Dick Van Dyke and new bride Arlene Silver cut their wedding cake

Mail Online

With a showbiz career spanning six decades, he could probably afford to buy her a meringue dress.

Yet Dick Van Dyke's new wife Arlene Silver opted for a rather modest high street gown.

Make-up artist Arlene, 40, would have left the cast of My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding in shock, as she slipped into a simple, yet flattering burgundy dress and matching flower in her hair for her big day.

The summer frock was purchased from Anthropologie, the US equivalent of Urban Outfitters.

The lovebirds also defied convention with a wedding dessert.that was also rather discreet.

Instead of a decadent tiered cake, a new snapshot released by Hollywood Reporter from their Leap Day ceremony shows the happy couple posing with a small pudding, ready to slice open the icing.

It is the second time the Mary Poppins star has said 'I do', at the ripe old age of 86.

The couple first met six years ago in the green room at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, according to an interview the veteran star and his new wife gave to Rumorfi.

In a video of the chat, Van Dyke, who conquered the small screen as Dr Mark Sloane in the hugely popular Diagnosis Murder in the Nineties, says the pair married on February 29.

He said: 'Kind of on the spur of the moment, we decided Leap Day would be the best time to do it.'

The silver-haired legend, who charms each generation with his exuberant performance as chimney sweep Bert in the classic 1964 nanny film starring Julie Andrews, has been married once before.

He wed first wife Margie Willett in 1948 during a live broadcast of the radio show Bride and Groom
