Surrounded by friends and family in the church she sang in as a child, Laura returned to her roots to say her wedding vows.

She tied the knot with her personal trainer partner of six years, ex-London Irish player Harry Rowland, at St Michael’s Church in Framlingham.

The pair enjoyed a winter wedding in a church decked with 30 Christmas trees, inviting family, friends and famous names like TV presenter Helen Skelton.

“It was the most brilliant day – everything we’d hoped for,” the former Framlingham College pupil told Hello! magazine.

“To have all of our friends and family together and making memories with us was amazing.

“The best thing about a Christmas wedding is that you’re starting the new year as a married couple and look to the future.”

Laura, 28, rose to prominence in Suffolk in 2006 as a member of classical quintet All Angels.

The group released three albums and even supported international superstar Katherine Jenkins before Laura broke out as a solo singer in 2010.

Often referred to as ‘the Queen’s favourite’, Laura has dazzled audiences, performing for thousands of sports fans at Wembley Stadium and the Grand National.

She has also been chosen as the England Rugby team’s official anthem singer, performing at the 2015 Rugby World Cup and at countless England matches since.

In July 2018 she took on an incredible charity challenge as part of a team of conservation ambassadors cycling 400km across Zambia for the conservationist charity the David Shepard Wildlife Foundation (DSWF).

With her husband-to-be Harry, DSWF education adviser Andrew White and South African cricketer Jacques Rudolph in tow, the group raised more than £25,000 and sang with the villagers they met along the way – describing the journey as a “life-changing” experience.

As well as charity work she is a strong advocate for sports, writing the England Womens Cricket team’s official anthem, “Heroes”.

Her husband Harry Rowland is a professional personal trainer and ex-rugby player, with a spell at London Irish.

Speaking about his wife on their special day, Rowland said: “She looked absolutely amazing.

“I’ve seen her in a lot of glamorous dresses but this topped it all.”
