Good things happen to good people.
And one of the most delightful celebrities you could ever meet in Craig Philips recently got married to the love of his life.
Known for winning the very first installment of the reality television show Big Brother, Craig Philips has developed himself into more than just a reality star.
Trained as a bricklayer and in DIY, Craig Philips has used his fame and notoriety in the best possible way.
Till date, the forty-six-year-old has raised over a million dollars for various charities and causes close to his heart.
A feat that is made all the more commendable if one considers the fact that Craig Philips isn’t a mainstream television star.
Nevertheless, the universe has paid Craig Phillips for all of his good deeds with his marriage to Laura Sherriff.
Craig Phillips tied the knot with his girlfriend of two years in an intimate ceremony in a castle in Cheshire.
The setting and tone of the event was a romantic and heart melting one as there was not a dry eye in the house.
The famous Peckerton Castle played host to the beautiful event which could also be described as luxurious.
The couple invited just two hundred of their family and friends to watch them solemnize their love.
The marriage ceremony took place in the banquet hall of the stunning, picturesque castle.
Craig Philips met Laura Sherriff when they were introduced by mutual friends about two years ago.
The couple’s relationship was a fairytale one as Philips proposed to his sweetheart barely a year after they first met.
The first winner of UK’s Big Brother got down on one knee at the top of Sydney Harbour bridge, eliciting tears from Laura Sherriff.
And it looks like Craig Philips has finally found a woman with a heart as big as his with the pair using their marriage as an avenue to do more good.
Instead of accepting gifts, the newlyweds asked their friends and family to donate the money for presents to Helen & Douglas House.
Helen & Douglas House was the hospice facility that cared for Laura’s brother Daniel when he was diagnosed with a brain tumor as a baby.
Laura Sherriff will also be putting her wedding dress up for auction and will be donating the proceeds to the facility.
Laura looked divine in a strapless form-fitting white gown with a feathery fishtail skirt to get married in.
She paired her strapless number with a long delicate veil and a cropped fluffy white jacket to keep out the wintry chill.
Her fiance opted for a brown suit, white shirt, and dark red bowtie.
The two seemed to be on the same wavelength as his bowtie matched the velvet suit his best woman wore.
The couple’s five bridesmaids wore long halterneck silk dresses in the same deep red color and matching furry capelets, each carrying red and white posies decorated with pinecones to fit in with the color scheme.
For a man who donated all £70,000 of his winnings to childhood friend Joanne Harris, who needed ongoing medical treatment for her Down’s Syndrome, a fairytale wedding is a fair return.
Congratulations to the happy couple.
