Olympic swimmer Rebecca Adlington and her partner Andy Parsons have married, five months after welcoming their son Albie. 

The happy couple tied the knot at Cheshire's Scarlet Hall on Saturday 28th August with Rebecca, who had not even publicly confirmed their engagement, revealing the news on her Instagram a week later. 

She captioned the snap: "Ahhh we're married!!! We had the best weekend ever. So much fun, happiness, laughter and long over due catch ups with friends and family. I apologise now for all the wedding spam that's coming."

Rebecca, 32, walked down the aisle accompanied by her father Steve and her flower girl and ring-bearer, six year old daughter Summer, who she has from her first marriage to Harry Needs.

Beautiful bride Rebecca wore a gorgeous bespoke white gown with sheer sleeves by Turkish designer Zeynep Katral and her new husband looked dapper in a dark blue suit with a white shirt and baby blue tie. 

Andy couldn't hold back his emotions as Rebecca entered the ceremony to the sound of Tom Odell's 'Grow Old With Me' soundtrack.

She told Hello magazine, "We chose all the other music together, but I wanted to keep one little thing that was a surprise for him. He kept trying to get it out of me, but I wouldn't break."

After exchanging vows, the couple celebrated at a reception with 80 guests, including Olympic stars Steve Parry, Caitlin McClatchley and Fran Halsall.

Rebecca and Andy, who first met three and a half years ago via the online dating app Bumble, planned their dream wedding in just four months after coming across the stunning venue while looking for holiday destinations. Now that's impressive!
