Made In Chelsea stars Maeva D’Ascanio and James Taylor’s enjoyed a gorgeous first wedding ceremony last week where they tied the knot at Chelsea Town Hall.
The bride, 31, looked elegant in a silk white skirt and sparkly gold top for her London nuptials where the pair were joined by 20 of their closest friends and family.
Their son Beau, 11 months, joined them for the ceremony – from which her Made In Chelsea co-stars were absent – which was followed by a wedding breakfast at Claridge’s.
It comes ahead of a second lavish ceremony which will reportedly be filmed for the Channel 4 show where their famous pals will be invited.
She told Hello! Magazine of the special day: ‘Seeing our families being so emotional while we were walking down the aisle, and having Beau with us, was very special. The ceremony was quick but intense and beautiful.

‘Beau was here the whole time he was either on James’s lap or my lap. He was so noisy and funny.
‘He is our little prince and it was more than important to have him with us. He was basically marrying his parents!’
After the ceremony they headed to the Claridge’s hotel for the wedding breakfast where Maeve changed into dress number two – a Jesús Peiró gown with sheer capped sleeves.
The iconic London hotel was perfectly decorated for Christmas and oozed the ‘British elegance’ that Maeve had always dreamed of.
After dining with their guests Maeve and James cut their wedding cake before the couple headed to their second luxury location of the day – a suite at The Ritz.
Maeva and James have been together for three years and welcomed a baby boy named Beau Christian Taylor last year.
The couple got engaged last April while visiting the Trevi Fountain in Rome and previously said they are looking forward to a festive wedding.
James proposed with a 2.5-carat pear-shaped diamond engagement ring which he designed and had already asked Maeva’s father for permission to marry her last year.

He said: ‘It feels like I have everything I have ever wanted – it’s that secure feeling that this is my woman, forever.’
His-wife-to-be said: ‘I feel protected – being engaged to the man of my dreams is amazing. It’s a different love, it’s stronger, it’s deeper. I feel safe.’
Previously Maeva told Johnny Seifert on the Secure The Insecure podcast: ‘The plans are for a Christmas wedding but that’s it for now. It’s going be here in England. We’re just waiting to actually start the process of organizing the wedding.
‘Right now we’re trying to be focused on the baby. Otherwise, it’s too much to think about.’
James previously revealed that they have secured the wedding venue for the second celebrations and confirmed they will be staying in the UK, despite Maeve being born in France.
He said: ‘We went to view a place in England. It’ll be an English winter wedding, with friends, family and people from the show.’
Last week, Maeva shared a snap of herself and James looking glam at a red carpet event and captioned it: ‘Marrying you soon soon soon.’
Maeva and James have said the possibility of filming their second ceremony is definitely on their radar, and they definitely seem positive.
Speaking on FUBAR Radio, Maeva said ‘we’ll see’ when asked if they’re planning to show it on MIC, while James replied ‘we need to work that one out’ as he said a few friends and family members are ‘camera shy’ and ‘we don’t want to be reshooting the magic moment’.
In a later interview with OK! Magazine, it looked more as though the couple wanted to say yes to filming, reflecting on how ‘beautiful’ it was when Ollie and Gareth did it. ‘We’re swinging towards saying yes,’ James told the publication.
Back in March, Maeva revealed she had ‘found the perfect dress’ as she tried on a number of wedding gowns ahead of her big day.
