Rochelle and Marvin Humes had their three children at the forefront of their minds when planning their ten-year vow renewal, but did you know about the very sentimental gifts they gave their daughters Alaia-Mai and Valentina?

The nine-year-old and five-year-old acted as bridesmaids for their mother, with photos taken by Chelsea White showing the pair wearing matching white dresses with full skirts and satin belts from Quinn Harper children's boutique as they walked down the red aisle in the Marble Gardens at Villa d'Este in Lake Como.

They both held white baskets filled with red rose petals which they scattered on the floor ahead of Rochelle, but what we didn't see was the special messages their parents gave them behind the scenes – until the bride shared a photo on her Instagram Stories.

The Hit List stars had a note stitched into a white napkin using blue thread to act as their 'something old' and 'something blue' when they get married in the future. It read: "Today you hold a basket of flowers, one day it will be the bouquet. So here is something old to carry on your wedding day. Love Mummy & Daddy. 27.07.2022."

They will no doubt act as long-lasting memories for Alaia and Valentina, who were actually the inspiration behind Rochelle and Marvin's second wedding.

"The girls have watched the video and seen photographs from our wedding day, and Alaia, in particular, kept asking: 'Why wasn't I there?'" 33-year-old Rochelle told HELLO! in an exclusive interview.

"She wanted to know: 'Where was I? In your tummy?' She wasn’t letting it drop and that kind of spurred us on, because we’d always said this was something we wanted to do."

The couple explained that having their whole family witness the beautiful wedding was very special. "I think it's important that the children see their mum and dad celebrating their love for each other and coming together as one again – and now they're part of that journey, too. 

"The girls will definitely remember being here for this. Even Blake will look back one day and know he was part of it," Marvin said, and his wife continued: "Like so many people, we’ve experienced loss over the past couple of years and it's made us realise how vital it is to make memories.

"Making memories as a family is so important. It's everything."
