Gogglebox star Chris Steed marries partner Tony Butland in 'magical' wedding ceremony

Channel 4 star's big day coincided with Pride celebrations in London

Gogglebox favourite Chris Steed has officially tied the knot with his partner Tony Butland in a 'magical' wedding ceremony with both grooms looking seriously stylish in contrasting suits.

The wedding featured diva-themed tables for the guests that centred around icons such as Shirley Bassey, Liza Minnelli, Bette Midler and Julie Andrews, according to the Daily Mail.

Barbara Streisand was the name on the top table, and the couple are reported to have had their first dance to the songstress' duet with Bryan Adams "I Finally Found Someone".

"There was so much love in the room - everything went perfectly and I am the happiest man alive," 41-year-old Chris said.

"From the moment we woke up to when we said goodbye to the last guests in the early hours everyone said they'd never felt such energy at a wedding before."

The couple announced their engagement in October 2015, when hairdresser Chris said 'yes' to Tony on a romantic trip to Paris.

The love up pair shared a photo of themselves toasting their nuptials with champagne on top of the Effiel Tower, with Chris proudly displaying his sparkling engagement ring.

"It's official... I can't sing Beyonce anymore thanks to Tony Butland," the Channel 4 star wrote on Twitter at the time.

Steed has been busy preparing for the wedding in the last week, and revealed that he had undergone a hair transplant, his third reported procedure in five years, in the days leading up to the nuptials.

"I wanted to look gorgeous when I walk down the aisle," he told the Irish Daily Mirror.

"Lots of men are happy to shave their heads to cover it up, like my fiancé Tony.

Having these hair transplants has ensured that I can have great hair myself."

The beauty procedure involved 4,000 hairs being grafted on to the back and side of his head, and cost the famous channel-hopper over €9,000 to have done.

The hairstylist has previously said that his wedding would be a private affair, however he joked that that would only be the case "unless OK Magazine decide to do a photo feature".

Some viewers of the Channel 4 show are more acquainted with the groom and his ex-boyfriend Stephen Webb, whom he appears alongside in the hit series.

The pair were an item when they began filming for the show in 2013, however they decided to continue appearing on the couch as friends when their romantic relationship dissolved after the first season.
