Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy has got married at a star-studded ceremony - after postponing his nuptials three times.

The Premiership winner tied the knot with Rebekah Nicholson at Peckforton Castle in Cheshire.

Guests included stars from the worlds of music and football.

The 29-year-old had already postponed the big day three times to avoid footballing commitments but will miss England's friendly on Friday.

Fellow England internationals were all apparently invited but manager Roy Hodgson poured cold water on the plans.

But he did give permission to the Foxes' Danny Drinkwater - as long as he made it to England training by 17:00.

With England commitments taking up much of the summer, Vardy - who signed from then non-league Fleetwood Town four years ago - has said he will delay his honeymoon.
