Eastenders star Martine McCutcheon couldn't have been further from the Albert Square where she first found fame.
In a fairytale wedding ceremony which took place in one of the most romantic and picturesque destinations in the world, Martine last week married her 'best friend and lover' Jack McManus.
Exclusive photographs from the big day in the new issue of HELLO! magazine reveal how Jack arrived to the ceremony, on the shores of Italy's Lake Como, in a speedboat featured in the film Ocean's 12. The 36-year-ol actress chose a breathtaking, vintage-style lace wedding gown by leading bridal fashion house, Pronovias.
Talking about how he felt when he saw his bride walk down the aisle, Jack, 28, told HELLO!: "To me Martine always looks amazing, but she looks so incredible, I had a tear in my eye pretty much all the way through the ceremony.
"I am blessed with so many amazing memories and moments with her, but today has topped them all. I feel I'm the luckiest man in the world."
Martine admitted that she had never been happier.
"We are best friends as well as lovers and totally supportive of one another," she said.
"We feel that we can conquer anything the world throws at us as long as we have each other, and that's a rare thing.
"In a world where everything is so disposable, isn't it lovely to do something that has that optimism of, 'Yes, we're going to last the distance'."
Talking to the magazine, Martine also reveals that her mother Jenny has very much given her new son-in-law the seal of approval.
"Mum adores Jack and could not wait for him to become my husband," she says.
"Mum said for ages that Jack was The One. She said she's never seen me so calm or content and told me, 'You're so lucky to have found what you've found, so don't muck it up."
