The Scottish star shared his wedding snaps on social media, with his new wife wearing a beautiful white off-the-shoulder gown.

Dougie opted for a navy suit and beige suit trousers for his wedding day look.

In one photo, the newlyweds starred adoringly at each other and in a second picture Fiona beamed as he placed a kiss on her cheek.

He captioned the post: “So this happened yesterday…⁦Fiona Barratt made me the happiest man in the world when she agreed to be Mrs V.”

His fans were delighted for the happy couple, with one writing: “Congratulations Dougie! Wishing you both a long and beautiful life together!”

“Congratulations and great choice getting married at the Cromlix Hotel too,” a second said.

A third added: “Huge congratulations Dougie! Incredibly happy for you both.”

The drummer turned Sportscene presenter was married previously to opera singer Elizabeth McCormack, with whom he had three sons Finley, Angus and Hamish.

But he’s found a second chance at love with Fiona.

Beaming, the happy couple looked smitten as they posed for pictures outside of Andy Murray’s 16-bed Victorian mansion in Dunblane.

Huge 90s band Deacon Blue look very different as they reunite for UK tour 29 years after they first split

The group is known for a string of 90s hits.

The six-piece look uncrecognisable these days – especially since they’ve lost and gained a few members.

Ricky Ross, James Prime, Lorraine McIntosh, Dougie Vipond, Gregor Philp and Lewis Gordon currently make up the roster.

Past members include Graeme Kelling, Ewen Vernal, Mick Slaven, Scott Fraser, Taj Wyzgowski, Ged Grimes and Chris Henderson.

Their first album Raintown achieved moderate success upon its 1987 release, peaking at number 14 in the UK.

But their second record, When The World Knows Your Name, shot straight to number one.

Its lead single Real Gone Kid was even nominated for a Brit Award in the British Single of the Year category.

But Deacon Blue were beaten by the soft rock band Fairground Attraction, with their track Perfect.

Despite going on hiatus in 1994, they reformed in 1999 and have kept making music ever since.

The group released their tenth studio album just last year, titled Riding On The Tide of Love, and recently performed at BBC Radio 2 In The Park.

They boast 34.8k Instagram followers, having built up a dedicated fanbase over the years.
