Ulrika weds Mr Right
Lance Gerrard-Wright and Ulrika Jonsson
The couple met on a television show
Ulrika Jonsson has married her Mr Right - Lance Gerrard-Wright - at a ceremony in Sweden.

The Swedish television presenter tied the knot with Gerrard-Wright on the island of Varmdo on Saturday, her 36th birthday.

They met on the ITV1 show Mr Right last autumn, in which 15 women competed for the chance to date the eligible bachelor.

He failed to find romance among the contestants but ended up with Jonsson, the programme's presenter.

The wedding ceremony held in her garden was attended by 40 family and friends.

The bride wore a silk lace-beaded dress, made by Alice Temperley, and shoes by Jimmy Choo.

She was given away by eight-year-old Cameron - her son from her first marriage to cameraman John Turnbull - who was dressed in Ralph Lauren.

Her husband, 35, the former equerry to the Duke of York, wore a morning suit.

Jonsson's other child - baby Bo, by former partner Markus Kempen, was bridesmaid and the groom's brother Rufus was best man.

The bride's ring was made of platinum, while the groom's was a traditional gold band.

The garden ceremony was mostly conducted in English and led by Lennart Sjostrom, the rector of the Swedish Church in London.

Guests at the reception in the Fagelbro Golf Club enjoyed caviar and Swedish herring, followed by lamb and blueberry pie.

The party continued at Jonsson's house with an additional 30 Swedish friends.

The television presenter's former partners include soccer star Stan Collymore and James Crossley - alias Hunter from the TV show Gladiators.

She also had a much publicised affair with England football coach Sven-Goran Eriksson.
