"This wedding, being surrounded by the people we love, has been everything we hoped it would be and so much more," an ecstatic Kimberley told HELLO! "I would do anything to be able to turn back the clock and start it all over again.
"There’s so much we haven’t been able to take in, but I’m sure we’ll spend our whole honeymoon reliving it. It’s a day we will cherish for the rest of our lives."
Her long-term love Justin added: "I guess, in a way, Kimberley and I were already living a married life in terms of our commitment to one another. The wedding has been a formality, but why should we miss out on a celebration just because we’ve stood the test of time? It’s something to celebrate in itself."
As HELLO! reveals in world exclusive pictures, Kimberley walked down the aisle in an exquisite bespoke lace and silk gown by Berta Bridal from exclusive London stockists The Wedding Club.
"I couldn’t wait to see her," Justin said of catching a glimpse of his bride for the first time.
"Although I quickly realised I was in the doghouse even before we were husband and wife when her first words to me at the altar were, ‘Why didn’t you turn round?’," he said, explaining that the minister had told him not to. "When I did, though ... wow. She just looked incredible; more gorgeous than I’ve ever seen her."
And a proud Cheryl agreed. "The only way I could describe her is breathtaking. She literally took my breath away.
"I have seen Kimberley in so many beautiful outfits and with gorgeous hair and make-up over the years, but this was on another level. And her beauty was coming from the inside out."
After exchanging vows in St James Parish Church, surrounded by family including their 16-month-old son Bobby and guests including Denise Van Outen and Kara Tointon, the wedding party moved to nearby restaurant The Cliff for the wedding reception. There, moving speeches were delivered by family members before guests sat down to a candelelit wedding supper.
"To watch your best friend marry the love of her life and having experienced their relationship flourish over so many years is something I have never experienced before," Cheryl told HELLO!. "It’s meant the world to me to be a part of their special day and I wish them all the love and happiness in the world because nobody deserves it more."
