England cricket stars were today seen leaving their teammate Ben Stokes’ wedding after spending the night at a luxury hotel.
Stuart Broad, Jos Buttler and Ian Bell were photographed leaving Cadbury Hosue near Bristol the day after their shamed teammate tied the knot with his fiancee.
Stokes, 26, wed Clare Ratcliffe – the mother of his two children – in a village near Weston-Super-Mare on Saturday.
Friends and family later enjoyed the reception at a luxury hotel nearby and some were seen leaving the venue today.

Warwickshire batsman Ian Bell, who played international cricket for England, also stayed at the hotel
The wedding comes just weeks after Stokes, who is England’s highest-paid cricketer, was arrested on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm outside a nightclub in Bristol.
He was photographed wearing a bandage on his right hand following the alleged brawl last month.
A crowd of onlookers and well wishers from the village stood to one side of the churchyard to see him enter on his wedding day.
They watched as a string of England cricketers made their way from a nearby car park and along the path through the churchyard.

Among them were captain Joe Root, one day skipper Eoin Morgan, Broad, Graham Onions, Alastair Cook and Buttler.
Also in the congregation were ex-England all rounder Paul Collingwood and Stokes’s agent, Neil Fairbrother.
Broad was wearing a grey baseball cap and a black long-sleeve t-shirt when he left the hotel on Sunday. Lancashire batsman Buttler was wearing jeans and flip flops when he left the hotel.
Stokes was seen leaving in a Range Rover shortly after.
On Saturday, Clare wore a plunging full length silk gown tapered in around her waist. Her long dark hair was worn loosely to her shoulders and her veil covered her back stretching down to the floor.

She and her bridesmaids, friends Charlotte Marwood, Ellen Culliford, Hannah McKenzie, Hannah Girling and Kelly Dunton were all smiles as they made their way into the ceremony.
The wedding gave the cricketer the chance to put a rollercoaster few weeks behind him.
On September 26, when he and his teammates were out celebrating England’s win against the West Indies, a fight broke out outside a nightclub in Bristol which led to Stokes’ arrest.
He was released by police but is still under investigation and could face charges.
Days after the alleged brawl, a video emerged of Stokes doing impressions of celebrity Katie Price and her disabled son Harvey.
Following outrage over the offensive video, Stokes apologised, saying he did not intend to mock the youngster, but admitted that his actions were ‘foolish’.
