They 1, 2 stepped down the aisle! Ciara has officially married her fiance, Russell Wilson.

The singer, 30, exchanged vows with the NFL hunk, 27, in an intimate ceremony at the 19th-century Peckforton Castle in Liverpool, England, on Wednesday, July 6. E! News reported that the bride wore a custom-design gown by Roberto Cavalli that was crafted by creative director Peter Dundas.

According to TMZ, all guests were required to hand over electronic devices. Prior to the ceremony Ciara’s pal Jennifer Hudson excitedly took to Instagram to share a few photos of herself en route to the nuptials.

“I got the walking down the stairs part in this dress ! Now I really gotta figure out how to walk back up the stairs ! Hudson wrote, alongside one snapshot of herself in a bright peach gown by Christian Siriano.

Other stars to attend the wedding on Wednesday included Kelly Rowland. Serena Williams, who was one of Ciara’s bridesmaids, was unable to make the ceremony as she continues to compete in the Wimbledon tournament.  

Rumblings of Ciara and Wilson’s wedding began on Tuesday, after it was reported that the gorgeous pair had celebrated their rehearsal dinner at the Titanic Hotel. For the friends and family-focused occasion, Ciara stunned in a floor-length white dress, while Wilson wore a head-to-toe black suit.
