POP star El­lie Gould­ing yes­ter­day pulled up at her wedding in a proper pas­sion wagon... a VW camper.

The Starry Eyed singer is worth more than £15mil­lion, but in­stead of us­ing flashy bridal trans­port she rocked up to York Min­ster in a trendy Type 2 Trans­porter “dub bus” to marry her No1 man, art dealer Cas­par Jo­pling.

But the chart-top­ping bride didn’t shun all wedding cus­toms. She wore white and the flower-cov­ered van was some­thing old, bor­rowed and blue.


The happy cou­ple were joined by a host of stars as they tied the knot at the Gothic cathe­dral.

Then they cel­e­brated with a lav­ish £100,000 re­cep­tion at Cas­tle Howard, made fa­mous by 1980s TV drama Brideshead Re­vis­ited.

Ac­tress Si­enna Miller and her art gallery owner boyfriend Lucas Zwirner were among the wedding guests.

And princesses

Eu­ge­nie and

Beatrice were there with their mum

Sarah, the Duchess of York.

The roy­als were greeted by Eu­ge­nie’s hus­band Jack Brooks­bank, who was one of the grooms­men. Other celebrity guests in­cluded co­me­dian Jimmy Carr and artist Tracey Emin.

Cas­par, 27, gave cheer­ing crowds a thumbs-up when his ar­rival was an­nounced by York’s town crier. And beam­ing El­lie, 32, gave her fans a wave as she pulled up out­side.

The chart-top­per’s tra­di­tional gown, veil and train were ar­ranged by her brides­maids – who were also in white – just be­fore she walked up the aisle.

Thou­sands of tourists and well­wish­ers waited out­side the Min­ster for over an hour be­fore the new­ly­weds and their celebrity pals emerged.

El­lie and Cas­par thrilled the crowds by kiss­ing out­side the cathe­dral be­fore be­ing whisked away in the camper.

The cou­ple an­nounced their en­gage­ment in The Times a year ago and, at the time, El­lie re­vealed her wedding would kick off a dream come true.

The ro­man­tic pop star, whose hits in­clude Burn and Your Son, said in an Instagram post last year that she was look­ing for­ward to be­ing Cas­par’s “very gig­gly, in awe and loved-up wife”.
