Christine Bleakley was clearly on cloud nine when she stepped out from The Arts Club in London with her new husband Frank Lampard on Monday. Having tied the knot the day before, the TV presenter naturally opted for an elegant knee-length dress in white. She matched the figure-hugging number with a pair of chic heels, a gold handbag and, of course, her sparkling wedding band, which sat comfortably alongside her engagement ring. Her beautiful bouquet was the finishing accessory.

New hubby Frank, meanwhile, was dapper in a dark brown blazer jacket and a navy shirt, teamed with tailored trousers and a silk tie.
The couple are thought to have stayed overnight at the exclusive Arts Club hotel on Sunday night after celebrating their wedding reception there following their wonderful winter ceremony St Paul’s Church in Knightsbridge. It was an emotional day for all, not least the football star groom.

Among the celebrity guests was Piers Morgan, who told his co-host Susanna Reid that Frank was “very tearful in his speech. It was very moving.”
He also revealed that the sportsman’s two daughters gave emotional tributes in the ceremony and at the reception. Piers recalled: “I said a few words, I was asked to because I was there when they met at the Pride of Britain Awards with Frank and Pietersen.”
