Britain's Prince Harry marries U.S. actress Meghan Markle
Britain's Prince Harry and U.S. actress Meghan Markle smiled, laughed, cried and held hands during their wedding ceremony at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle Saturday.

The bride wore a white, Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy gown, which was slightly off the shoulder with long sleeves, a train, diamond tiara and veil.

The couple, now officially known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, chose Cleave and Company to craft their wedding rings. Harry's is a platinum band with a textured finish and Markle's was created from a piece of Welsh gold Harry's grandmother -- Queen Elizabeth II -- bestowed upon her.

Harry's father Prince Charles walked the former Suits star down the aisle because her own dad Thomas Markle is battling health issues and was not able to attend the ceremony.

Harry's brother Prince William served as his best man and William's elder children -- Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 2 -- were among those selected to be bridesmaids and page boys.

Harry and his only sibling wore the frockcoat uniform of the Blues and Royals for the occasion.

Among the estimated 600 guests to attend the wedding were Elton John, Oprah Winfrey, Idris Elba, James Blunt, James Corden, Serena Williams, Priyanka Chopra, Carey Mulligan, Patrick J. Adams, Gina Torres, George and Amal Clooney, and David and Victoria Beckham. The queen, her husband Prince Philip, William's wife Kate Middleton, her sister Pippa Matthews and Markle's mother Doria Ragland also helped the couple celebrate their happy day.

A children's choir sang religious hymns and gospel singers performed a moving rendition of "Stand By Me."

A reception is to be held at St. George's Hall at Windsor Castle after the church service.

Harry and Markle got engaged in November after dating for more than a year. The prince proposed as they were cooking dinner during a quiet night at home.
