Sir Rod Stewart was proudly beaming as he celebrated his son Liam Stewart and long-term partner Nicole Artukovich getting hitched at their lively family wedding.

The 79-year-old Maggie May rocker was in high spirits as he joined all eight of his children to witness Liam, 29, marry Nicole at St. Ignatius Church in Dubrovnik, Croatia, on Friday. Rod Stewart, famed for his hit 'Sailing', revelled in the festivities.

Accompanied by his wife Penny Lancaster, who dazzled in a lilac satin dress featuring a bold thigh-high split, the wedding was a harmonious occasion despite the presence of Rod's ex-wife Rachel Hunter, Liam's mother.

The entire Stewart clan, including Sarah, Kimberly, Ruby, Renee, Sean, Alastair, and Aiden, were seen enjoying the nuptials as they toasted to Liam and Nicole's union in what was described as a heartfelt and merry celebration.

Sharing more updates from the special day, Liam re-posted some clips and photos on his Instagram page, including the moment him and new wife Nicole shared their first dance.
