Blake Lively stuck close by her husband, Ryan Reynolds, at Saturday night's star-studded Chime For Change: The Sound of Change benefit concert in London. Their side-stage cuddling is the first time Blake and Ryan have been photographed together at an event since they tied the knot last September. The couple may have been reminiscing on their wedding day as they watched their pal Florence Welch perform during the concert since she also sang at Blake and Ryan's South Carolina nuptials. They were not the only pair to show their affection for one another over the course of the evening, though. Beyoncé Knowles, who headlined the event, was joined by her husband, Jay-Z, on stage where they shared a kiss in front of the crowd.
