The glamour star and her cage fighter boyfriend married yesterday in Las Vegas
Katie Price and her cage fighter boyfriend Alex Reid married in a quickie ceremony in Las Vegas yesterday.
Rumours had been circulating that the former Mrs Andre would soon have a ring on her finger, after numerous hints Alex made to the press.
But the pair jetted off for a Las Vegas break following Alex’s winning stint in the Big Brother house, and decided to exchange vows there and then.
And the couple issued a joint statement after the ceremony, confirming they had married.
‘We look forward to the future together. We can’t wait to get back and celebrate our marriage with our friends and family who fully support our wishes,’ they announced.
Just hours before the wedding in a chapel at the Wynn hotel, the couple were spotted shopping for wedding rings in a Las Vegas jewelers.
And it seems the only delay was finding the bride something to wear!
‘They wanted to have the ceremony as soon as they got to Vegas, but the bridal stores weren’t open so she couldn’t get a dress,’ an insider said.
‘She had her fashion team trawling all over town for a gown. In the end she just had to make do.’
After the ceremony the newly-weds headed back to the famous Planet Hollywood hotel where they are reportedly staying in a $10,000 a night penthouse honeymoon suit.
But in a step away from tradition, there was no media present at the nuptials, just a single film crew in attendance from Katie’s reality show.
‘Their decision to marry has not been made with any media deal in place. It is purely down to their love for each other,’ said a rep for the pair.
