Talking about her wedding, she told Hello! magazine: “It was spectacular. Everyone says it’s the best day of your life and it just exceeded my expectations. I enjoyed every single second.”

She added: “I’d told myself not to let it pass in a blur, because it really is quite overwhelming and nerve-racking. But I really did love it, seeing all my friends’ faces. And then once I held hands with Charlie, I thought, ‘We’re right’.”

Charlie, who is an insurance broker, said he couldn’t stop smiling as his bride walked down the aisle. He said: “Alex looked absolutely stunning.”

During the ceremony the couple spoke in English and Welsh and their vows included a ‘personal touch’, reports Hello!.

Charlie’s vows included a promise to ‘stand by you, whatever the future holds, to cherish and care for you and always be there for you when you need my support’, before adding: “I promise not to take too long in the shower and to be on time.”

Alex’s vows included: “I promise to try to develop patience and to embrace the outdoors and all it has to offer, including camping.”
