Food writer Ella Woodward has married her partner Matthew in a beach ceremony in Mustique.

The healthy eating guru, who has 824,000 followers on Instagram, tied the knot in a low key ceremony on the Carribean island.

The bride, who promptly updated her profile on Ella Mills on Instagram, looked relaxed and radiant at the beachside setting.

Ella follows a gluten-free, vegetarian diet, but she said her guests would be served meat, potatoes and fish.

She explained: "It wouldn't be fair on Matt to say: 'Okay, guys, we're doing a wheat-free vegetarian wedding - woohoo!'"

Before the wedding, Ella said she would be inviting her father - former Northern Ireland secretary Shaun Woodward - and his new boyfriend to her spring wedding.

She said she was thrilled her father had found happiness with Luke Redgrave, grandson of the actor Sir Michael Redgrave.

Her parents, Mr Woodward and Camilla Sainsbury, announced their split late last year after 28 years of marriage.

She said: "Obviously it's sad that (my parents) have split up, and not one of the easiest things to deal with, but my siblings and I feel that even if the transition is difficult, everyone will end up happier."

The 24-year-old added: "Dad is happy. And to be honest that's fundamentally what matters. If this is what he wants in his life, then good for me."

She continued: "Honestly, I have been able to accept my father's new relationship because you get to that point with your parents that you realise it's their life, not yours.

"I have my life. I have Matt. I have my work, which I love, and I have my friends. So as long as my mum is okay, which she absolutely is, and my dad is okay, to be honest, it's fine."

Ella's groom is Matthew Mills, the son of former culture secretary Tessa Jowell and lawyer David Mills.
