Katharine’s big day came after she took to Instagram to pay a sweet tribute to now-husband David, as at the time they were just hours away from tying the knot.

In her pre-wedding post, Katharine shared a clip of her cover of the Wizard of Oz classic Somewhere Over The Rainbow, as she told fans it was released 13 years to the day before her wedding,

The caption read: ‘Exactly 13 years ago today my very first single, Somewhere Over The Rainbow, was released right after Idol. 

‘Today… I’m marrying the man who produced it. Life is full of beautiful coincidences, isn’t it? Thank you for taking me over the rainbow, David. ❤️’

Hours before the ceremony, the St. Yeghiche Armenian Apostolic Church was decorated with flowers. The venue was originally built in 1867 as St. Peter’s Anglican Church, and is now the parish church for Kensington. 

DailyMail.com learned that the couple’s nuptials were expected to take place in London this weekend and will be a small, intimate celebration with around 80 guests.  

But Katharine’s latest post has now confirmed the big day is mere hours away, though the location of the occasion is yet to be revealed.

‘It won’t be a big showbiz wedding like his previous nuptials. This one is more focused on their respective families and very close friends,’ said an insider. 

David’s daughters Sara and Erin Foster – whom he had with Rebecca Dyer – are also in London for the big day as they were spotted leaving the Dorchester Hotel earlier this week.

The happy couple picked up their 90-day marriage license in Beverly Hills in mid May, hinting that the nuptials were on the horizon.

Katharine has been enjoying a string of festivities ahead of her wedding to David, including a romantic getaway to Mykonos. 

And on the day she was set to the tie the knot, the star joined her family and friends on a sightseeing bus trip around the capital.

Katharine was married to actor Nick Cokas, 54, in February 2008 after three years together. 

The star was seen kissing her married Smash director Michael Morris while she was still with her husband in October 2013.

She filed for divorce in May 2014, with her spokesperson confirming the couple had quietly separated a year previously after four years of marriage.

Katharine then dated her Scorpion co-star Elyes Gabel, 36, for two years.

She and David were first linked in May 2017, and confirmed their engagement in June 2018 after the producer popped the question on the Italian island of Capri. 

David has been married four times and has five daughters and seven grandchildren.

He was first married in 1972 to singer B.J Cook and the couple had one daughter, Amy, before divorcing after just under 10 years of marriage.

David married his second wife Rebecca Dyer in 1982 and they had three daughters, Sara, Erin and Jordan. They ended their marriage after four years in 1986.

Moving onto his third marriage, the record mogul wed actress Linda Thompson in 1991 and they collaborated on songs together throughout their marriage – but ended things in 2005.

During this marriage, David was step-father to Linda’s sons with Caitlyn Jenner, Brody and Brandon, who grew up living in his home in Malibu.

Upon David’s fourth marriage, he wed Dutch model Yolanda Hadid – mother to stunning supermodel sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid.

After a nine year relationship and four years of marriage, David and the Real Housewives of Beverley Hills star called it quits in 2015.

David had his first daughter, Allison, when he was just 20 and was forced to put her up for adoption before the pair reconciled when she was 30.
