SIMON Webbe has tied the knot with Aysen Kemal with his “tearful” bandmates by his side.
The Blue singer, 40, and his lifestyle blogger bride were married in a lavish ceremony at the Corinthia Hotel London in Westminster on Thursday.
Antony Costa, Duncan James and Lee Ryan even provided the night’s entertainment as they serenaded wedding guests with a medley of their greatest hits.
Ayshen, who was once in a girlband herself, wore an Enzoani wedding dress and customised veil for the intimate occasion.
Simon told HELLO! magazine: “This is the best day of my life – and Ayshen looks more beautiful than I have ever seen her before.”
Ayshen added: “I’m so happy. I can’t believe we’re married. I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of calling him my husband.”

Simon is the first member of the band, who formed in 2000, to walk down the aisle.
Lee, 35, admitted it was an emotional day, revealing: “I actually welled up a bit during the ceremony.”
The Sun Online exclusively revealed the couple’s wedding plans earlier this month.
Simon, 40, popped the girlfriend Ayshen in February 2017 while they were on holiday in Jamaica.
They had been dating a year and a half before he decided to surprise her with a plate of chocolate piping that read ‘will you marry me?’

Ayshen was a member of girl group Fe-Nix in 2008 and released a single called Lady Baby, but they never hit the big time.
Simon has a daughter, Alanah, born in 1996 to ex-girlfriend Nicola Jones, a Manchester shop assistant who inspired the 2007 single Grace.
