HELLO! is thrilled to present the photo album the world has been waiting to see, and the true story of the wedding of Robbie Williams and Ayda Field.
This week's issue, number 1136, has all the details of the lavish nuptials - which took place last Saturday, during a fun-filled celebration at Robbie’s Los Angeles home.
The love-struck pair broke their wedding news to HELLO! in an exclusive interview - their first ever as a couple - at their Beverly Hills mansion on the eve of their big day, which is presented over 35 glossy pages of Britain’s best-loved celebrity magazine.

With Robbie being Britain’s biggest pop star, the marriage was never going to be a conventional affair, and HELLO! reveals for the first time what really happened at the showbiz wedding of the year.
It was a strictly non-traditional day packed with surprises. From Robbie and Ayda substituting the traditional bridesmaids for their eight dogs, to the absence of a Best Man and the 60 guests being told they were going to James Bond-themed party until moments before the ceremony started.
Then there was Robbie bringing the house down with a spontaneous performance of his hit song Angels, which brought guests to their feet for a mass sing-a-long.
“The only thing that’s traditional about the wedding is the vows. No hen party, no bachelor party, no wedding showers,” Robbie told HELLO! in the world exclusive interview.
Ayda added: “Our doggies are taking the bridesmaid roles! I was originally thinking little bow ties for them, but instead they’re going to each have flower collars.”
An emotional Robbie could not contain his joy when he laid eyes on his beautiful bride in her exquisite, snow-white Monique Lhuillier wedding gown with netted silk taffeta skirt and laced, beaded corset.
“Ayda looked like the most beautiful girl in the world,” the overjoyed star told HELLO! “The setting was so magical, and to be surrounded by family and close friends and then see Ayda appear looking so radiant was almost too much for me to take…I’m the happiest man alive”.
Unable to decide on one theme for the food, the pair opted for three wedding meals, consisting of all their favourites: from sushi to steak to red velvet chocolate cake – and culminating in a traditional English breakfast of bacon, beans and eggs, which was served to guests at 1am.
The cake was especially important to the couple: “The cake’s got three layers. The first is red velvet, Rob’s favourite, the second is carrot cake, and the third is vanilla and coconut,” Ayda explained. “I’m going to have a cake headache,” said Robbie. “People will be wobbling home. We want them to leave us as Weebles.”
Robbie revealed Ayda will make the perfect life partner for him because: “She makes me want to be a better person. And in the process I have become a better person.”
In the HELLO! interview the loved-up couple also talk for the first time of Robbie’s romantic Christmas Day proposal, their hilarious first date, their love of reality TV shows and how they are in no rush to have a baby right now, contrary to reports this week.
