FIRST PICS: Coleen and Wayne marry
Coleen McLoughlin and Wayne Rooney were married this morning in a civil ceremony in the town of Santa Margherita Ligure, Italy.
Facing every bride’s worst nightmare, Coleen had to battle rainstorms as she was escorted to the bridal car. She was shaded by a large black umbrella as she made her way to the Genova harbour, where she became Mrs Rooney in a 20 minute ceremony.

Wearing what is thought to be her first wedding dress of the day, Coleen chose a strapless prom dress for the ceremony, with a full layered chiffon skirt that stopped just at the ankle.
From the bright red soles, it also appears that her white court shoes were by celebrity-favourite, Christian Louboutin.
It is thought that the bride will change into a £100,000 Marchesa gown for the blessing and wedding breakfast, due to take place at La Cervara abbey today.
Just a small group of family and friends attended the ceremony, which was led by deputy mayor Gianni Costa.
Speaking after the couple left, Mr Costa commented, ‘It was a simple ceremony with around 15 people inside, mostly family. The bride looked lovely in white and the groom wore a brown suit with no tie.’
He added, ‘No rings were exchanged and the ceremony was very simple yet very beautiful.’
