Fifi Geldof, the oldest child of philanthropist and musician Sir Bob Geldof, is on cloud nine after marrying her longtime beau Andrew Robertson.

The pair said “I do” at the St Mary Magdalene and St Lawrence church in Kent, England on August 3rd.

The sentimental setting is also the same church Fifi’s younger sister Peaches Geldof wed in 2012 and tragically, was laid to rest just two years later after a heroin overdose.

Fifi’s late mother Paula Yates, who passed away from a heroin overdose in 2000, is also buried on the grounds and had her funeral there.

Peaches’ widower Thomas Cohen attended the event with his two sons Phaedra, four and Astala, three, in tow.

Thomas Cohen put on a brave face as he revisited the church where he wed and farewelled his late wife, Peaches Geldof.

The 26-year-old opted for a stylish three-piece suit, which he teamed with a rucksack.

Since his wife’s heartbreaking death, Thomas has remained close to the star’s family including her father Sir Bob Geldof and her sisters Tiger Lily, 20, Pixie, 25, Fifi, 33.

The once fractured family have banded together and helped Thomas raise his two young sons.

Earlier in the year the father-of-two, who split from girlfriend Daisy Lowe in March, gave a raw interview on his grief.

“At the time I was 23. I had two children who needed to be taken care of and, in maybe early June 2014, I started to do that,” the singer explained to the Sunday Times.

“I just made the decision to start looking after myself and refused to lose myself and become a traumatised, grief-stricken single father who everyone’s going to look at and think I feel all of these things about,” Thomas added.

Following the ceremony, guests partied in a large marquee set up behind the church, which is around the corner from Sir Bob’s sprawling home.

Fifi, who works in PR, was a vision in a long-sleeved lace gown which she teamed with flowing, straight locks and a posy of stunning blooms.

Guests were instructed to leave their phones at the door, with Fifi recently revealing she wanted a low-key affair.

“Unlike my dear late sister’s wedding there won’t be a magazine deal, nor pictures of me in a white dress,” she explained to the Mail On Sunday.

Taking to Instagram shortly after her big day, Fifi posted a candid snap of the pair beaming from ear-to-ear.

“Happy hubby and wife. And a @mark_dutchy,” she penned alongside the snap.

This marks the second happy milestone for the Geldofs with Sir Bob marrying his partner of almost two decades, Jeanne Marine, in the South of France last year.
