Love Island’s Olivia Buckland and new husband Alex Bowen look radiant in the first official photo from their glamorous wedding.
Sorry, we should say Olivia Bowen now!
It’s also the first glimpse we’ve had of Olivia’s stunning Enzoani fishtail wedding gown.
Olivia and Alex married at Gosfield Hall in Essex on Saturday, September 15 after first meeting on the second series of ITV2 dating show Love Island during the summer of 2016.
“The wedding was overwhelmingly perfect,” said Olivia. “It feels like it didn’t happen because it was so perfect. I had a vision and it all fitted into place like a puzzle. I was totally speechless the day after.”
Alex added: “I can’t describe it with words. It felt like we were in a movie. It was surreal.”
The couple invited 98 guests to their ceremony and afternoon reception, including TOWIE’s Pete Wicks and Love Island and Celebrity Big Brother star Gabby Allen, before another 150 guests arrived for the evening party.
Olivia told the magazine that she and Alex both “burst into tears” when they saw each other for the first time on the day.
“I was really trying to hold it together and compose myself, because I didn’t want to fully lose it,” she said.
Alex added: “I cried when I looked at her. I was actually crying before she got out of the car!”
