‘”I don’t think we were really prepared for it – although I’m not sure there’s much you can do to prepare yourself.
“You just get swept along in it and bowled along. But it does wear you down.”
A source told MailOnline: “‘It was a very small private affair with just a handful of close family and friends, including David, Victoria and three of the children.
“David was best man and did all the usual things the best man does like hold the rings and he was due to give a speech as well.
“Ted is in his 70s and Hilary is in her 60s. It was the second wedding for both of them so they didn’t want to make a fuss of it but the whole family was delighted to be there.”
