Actress Ricki Lake tied the knot with her fiancé Ross Burningham on Sunday at a stunning cliffside ceremony.

The 53-year-old blushing bride glowed in a gushing Instagram post of the couple’s big day, less than a year after getting engaged. 

‘We did it! 1/2/22 Ross and I said I DO!,’ the Hairspray star penned in a celebratory social media caption.

The bride kept it ultra casual for her outdoor ceremony and was seen in photos rocking a printed yellow caftan with flowers tucked into her hair.

She is seen in snaps flashing her megawatt smile after exchanging vows with her newly minted husband while holding a pink and white bouquet flecked with greenery.

The diminutive star actually had to stand on a footstool during the ceremony, which took place on a tall cliff at sunset overlooking the Pacific ocean. 

A small group of close friends and family were on hand to witness the intimate nuptials and celebrate the new husband and wife.

Ricki and Ross had been dating for around six months before they got engaged earlier this year. 

In February of last year the star announced their engagement news on Instagram writing: ‘Friends, I’m so so so excited to share some good news! I’m engaged!’ 

She added: ‘This is Ross. He is my person. He is wonderful. I love him very much and I am so grateful I get to love and be loved so deeply by this stellar human.’

Ross took his time picking out the perfect sparkler to put on Lake’s finger, however, and it wasn’t until a few months later that he found the perfect diamond.

‘Well, friends, he put a ring on it!’ Ricki captioned a photo of her holding up her new ring.

She added at the time: ‘Engaged to my magnificent king. I am officially the happiest woman in the land. My dearest Ross, I choose you today and everyday!’ 

Ricki has two children, Milo, 24, and Owen, 20, who she shares with her ex-husband, Rob Sussman.

Rob and Ricki got married in Las Vegas in 1994 and remained together for a decade during which they welcomed their children before getting divorced.

'Friends, I'm so so so excited to share some good news! I'm engaged!' Lake penned when she got engaged. 'This is Ross. He is my person. He is wonderful. I love him very much and I am so grateful I get to love and be loved so deeply by this stellar human.'

Then in 2012 she tied the knot with jewelry designer Christian Evans after a three-year romance – but that marriage was doomed to tragedy.

She filed for divorce in 2014 and it was finalized in 2015, but the romance between them lingered until the autumn of 2016.

However early in 2017 he committed suicide, prompting Ricki to reveal to that the collapse of their marriage had been due to his bipolar disorder.

When he was in manic flight he would become convinced that he was able to ‘cure cancer with his hands’ or ‘fly,’ she told People.

She explained that during the period after their divorce when they were still a couple ‘He wasn’t stable, and he was so fragile.’

Ricki, who last saw Christian just three days before his death, said: ‘But I was still in love with him, so there was something romantic about it. I wanted to save him.’
