Downton Abbey’s Allen Leech tied the knot on 5th January with Jessica Blair Herman in a star studded ceremony in California.
When getting married outside, you’re hoping for sunshine and blue skies and in California that shouldn’t be hard to find. But while Irish man Allen Leech waited on his wife-to-be to walk down the aisle, the rain started to pour. Clearly some of Ireland had come to one of America’s sunshine states to wish Allen well on his big day.
Unfortunately their booked string quartet couldn’t play but good friends and guests Lea Michele and Darren Criss rescued the day by singing the beautiful bride down the aisle! And the rain actually added to the magic of the day too.
The pair tied the knot in Alisal Ranch and Resort in California’s Santa Ynez Valley where Downton Abbey co-stars Michelle Dockery and Dan Stevens were in attendance.
Jessica, 32 walked down the aisle in a beautiful Monique Lhuillier gown with Yves Saint Laurent heels and kept her hair in simple waves and wore subtle jewellery to complement her wedding gown. Her handsome hubby to be, 37 wore a dark navy Armani suit with a burgundy bow-tie and they made quite the lovely newlyweds!
Allen spoke of seeing Jessica walking down the aisle ‘That moment of seeing Jessica, oh my God, it was magical. It will stay with me forever’ and Jessica remarks how she knew Allen was the man for her the moment she met him ‘As soon as I met him there was a sense of ease and comfort, that I knew marriage would be uncomplicated and beautiful with him.’
We wish them all the happiness!
