Real Housewives of Cheshire star Dawn Ward's daughter Taylor Ward, 23, has reportedly married Manchester City footballer Riyad Mahrez, 30, in a "secret ceremony".
The couple, who started dating in early 2020, got engaged in a sun-soaked proposal in Mykonos, Greece in June last year.
According to a source, the loved-up couple celebrated their marriage at a Muslim ceremony known as the Nikah.
They dressed all in white for the special day, and signed a contract that makes them legally married under Islamic law.
Guests watched as the couple confirmed their marriage by repeating the word “qubool,” which means “I accept,” three times.
Taylor and Riyad will also be taking part in a second wedding day to make their union legal in the UK, due to take place later this year.
A source told The Sun: “Riyad and Taylor are now legally married under Islamic law following their ceremony late last year.
“For them as a couple it was important to follow the traditions of his religion.
“The ceremony was short but sweet and has started them on their path to their second wedding which is very much going to be the main event.
“Taylor and Riyad are so excited and are very much in love,” the insider added.
OK! has contacted a representative for Taylor for a comment.
Taylor is the daughter of Real Housewives stars Dawn, 48, and retired footballer Ashley Ward, 51.
She has appeared several times on the series and has a close relationship with her dad and businesswoman mum, who is a successful interior designer.
Last year, Manchester City player Riyad spared no expense when he got down on one knee in front of his girlfriend.
The pair had been enjoying a lavish holiday on the Greek island with Taylor’s parents when Riyad presented Taylor with a sparkling £400,000 engagement ring following an intimate lunch with friends.
Riyad was previously married to Rita John, 29, for six years.
The exes share two daughters Inaya, five, and Ayla, four.
Riyad and Taylor now live in their £2million house in Cheshire near the latter’s parents and friends.
