Logan's love match
Kenny Logan and Gabby Yorath
The happy couple "on top of the world"
Rugby player Kenny Logan has tied the knot with TV presenter Gabby Yorath at a star-studded wedding ceremony in a Scottish village church.

The pair got married at Logie Kirk in Blairlogie, Stirling, in front of their families and a host of celebrities - including England rugby captain Lawrence Dallaglio and Sky Sports presenter Kirstie Gallacher.

Following the traditional Church of Scotland ceremony, the couple were whisked off to the Gleneagles Hotel for a reception with 500 guests.

Wasps winger and Scottish international Logan, 29, wore traditional highland dress, including a kilt in the Logan family tartan, as did many of the guests.

The bride, 28, who presents ITV's On the Ball football programme and is the daughter of former Leeds and Wales defender Terry Yorath, wore an ivory-coloured wedding dress created by Italian designer Ben De Lisi.

She arrived at the church two minutes late with her father in a cream-coloured 1935 SS Airline Saloon car.

Diamond choker

About 100 members of the public gathered outside the church and applauded as the bride emerged from the car wearing the sleeveless, round-necked dress with matching veil.

She also wore a diamond choker and matching bracelet.

She entered the church to the tune of Flower of Scotland with her father and her sister Louise, who was her bridesmaid.

About 250 guests attended the half-hour church service, conducted by the minister Regine Cheyne, and sang the hymns Morning has Broken, Amazing Grace and Lord of the Dance.

The best man was Robbie Mailer, who plays for Logan's former rugby team, Stirling County.

The bible reading was given by his current Wasps team mate Alex King.

As they made their way out of the church gates, the couple were showered in confetti thrown by gathered locals and when asked how he felt, Logan replied: "Top of the world."
