Stacey's now husband, Joe Swash, got down on one knee during a Christmas Eve family walk in the woods across the road from their house. Joe had planned a beautiful white floral arrangement to be set up where he popped the question. Stacey's glittering ring contains two Australian Opals, the reason behind this is so sweet! Opals are Stacey's birthstone and Australia is where the couple first met in the I'm a Celebrity Jungle.

In the week leading up to her big day Stacey shared that she had updated the band from silver to gold to match the rest of her jewellery. She also had some of the stones moved around to make it more dainty for her finger.

Joe Swash and Stacey Solomon decided that their wedding would be held at their beautiful family home 'Pickle Cottage' in Essex. Stacey reportedly walked down the aisle under a beautiful arch feature that is in the gardens of their cottage and their nearest and dearest sat and ate their wedding breakfast under their stunning barn setting on the grounds.

The couple shared their decoration ahead of the event including adding white flowers to lamp posts and the door. They also added pink flowers near their pool since Stacey was inspired by the beautiful flowering bougainvillea trees whilst on her Hen Do in Mykonos.

Stacey confirmed to her Instagram followers that she was able to have the wedding at home because she and Joe chose to have a blessing in front of their wedding guests rather than the legally binding ceremony. She explained to her Instagram followers that in order for her to get a marriage license for her home, the premises needed to be readily available for wedding ceremonies.

She said "As this is our private family home and we need it to remain that way we couldn't go for that option. So we are having a relaxed, private blessing in front of our closest friends and family and a ceremony of our love to each other." She confirmed that they will legally register their marriage soon after.

Did you know that wedding rules in England and Wales may soon be changing to allow the officiant to be licensed rather than the location? Future couples may soon be able to do just as Stacey Solomon and Joe Swash have but with a legally binding ceremony.

What decor theme did Stacey and Joe have on their wedding day?

Anyone who follows Stacey on social media or watches her on TV will know that she is the queen of DIY. She has regularly posted about her DIY home renovation efforts since moving in to 'Pickle Cottage' with Joe Swash and her children in 2021. She is certainly proving to be DIY Bride of everyone's dreams... we'd certainly love to see her wedding inspo board on Pinterest!

On the 25th July, Stacey shared a Reel on Instagram showcasing the gorgeous rustic barn reception for their weddings. Complete with beautiful foliage, festoon lighting and white flowers; effortlessly beautiful and so on trend!

Check out the video she posted showcasing the wedding breakfast decor:

The tressel tables and clean white chairs were gifted to her by IKEA along with several other decor pieces. Stacey plans to donate these tables and chairs to charities that can supply them to people in need after the event. On Friday 29th July, Stacey posted about how she had donated several pieces that were gifted to her to charities such as Bernardo's and asked followers for charity recommendations for the furniture.

Emily-Louise Flowers lent her some of her white roses and eucalyptus which made for a gorgeously simple colour combination that still had a wow-factor!

While Stacey loves fejkas she did have real flowers in her bouquet! She shared that she wished they could stay fresh forever but true to her style she is hoping to preserve them by drying them flat and then framing them. Her bouquet echoed the other florals we have seen with beautiful white roses and plenty of greenery! See her story from the 29th of July which shows her flowers as well as a glimpse of Stacey's daughter Rose's dress.

A heartwarming tribute

When Stacey posted the first look photos on her Instagram, she left a beautiful message encouraging donations to grief support charities for children.

"Joe lost his father at the age of 11 and so did my dad. A huge part of our wedding day was reflecting on how this had a huge effect on them and how hard it is, even to this day to deal with.

We have copyrighted all these photos. We ask for all media who wish to use them on their own platforms to lawfully do the right thing by asking permission from the photographer. They will in turn give permission for them to be used as long as the media outlets using them make a donation to a charity that supports bereaved children."

These memories are so special to us and it would mean the absolute world to us if they made a difference to children growing up with the loss and heartache that my father and my husband did. Thank you for respecting our wishes"

Guides for Brides have chosen to donate to SeeSaw, which is a charity supporting children, young people and their families through grief in Oxfordshire.

What did Stacey Solomon wear on her wedding day?

Stacey wore a stunning off-white wedding gown with beautiful detailing on the bodice and a-line skirt. Her cathedral length veil can be seen gracefully floating in the breeze in the sixth photo on her Instagram post. Joe looked super suave in his navy blue, three piece suit complete with crisp white shirt and sage green bow tie.

Stacey recently admitted to feeling nervous and self-conscious when thinking about trying on wedding dresses (relatable!!) despite being excited about the whole event. She therefore decided to try on some dresses at home and Verona Bridal travelled to see her and help her pick out her dream dress.

Stacey later admitted that her sister then visited and the pair got emotional imagining the magical day. The images she shared showed beautiful A-line dresses with sheer tops and ethereal tulle skirts. She clearly had a vision in mind!

She also showed the shoes that her toddler, Rose, would be wearing and how she was personalising them in a similar way for the big day. Plus, Rose's dress was made from the off cuts of Stacey's own wedding gown... We're not crying, you are!!

