Sir Richard Branson has shared intimate snaps from his daughter Holly's Caribbean wedding to ship broker Fred Andrewes.

The 61-year-old Virgin boss posted the images on his blog of the couple's family, friends and other loved ones celebrating their special day on the idyllic Necker Island.

To accompany the pictures he wrote: "So proud of my beautiful daughter and delighted to welcome Freddie into the family. Hope you enjoy the photos."

In one image, he appears emotional as he prepares to give his stunning daughter away and, in another, the besotted newlyweds share their first dance.

The couple, both 30, tied the knot in December on Branson's £60m private Caribbean island despite a fire ripping through it just months before and completely destroying the main house.

They were almost forced to scrap their wedding plans following the fire, which left much of the accommodation in ruins.
