Michelle Keegan and Mark Wright paid a visit to the church where they tied the knot five years ago, as the reality TV star revealed on Instagram on Sunday. Former TOWIE cast member Mark posted a photo of himself sitting on a stone wall at the edge of the church grounds, with the beautiful building in the background. He wore shorts with a white shirt and sunglasses and the couple's pet chihuahua Pip sat obediently on his knee.

Recalling the special day, which took place on 24 May 2015, HELLO! commissioning editor Jane Dowdeswell said: "Mark and Michelle are such a warm and down-to-earth couple and made us feel like part of the family on their wedding day. Jane went on to discuss the ceremony itself, saying: "Inside the church, everyone was waiting for that first glimpse of Michelle's wedding dress, and she certainly didn't disappoint in a bespoke ivory gown by Galia Lahav and a long Italian lace veil.

"It was hard to choose between watching Michelle or looking at Mark, as he had told us he would be fighting back the tears at that moment. One of my favourite photographs is of Mark with his head turned to look at Michelle as she walks towards him. He told me, 'I didn't know if I'd be able to keep looking at her. But then I thought, 'You know what? I'm not going to miss this.'" Jane adds: "I also remember how the applause when they walked up the aisle together as newlyweds was so loud that it almost drowned out Mendelssohn's Wedding March." How lovely!
