An intimate wedding ceremony was followed by a rather more public reception on Monday evening as Jamie Redknapp and pregnant wife Frida Andersson celebrated their nuptials at an upmarket seafood restaurant.
The just-married couple were joined by Frida’s new in-laws Harry and Sandra Redknapp as they arrived at Mayfair eatery Scotts for a celebratory dinner, shortly after exchanging vows at Chelsea Registry office.
Frida, 37, who is expecting the couple’s first child together, was still wearing the tasteful cream dress she wore for the service as she made her way inside the popular restaurant.
