Ex-Hollyoaks actress Ali Bastian has revealed she's married her actor boyfriend David O’Mahoney at Old Marylebone Town Hall.
The actress, who is currently playing Becky Clarke in Doctors, wore a stunning off-the-shoulder gown, revealed in exclusive pictures released by OK! Magazine.
Ali’s new husband looked dapper in a dark blue suit and pink tie and the happy couple were pictured in front of a stunning flower wall alongside Westlife singer Kian Egan and his wife, fellow ex-Hollyoaker Jodi Albert.
‘The whole day just felt magical,’ Ali told the magazine. ‘It was everything I dreamed of and more. It really was the happiest day of my life.’
While they only revealed the news now, the ceremony took place three weeks ago and featured a choir that sang when Ali walked down the aisle. Actress Carley Stenson, another one of Ali’s former Hollyoaks co-stars, was one of the singers involved.
‘Ali took my breath away,’ said David. ‘She looked absolutely stunning, so incredibly gorgeous. I’m very grateful to Ali for being my perfect partner. So the last person I thanked was Ali – I’m so proud, grateful and in love with her. It was very emotional to declare that in front of a room full of people.’
Ali revealed that the couple were ‘on the edge of tears’ during the ceremony, and that they held each other’s hands tightly as they said their vows.
Ali and David announced their engagement last April, when David touchingly revealed that he had had his fiancée’s poster on his wall when he was at university. He told OK! at the time that he was ‘99.99 per cent sure that she’d say yes, but there was still a scary but exciting feeling’.
Ali and David held their reception at the Star & Garter in Richmond, which has a Victorian ballroom that overlooks the Thames.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
