Ruth, whose stage name is Ruthie Phoenix, was dressed in an original 1950's ivory gown and carried a bouquet of passion roses.
Her grandparents, Councillor Sylvia Carr, George Carr and Joan Fung, contributed to an unconventional service of poetry, contemporary music, laughter and applause. Guests were welcomed to the church by friend and talented blues musician Marcus Bonfanti, and Sidmouth Town Band led a rendition of All You Need is Love as the service, which was led by the Reverend Dave Brown, came to a close.
The wedding reception at Kennaway House included performances by a number of artists, including blues pianist Paddy Milner, and stand-up comedy routines from Ruth's brother, Paul.
The lively evening concluded with the release of Chinese lanterns from a starlit, sandy Jacob's Ladder beach.
