Hello! Magazine was exclusively invited to the knock-out New York wedding between boxing ace Amir Khan and his beautiful American fiancee Faryal Makhdoom at the grand Waldorf Astoria hotel.
The Bolton born boxer told Hello! how he is set to become a 'changed man' after marrying the political science student after a week long elaborate and energetic stunning Muslim ceremony.
The boxer, who just a month before his wedding day beat rival Julio Diaz in the ring, joked: "I had to get in there and tie the knot quickly, before I got beaten up in too many fights and lose my looks!"
Talking of his marriage to the 21-year-old he added: "I've lived the young life, I've done everything I've wanted to do. Now is the right time to settle down and start my own family.
"I've got to look after Faryal, so I won't be going out as much partying with my friends.
"I don't want that anymore - I want to do the family thing.
"I think I'll change as a person when I'm married and it'll be a big plus for me, I'll be able to be more focused on my job too."
The new Mrs Khan tells of her emotional dream wedding to the boxer and her imminent move to Bolton: "I'm so happy to be with the man I love and to spend the rest of my life with him - it's a new chapter in my life."

Amir Khan climbed off the canvas on Saturday night and into a world title fight later this year.
That bald statement of fact conveys nothing of the grinding effort of will and gut-wrenching defiance of pain which made possible a tumultuous victory over an archetypal Mexican warrior.
The courage required of Khan to complete this feat when it came to surviving an 11th round whose three minutes must have seemed like an eternity of punishment stretched credulity.
Not least in the mind of the equally noble Julio Diaz.
The man who stood so frequently within a last, solitary blow of wrecking Khan’s career emerged from this palpitating thriller to say: ‘I was hurting Amir all night. Many other fighters would have taken a knee and quit. But he has a huge heart and he wouldn’t let it go.
‘There were so many times I felt I was one punch away from knocking him out but he plain refused to let me finish him.’
Khan will draw strength from that tribute as he heads for a December world title summit against either the winner of the current mini-tournament to find a unified light-welter champion, or the IBF welterweight belt holder Devon Alexander.
What all the acknowledgements of his heroics cannot do, however, is answer the questions which continue to nag at our former champion’s quest for renewed glory.
No, not the one about his chin.
What the most persistent of his critics seem unable to comprehend is the contradiction between their ridiculing of Khan’s punch resistance and his capacity for withstanding a ferocity of bludgeoning which would render a grizzly bear senseless.
‘I think you all saw that Amir can take a punch,’ said his new trainer, with a hint of irony.
Result: Amir Khan beats Julio Diaz by unanimous decision (114-113, 115-113, 115-112)
It's been a crazy and hectic week ahead of Khan vs. Diaz this Saturday night live on BoxNation.
Both Amir and Julio Diaz weigh-in at 142 pounds on the scales.
