The hitmaker had seven bridesmaids, including pals Hannah Lowe, Cassandra Gracey (President for Sony Music), and fashion stylist Zoe Jervoise Graham. 

After saying their ‘I do’s’, the couple shared a kiss at the altar of the stunning Gothic cathedral and the moment was captured by royal photographer Matt Porteous – who is known for his work with The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. 

Ellie then planted another kiss on her husband, 27, outside, much to the delight of the crowds of fans who had stood outside the Minster all afternoon to get a glimpse of the newlyweds. 

The Lights singer had arrived at her wedding in a blue Volkswagen camper van.

The married couple will celebrate their marriage at a festival-themed reception at the stately home Castle Howard, which is 15 miles north of York. 

According to The Sun, the blonde beauty reportedly pulled out all the stops for her big day, splashing out £20,000 on flowers alone while Bollinger champagne will be served.
