Get us to the church on time! Showbiz pals including Mollie King and Marvin Humes arrive for Una Healy's wedding to Ben Foden

By Colette Fahy

Una Healy brought the world of showbiz to her hometown of Thurles in Ireland for her wedding today.

The Saturdays beauty and rugby star Ben Foden tied the knot in a quaint country church in Tipperary where Una’s bandmates acted as bridesmaids.

Mollie King, Rochelle Wiseman, Vanessa White and Frankie Sandford looked stunning in full length lilac dresses and bouquets of white flowers as they made their way into the church along with the other bridesmaids.

Marvin Humes looked dapper as he arrived at the church for the wedding of Una Healy and Ben Foden while bridesmaid Frankie Sandford was stunning in lilac

Mollie had a big smile and wave for waiting fans and photographers as she arrived at the church in her car.

JLS’ Marvin Humes – who is engaged to Rochelle –looked dapper in a grey, three-piece suit and blue tie as he arrived for the ceremony.

No doubt the couple’s five-month-old daughter Aoife will have been front and centre during the ceremony today.

While the bridesmaids and guests were happy to smile and wave to waiting fans, the stunning bride and her handsome groom were kept under wraps to protect their exclusive magazine deal.

Una and Ben along with her bandmates were spotted at the wedding rehearsal yesterday.

The 30-year-old looked happy and relaxed as she mingled with family and friends outside the church afterwards- at one point sharing a tender hug with her fiancé.

The happy couple took turns carrying Aoife, who looked adorable in a babygro and pale yellow cardigan.

Una looked lovely in a white dress patterned with poppies, and kept comfortable in flat sandals.

Ben was casual but smart in a navy jumper and jeans.

Mollie also opted for a floral dress, which she teamed with a long blue cardigan and tan platform heels.

Rochelle was pretty in a mint jacket and pale lilac trousers, while Vanessa flashed her legs in a blue and white embroidered dress.

Frankie was laid-back in skinny jeans and a dark green top.

Speaking about the wedding recently, Una, 30, said: ‘I want a nice, laid-back, fun day.’

Crowds of well-wishers gathered in Thurles to see local girl Una tie the knot

Una chose a lilac ribbon for her flowergirl to match the colour of her bridesmaids dresses

Healy and Wiseman, threw a joint hen party in May with their bandmates, partying at London's Rose Club but last night she settled for a quiet toast with a few friends.

The mother-of-one uploaded a couple pictures to her Twitter page via Instagram, keeping her followers up to speed, she tweeted: 'Having a last single drink with my old pal smarties!! X'

In another snap Una and her girl pals were pictured all holding colourful drinks in their hands, and the caption read: 'All the single ladies!!X'
