Becky Hatch.

Street star Catherine Tyldesley was unable to attend but sent the couple her best wishes in a tweet wishing them "an awesome day", adding: "Sorry we can't be there. So much love to you both."

Groom-to-be Wright hinted that he had not managed to get in an early night ahead of the wedding when he tweeted about his plans to watch James D eGale's IBF super-middleweight belt fight.

On Friday he tweeted: "Up late the night before a v big day for me. It's going to be worth it though. This Saturday @SkySportsBoxing come on the boy !! ."

DeGale beat Andre Dirrell on points.

Keegan was spotted making last-minute preparations in Manchester, where she showed off what looked like a fresh tan while shopping, and later joined Wright and her father for lunch.

The couple have been celebrating their upcoming nuptials in recent weeks with a string of hen and stag dos, which saw Keegan, 27, take a group of friends away to Dubai where her fiance proposed to her, while Wright, 28, and his pals hit Las Vegas for their party.

Keegan and Wright announced their engagement in September 2013, nine months after they started dating.

Keegan had previously been engaged to The Wanted singer Max George, while Wright had planned to marry his former Towie co-star Lauren Goodger.
