Charlotte Church marries partner Jonny Powell in a secret ceremony

Charlotte Church has tied the knot with her partner Jonny Powell.

According to the Daily Mail, the couple married in a secret ceremony held ‘under a tree’, with an official service taking place at a registry office in Cardiff.

A source told the paper: ‘Charlotte and Jonathan have been in love for a long time and a wedding was always on the cards.

The insider added that the pair, who are said to have been dating since 2010, wanted to keep their nuptials very low key, and asked their guests to keep their big day a secret.

‘Jonathan has been a great influence on Charlotte, she has calmed down a lot since she met him,’ they added.

Soon after the news broke, Charlotte took to social media to confirm that she has indeed tied the knot with an adorable picture of their wedding day.

The lovely news of their marriage comes just three months after Charlotte, 31, and Jonny, 30, revealed that they had suffered a miscarriage.

Charlotte confirmed the sad loss on her Twitter account at the time, writing: ‘Charlotte and Jonny are very sad to announce that they lost their baby. Now is a time for grieving and being together as a family. We kindly ask everyone to respect that peace.’

The wedding to Jonny marks Charlotte’s first marriage, although she does have two children – daughter Ruby, born in 2007, and son Dexter, who arrived in January 2009 – from her former relationship with rugby player Gavin Henson, from whom she split six weeks after announcing their engagement in 2010.

A source said to the Daily Mail of their decision: ‘After a lot of soul-searching, they realised this is the best course of action for them and the children. It was a mutual decision.’

During a rare candid interview about her personal life earlier this year, Charlotte told the Guardian: ‘We’ve got two dogs. We travel. And we just try to have lots of fun.’
