Ellie’s starry bride
Singer Ellie Goulding ties the knot after arriving in a borrowed blue VW camper
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.

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”.
