Victoria is in Singapore for a press tour of her latest collection, Mel C was busy judging the Asia’s Got Talent final, and Mel B is believed to have been in Los Angeles.

The two Mels have yet to tweet Geri on her wedding day.

Geri looked incredible in a long-sleeved lace couture gown, reminiscent of the one Kate Middleton wore to wed Prince William, from Phillipa Lepley, as she became Mrs Horner.

The stunning singer teamed the dress with a long veil as she arrived at St Mary’s Church in Woburn for the ceremony.

Among her bridal party was Geri’s nine-year-old daughter Bluebell, and Emma’s two sons Tate and Beau, who looked adorable as little page boys.

After Geri and Christian said their vows, they posed outside the church for their first kiss as a married couple.
