Robbie Williams has declared himself the "happiest man alive" after marrying American actress Ayda Field.
The 36-year-old singer serenaded his bride with a rendition of his hit song Angels during the wedding in Los Angeles on Saturday.
In an interview with Hello! magazine, Robbie revealed details of an unconventional ceremony in which the couple walked down the aisle accompanied by their eight dogs wearing collars of flowers instead of "bridesmaids".
He said: "The only thing that's traditional about the wedding is the vows. No hen party, no bachelor party, no wedding showers."
The pair tied the knot amid tight security at their Beverly Hills mansion in front of 60 guests, who were told they were going to a James Bond-themed party until moments before the ceremony started.
Robbie described his 31-year-old bride, who wore a white strapless Monique Lhuillier wedding gown with a netted silk taffeta skirt and beaded corset, as the "most beautiful girl in the world".
He said: "The setting was so magical and to be surrounded by family and close friends and then see Ayda appear looking so radiant was almost too much for me to take ... I'm the happiest man alive."
The Take That star added that his relationship with the actress made him "a better person".
