Bildeston: Former Eastender’s daughter weds
SCARCELY has a soap wedding gone off without a hitch - but everything went according to script for one famous father of the bride.
Unlike Bill Treacher’s on-screen family strife, the marriage of his real-life daughter Sophie happily lacked catastrophe and passed free from any bust-ups or nail-biting dramas.
The former Eastenders star, who for more than a decade played long-suffering Arthur Fowler in the BBC soap opera, was among family and friends gathered for the ceremony at Christmas Hall country house, in Bildeston.
In a story more suited to romance than drama, Sophie met husband Adrian Sellars through another performing family member.
The 33-year-old, who works behind the camera on the production side of the industry, actually moved in with her future spouse before they began a relationship.

Mr Sellars had been a long-time friend and housemate of Sophie’s brother, Jamie, who offered her a place to stay on her return from filming abroad.
The pair hit it off and exchanged vows just a few miles from Mr Treacher’s Suffolk home, where he lives with actress wife Kate, who described the event as a “lovely day” with musical performances from Jamie and friends, and a traditional ceilidh band. She added: “Weddings were always a disaster in Eastenders but there were no dramas during this one.”

Sophie, whose production credits include BBC serial Birdsong and the big-screen adaptation of Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice, starring Al Pacino, is thankfully luckier in love than on-screen counterpart Michelle Fowler, who once jilted hapless Lofty Holloway at the altar.
