Ciara and Russell Wilson tied the knot in a lavish ceremony at the fairytale-like Peckforton Castle in England on Wednesday,  in front 100 guests including celebs Jennifer Hudson and Kelly Rowland!

Ciara looked stunning in a custom designed Roberto Cavalli dress when she wed the Seattle Seahawks player, with Lala Anthony and Kelly Rowland as some of her bridesmaids.

Russell shared the first photo from their big day to his Insta page, with the too-cute couple smiling and holding hands as they walked down the aisle.

We are The Wilsons!

According to TMZ, guests were asked to hand over their mobile phones so that no sneaky snaps would be posted to social media, so Jennifer Hudson made sure to get a few shots of her gown beforehand!

Meanwhile, Ciara was reportedly feeling a little nervous on the morning of her big day, understandably.

“Ciara has been getting ready all morning. She has all of her bridesmaids helping her. It was hard for her to sleep last night. She is so nervous but so excited for today,” a friend spilled to E! News.

Earlier in the week, the couple – who started dating in April last year, and got engaged in March this year while on vacay in Seychelles – had their rehearsal dinner at the Titanic Hotel.

“The rehearsal dinner was beautiful. Ciara and Russell couldn’t keep their hands off of each other. The love was strong in the room.

“Russell and Ciara said a few words to their guest thanking them for coming to Liverpool for this special occasion. Kelly [Rowland] and Lala [Vasquez] were helping Ciara before hand get ready and haven’t left her side,” the pal gushed.

Sadly, Ciara’s bestie Serena Williams couldn’t make it to the wedding and had to miss out on bridesmaid duties, because of the Wimbledon semi-finals.

Congrats to the newlyweds!
