The groom needed a bit of encouragement, but he was soon smiling happily alongside his famous other half.
Jamie, 42, has undergone something of a pre-wedding makeover. He looks to have been working out, and he has had the mole on the side of his nose removed.
Kate was the image of hippy chic in a Seventies-inspired turquoise dress which she teamed with matching boots.
The couple headed for dinner after having a rehearsal at the church where they'll tie the knot.
No details have been officially released about the venue. But it has been reported the Croydon-born star will hold the wedding at a 12th-century church near her country home in the Cotswolds.
Kate - who met The Kills guitarist in 2007 - will apparently take her vows in St Margaret's Parish Church, close to her home in the village of Little Faringdon, near Lechlade.
Spotted close to the Norman, Grade II-listed church was Kate's pal Sadie Frost and her ten-year-old daughter Iris (below right), who will be a bridesmaid.
Jamie's "best woman" and fellow band member Alison Mosshart (above left) was also spotted in the vicinity, as were Jade Jagger and Kate's hairdresser friend James Brown.
Among the expected guests are also photographer
and fashion designers
and Dame Vivienne Westwood.
The couple, who were at Glastonbury last week, are rumoured to be planning a festival-themed bash. Celebrations will last for three days, with the likes of Iggy Pop, Beth Ditto and Snoop Dogg providing the musical entertainment.
After they tie the knot in a Church of England ceremony on Friday afternoon, the reception will take place in marquees which have been erected behind the model's mansion.
To ensure complete privacy, an 8ft metal fence has been erected around the perimeter of her estate.
Security guards have also been brought in to keep the paparazzi at bay.
