Love me like you do: Ellie Goulding weds art dealer Caspar Jopling in lavish ceremony

Katy Perry, Sarah Ferguson and Sienna Miller were among the guests at the very British wedding

Anything Could Happen singer Ellie Goulding, 32, has married her art dealer boyfriend, Caspar Jopling, with royalty and celebrities in attendance.

The pair tied the knot at York Minster Cathedral on Saturday, August 31, and Goulding wore a custom Chloe gown with beaded detailing for the nuptials. Jopling, 27, and the male attendees wore traditional morning suits.

With plenty of very conventional details – top hat and tails, a blusher veil and modest bouquets – apparent on the day, there were also injections of the singer's personality on display. She arrived by blue Volkswagen camper van, rather than by a classic car, and her bridesmaids all donned white, almost-bridal gowns, a departure from the tried-and-tested coloured dresses of typical weddings.

The bride looked overjoyed as she left hand-in-hand with her new husband, with lively crowds surrounding them to celebrate as they departed the cathedral. Unlike the classic ceremony, it has been speculated that the reception would have a festival theme, with guests camping out on site at Castle Howard, around 24 kilometres from York Minster Cathedral.

An A-list guest list 

There was no shortage of star power on the wedding guest list. It had been speculated that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Duke and Duchess of Sussex would be at the big day, but there was no sign of them in the wedding photos. Instead, Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice were there to represent the royals, along with their mother, Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York. In fact, it is rumoured that Princess Eugenie is the "mutual friend" who introduced the singer and the art dealer back in March 2017.

Who is Caspar Jopling?

Old Etonian Caspar Jopling studied at the same school as Princes Harry and William, although at 27 years old, he is 10 years younger than the Duke of Cambridge, so would not have been mingling with him in the playground.

He left the UK for American university Harvard, where he studied film with history of art and architecture. He later took a job at Sotheby's New York, where he was introduced to Goulding. The pair have since moved back to the UK together.

Also an athlete, Jopling competed for Team GB's rowing team in the Youth Olympics.

The couple announced their engagement in  August 2018, by placing a formal notice in The Times which read: "Mr CWF Jopling and Miss EJ Goulding.

"The engagement is announced between Caspar, son of The Hon Nicholas Jopling of Yorkshire and Mrs Jayne Warde-Aldam of Yorkshire, and Elena, daughter of Mr Arthur Goulding of Herefordshire and Mrs Tracey Sumner of West Midlands."

Ellie Goulding's handmade dress 

The bride chose an embroidered and handmade Chloe dress, which is said to have taken more than 640 hours to make. It was created by designer Natacha Ramsay-Levi.

The ruffled high-necked gown had glass bead detailing and modest long sleeves. She also chose a traditional two-tiered veil, which was embroidered with the bride and groom's initials, E and C.

"I was so thrilled and excited to collaborate with Natacha at Chloe on my wedding dress. I have loved the brand and their incredible team for years, so it only seemed right for Chloe to play big part of this special day," Goulding said in a statement released to celebrity website Just Jared.

"I have never felt more special than the moment I first tried on the dress during my fitting in Paris. It was utterly awe-inspiring to see the craftsmanship and attention to detail."

Jopling wore a morning suit tailored by Savile Row's Huntsman and Sons.
