Peaches Geldof married on Saturday.

The socialite wed musician Tom Cohen at the St Mary Magdalene and St Lawrence Church in Davington, Kent, Southern England, the village where she was raised.

The church has special significance for Peaches' family as it is where her mother, the late Paula Yates, and her father, Bob Geldof, had their wedding blessed after earlier marrying in Las Vegas in 1986.

The church is also where Paula's funeral was held in 2000.

Peaches, 23, and Tom, 20, exchanged vows in front of a small congregation at the church, before moving on to a reception in the grounds of, Davington ­Priory, where Bob still lives.

A female vicar was seen outside of the church ahead of the ceremony, wearing a traditional black shirt and collar teamed with a white patterned skirt.

On Friday Peaches - who has a five-month old son, Astala, with Tom - expressed her excitement for the forthcoming nuptials on twitter, writing: “Very soon my engagement ring will have a wedding band under it! SO excited- my last few days of not being a wife!!!! (sic).”

The marriage is a second for Peaches, after her brief marriage to American musician Max Drummey, whom she wed in Las Vegas in 2008. The couple split in February 2009 but were not officially divorced until April 2011. - Bang Showbiz
