McFLY drummer Harry Judd and his new wife Izzy Johnston this week shared intimate details of their wedding day which saw a taste of Strictly Come Dancing waltz its way to a hotel in St Albans.

Harry and his long-term girlfriend, who is a former member of string-quartet Escala, tied the knot at St Nicholas Church in Harpenden on the Friday before Christmas, surrounded by celebrity pals including football pundit Robbie Savage.

According to Izzy she was unable to sleep on the evening before the big day as she kept going over the steps to their ambitious first dance.

Harry, who won Strictly Come Dancing in 2011, spent 11 hours rehearsing the number with his bride-to-be, with the help of professional dancer Ian Waite.

The happy couple performed the dance to Michael Bublé’s Can’t Help Falling in Love during their wedding reception at St Michael’s Manor Hotel in Fishpool Street, St Albans.

Speaking to Hello! magazine Harry said: “It was just perfection. Genuinely the best day ever. Izzy looked absolutely beautiful.”

Along with his McFly bandmates he also performed a few tracks, and guests reportedly tucked into a cake topped with a glitterball trophy.
