Just days after joining Jennifer Lopez’s 50th birthday celebrations, Ryan Thomas hosted an epic party all of his own, in honour of his recent engagement to Lucy Mecklenburgh. The couple threw a star-studded engagement party on a City Cruises boat ride down the River Thames, and it certainly looks like a night to remember.

Lucy said she felt like a "Disney princess" on the evening, wearing a gorgeous metallic gown that costs £2,500 from Sylwia Romaniuk, the same label she had worn on the night Ryan proposed. "Apologies for the engagement party spam coming your way today & probably all of next week hahaha. Firstly can we take a moment for my dress! I felt like a Disney princess. I actually wore the same brand the night Ryan proposed to me in Positano so when I saw this design I knew it was perfect for my engagement party," Lucy captioned a photo of herself posing on board the boat with Tower Bridge in the background.
