High-profile guests rolled up to the ceremony in Escalades and luxury vehicles with hockey stars arriving by bus.

Phaneuf’s parents are from P.E.I. The Maple Leafs captain owns a waterfront home up the road from the church in New London.

Julie Walker, who went to school with Phaneuf’s parents on the Island was outside the church.

“Seems like a laid back, fancy affair. Quite impressed. Even a little bit of Island blood in you never leaves,” she said.

The Canadian-born Cuthbert has been dating Phaneuf, 28, since 2008. They got engaged last September.

Cuthbert has appeared in a variety of hit TV shows and movies including 24, Love Actually and Old School.
