Spring is a time of reawakening, not only of the earth, but also in a person’s heart. Five months after suffering public heartbreak as her longtime beau Marc Bannerman became captivated with another, actress Sarah Matravers said “I do” to the man who renewed her faith in love– millionaire Ian Stewart. On April 5, 2008, Coronation Street star Alison King was among the guests who gathered at 30 St. Mary Axe, a London site fondly referred to as The Gherkin, to witness the couple exchange vows in a civil ceremony, the Daily Mail revealed.
Choosing colors as fiery as the feelings they share, the former Footballers Wives star clutched a bouquet of vibrant orange and yellow roses as she walked down the aisle in a midi length, lace-accented wedding dress, its sentimental sweetheart neckline a dramatic foil for the slit skirt which revealed the bright orange fabric of her petticoat. White high heel shoes adorned with orange bows carried her to her groom, who wore an orange tie and boutonniere along with his classic black suit to harmonize with his bride.
