Just when you thought 2020 would pass wholly bereft of harmlessly distracting content, the internet has seized gleefully on Lily Allen's iconic Las Vegas wedding. The Smile singer, 35, beaming ear-to-ear, shared selfies last night of the Big Day to her social media accounts: an ecstatic Lily Allen and beau David Harbour flanked by the obligatory Elvis impersonator; Lily Allen and beau David Harbour guffawing in front of a seedy Vegas lashes bar; Lily Allen minus beau David Harbour but in full white wedding regalia demolishing an In-N-0ut burger. No paps, just snaps. But for those asking "David Who? Las What Now?
In-N-Where?", or simply what's the sitch with this hitch, here is a sauce-soaked digest. Harbour club The beau is reportedly a bae. David Harbour, 45, Hawkins police chief and Millie Bobby Brown's fictional foster father in the hit Netflix sensation Stranger Things, wooed Allen last year by wearing fake Lily Allen merch he bought on eBay to their first date. Yes, he wore a T-shirt with Lily Allen's face on it to a date with Lily Allen. In January, they attended a Bafta tea party together.
The impressively jawed actor (it's usually hidden behind a scruffy-chic beard), who also starred in the Hellboy reboot and Scarlett Johansson's Marvel superhero vehicle Black Widow, spent quarantine in Croatia with Allen and her two children, whom she shares with ex-husband Sam Cooper. The pair's engagement was rumoured in May, when Lily shared an Instagram photo and enthusiastic fans noted that her ring was on a certain finger. Cute. Waking up in Vegas The "I Do" heard around the world took place at the Graceland Wedding Chapel, which is where luminaries like Jon Bon Jovi and Billy Ray Cyrus (father of pop star Miley) have also tied the knot. Court records show the wedding took place on Monday. "In a wedding officiated by the king himself, the people's princess wed her devoted, low born, but kind credit card holder in a beautiful ceremony lit by the ashen skies courtesy of a burning state miles away in the midst of a global pandemic," Harbour wrote in an Instagram post on Wednesday. Allen wore a short, double-breasted Dior dress in white for the night. Burger dressing A white Dior dress combined with a famously sloppy burger is, in theory, an odd match up. But the lack of convention is so clearly part of this occasion's charm that all is not only forgiven, it is actively fawned over. "Lily Allen inhaling an In-N-Out burger in her Dior wedding dress is a mood", concluded one internet onlooker. "Get this s*** framed", added another fan. "I want it on a pillow." The sight of the Not Fair chanteuse in her Sixties-inspired designer dress tucking into a dirty burger outside a diner is alone enough to pluck on the nostalgia strings. Further pictures of Harbour, Allen (wearing a patterned face mask, just to be Covid-secure) and her two children tucking into the full take-out meal is enough to make the heart grow three sizes. Probably. Or, at the very least, keep you vaguely preoccupied for a fleeting moment. Lily Allen marries Stranger Things star David Harbour in amazing Las Vegas wedding Lily Allen got married to David Harbour in Vegas. Picture: Instagram Happy couple Lily Allen and David Harbour have shared photos from their wedding day. Lily Allen has married Stranger Things actor David Harbour in Las Vegas this week.

The newlyweds later celebrated by getting burgers from famous burger restaurant In-N-Out. David - who plays Hooper in Stranger Things - also shared photos on his own Instagram page. He captioned it: "In a wedding officiated by the king himself, the people's princess wed her devoted, low born, but kind credit card holder in a beautiful ceremony lit by the ashen skies courtesy of a burning state miles away in the midst of a global pandemic. "Refreshments were served at a small reception following." This is Lily's second wedding after she married Sam Cooper in 2011. The star was pregnant at the time at the time and the ceremony took place in Crantham, Gloucestershire in a small church. The couple split in May 2018 after Lily admitted to cheating on her husband. She told Vulture at the time: "I lost my sense of self. I lost my identity. I was being a bad mum. I was being bad at my job. I'd wake up on a tour bus in the middle of Wisconsin and be so hung-over. "I cheated on my husband. All I wanted to do was be with my kids. I wasn't even making any money." Lily then went on to find love with DJ Merdian Dan, but the pair split shortly before she met David.
