Man Utd and England star Harry Maguire marries childhood sweetheart Fern Hawkins in secret ceremony
MANCHESTER UNITED captain Harry Maguire has officially tied the knot with teenage sweetheart Fern Hawkins.
The couple wedded in secret at Crewe Registry Office on Thursday ahead of their fairytale wedding this summer.
United and England defender Maguire, 29, was spotted leaving the service wearing a white shirt and navy chinos with white trainers.
Meanwhile Fern, 29, left the venue separately in a cream blazer and trousers, with a matching white bag.
A huge ring was also visible on her ring finger.
Maguire headed straight to the Registry Office after finishing training at United's Carrington base this morning.

The couple had kept the details secret from all but their closest family and friends.
They’d texted the small group of loved ones earlier in the day to tell them to head to Crewe Registry Office, Cheshire.
The pair will take their marriage vows again in France this summer at a romantic ceremony held at a chateau.
Maguire and Fern who started dating as teenagers more than a decade ago, arrived shortly before 3pm.

Maguire was joined by his parents, Zoe and Alan, who travelled from their home near Sheffield, for the ceremony.
A source said: “They wanted to keep things very low key.
“They needed to be officially married before their wedding in France, but they’re seeing that as their big day.
"It will be amazing."
Maguire's sister Daisy, 21, and Megan Davison, wife of Maguire's England team-mate Jordan Pickford will be bridesmaids in France.
Maguire and Fern had been engaged since February 17, 2018, before officially tying the knot today in a low-key ceremony.
Maguire initially popped the question over four years ago during a getaway to Paris.
Fern gave birth to the couple's first child Lillie Saint Maguire, now three, on April 3, 2019, exactly nine months after England beat Colombia on penalties in the 2018 World Cup.
Then just over a year later in May 2020 the couple welcomed second daughter Piper Rose, now two, into the world.
The ceremony marks a happy ending to a miserable season on the field for Maguire, which saw him booed by England fans at Wembley in March.
The family were then rocked last month after Maguire received a sickening bomb threat.
Cheshire police with sniffer dogs were sent to Maguire and Fern's £4million mansion but fortunately found no evidence of any explosive material.
