Laura Whitmore has spoken in gushing terms about her secret wedding to Iain Stirling, as she shared details about their big day to start the new year.
The 35-year-old Celebrity Juice star said that they enjoyed the “most magical, perfect ceremony” when they tied the knot in Dublin.
She married Love Island voiceover star Iain less than 12 months after he proposed to her and the couple also announced they were expecting their first baby, in December.
Starting 2021 in style, Laura shared a never-before-seen snap of the happy couple as she confirmed that they had married and had “loved having it to ourselves.”
In the photo, Laura is seen clutching a bouquet of flowers while wearing a chic white suit.
Iain, meanwhile, mimics his new wife’s pose as he grins with delight at the camera.
Sharing details of the day, Laura wrote: “Entering 2021 like…
“A year ago Iain asked me to marry him and we had the most magical, perfect ceremony. We loved having it to ourselves.
“We had been planning the perfect celebration and I will forever be so thankful that’s what we got. We have never spoken publicly about our engagement or wedding.”
Laura continued: “Back at the time we never felt the need to say anything as it’s all such a personal experience. We also were too busy enjoying it!
“We’ve never shared this picture before now but a lot of people have contacted us and congratulated us the last month with good intentions so here’s to good news!”
Laura finished by wishing her fans a happy New Year and “sending love to you and yours”.
It has been reported that the couple were married at Dublin’s City Hall in front of 25 guests, which were the maximum allowed by Ireland’s coronavirus rules.
They had Laura’s half-brother Adam and Iain’s sister Kirsten as witnesses.
Shortly after news that they had married, Laura shared that she was pregnant in a post on Instagram.
She posted a photo of a baby onesie with Guns N’ Roses Sweet Child O’ Mine emblazoned on it.
She captioned it: “So I’ve always tried to be protective over the personal side of my life.
“A lot of things are just for me and my loved ones and we’ve chosen not to share publicly.
“However I want to now share good news as it’s our news to share – and I’m gonna be honest it’s starting to look like my lock down beer belly is out of control.
“Iain and I are expecting a baby early 2021. It’s been hard to keep such happy news quiet.
“Especially the times when I’ve had to run out of live radio to get sick in a bin or my penchant for a bowl of mashed potato in the morning.”
