Saturdays’ singer Una Healy has married England rugby star Ben Foden in a ceremony in Ireland.
The pair tied the knot on Saturday 30 June, with Una’s bandmates, Mollie King, Vanessa White, Frankie Sandford and Rochelle Wiseman, as bridesmaids.
The girls were seen in lilac gowns, however 30-year-old new mum Una shielded her dress due to an up-coming magazine deal.
Following the ceremony, guests took to Twitter to send their best wishes, with Mollie posting:
“Had THE most incredible day! What a beautiful bride @UnaTheSats made, or Mrs Foden should I say . Loving my new brother in law @ben_foden.”
Fellow Saturday Rochelle, who is set to marry her beau, JLS singer Marvin Humes, followed suit, tweeting:
“Never been so proud of anyone! My @UnaTheSats was THE most beautiful bride, very emotional, @ben_foden wins best speech! Love you both xx.”
Ben and Una got together in 2008, after being introduced via their agents.
They announced they were expecting their first child back in October, with Foden proposing a few months later.

As well as the album cover, the girls have also announced that there will be individual group member sleeves when you order from HMV, so die-hard Sats fans can get the album with their favourite girl on the front cover.
Frankie, Una, Mollie, Rochell and Vanessa have worked with an all-star cast of producers on the new record, including Space Cowboy, Steve Mac , David Eriksen and Brian Higgins – plus Gym Class Hero’s Travie McCoy.
On Your Radar hits shops on 21 November 2011.
The girls put and end to rumours
Girlband The Saturdays have denied split rumours, after reports emerged that they were to take a ‘two year break’.
The girls took to Twitter to dismiss the claims directly, with Una Healy, who recently announced that she is expecting her first child with rugby player boyfriend Ben Foden, posting:
“Why do people start silly rumours? We are definitely not going on a break. We have loads of things planned for 2012 – baby on board too.
“I normally wouldn’t rise to rumours but it’s not fair on our fans to read and believe the lies. Trust me, Team Sats, we ain’t going nowhere!”
Her bandmates Rochelle Wiseman and Frankie Sandford also posted comments in an attempt to clear things up, with Sandford writing:
“2 year break my a**e! If only you guys could see our schedule! 2 days off is a struggle! Lol.
“Let’s not make the excitement of the benuna baby all doom and gloom!”
“Just heard some v strange rumours that we are having a 2 year break… oh pah lease!!
“Not true in any way shape or form… We are busier now than we have ever ever been and that’s how we like it! So just thought I’d squash any split rumours.”
The Saturdays are currently in Iceland filming the video for their new single, My Heart Takes Over.
Una's reportedly three months pregnant
Saturdays’ star Una Healy has revealed that she is expecting her first child with England rugby player boyfriend, Ben Foden.
The 29-year-old singer told the Mirror that she was “really happy”, but also let slip that the news was “totally unexpected”.
The girls have a busy few months ahead, with a new album release and an upcoming tour, but Una has said that she will continue to work “right up until she’s fit to burst”.
Una’s bandmates, Mollie, Frankie, Rochelle and Vanessa, issued a joint statement in reaction to the news, saying:
“We’re so excited for Una! We can’t wait to have a sixth Saturday.
“Ben and Una are going to be fab parents.”
The couple have been dating since 2008, when they were introduced by each other’s agents.
Una said back in 2009 that 26-year-old Ben’s agent “got in touch with my agent, who then sent me an email asking if I’d like to meet with him.”
“I really thought it was some kind of joke. It certainly wasn’t the way I expected to meet a guy.”
The Saturdays are currently at Number 3 in the charts with their latest track, All Fired Up.
