The presenter of Classic FM Revision Hour married Caspar Jopling at York Minster at the weekend with the accompaniment of beautiful music.
Ellie Goulding married her art dealer boyfriend Caspar Jopling last Saturday (31), in a lavish ceremony at York Minster.
As well as a reported four dress changes (yep, four), the Classic FM Revision Hour presenter invited a plethora of royals and A-listers (oh hey, Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom and Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie) to her big day, along with some fine musicians.
Before the big day, there were reports of rumours that producer Diplo would be responsible for entertainment at Ellie’s reception – after he “owed her one”.
Among an array of wonderful guests on the actual day, the 12 ensemble, The Choir of Royal Holloway provided entertainment – and there was also music by Goulding’s favourite composer, Ola Gjeilo, by all accounts.
With that, we say great choice – and congratulations on your beautiful big day, Ellie!
The choir had the pleasure of singing at the wedding of @elliegoulding and Caspar Jopling this weekend. We hope you both enjoyed your special day, wishing you a long and happy marriage! 👰🏼🤵🏻— Royal Holloway Choir (@RHULChapelChoir) September 2, 2019
