Jennifer Saunders’ daughter Freya Edmonson has married her fiancé Ryan Macphail in a stylish black dress at a registry office ceremony over the weekend.

The 31-year-old yoga teacher, whose father is comic actor Adrian Edmondson, announced the news of her marriage to partner Ryan on Instagram on Sunday.

‘Legally bound 🖤💐,’ she captioned the photos, which showed the married couple standing with their arms wrapped around one another, smiling, at the top of the steps to the building in Islington, London.

Mum Jennifer’s comedy partner and recent Death On the Nile co-star Dawn French sent her congratulations to Freya and Ryan, commenting: ‘Awwww. Yes. Lovely xx’

With Ryan in a three-piece blue suit, white shirt and spotty undone neckerchief, Freya bucked convention in a black, knee-length dress with matching ankle-strap heels and carried a small bunch of handpicked white flowers.

She wore her hair in an artfully undone updo with loose strands around her face and dangling earrings.

In a sweet nod to family, Freya’s 1960s Julian Rose gown was inherited from her late grandmother, according to MailOnline.

Ryan proposed in April 2021, with Freya proudly showing off the ‘most epic elf queen ring’ as she shared the news with her followers.

‘Always knew we were in it for the long haul but it’s nice to have a wee party too,’ she wrote.

Jennifer, 63, and Ade, 65, also share two older daughters, Ella, 36, and Beattie, 34, after getting hitched in 1985.

Ade was previously married to first wife, Anna, for three years in the late 1970s.

The comedian’s popular show The Young Ones, in which he starred with the late Rik Mayall, Nigel Planer, Christopher Ryan and Alexei Sayle, recently received a trigger content warning ahead of its release on BritBox.

The streaming service added a disclaimer to the series which is now being flagged for ‘offensive racial and homophobic language that may offend’.

Last year Ade, who played Vyyan, explained that the show wouldn’t be brought back today because producers wouldn’t be able to get to grips with the storyline.

‘Not because of cancel culture, but because there are too many executives and they wouldn’t have understood the script,’ he told The Times.

‘In the days of The Young Ones, it was one. Our USP was trying to concoct people that everyone would hate.’
