Amy exchanged vows with Ben in front of their family and friends during a romantic ceremony at a five-star wedding venue in Gower Peninsula, South Wales. 

Speaking about her special day, Amy told Hello! magazine: ‘It was a stunning venue. I always knew I wanted to get married in Wales.

She continued: ‘The day was a celebration of Ben and me.’

Amy was surrounded by her nearest and dearest – including Dianne, who served as bridesmaid.

The pair were initially due to wed two years ago on July 25 2020 – before the marriage was postponed due to Covid. 

Amy and Ben met in 2011, but kept their romance secret for six years – previously admitting they were scared of what their dance teachers would say.

Amy finally got to have her hen do in May, which she combined with her fiancé’s stag night to create a joined ‘sten’.

She posed for a group shot with her friends and family, while another photo showed Ben planting a sweet kiss on her cheek.

It comes after in March, Amy took to Instagram to share a stunning snap of her trying on a wedding dress.
