Dermot O’Leary marries Dee Koppang | Jamie Tuohy

After 10 years together, Dermot Oโ€™Leary married Dee Koppang yesterday in a ceremony which was billed as โ€˜intimateโ€™, but yet was filled with the coupleโ€™s celebrity friends.

The bride looked stunning in a cream silk gown with lace detailing and as she kissed her groom outside St. Maryโ€™s Church in Chiddingstone, Dermot looked dapper in a three-piece midnight blue suit.

Before the ceremony, Dermot was seen driving his own vintage Mercedes wedding car and arrived early to the church, so as to have a drink at the local pub before tying the knot, in true Irish style!

Shortly before entering the church, Dermot spoke to the locals who had gathered for a glimpse of the star and he posed for the waiting media, who had arrived en masse for the celebrity wedding.

Dermotโ€™s producer and director bride, Dee arrived shortly after, flanked by her bridesmaids who looked pretty in light blue lace dresses. The ceremony, which was a traditional Irish Catholic ceremony, was followed by a reception at the nearby 15th century Chiddingstone Castle.

Dermot and Dee were joined by a host of celebrity friends for the nuptials which stipulated a dress code of โ€œlounge suits and seasonal glamour.โ€ Caroline Flack was very, shall we say,ย liberalย with the dress code, as she turned up to the wedding in her ubiquitous shorts and blazer combo, looking gorgeous, albeit a tad underdressed for such an event.

Holly Willoughby and herย Celeb Juiceย co-stars Leigh Francis and Fearne Cotton were all in attendance, as was actor James Cordon and adventurer Bear Grylls. Newly-weds Chris Oโ€™Dowd and Dawn Porter also turned up, looking chic and sophisticated in matching monochrome outfits.

Dermot had previously spoken out about his desire to settle down and become a married man, but confessed that he wouldnโ€™t be leaving behind crazy party days, because there simply werenโ€™t any. He said,

โ€œThereโ€™s no sort of raucous bachelor days to put behind me when we get married. I love my girlfriend and the woman that will be my wife and we are really relaxed with each other.โ€
