Ever the gentleman, Nick gave his blazer to Karen as they stood outside, where Karen was seen enjoying a drink.

The actress looked sensational for the ceremony, where her flame-haired locks were styled into loose waves.  

According to reports, Nick arrived at the venue via a speedboat, while his bride chartered a yacht, The Spirit of Fortitude, to transport family and friends to the afternoon ceremony. 

A source told The Sun that ‘nobody knew’ that it was going on, with security guards blocking access to the nineteenth-century country house.
