Pop icons Girls Aloud have reunited in a rare moment at a star studded wedding, posing together looking utterly glam.
Despite splitting in 2013, the pop group behind hits like Long Hot Summer and Can’t Speak French have continued to be incredibly close.
They snapped a picture with TV personality Arthur Gourounlian, linking arms and smiling together in their rare public reunion since the group parted ways.
Fans commented that Sarah was ‘smiling down’ on this impromptu reunion as Arthur shared the snap on his Instagram.

Kimberly stunned in a modest dress covered in a red floral print, while Nicola beside her opted for a simple sage silk gown complementing her distinct red hair.
On the left Nadine kept things cool with her white button down ankle-grazing dress, accessorised with a brown belt and strappy heels.
Pulling out the showstopper was Cheryl in a caped sage and gold floor length gown, sweeping her hair up into a bun.
The band have not shared any further pictures of them together from the glamorous wedding at The Royal Horseguards Hotel and One Whitehall Place.
While fans loved the reunion, the comments also expressed sadness that Sarah was not able to be there with them.

Cheryl previously told Metro that there were no plans for a Girls Aloud reunion but fans should ‘never say never’.
She shared: ‘To be honest, we found out Sarah was sick because we’d sat down together to talk about how, if, and what we would like to do to celebrate the 20 years [of the band].
‘And then all that happened, and it changed the feeling of it. It just put a funny taste in my mouth.’
The Love Machine singer added: ‘‘I think more time would be needed before we even – none of us have even uttered a word [about] that. We just have spoken about Sarah. We’ve become really close together.’
