Rio And Kate Ferdinand Release First Wedding Photo

Ex-footballer Rio Ferdinand has released the first photo of his wedding to Kate Wright, following a three-day celebration in Turkey.

The celebrity couple tied the knot on Friday (Sept 27th) in Marmaris at the luxurious D Maris Bay hotel.

The loved-up pair unveiled their first official photo in OK! magazine earlier this week, with the bride showing off her stunning ivory, lace fishtail gown by Berta and the ex-footballer sporting a dapper three-piece suit.

OK! is likely to feature more exclusive snaps from the long-awaited wedding, but this hasn’t stopped the newlyweds sharing some personal images of their romantic weekend on their social media accounts.

Former TOWIE star Kate Wright, who has since changed her Instagram name to Kate Ferdinand, posted a photo of her and her new hubby in front of a huge array of white balloons before their wedding brunch at Nusr-Et steakhouse.

Famous Turkish chef Nusret Gokce, who owns the restaurant, was on hand to cook and serve the famous couple and their friends.

This isn’t Rio’s first time down the aisle, as he previously wed Rebecca Ellison ten years ago. Rebecca tragically passed away from breast cancer in 2015 at the age of 34, leaving behind the couple’s three children, Lorenz, Tate, and Tia.

The 40-year-old footballer claimed meeting Kate was ‘fate’ after losing his first wife, and admitted their wedding day was very emotional.

“I cried as soon as the day started. Seeing Tia walk up the aisle before Kate set me off. It was just so emotional,” the football pundit revealed.

Details of their nuptials will, no doubt, emerge over the following weeks, but we’re sure they had hours of entertainment lined up for their guests.
