The couple have been married since August last year, having tied the knot in a ceremony that took place at the Kings Head Hotel in Cirencester. The pair were forced to postpone their wedding, which was planned for 2020, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Will took to his Instagram Story on Saturday

Taking to Instagram to mark the day, Will shared a series of beautiful snaps from the wedding showing the couple posing for photos in the idyllic Cotswold village of Bibury. He captioned the post: "The best day of my life. Thank you to all who attended and to those that helped to make it happen."

Polly's amazing achievement comes just over a month after Will announced that the couple are expecting their first child together. Taking to Instagram back in March, Will posted a photo of himself holding a personalised mug with the words 'Papa' engraved on the front.
