Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black

Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black tied the knot yesterday after a hospital scare for Daley earlier this week.

The couple reportedly had their wedding in Bovey Castle, Devon, and the event sounded like a dream fairytale.

Daley recited lines from Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet before vows were exchanged and they were officially married.

A string quartet played throughout the service and reception which followed after.

The intimate group of just 50 family and friends enjoyed a three course mean, a “massive cake” and slept in the castle after the evening wound down.

Lance-Black and Daley announced their engagement in 2015 with a traditional announcement in The Times, two years after Daley came out in 2013.

The 22-year-old Olympian and 42-year-old Oscar-winning screen writer have been together for four years.

Daley recently faced controversy after he was accused of having an affair by a number of media outlets when a video of him stripping was leaked online.

The athlete admitted that he had sexted and sent explicit videos when he and Lance-Black were on a seven month break.

They have since released a video together insisting that the two were “good” and that the relationship was as strong as ever.

A source close to the couple reportedly told the Sun that friends and family were excited for the wedding, but thought they should move “slowly” after the controversy.

The source said: “It’ll be a lovely occasion and they are very excited, but some friends think they might be better taking things slowly after everything they’ve been through.

“It’s been a tough six months for them. They had a bit of a break and have just started to rebuild their relationship.

“Marriage might put extra pressure on them,” they added.
