Yesterday they were guests at a wedding but today was the big day for James Corden and his new wife Julia.

The pair wed in a lavish £250,000 ceremony in front of a whole host of celebrity friends.

The 34-year-old comedian and writer was pictured beaming as he led his new bride out onto the lawn toast his marriage with friends including David Walliams and his wife Lara Stone and Jimmy Carr, who was celebrating his 40th birthday today.

Julia, who gave birth to son Max in March last year, looked amazing in an elegant wedding gown covered in lace.

The figure-hugging dress by designer Monique Lhuillier nipped the former TV producer in at the waist and boasted a form-fitting basque.

The long-sleeved design, which cost £8,000, also had a long train which tumbled out onto the ground behind Julia.

The mother-of-one had her blonde hair up with a veil placed above the low bun, she also pearls dangling from her ears.

James, who was beaming with joy in the wake of the nuptials, looked dapper in a smart navy suit by Savile Row designer Spencer Hart, with a white rose on his left lapel.

While the sun hid behind clouds the couple celebrated with friends on the lawn outside the impressive venue and the couple were serenaded by pop star Gary Lightbody, lead singer of the band Snow Patrol. Former Radio 1 DJ Chris Moyles and chart-topping hip-hop artists Rizzle Kicks also performed.

Corden is understood to have spent £200,000 hiring Babington House – a 32-bedroom former stately home that is now a hotel and private members’ club – for the three-day celebration, which began with a drinks reception on Friday evening.

Earlier this week, members of the Soho House private members’ club, who pay up to £1,000 a year for membership – which entitles them to use the facilities at Babington House – received an email saying the venue would be closed from midday on Friday until lunchtime today.

But it seemed the message hadn’t reached a handful of regulars, who were left angry when they arrived at the gates yesterday to be told they were unable to use the facilities.

There must have been plenty of laughs at the party with a whole host of comedy talent at the bash.

As well as Walliams and Carr Michael McInytre was also present with his wife Kitty.

This morning James was seen on the balcony of the hotel dressed down and the funny man was surrounded by a group of pals.

The One Man, Two Guvnors star proposed to Julia on Christmas day 2010 and the pair welcomed their son Max less than three months later.
