Bidding one final farewell to her picturesque home, Amy gushed: "Bye lovely home… you’ve been lush."

The couple's hectic house move comes in the wake of their romantic Welsh wedding. Having delayed their nuptials twice due to COVID-19, Amy and Ben were finally able to tie the knot on 2 July. The Strictly Come Dancing star and the professional dancer exchanged vows on South Wales' Gower Peninsula at luxury wedding venue, Oldwalls.

"I always knew I wanted to get married in Wales," explained Caerphilly-born Amy. She added: "It was a day I'd dreamt of since I was a little girl and, well, it was even more than that. Everything was perfect – from the flowers to the food to partying all night long."

The Strictly pro donned a gorgeous white gown

Looking every inch the fairytale princess, Amy opted for a stunning white strapless gown from Laura May Bridal. The figure-hugging gown featured an elegant leg spit and an embellished bodice. The 31-year-old completed her look with a pearl-encrusted veil and a dainty floral hairclip.

She later told HELLO!: "I felt like a Disney princess," while her new husband sweetly added: "Amy always looks stunning so it was no different to normal."
