The TV star first met Liam in the bar where he was working while studying for a degree in arboriculture. He proposed in 2017, a year after almost 16 million people watched Candice crowned the winner on The Great British Bake Off, which he had encouraged her to enter. "He had to eat pavlova for breakfast and dinner when I was practising recipes," she said. But for Liam, nothing was as sweet as the moment he saw his beautiful wife-to-be walking towards him in her strapless duchess satin gown. "There was no way I was going conservative on my wedding day," Candice said, who stunned in a satin gown by Monique Lhuillier from Browns Brides for her special day.
