Jessica Ennis swapped Olympic rings for a wedding ring today when she married her long-term partner. Applause rang out as she arrived to marry lucky fiance Andy Hill at a church in the Peak District, near her hometown Sheffield. The bride wore a V-necked, sleeveless ivory silk gown with a ruffled tulle skirt and a full-length veil and carried a small posy of cream and pale pink roses. Mr Hill, a construction site manager, wore a dark grey morning suit, with a pink tie and handkerchief.
Around 100 guests gathered for the hour-long service at the 14th Century Church of St Michael and All Angels, in Hathersage. Jessica arrived with her parents for the ceremony, which was conducted by the Revd Katie Tupling, the priest-in-charge of St Michael’s. After the service, the newlyweds both smiled broadly as they posed for photographers before heading off for the reception.
