She looked stunning in a lace and satin A-Line dress with a sweetheart neckline.

Petra wore a gold tiara with a long veil behind her and opted for a subtle smoky eye and pink lips to complement her understated dress.

The bride wore it, letting a few loose locks fall around her face.

The happy couple posed with Petra’s three children from her previous marriage to James Stunt and their 18-month-old daughter.

Sam kept fans updated throughout the day, gushing about his new wife.

“What a day. All my dreams come true,” he wrote on Instagram.

Sam drove home in a Rolls Royce with his two page boys, Petra’s twin sons Andrew and James, six, after sharing a photo of the boys in blue silk pajamas with ‘Page Boy’ written in the back.

He also shared a picture of his wedding ring saying “I can’t believe I’m a married man.”

The couple celebrated their nuptials in the mansion’s garden under marquees, treating their guest to a sumptuous Italian menu printed on bespoke gold plaques with their names on them.

Guests were treated to a three-course meal of antipasti, fish, chicken, penne pasta, zucchini fritters, a selection of desserts and a choice of two fine wines.

The marquee was elaborately decorated with stunning foliage and floral arrangements hanging from the ceiling.

White tablecloths were laid on the tables with matching white chairs decorated with white ribbons.

The couple then posed for photos outside the front door of the mansion.

They then danced the night away with their wedding guests as the band Razorlight entertained the crowd.

Sam also showed off Petra’s ‘greatest wedding present’, West Ham’s 1980 winning FA Cup.

He put the mug by his bed before falling asleep.

“I’m going to sleep with the 1980 FA Cup next to my bed,” Sam wrote in the cup photo.

“It has to be considered the greatest wedding gift of all time.”

The couple started dating in 2017 after being introduced by brother-in-law Jay Rutland and got engaged a year later.

Petra, who recently traveled to the UK with Sam and her four children from California, has tightened security for her big day, fearing her ex-husband James Stunt, 40, whom she divorced in 2018, could ruin his special day.

“All brides are nervous before their wedding, but for Petra it was amplified by her fears about James,” a source close to the model told The Sun.

“Petra says she wouldn’t let James through trying to shine on her big day, so she did everything she could to make sure nothing could go wrong.”

“Even her father Bernie and sister Tamara weren’t told some of the finer details”

She and Stunt had a toxic separation after six years and three children five years ago.

And the beards they traded didn’t stop after their divorce.

Stunt was then declared bankrupt in 2019 and this year was accused of being part of a £266m money laundering gang, allegations he denies.
