Mac laughed at TV host Lorraine's joke that he had defied the so-called Strictly curse and said that there was no time for Strictly-style moves in the couple's first dance.
It was a special moment for us," the star, who is on stage in Andrew Lloyd Webber's touring production of Sunset Boulevard, said. We've both been so busy, fortunately. Carley's in Les Mis, I was in rehearsals for Sunset. We took three days off to get married and then straight back into rehearsals.

They say they'd only ever imagined their wedding outdoors, and it certainly made for a beautiful occasion. And Danny said the moment was so wonderful, he asked his bride to slow down so he could enjoy watching her walk down the aisle towards him.
He told the mag: I actually put my hand out to tell her to slow down as it was all going too quickly and I wanted to cherish it. Carley thought I waved and so she waved back. Carley described the day as "magical".

It felt like our plan had come together perfectly and I was about to say 'I do' to my best friend in front of everyone we loved. The whole wedding was planned by close friend Mark Welch and his wife Catherine, who was Carley's chief bridemaid.
Danny made sure Carley felt special by sending her a bespoke diamond necklace, from Chiswick-based Marmalade Jewellery, on the morning on their wedding. Carley gave him a diamond tiepin which he wore in his cravat, and the same company designed their wedding bands. And as an extra surprise, Danny organised for a VW camper van to take Carley to the venue with her dad, bridesmaids, and flower girls. The outdoor ceremony looked gorgeous Image: The words in both songs mean so much to us. Work hard for what you want but enjoy it I started to think, what do I want to do, what will make me happy, and I've had the best year since.
Now I'm like Ore Oduba. He's a superfan," he said.
