It was the most heartfelt performance of Ricki-Lee Coulter's career - crooning just for her new husband Richard Harrison as they performed the bridal waltz at their lavishly romantic wedding.

'I wish we could have frozen time to stay in that moment,' recalls the singer-songwriter and TV presenter. 'It was magical, absolutely a dream come true, the greatest day of my life.

'You know, we soaked up every moment and it was amazing, but time flew past. One minute, we were walking down the aisle, and the next minute, it was 4.30am and we were still dancing, kicking up our heels and flicking our hair!'


From start to finish, Ricki-Lee and Rich were determined to marry just the way they wanted, surrounded by their nearest and dearest, in their favourite place in the world: Paris, the City of Light.

It's where the couple spent their first real holiday together four years ago, so a return trip to tie the knot seemed just the ticket - especially once they found their ideal venue, the historic Chateau Bouffemont.

'The grandeur, the drama, the beauty of it was all too perfect,' laughs the Can't Touch It songstress. 'I've always said that meeting Rich was like finding my Prince Charming, so why not make our wedding day a fairytale too?'
