"We started as a young couple together, and now here we are with our four kids walking us down the aisle. I feel like the luckiest person on earth," Abbey told HELLO! as she and Peter exclusively shared the full photo album from their unforgettable day, which took place on 17 December on a secluded private island at the Anantara Dhigu Maldives Resort, in front of the couple’s family and closest friends.

"To share this beautiful occasion with the family we created after all these years was really special. They loved it," added former England and Liverpool footballer Peter.

The couple were joined by their children: Sophia, 11, Liberty, seven, Johnny, five, and three-year-old Jack and family including Abbey’s mum Karen for the intimate ceremony, which took place under an arch of white roses, which had also featured at the couple’s June 2011 wedding.

Revealing how it was Peter who surprised her with the memorable day, Abbey said: "We were going to renew our vows on our ten-year anniversary, but with lockdown, we couldn’t do it… Pete’s quite romantic at heart; he has definitely earned himself brownie points for the next few years."

Abbey’s barefoot boho-style bridal look comprised a delicate vintage lace dress, made by family friend and dressmaker Sylvia, and a matching ethereal veil.

"Abbey looked incredible, and even after 11 years, I still got butterflies when she walked down the aisle," Peter told the magazine. "It was a stunning island, but Ab stole the show – I’m a lucky man."

After an emotional ceremony, guests sat down to a feast of traditional Maldivian starters, followed by a surf-and-turf main course – reminiscent of the wedding breakfast Abbey and Peter had for their original nuptials, held at the Stapleford Park hotel in Leicestershire.
