Ciara and Russell Wilson share first wedding picture

Ciara has taken to Instagram to post the first picture from her fairytale wedding to Russell Wilson.


The 30-year-old singer tied the knot with NFL star Russell, 27, in a lavish ceremony in Cheshire, England on Wednesday and Ciara took to Instagram to post a sweet picture of them together following the ceremony.

Ciara's picture - which she captioned "We are The Wilsons" - shows the smiling couple walking down the aisle together after becoming man and wife.

The bride opted for a Roberto Cavalli dress, designed specifically for the event by the luxury brand's creative director Peter Dundas, E! News reports.


Ciara and Russell married at the 48-room Peckforton Castle, an hour outside of Liverpool, in front of celebrity guests including Jennifer Hudson and Kelly Rowland.

Earlier in the week, the couple held a rehearsal dinner at Liverpool's Titanic Hotel and "couldn't keep their hands off each other" throughout the party.

An insider shared: "The rehearsal dinner was beautiful. Ciara and Russell couldn't keep their hands off of each other. The love was strong in the room. Russell and Ciara said a few words to their guest thanking them for coming to Liverpool for this special occasion. Kelly [Rowland] and Lala [Vasquez] were helping Ciara beforehand get ready and haven't left her side."

Seattle Seahawks player Russell proposed to Ciara in March during a romantic getaway to the Seychelles after a year of dating.

And the couple want to have children together as soon as possible.

Ciara previously said: "I definitely [want more kids], yes. [Russell and I] discuss a lot of things ... a lot of good things! He is just an amazing guy. Honestly, him being in my life is really sweet ... Life is pretty good, I can say that."

Ciara already has a two-year-old son Future Zahir Wilburn, with the rapper Future, her former fiance.
