Chris Evans made sure of a pucker wedding celebration yesterday by
planting a big smacker on new wife Natasha Shishmanian.

The Radio 2 DJ pulled faces as he laughed and joked at a bash attended
by 200 guests, including ex-wife Billie Piper, in Portugal.

Chris, 41, and golfer and parttime model Natasha, 27, tied the knot
at a registry office in Guildford on Saturday.

But they wanted to have their vows blessed at a Catholic church at
Santa Barbara, in the Algarve.

Natasha, who is half-Armenian, yesterday wore a stunning white
floor-length dress and a garland of white flowers in her hair.

Her husband, who is worth an estimated pounds 44million, wore a white
suit for the ceremony.

The couple then travelled in a 1950s Pontiac to the Alambique
restaurant near Vale Do Lobo for their reception.

The venue has a special significance for the couple.

It is the spot where Chris proposed to Natasha and the restaurant
owner, Adelino Santos, is a good friend of Evans. Natasha is the DJ’s
third wife.

He wed Billie in 2001, when the former Dr Who star was just 18,
in a pounds 200 ceremony at the Little Church of the West in Las Vegas.

They divorced on May 31 but remain good friends.

His first marriage to television presenter Carol McGiffen ended
in 1998.

Golf fan Chris met Natasha last August during ITV’s celebrity golf
tournament The All Star Cup in Newport, south Wales.

The pair became inseparable and in June Chris sought the blessing of
Natasha’s wealthy parents, Sarah and Aram, for the wedding.
