They tied the knot in a star-studded ceremony on Sunday – and in their first big interview since the big day, Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan have talked about their intense love for one another.
In an interview with Hello magazine, Mark, 28, revealed how much his 27-year-old bride means to him.
He said: ‘I am really excited for that security, to know you have this person forever in your life. I know I have met The One,’ with Michelle adding: ‘We have both got our fairytale.’
The couple said, ‘I do’ in front of 200 guests at St Mary’s Church in Bury St Edmonds, Suffolk with a reception at Hengrave Hall, spending the bank weekend there with family and friends.
Their first dance song is yet to be revealed, but is thought to have been Dirty Dancing themed – with the pair choosing it before they were even engaged.
Mark said: ‘We were lying in the sun listening to music and this song came on and we both starting singing it. Then we looked at each other and said “This should be our song”.
Michelle reportedly changed into a white dress with a ruffled skirt and white shoes in order to perform the dance.
According to Hello!, the couple also made a loving declaration with their meal choices on the big day, choosing food from the north and south to represent their origins.
With fish, chips and mushy peas on the menu, as well as pie and mash with liquor, the couple chose one of each to share.
Michelle was seen attending her final dress fitting at Brown’s Brides in Marylebone the weekend before, after the brunette beauty designed her ivory dress which had intricate detailing.
The couple allegedly spent around £60,000 on flowers to deck out the spectacular Hengrave Hall, which includes 35 luxurious bedrooms.
It is thought around 140 guests attended the ceremony, with up to 80 more joining them in the evening.

The exclusive hire of the venue is believed to start at £4,000, with this increasing depending on what day of the week it is.
The big day happened almost three years after the couple initially met on a New Year’s break in Dubai in 2012.
After an intense nine-month romance, he popped the question when they returned to the Middle Eastern holiday hotspot in September 2013.
The Strictly Come Dancing finalist also admitted spending three months apart from his stunning girlfriend due to work commitments was the catalyst for him popping the question.
Speaking to the Daily Mirror,he said: ‘I was desperate to see her, I missed her so much and that’s when I realised, ‘f*****g hell, this is intense’.
‘I couldn’t be away from her for that long, so I thought I’m going to get on this flight and propose. I flew Michelle to Dubai and that’s where I told her I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her.
‘I’ve got now, for the first time in my life, what I’ve always wanted and what every boy dreams of – affection in a relationship, love, best friend, a girl I fancy… everything rolled into one.’
