What a beautiful bride! Lily Allen looks lovely in lace in vintage inspired gown as she weds Sam Cooper


Mrs Cooper: Lily Allen was smiling broadly as she emerged from the church with her new husband Sam Cooper

Leaving the church with her new husband, Lily Allen couldn't have looked happier today.

As she made her way to the vintage Bentley car the 26-year-old singer had a broad smile on her face as Sam Cooper placed a protective arm around her waist.

The couple were grinning from ear to ear savouring their first few moments as husband and wife.

The newlyweds made their way to their vintage Bentley and Lily wave to her fans.

She even obliged many of them by posing for pictures before getting into the car to drive away with her new husband.

Earlier, Lily had looked radiant as she arrived at St James church in Cranham giving fans a first glimpse of her Chanel wedding dress.

As she greeted crowds of her fans gathering outside the church she looked stunning in the Delphine Manivet creation which appeared to have taken inspiration from the styles of 1920s.

While the lace dress nipped in her waist it also boasted a fishtail skirt and Lily was wearing an elaborate lace headdress with a flower detail on the side of her veil.

The bodice of the dress was covered with lace detail with sleeves in a similar style to that worn by the Duchess of Cambridge in April.

In her hands Lily carried an small and delicate rose bouquet which mixed cream, peach and baby blue flowers together.

Yesterday the singer had looked radiant as she arrived at St James the Great church in Cranham, Gloucestershire, for some final preparations before her big day.

Wearing a pretty blue dress, beige cardigan and green wedges, Lily clutched a folder as she made her way into the venue.

Painter and decorator Sam, meanwhile, went for a more laid-back look in jeans, a black jumper and brown shoes.

The couple were met at the venue by Lily's father Keith Allen, who entertained his family with a song on the ukulele, before they did a run-through in the church with their vicar.

Lily and Sam are thought to be going for a traditional English wedding, judging by their save-the-date card sent earlier this year which featured a mock-up of the couple on the back of a tractor.

Beautiful bridesmaids: Lily had a number of bridesmaids including some young girls who were dressed in white

The couple's wedding invitation was also revealed - a simple design featuring a pencil drawing of the church on the front and a blue ribbon down the side.

It is understood that the newlyweds will then throw a lavish reception for 300 in the garden of Lily’s country bolthole near Stroud.

The road which runs past the tiny church and surrounding public footpaths will be closed by police from 7.30am to around 1pm, with only the wedding party, guests and residents allowed through.

One resident said the couple are hoping to enjoy an English country wedding.

‘She is very generously going to use the village choir,’ she said.

‘She wants to have a typical village wedding. She is very sweet.

'She has come to the village and is asking for help where she needs it. We hope it goes well.’

And it seems Lily was more than a little excited about her big day.

Asked on Twitter by Claudia Winkleman how she was feeling, Lily tweeted back: 'I'm GREAT, I'm getting MARRIED EEEEEK !!!!!'

Lily and Sam have been together since July 2009 but they've been friends for years.
In the past Lily has described Sam as the "love of her life, saying: 'Sam treats me differently. He's told me he'll look after me forever.

'That's what I've always wanted - someone to look after me.

'We've never had one argument and there's nothing about him that annoys me.'
