Singer Charlotte Church and her musician boyfriend have married in a secret ceremony.

The star, 31, and her partner Jonny Powell, 30, officially tied the knot at Cardiff Register Office on 16 September.

But news of the union, which included a ceremony at their Dinas Powys home, had been kept under wraps by their guests.

The couple, who started dating in 2010, used Twitter to announce their marriage.

Church tweeted her 166,000 followers with a picture of the couple on their wedding day accompanied by the message: "Seriously happy people".

Their marriage came three months after the singer announced she had suffered a miscarriage.

She is a mother to nine-year-old Ruby and Dexter, eight, from her previous relationship with Gavin Henson.
