In the busy morning leading up to the wedding, many grooms could be forgiven for nervously counting down the hours.
But Jamie Lomas made sure he stayed relaxed in the run-up to his nuptials with Kym Marsh yesterday (Sunday) as he played with his son Billy.
The former Hollyoaks actor, 32, was spotted having a laugh with his six-year-old son in the car park of the Nunsmere Hall Hotel in Cheshire.

Later that day, Jamie and Kym are believed to have tied the knot in front of dozens of celebrity guests from the soap world, with photos being taken as part of an exclusive magazine deal.
Among the guests spotted arriving at the upmarket hotel were Kym's Coronation Street co-stars Brooke Vincent and Catherine Tyldesley and Jamie's former Hollyoaks co-stars Kieron Richardson, Rachel Shenton and Nico Mirallegro.
According to the actors' Tweets, Michelle Keegan, Paula Lane, Charlie Condou and Helen Flanagan were also due to attend the party.

On Friday, Kym tweeted: Work finished now for a few weeks! Hair done by @VincentAllenby @tsorbiehair one hell of a weekend ahead!!! Woohoooooooo! X.
In the wedding party were Jamie's sisters, Emmerdale actress Charley Webb and make-up artist Cassie Lomas and Kym's daughter Emily from a previous relationship.
In July, the former Hear'Say singer enjoyed a hen weekend in Marbella, Spain.

And last week, she enjoyed another hen on her home turf with a host of her Coronation Street co-stars in attendance.
Their wedding plans comes after a difficult start to the year for the couple, who have been dating since summer 2008.
In March, Kym admitted things had been 'difficult' when Jamie went out to Los Angeles for several months in an attempt to launch a Hollywood career.

And in April, Jamie denied tabloid claims that he shared a drunken kiss with carer Katie Moores on a night out in Leeds.
The pair got engaged over Christmas 2009 and welcomed their daughter Polly together in March last year.
Aside from their daughter Polly, Kym is also mother to Emily, 14, and David, 17, with ex-boyfriend Dave Cunliffe.
Jamie also has six-year-old Billy from his previous relationship with Hayley Lever.
Kym was previously married to EastEnders actor Jack Ryder from 2002 until 2008 – splitting five months before she met Jamie.
