He told OK! magazine: "I cried as soon as the day started. There was just no going back on the emotion.

"Seeing Tate and Lorenz walk Kate down the aisle was particularly poignant and we wouldn’t have wanted to do it any other way. They were so proud and they couldn’t wait to do that, they felt important."

Rio, 40, shares his kids with his late wife Rebecca Ellison, who died of cancer in 2015.

Kate was also joined by her father Phil Wright - who was previously estranged - for half of her walk down the aisle.

He later told The Sun: "It was an amazing wedding and I felt very proud.

“There has been a lot of emotion all round . . . it’s been a mad few days.”
