Katherine Jenkins marries US filmmaker at Hampton Court Palace

Katherine Jenkins has married US filmmaker Andrew Levitas.

The Welsh classical singer tied the knot with the film director and artist (pictured) at Hampton Court Palace on Saturday evening (September 27), and the couple posed for photos outside the Surrey venue.

She tweeted afterwards: “Thank you for all your love & support. It’s already been such a special day & wanted to share my happiness with you xxx.”

The 34-year-old mezzo-soprano, who wore a white gown with a full skirt and a long veil for the ceremony, had to ask Buckingham Palace for permission to fly the Welsh Dragon flag over the historic building, reported the Daily Mirror.

Wedding guests were entertained by a harpist.

The couple went public with their relationship in March when 37-year-old director Andrew accompanied Katherine to Buckingham Palace to collect her OBE. They announced their engagement after six months of dating.

Katherine was previously engaged to Cardiff-born television presenter Gethin Jones, but the pair split up in early 2012.
