BBC Radio 1 DJ Greg James has married his partner, describing it as the "most incredible day of my life".

James, who revealed earlier this year that his girlfriend Bella Mackie had proposed to him in February, shared pictures from the wedding day on Instagram.

He wrote: "Bella and I got married and it was the most incredible day of my life.

"I think it was up there for her too. She is the best thing ever and I feel like I might actually burst with happiness."

Mackie wore a pale yellow dress with a twisted detail at the front with a small headpiece, while James opted for a blue suit.

In June, James, 32, stunned fans when he revealed he was in a relationship with Mackie, who previously wrote for The Guardian and Vice, and that they were set to tie the knot.

At the time, he said that "one of the main reasons for this happiness is because I met this person".

He said yes "immediately" when she proposed "because she is the smartest, funniest and most beautiful person I've ever met" but has largely kept their relationship out of the spotlight.

James took over his new role as the host of BBC Radio 1's Breakfast Show in August after job-swapping with Nick Grimshaw.

He had hosted the weekday 4pm-7pm drivetime slot on the station since 2012.
