Wearing a crown of daisies and an ethereal lace gown, Peaches Geldof looked every inch the fairy-tale bride.
Beaming between her father Sir Bob Geldof and her new husband Thomas Cohen, the 23-year-old is pictured as she celebrates her wedding- only five months after giving birth to the couple’s son Astala.
The young lovers married in a unique ceremony in the Kent country mansion of the bride’s father- Sir Bob Geldof – and was described by Mrs Cohen as ‘a country wedding meets Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.’

And in true, offbeat style, the couple chose their eight-month-old puppy to be their ring-bearer.
The golden retriever named Parper was decorated in a flower garland and accompanied the couple into the church.
Continuing the theme of quirkiness they also had a blue-and cream-iced wedding cake featuring an array of edible pig characters depicting the story of their romance.
Speaking about why she chose pigs, Peaches said: ‘I am obsessed with pigs- I just think they’re adorable so they had to play a part in the wedding’.
Ready for a good time: Jools Holland was among some of the guests who attended the ceremony at the St Mary Magdalene and St Lawrence Church in the village of Davington
As if one expensive gown is not enough, the TV presenter wore three custom made gowns by the Italian designer Alberta Ferretti.
And despite Sir Bob’s scraggly hair that appeared to look blonder than usual, the 60-year-old made the effort in a smart suit and flowery tie.
Having opened the doors to his country
estate, Davington Priory- Sir Bob delivered the quintessential father of
the bride speech.

In it he quipped that it was a ‘relief’ to see his daughter married off, adding: ‘It’s a beautiful day, in all senses of the word. I am happy for them. I love seeing people in love’.
The occasion was also laced with some sadness as it was same church where her father married her late mother- the TV presenter Paula Yates and it was also where she was laid to rest in 2000.
In an interview with Hello magazine, Peaches said: ‘I feel her presence all the time but especially today. Mum loved family celebrations and she would adore Tom and the fact that we’ve married here. I know she is watching over me and feeling so happy for us’.
The 23 year old who also had seven bridesmaids including her sisters Fifi, 20, Pixie, 21 and Tiger, 16 said she was glad to get married for the sake of her son.
She said: ‘I know it might seem old fashioned but I love that Astala will know that his parents are together and have taken the vows we’re taken today. I’ve married the most wonderful man who I know loves me beyond anything, through my faults’.
