TV presenter Amanda Byram proved the force is strong with her, as she chose a 'Star Wars'-themed cake for her wedding.

The couple's 'Star Wars' cake was made entirely of cheese and was topped with Lego figures of Hans Solo and Princess Leia.

The former model also went one step further in proving her love for digital producer Julian Okines - by marrying him twice.

The couple said their first 'I dos' during an intimate ceremony at London's Oriental Mandarin Hotel.

Celebrity guests included radio presenter Fearne Cotton, TV presenter Laura Whitmore, Stereophonics lead singer Kelly Jones and his wife, as well as model Yvonne Connolly.

Former Radio 1 DJ Cotton compiled their music playlist for the reception.

Dublin-born Byram told 'Hello!' magazine she had nearly given up her search for true love. "We both came into this relationship later in our lives and we have both made mistakes. But we came into this when it was really right. We feel lucky and blessed."

The 42-year-old's second wedding was a beach blessing in the Maldives.
