TELEVISION presenter Ross King has married his long-time partner Brianna Deutsch in a star-studded ceremony attended by Take That star Gary Barlow and Hollywood actor Gerard Butler.
The Good Morning Britain and Lorraine correspondent exchanged vows with producer Deutsch in front of other celebrities including Jackie Collins, Patsy Palmer and Vinnie Jones.
King told Hello!: “When I was taking acting lessons I was taught a technique which helps you to be present in the moment. It’s a way of slowing down time. I shall never forget seeing Brianna walk up the aisle.
“Nor the mention of my parents - my elderly mother back in Glasgow and my father who we lost a couple of years ago. I’d have loved them to have been there.”
His wife added: “It was everything I wanted it to be and more. What surprised me was that I was so calm. It meant I was able to savour every moment, although I did get teary when we exchanged vows.”
Barlow performed during the reception - at one point duetting with the groom - and he told the magazine: “My wife Dawn and I often spend summer holidays in California with the kids but we’d have come here specially for the wedding. I’m so pleased for them both.”
300 star Butler said: “We first met at a party on a barge in London. It was so nice to see my buddy finally get hitched. And he’s lucked out with Brianna - she’s a great woman.”
And Collins said: “Ross is the most fabulous guy. And Brianna is a fantastic girl, not only a raving beauty but also a lovely, warm person. I’m thrilled for them.”
The couple married in Beverly Hills restaurant Il Cielo with the bride wearing a Vera Wang gown which she picked out when the couple of eight years got engaged in 2010.
