Mark and Michelle's Strictly themed bash; WEDDING OF THE, ER, WEEK; NEWLYWEDS WALTZ TO RECEPTION; EXCLUSIVE.
Byline: Simon Boyle
BRIDE Michelle Keegan and groom Mark Wright will enjoy a Strictlystyle wedding reception this evening.
The golden couple will perform their first dance in front of guests to a live song from one of the BBC show's vocalists.
And professional dancers from Strictly, including Mark's partner from last year's show Karen Hauer, will be part of the performance.
Essex boy Mark, 28, who spent his last day as a bachelor yesterday playing a very lively round of golf with his dad, used his contacts from the show to draft in the entertainment at the reception at the 16th century Hengrave Hall estate in Suffolk.
The Strictly dance is just one theme during today's wedding which the couple planned to reflect their relationship.
Another idea is a North-Southinspired wedding breakfast with former Corrie actress Michelle, 27, and her Manchester family tucking into fish, chips and mushy peas while TOWIE star Mark's crowd devour pie and mash.
Guests including Corrie star Brooke Vincent, 22, at the church ceremony in Bury St Edmunds this afternoon are subject to a strict no-photo rule to prevent pictures leaking out and spoiling a six-figure deal with a glossy magazine.
The festivities begin at 1pm when Mark will turn up flanked by nine groomsmen including his brother Josh who is best man. Shunning the classic Wedding March, Michelle will walk down the aisle to a track called From This Moment On by American country and western star Shania Twain.
Later, guests will be ferried to Hengrave Hall for the reception in a specially-constructed marquee decked out in pure white.
Other entertainment will include a fairground carousel, candy cart and cocktails from professional bartenders.
