The Irish actor, who played Freddie Mercury's manager and friend Paul Prenter in the Queen's biopic, admitted that he would never forget the moment that he saw his wife as she walked down the aisle.
He said hello! magazine: & # 39; That moment to see Jessica, oh my God, it was magical. It will stay with me forever. & # 39;
The couple had planned a sun-drenched wedding for their California ceremony, which was organized by Jessica's mother, but they ended with heavy rainfall on the day.

Allen and Jessica suffered adversity when the string quartet that they had hired could not perform because of the rain.
Fortunately, Lea and Darren stepped on the board and entertained the guests.
He said: "Darren and Lea are such wonderful people and good friends, and they said" Absolutely no problem "when we told them the situation.
& # 39; We grabbed a guitar and finally we sang the music for our ceremony. & # 39;

All was neat for the occasion, wearing a navy Armani suit, crisp white shirt and burgundy bow tie.
Interview: The couple spoke in the last issue of Hello! Magazine
Jessica is an actress and has appeared on TV shows including Modern Family, New Girl and American Crime Story.
The bride admitted that there was a spark between her and Allen as soon as they met.
She told the magazine: "As soon as I met him, there was a sense of ease and consolation that I knew the marriage would be uncomplicated and beautiful with him."
The couple announced their engagement on Valentine's Day last year.
To keep the news secret, Allen revealed that it was a while ago because he thanked the starlet because he had said yes.
Sharing a cut of the couple cuddled against each other, with Jessica proudly showing off her diamond ring, he wrote: "Happy Valentine's Day." The first as a fiancée! & # 39; (And no, I did not do it today, it's been a while ago.) & # 39;
