Fleur looked stunning in a J'Aton Couture wedding dress with a strapless neckline, embellished bodice and textured mermaid skirt that perfectly highlighted her figure. She later changed into a white bridal jumpsuit by lingerie brand Raine and Bea.

Coronation Street actress Kym Marsh married Army Major Scott Ratcliff at the Royal Memorial Chapel in Sandhurst on 16 October 2021 after moving forward their wedding date for Kym's father Dave, who was sadly diagnosed with terminal prostate cancer.

The actress recently marked her first wedding anniversary by sharing a throwback of herself wearing a chic strapless Carolina Herrera wedding dress as she gazed lovingly at her husband, who looked dapper in his red uniform.

"1 year ago today I was lucky enough to marry my best friend. This man is everything to me. I honestly don’t know what I would do without him. He is my everything, my rock, my friend, my soulmate. Scott, I am so very lucky to be your wife and I thank my lucky stars everyday that you came into my life," she wrote on Instagram.

Sara Davies and her childhood sweetheart Simon said 'I do' in 2007. The Dragon's Den star shared a series of behind-the-scenes photos of the couple on their wedding day to mark their anniversary. They showed Sara wearing a strapless white gown with her hair in curls and a floral headpiece.

"Tomorrow is our 13th wedding anniversary..... I've been looking back through the photos today and it wasn’t the traditional ‘posed’ images that had me reminiscing, but the ones that really captured the spirit of the day..... thought I’d share a few with you," she wrote.

Ugo Monye

Former England rugby player Ugo Monye married his wife Lucy in 2016, but recently announced they had split, telling The Sun: "Forget the Strictly curse — it’s the Covid curse!"

In April 2016, he shared a photo of them in the car captioned: "Just got married!" Lucy wore a beautiful white floor-length gown with a fitted waist and lace detailing around the plunging neckline.

Chris Ramsey

Chris Ramsey and Rosie Winter said 'I do' in July 2014 at Jesmond Dene House in Newcastle. The comedian, who took part in the 2019 show, wore a pale grey check suit, white shirt and patterned tie, while his wife looked beautiful in a white lace fishtail gown from House Of Mooshki with cut-out detailing at the back – not the design she was initially looking for. 

"I originally went there to try on a short dress but when I tried it on I didn’t feel ‘bridey’ enough," she told The Finishing Touch Company. "I’m quite short I find it really hard to find a long dress which suits me, so I designed my own!"

Catherine Tyldesley

Former Strictly and Coronation Street star Catherine Tyldesley wed photographer Tom Pitfield at Colshaw Hall in Cheshire in 2016, and shared their wedding day exclusively with HELLO! magazine. 

The bride, who wore a stunning bespoke Philip Armstrong wedding gown, said the day went absolutely perfectly. "It was my dream come true," Catherine told HELLO! "I had been looking forward to this moment for so long. Tom and I are very traditional and it was important for us to show our deep commitment to each other."
