Downton Abbey’s Allen Leech marries Jessica Blair Herman in Californian wedding

Downton Abbey‘s Allen Leech married actress, Jessica Blair, in a Californian wedding.

The couple tied the knot at the start of the month and had some huge Hollywood celebs at their special day.

The Dublin native announced his engagement early last year, after dating Jessica for two years.

The celebs wed on 5th January at Alisal Ranch and Resort in California.

Downton Abbey stars, Michelle Dockery and Dan Stevens, both attended the wedding, as well as Allen’s Bohemian Rhapsody co-star, Rami Malek.

The actor revealed to Hello! Magazine that the Irish weather followed him to Cali, as they experienced some heavy rain which the string quartet booked for the ceremony couldn’t play in.

Allen told the publication that Glee stars, Darren Criss and Lea Michele, were happy to sing for their special day instead.

“Everyone rallied round, the weather only made the day more epic. Darren and Lea are such great people and great friends, and they said, ‘Absolutely no problem’ when we told them the situation,” he told the publication.

“We grabbed a guitar and they ended up singing the music for our ceremony. Everyone said they had never been to a wedding where everyone was singing before the bride had even arrived,” the actor joked.

The 37-year-old also opened up about the love he has for his new wife: “That moment of seeing Jessica, oh my God, it was magical. It will stay with me forever.”

“As soon as I met him there was a sense of ease and comfort, that I knew marriage would be uncomplicated and beautiful with him,” Jessica added.
