When Kimberley Walsh walked into the living room to debut her wedding dress to her bridesmaids, the former Girls Aloud singer asked, with a nervous smile, "Do I look all right?" There was no need for Kimberley to doubt – the bride looked exquisite in her bespoke ivory and silk gown.
Her wedding to fiancé Justin Scott was covered exclusively by HELLO! magazine and features in this week's issue. And for those who want another glimpse of the bride, HELLO! Online has released a new photo of Kimberley on her big day, alongside her doting husband.

"She just looked incredible; more gorgeous than I've ever seen her," said Justin Scott
The pair are pictured on the sandy beaches of Barbados, shortly after tying the knot at St James Parish Church.
"I couldn't wait to see her," Justin told HELLO!, of catching a glimpse of his bride for the first time.
"Although I quickly realised I was in the doghouse even before we were husband and wife when her first words to me at the altar were, 'Why didn't you turn round?'," he said, explaining that the minister had told him not to. "When I did, though... wow. She just looked incredible; more gorgeous than I've ever seen her."
And a proud Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, Kimberley's best friend and one of her bridesmaids, agreed. "The only way I could describe her is breathtaking. She literally took my breath away. I have seen Kimberley in so many beautiful outfits and with gorgeous hair and make-up over the years, but this was on another level. And her beauty was coming from the inside out."

Guests at the wedding included Denise Van Outen and Kara Tointon, as well as Kimberley and Justin's 16-month-old son Bobby.
After the ceremony, the party moved on to nearby restaurant The Cliff for the wedding reception. There, moving speeches were delivered by family members before guests sat down to a candle-lit wedding supper.
"This wedding, being surrounded by the people we love, has been everything we hoped it would be and so much more," an ecstatic Kimberley said. "I would do anything to be able to turn back the clock and start it all over again."
