Model-turned-author Sophie Dahl married musician Jamie Cullum last weekend
Sophie Dahl has married Jamie Cullum.
The 32-year-old model-turned-author tied the knot with jazz musician Jamie, 30, in a romantic ceremony held in Britain's New Forest on Saturday (09.01.10).
The couple took over the 29-room Lime Wood Hotel, near Lyndhurst, Hants to create a "winter wonderland" for their guests.
Sophie's godmother Babs Powell, who attended the ceremony, said: "It was a very beautiful occasion for close family and friends. Sophie looked absolutely fantastic."
Sophie - granddaughter of late children's writer Roald Dahl - was given away by her actor father Julian Holloway in the civil ceremony, with her half-brothers Luke and Ned and half-sister Clover looking on.
She also put her differences with her mother, 52-year-old Tessa, behind her for the day, as she attended the wedding.
Jamie and Sophie met at a charity event two-and-a-half years ago, and their engagement was made public in April 2009 after Sophie was spotted wearing an engagement ring at a party.
Describing how he met Sophie, Jamie said: "We hit it off immediately. But someone like me never entertains the idea of going after someone like her, so I didn't.
"I couldn't assume she would be interested in me - but it worked! Lucky old me - it turned out to be much more."
