Jeremy Clarkson gets emotional over clip of daughter's first dance at stunning wedding

Jeremy Clarkson described his daughter Emily's wedding as the 'happiest day of my life' as he shared unseen footage from her first dance.

The former Top Gear presenter, 62, watched the 27-year-old marry her boyfriend of nine years, Alex Andrew, on Sunday.

Jeremy appeared to be full of emotion as he posted a clip from her big day online.

Emily has shared snippets from her stunning wedding day - which took place in the countryside - but Jeremy appeared to give his 4.7million fans a further glimpse at the events which unfolded.

He posted a video of Emily and her new husband twirling around the dance floor, shortly after they said 'I do'.

Emily looked incredible in a floating white gown, while the groom looked smart in his tailored suit.

The pair gazed into each other's eyes as they moved around the ballroom, which was decked out with huge disco balls and lots of glitzy lights.

"The happiest day of my life," Jeremy captioned the video of their first dance.

The proud dad also posted a black-and-white snap of himself and his daughter, with a heartfelt message.

He gushed: "Fathers. I cannot even begin to describe how wonderful it is when your daughter gets married to someone you like. I am being very unmanly about this weekend. It was just sublime. I have never been happier."

Over on Emily's Instagram Story, she shared some more snaps from the wedding.

She posted a gorgeous candid photo of herself laughing, which she captioned: "Best day of my life."

Another image saw Emily write: "So far marriage just feels like a massive happy hangover."

Over the weekend, she posted the first pictures of herself and new husband, titling the snaps: "MARRIED!!!"

Emily, who goes my Em Clarkson online, looked stunning in a vintage inspired high-necked wedding dress that featured intricate beading detail.

The bride completed her classic look with a floorlength lace veil, with her blonde locks scraped back into an elegant pony tail.

Emily met Dublin-born publicist Alex, 29, at Glastonbury Festival and announced their engagement in March 2020.

She declared at the time that Alex made her the 'happiest girl in the whole wide world.'

Her notoriously grumpy dad Jeremy even gave his blessing as he said he was a 'very very happy father.'
