The wedding venue

Lisa and John married in front of their close friends and family in a beautiful autumnal wedding ceremony, which took place at Aynhoe Park in Northamptonshire. Their wedding celebrations were held over two days, with the happy couple enjoying a pre-wedding dinner on the eve of their big day. We loved the photo that John shared of himself from the evening wearing Lisa's bridal crown!


Lisa's engagement ring

We loved Lisa's beautiful flower-style diamond engagement ring with matching gold wedding band. Taking to Instagram, the newlywed posted a close-up look of the rings.

Accompanying the photo, Lisa wrote: "I've never been one to look after my hands and especially not my nails but since I got engaged and then married I'm trying to look after them!!" The star then went on to thank her manicurist, adding: "Thank you for helping me and doing such a lovely manicure @finishingtouchbarnet."

After a fan asked the former EastEnders actress in the comments section of her post where her wedding ring was from, she responded, writing: "It's from Triggs jewellers in Enfield. They were so lovely and made it to fit under my [engagement] ring."

The wedding dress

Lisa had such a clever idea with her bridal gown. The actress wore a gorgeous ivory fitted dress with cap-sleeve lace bodice for the marriage ceremony. However, later in the day at the reception, she removed the bodice overlay to reveal the elegant gown underneath, which featured spaghetti straps and a gathered waistband.

Lisa's wedding hair

Lisa wore her hair in a pretty half-up, half-down style for her special day. Her look was created by Holly Willoughby's hairstylist Ciler Peksah, curling the ends of her hair and giving her tresses a lovely relaxed vibe. Instead of a veil, the style was fastened with a pretty bespoke bejewelled clip by Isabella Henry Headdresses.

Speaking about the crystallised, piece, she said: "As soon as I saw this beautiful @IsabellaHenryHeaddressesn heart comb, I fell in love with it and knew I wanted to wear it on my wedding day."

The bridal party

On hand to walk with Lisa down the aisle were her two nieces, Lola and Eva-Rose, who acted as her bridesmaids, as well as her 13-year-old daughter Billie, who was given the role of her best woman. Billie, along with her cousins, sang during the ceremony. Lisa posted on Instagram: "My beautiful nieces @lolascriven_ @evarose.s bridesmaids of dreams thank you for your fantastic song and for just being amazing."
