Spice Girl Geri Halliwell weds Formula One boss Christian Horner
Just call her Married Spice: Geri Halliwell has tied the knot.
The former Spice Girl wed Formula One racing team boss Christian Horner in England on Friday, People reported.
Halliwell, 42, and Horner, 41, said “I Do” at Woburn Abbey in Bedfordshire. She arrived at the venue in a Rolls-Royce, while he rolled up in a vintage 1965 Aston Martin, the mag said. We’d expect nothing less from a car guy.
Ginger Spice wore a voluminous gown with lace sleeves, a veil with a traditional blusher and carried a pink-and-white bouquet, as seen in photos taken by the Associated Press and others published in the U.K.'s Mirror.
The couple also shared an intimate kiss as husband and wife in front of cameras when they stepped out together after the ceremony.
Halliwell’s former bandmate Emma Bunton -- that’s Baby Spice -- was also in attendance and her two sons, Tate and Beau, served as page boys.
On Friday, the singer shared snapshots of her something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue on Instagram: Vintage earrings, couture lace in her new gown, a diamond bracelet and her 9-year-old daughter Bluebell, whome she signified with a blue ribbon, respectively.
Victoria Beckham, a.k.a. Posh, couldn’t make it to the nuptials but sent her well-wishes to the bride on Twitter.
”. @GeriHalliwell Sending u love and happiness.Im so sad I couldn’t be with you on your special day x I love u x,” the designer wrote.
Melanie Brown, a.k.a. Scary Spice Mel B, also tweeted her support in lieu of her attendance.
"@GeriHalliwell wishing you the most beautiful special day of your life,I love you xxxx,” she wrote.
Halliwell and Horner revealed their engagement in November with a traditional newspaper announcement in the Times of London. She also publicized the news on Twitter.
It’s the first marriage for the former pop star. The singer-turned-designer was previously engaged to Italian yacht company owner Fabrizio Politi in 2009 and had Bluebell with her ex, director Sacha Gervasi.
Halliwell has been linked to Horner, the principal of the Infiniti Red Bull team, since January 2014, but the pair is said to have been friends since 2009, according to previous reports.