Prior to the wedding, Stacey revealed that she dyed her hair back to her more natural colour for the big day. Although Stacey admitted it had been a long process to get it back to this softer colour she said that she had always envisioned herself looking this way for her wedding.

How did Stacey have her nails for her wedding day?

Stacey unveiled her bridal nails at the same time as her updated engagement ring! The manicure accentuates her stunning ring as the nail on her ring finger has a pink base with white detailing whereas the rest are a simple pearly white. Stacey has joked in the past that her DIY obsession often results in her nails breaking or being covered in paint but hopefully she managed to keep them pristine for her big day!

Who were Stacey's bridesmaids and what did they wear?

Stacey Solomon recently updated her followers with pictures of her bridesmaids on her big day! She had eight bridesmaids including her sister, Joe's two sisters, celebrity makeup artist Penelope Ryan and social media influencer, Mrs Hinch! Penelope did Stacey's wedding makeup and Stacey and Sophie Hinchliffe have been close friends for a long time!

Recently, Stacey announced the launch of her brand new occasion wear collection with In The Style. She gave a big clue to what her bridesmaids may be wearing on her big day! She modelled a gorgeous red wrap dress on her stories and said it was "very similar" to the dresses she had chosen for her bridesmaids to wear. We now know that the wrap style is one of the styles that her bridesmaids had for the day with four of her bridesmaids wearing this style. Rather than the red coloured dress that she modelled for the collection, the dresses were a pale green mint colour, matching the rest of colour palette that we have seen of the day.

The other four bridesmaids wore a different style dress. These were a slightly different hue, and featured thin straps as well as off-the-shoulder detailing which flowed seamlessly with Stacey's dress. Stacey's bridesmaids also wore the same gold necklace with what appears to be a heart charm! We imagine these were a gift from Stacey which is such as sweet gesture!

Stacey also had some adorable flower girls at her wedding! While we know her daughter Rose wore a dress similar to Stacey's the other flower girls wore sage green dresses with ruffled tulle skirts.

Who was invited to Stacey Solomon and Joe Swash's Wedding?

Stacey's shared prior to the big day that her four children and two dogs would be part of her wedding and that her father was going to walk her down the aisle. Stacey announced on her stories on Friday the 29th of July that her sons made speeches. Celebrity guests including: Sophie Hinchcliffe (Mrs Hinch), Rob Beckett, Leigh Francis (aka Keith Lemon) and Loose Women stars Ruth Langsford and Linda Robson are also rumoured to have been in attendance.

What entertainment did Stacey and Joe have at their wedding?

While there have been different rumours surrounding the music at the wedding, from reports of a garage DJ and karaoke to TOWIE favourite James Argent's band performing for the couple, no actual footage has been released. The couple's first dance was to My Love is Your Love by Whitney Houston; a song that could be straight out of your favourite rom-com! It was an acoustic cover performed by one of Stacey's friends James Grant (who used to DJ at the bar she worked at) as well as up and coming artist Kara Marni. This performance was a surprise for Stacey and Joe as it was all arranged by Stacey's sister Jemma. James also hosted the speeches and operated the sound on the special day!

Stacey did reveal that she had created some activity packs for the children at the wedding which contained amongst other things a teddy bear, crayons, slime and some snacks to keep the little ones entertained. Stacey stayed true to herself and used this as an opportunity to support small businesses. Stacey also shared some sparklers for the guests to use to 'light the way for the newlyweds'.

What food was there to eat at Stacey and Joe's Wedding?

While we are yet to find out what the newlyweds and their guests ate as a main meal on the magical day, Stacey did share an image of the cake! This cake was created by Sweet Nellys who Stacey has used in the past for birthdays and other celebrations. This gorgeous, simple design gives a rustic feel which echos the other images we have seen so far! There are some subtle hints of gold as well as some stunning white roses. We do not know the exact flavours inside but during the at home tasting Stacey and Joe's baby Rose seemed to enjoy the Victoria's Sponge the most!

Where did Stacey Solomon go for her Hen Do?

Stacey Solomon and her bride tribe headed to Mykonos in Greece for her destination bachelorette bash! It looks like she and her girls had a laugh on the way to Mykonos as she was dressed up as a pickle!

Along with relaxing poolside, Stacey and her friends spent some time on a boat in the Mediterranean Sea and looked like they had fun snorkelling!

Where are Stacey and Joe going for their Honeymoon?

Since Stacey and Joe both went abroad for their respective hen and stag do's they chose not to jet off to an exotic location for their honeymoon and are instead staying at home! The couple have referred to this as their "homeymoon' which we think is amazing! Stacey explained on her Instagram stories that since her and Joe often work away, they hadn't spent many summer holidays at home with their children. Therefore this school holiday, they have dedicated their time to staying at home and have rescheduled any work commitments. Stacey has shared videos of her and her children playing hide and seek as well as peekaboo with her younger children that caused some adorable giggles and many happy memories we are sure!
