Celebrity guests included Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom, Sienna Miller and her partner Lucas Zwirner and James Blunt and his wife Sofia Wellesley.

The singer and her new husband announced their plans to marry in August last year, using a formal notice in The Times newspaper.

Goulding performed at the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's wedding party in 2011 and, with Jopling, was a guest at Princess Eugenie's marriage last October.

The groom (27) gave a thumbs-up to waiting guests on his arrival.

He was cheered by the crowds and greeted with an announcement by York's town crier.

After the wedding was formally announced last year, Goulding (32) said she was looking forward to being a "loved-up wife".

Jopling proclaimed his love for the singer on social media earlier this year saying: "I get to spend the rest of my life with this extraordinary and beautiful person."
