One of television's most eligible bachelors is officially off the market as presenter Rick Edwards has tied the knot with EastEnders actress Emer Kenny in an idyllic ceremony at Kew Gardens.

The 37-year-old Safe Word host married his new bride, best known for playing Zsa Zsa Carter in the BBC soap, before friends and family on Sunday (29 May), and posted a picture on Instagram of the newlyweds walking down the aisle as people applauded.

He captioned the shot: "NO BIG DEAL GUYS (regram from my don @christophergove)", as the couple are seen grinning from ear to ear and Edwards looks dapper in a grey three piece suit, whilst Kenny stuns in a low-cut bandeau floor-grazing ivory gown accessorised with a veil and a bouquet.

Kenny, 26, who made her acting debut in the 2007 BBC television drama Coming Down the Mountain, shared the same photo on her Instagram page with a heart emoji along with other pictures of the wedding and her new husband.

Judging from her most recent post, where she is wearing hair rollers with Edwards in the background, it looks as though the lovebirds are postponing their honeymoon for the time being. She wrote : "Bring your husband to work day. (Who needs a honeymoon?)".

Fashionista and former television presenter Alexa Chung was also in attendance at the Edwards and Kenny wedding, and also took to her Instagram profile to share a video of herself wearing a pink polka dot ruffled dress by Erdem along with a shot of the new couple, accompanying it with: "Congratulations to these dons!!!! @rickedwards1 @missemerkenny" along with a string of heart emojis.

Chung met Edwards whilst working as a presenter for Channel 4 and E4, where they presented T4 together. Edwards also presented Tool Academy, Freshly Squeezed, E4 Music and much of Channel 4's 2012 Paralympics coverage. He also presents Free Speech every fortnight on BBC Three. He once revealed in a Daily Mail interview that he had lost his sense of smell due to sniffing pure ammonia in school.
