Former S Club 7 Star Rachel Stevens’ Wedding

Although her years as a member of the Britpop band S Club 7 are in the past, a memory of yesterday guided singer/actress Rachel Stevens toward her future on August 2, 2009 as the melody to “I’ve Never Had A Dream Come True” began to play on the keys of a white grand piano, the music escorting her steps down the aisle to the man of her dreams, Alex Bourne. The pair have been engaged since June 2008.

According to The Sun , 184 friends and family members– including Coronation Street‘s Kate Ford– witnessed the happy couple exchange vows beneath a white gazebo at Claridges Hotel in London. The newlyweds are currently keeping their “I do” details a secret until the release of a magazine’s exclusive coverage of the event.
