US Vice-President Mike Pence added a new string to his bow as he officially performed the wedding of Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin to Scottish actress Louise Linton at the weekend.

US President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump were among the guests as Mr Pence acted as wedding celebrant for the vows at the Andrew W Mellon Auditorium in Washington.

Mrs Trump wore a pink dress while the president wore a tuxedo.

Millionaire Mr Mnuchin (54) worked for the Goldman Sachs investment firm for nearly two decades before founding a hedge fund.

He also ran a company that invested in Hollywood movies and was finance chairman of Mr Trump's presidential campaign.

Edinburgh-born Ms Linton (36), has appeared in movies including 'Cabin Fever', and TV shows such as 'CSI: NY'.
