Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan look every inch the proud parents in the first photo from their daughter Chloe’s wedding day.
The personal trainer, 31, married rugby player James Haskell at a country church adorned with red roses on December 16, in front of her famous parents and TV presenter Zoe Hardman and rugby star Paul Doran Jones.
Chloe told Hello magazine her father was “super excited” to be included in the wedding, driving her to church in his black Jaguar and walking her down the aisle.
She continued: “I’m a daddy’s girl and he was so looking forward to driving me to church – a tribute to our father-and-daughter road trips.
“He’s just like me, sentimental and nostalgic. I even caught him watching the film Father Of The Bride.”
Richard told the magazine that he believes James will make “a great husband and us a great son-in-law – and friend”.
Judy added: “James had me from ‘hello’. He walked into our house for the first time, so toweringly tall he blocked out the light. I thought: ‘Hmm… he’s impressive.’ But far more than that, he is a sweet and lovely man. I couldn’t be happier Chloe has married him.”
Chloe said she had tears running down her cheeks during the ceremony, for which she wore a white Pronovias gown.
She said the day was “incredible” and something she’s “dreamt of since I was a little girl”.
Recalling the moment she saw James at the end of the aisle, Chloe revealed she “immediately felt tears streaming down my face”.
James said he was also filled with emotion at the ceremony, adding that “the moment she looked at me, I got a tingle in my stomach and couldn’t stop smiling”.
The full interview is in Hello, out now.
