Mark Owen got married yesterday (08.11.09).

The Take That singer wed long-term partner Emma Ferguson - with who he has two children, Elwood, three, and Willow, 11 months - in a ceremony at Cawdor church in the Scottish Highlands that was attended by his bandmates Gary Barlow, Jason Orange and Howard Donald.

However, despite recent speculation, former group member Robbie Williams failed to attend the church service and was not believed to have been at the reception, held at nearby Cawdor Castle.

The village of Cawdor was said to be awash with excitement at the celebrity wedding day, with fans lining The Streets for hours to catch a glimpse of the singer and his bride.

However, many were left disappointed as the couple exited the church and walked through an archway made by the wedding party which hid them from the view of the gathered crowd after the ceremony.

Elaine Brown, who was among more than 500 fans waiting outside the church, said: "They didn't even let us see the happy couple. I know it's their special day but they could have let us have a glimpse."

Actress Emma - who has been engaged to the 'Greatest Day' singer since 2006 - kept the groom waiting for 25 minutes, arriving at the church at 4.55pm.

Following the church service, Mark and Emma were taken to their reception by a vintage Volkswagen camper van. The couple reportedly chose the location for the wedding as they have had many happy holidays in the area. The wedding had reportedly been in the planning for two years.

Take That were expected to sing together at the wedding, with Mark posting on his website: "No doubt once the boys have had a few drinks we will get into song."
