Famous names from the worlds of movies and television have turned out for the wedding of Billie Piper and fellow actor Laurence Fox.

The pair tied the knot in a 50 minute ceremony at the Parish Church of St Mary's in Easebourne, West Sussex.

Piper, 25, wore a low-cut ivory formal wedding dress with a black coat draped over her shoulders.

She was accompanied by four bridesmaids in short purple dresses.

Those attending included Doctor Who star David Tennant, Fox's co-star in TV show Lewis, Kevin Whately, Piper's ex-husband Chris Evans and Fox's father and uncle, the actors James and Edward Fox.

Piper - who appeared in Doctor Who with Tennant - was five minutes early for the wedding, which took place about half a mile from the couple's £750,000 home in Midhurst.

The 29-year-old bridegroom arrived 45 minutes before the ceremony was due to start.

Flanked by friends, he made the short walk from the White Horse pub to the church past the throng of photographers and reporters.

Tennant, dressed in a flamboyant burgundy velvet suit, arrived at the church at the same time as Whately, to cheers from the public lining the road.

Fox and Piper met last December when they performed together in a stage production of Christopher Hampton's Treats.

What a nice way to end the year for Billie. I hope they have a long and happy marriage. I'm so anxious to see her return as Rose Tyler in "Doctor Who"......even if she doesn't have any scenes with the Doctor.

David sure does like the velvet suits. I've seen him where velvet a couple of times in the past.
