The EastEnders actress, 30, tied the knot with her childhood sweetheart Matt in a romantic ceremony in Ibiza in September last year.

To mark one year since their special day, Lacey took to Instagram to post a snap of Matt as they enjoyed food and drinks at what appeared to be an outdoor venue.

Happy one year my love ! Easiest decision I’ve ever made ❤️

Fans were quick to congratulate the couple on their first anniversary.

One person said: “Can’t believe it’s a year already. Wishing you both lots of happiness. Happy anniversary.”

Another wrote: “Happy Anniversary to you both, wow where has that year gone!” while a third added: “This is too cute! Congrats on one year and hopefully there will be many more! Best couple by far.”

Lacey and Matt met when they were just 15 and Matt popped the question during a trip to Venice in 2016.

The loved-up couple said “I do” in front of 120 of their closest friends and family last September.

Many of her EastEnders cast mates, past and present, also attended the ceremony including Laurie Brett (Jane Beale), Scott Maslen (Jack Branning), James Bye (Martin Fowler), Jake Wood (Max Branning), Aaron Sidwell (Steven Beale), and Barbara Windsor (Peggy Mitchell).

Speaking about her big day, Lacey told OK! Magazine at the time: “I didn’t go to sleep until 5am on our wedding night as I was still so excited about the day and then I woke up at 8am!

“On the day I couldn’t wait to get down the aisle and marry Matt. I was like, ‘hurry up, I want to get married!'”

She added: “I wasn’t nervous walking down the aisle, which was strange as I can’t walk down a red carpet without wanting the ground to swallow me up.”

Lacey and Matt announced their engagement just a year earlier, with Matt posting a photo of Lacey looking visibly stunned while showing off her ring.

He wrote: “She said yes! Ooooosssshhhhhh #fiance @laceyturner.”
