'Mum Was There'

Peaches Geldof believes her late mother Paula Yates was watching over her as she tied the knot with indie musician Thomas Cohen at the weekend.

The couple held their wedding in the same spot where her mother's marriage and funeral took place, at St Mary Magdalene and St Lawrence Church in Davington, Kent.

In an interview with Hello! magazine, which covered Saturday's wedding, Peaches said it was her "most amazing day''.

The new bride posed for a photo for the magazine along with Cohen, the couple's five-month-old son Astala and her proud father, the musician and campaigner Bob Geldof.

She and Cohen - from the band SCUM - celebrated their marriage at Bob's country home, Davington Priory, with the event fulfilling Peaches' vision of "a country wedding meets Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream''.

Wearing a custom-made Alberta Ferretti gown, she said of Yates: "I feel her presence all the time but especially today. Mum loved family celebrations and she would adore Tom and the fact that we've married here. I know that she is watching over me and feeling so happy for us.''

Yates died in 2000 following a drug overdose.

The ceremony was full of quirky details, with the bride and groom's eight-month-old golden retriever puppy Parper as ring bearer and the cake featuring edible pigs.

Peaches, 23, said: "I'm obsessed with pigs. I just think they're adorable so they had to play a part in the wedding.''

The ceremony featured Jewish customs and a Hebrew wedding prayer.

Peaches, who also wore two more designer gowns during the day, was previously married to US singer Max Drummey in a Las Vegas ceremony in 2008 but they split the following year.

Bob said it was a "relief'' to see his daughter married.

"It's a beautiful day, in all senses of the word. I am happy for them. I love seeing people in love,'' he said.

The seven bridesmaids included Peaches's sisters Fifi, 29, Pixie, 21 and Tiger, 16.

Peaches said: "I've married the most wonderful man who I know loves me beyond anything, through all my faults.''

Hello! editor Rosie Nixon denied that her magazine intends to move away from celebrity exclusives.

"Far from it. This week's edition is a classic example of what Hello! is, and continues to be, all about: inviting our readers to get closer to the stars as they invite us to the most personal moments in their lives.''
