The celebration then moved to their home in Dinas Powys, for an outdoor blessing ceremony and full celebration. They hired local florists and wine merchants for the party.

The marriage comes just couple of weeks after the couple announced that Charlotte had miscarried their baby.

According to the Daily Mail, the couple have been intending to wed for a while, with their source reporting that “Charlotte and Jonathan have been in love for a long time and a wedding was always on the cards.

“They wanted to keep things low key and swore all the guests to secrecy as they married under a tree. Jonathan has been a great influence on Charlotte, she has calmed down a lot since she met him.”

Charlotte and Jonny had announced they were expecting a child in May, before confirming in June that they had lost the baby. The announcement came with a request for respect and distance as they grieved.
