Their wedding has been shrouded in secrecy with guests at Olivia Buckland and Alex Bowen’s wedding ordered to hand in their phones.
But, Mirror Online can exclusively reveal all the glorious details of the very first Love Island wedding.
Fans of the couple will remember watching them fall instantly in love on ITV’s hit show back in 2016 – and 24-year-old Olivia and model Alex, 27, sealed the deal today as they said ‘I do’ at the glorious Gosfield Hall in Colechester.
Here’s all the exclusive details about the gorgeous wedding!
Nestled in the heart of the Olivia’s native Essex, Gosfield Hall is a super swanky country pile. The posh venue caters for116 guests who will eat under ‘crystal chandeliers and lovely double-height mirrors’ in the Marquis of Buckingham’s Ballroom dining hall.
Prices for bespoke weddings start at £5,500 but costs can add up with extra guests. As well as the grounds boasting lots of gorgeous places for their star studded guests to take stunning selfies, the inside of the historical building is just as stunning.
Guests will be offered a choice of cocktails and classic welcome drinks all while sampling “delicious canapés”. Then Olivia and Alex have laid on a “delectable three-course sit-down meal’ to be washed down with speciality wine and champers.
Then an extra 200 plus guests are expected for the evening do with a Gosfield Hall DJ playing until midnight.
Olivia and Alex will presumably be spending their wedding night in Rococco Bridal Suite, which was decorated during the residency of King Louis XVIII.
Alex and Olivia’s wedding is being put on by Ellis Events and the organisers shared some very intricate details of the finishing touches to the day.
The table arrangements are thought to be blossom tress and guests can pose up next to a pretty flower wall which had its first set. The exquisite wall is filled with hundreds of high quality artificial cream and blush roses with green foliage.
Olivia was picked up from Chelmsford in a Rolls Royce Phantom. Her car company shared snaps of the huge Rolls as it picked her up and dropped her at the venue. Unfortunately, the spoil sports did not post a snap of Olivia in her wedding dress.
Devil in the detail
Pink cherry blossoms welcomed the guests as they wandered into the country pile with a large table outside to venue with welcome drinks.
Olivia and Alex also opted for a LOVE mural – presumably a nod to where they met – to line the dance floor.
It is thought their wedding ceremony was also decorated with cherry blossom trees and arches.
