The images were taken by photographer Alexi Lubomirski earlier this week.

Alexi Lubomirski said: "It was an incredible honour to be asked to document this wonderful event, but also a great privilege to be invited to share and be a witness to this young couple’s love for one another.

"I cannot help but smile when I look at the photos that we took of them, such was their happiness together."
