A star-studded guest list featuring pop icons and royals alike gathered for Ellie Goulding's wedding ceremony in York.

The Starry Eyed singer, 32, married her art dealer fiance Caspar Jopling in the Gothic splendour of York Minster.

The chart-topper wore a traditional wedding gown with a veil and train, which was carried by her bridesmaids.

She arrived for her wedding in a blue Volkswagen camper.

There were cheers from the crowd and shouts of "Ellie" before the Love Me Like You Do singer rewarded waiting fans with a wave.

The star-studded wedding counted American singer Katy Perry and actor boyfriend Orlando Bloom among the guests.

Also in attendance were singer James Blunt, actress Sienna Miller, comedian Jimmy Carr and artist Tracey Emin.

Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice arrived with their mother Sarah, Duchess of York and were greeted by Eugenie's husband Jack Brooksbank, who is one of the groomsmen.

The groom, 27, gave a thumbs up to waiting guests on his arrival. He was cheered by the crowds and greeted with an announcement by York's town crier.

The service is expected to be followed by a lavish reception at Castle Howard, a stately home near Malton, North Yorkshire.

Goulding performed at the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's wedding party in 2011 and, with her fiance, was a guest at Princess Eugenie's marriage last October.
