Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black have shared the first pictures of their wedding day.

The couple tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony after a hospital scare for Daley last week.

The couple reportedly had their wedding in Bovey Castle, Devon, near the UK’s south coast.

Revealing the first snaps of their special day, Daley wrote: “05.06.17 the day I married the love of my life ❤️ shared with 120 of our closest family and friends from Texarkana to Plymouth!”

In another post, he wrote that the day had been “unforgettable”.

His new husband Dustin Lance Black also shared special snaps of the day.

Sharing a shot of the pair holding each other close, Lance Black wrote: “6th of May 2017. When my hopes and dreams of “Maybe one day…” came true.”

Daley recited lines from Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet during the ceremony, according to reports, before vows were exchanged and they were officially married.

A string quartet played throughout the service and reception which followed after.

The intimate group of just family and friends enjoyed a three course mean, a “massive cake” and slept in the castle after the evening wound down.

Lance-Black and Daley announced their engagement in 2015 with a traditional announcement in The Times, two years after Daley came out in 2013.

The 22-year-old Olympian and 42-year-old Oscar-winning screen writer have been together for four years.

Daley recently faced controversy after he was accused of having an affair by a number of media outlets when a video of him stripping was leaked online.

The athlete admitted that he had sexted and sent explicit videos when he and Lance-Black were on a seven-month break.

They have since released a video together insisting that the two were “good” and that the relationship was as strong as ever.

A source close to the couple reportedly told the Sun that friends and family were excited for the wedding, but thought they should move “slowly” after the controversy.

The source said: “It’ll be a lovely occasion and they are very excited, but some friends think they might be better taking things slowly after everything they’ve been through.

“It’s been a tough six months for them. They had a bit of a break and have just started to rebuild their relationship.

“Marriage might put extra pressure on them,” they added.
