072307: Wedding of Former EastEnders Star Shane Richie

Wedding bells chimed on July 21, 2007 at St. Mary’s and All Saints Church in Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire, England for former EastEnders cast member Shane Richie as he was united in marriage with his love, Christie Goddard. UK newspaper The People reported that the bride was sheltered from the glare of paparazzi by white umbrellas as she stepped out of a white Rolls-Royce decorated with festive ribbons and made her way into the 800-year-old house of worship. Two hundred and twenty guests, including the groom’s former co-stars Barbara Windsor, Perry Fenwick and Steve McFadden, rose from the rows of wooden pews as she began to walk down the aisle in a crystal-accented wedding dress constructed of ivory satin. Framed by a stained glass windows depicting the crucifixion, the Virgin Mary and St. John, the groom stood at the altar in a pair of yellow Converse tennis shoes as he waited the moment when he would slip a wedding band on to his bride’s finger to accompany the diamond and platinum engagement ring she has worn since her birthday in April 2005.
