Strictly couple reveal they got married THREE times all in different locations

The pair tied the knot for the first time in London, then headed off abroad to two other destinations

Strictly Come Dancing’s Janette Manrara and Aljaz Skorjanec tied the knot recently, not just once but THREE times and in all different locations.

The professional dancers first said ‘I do’ in a romantic ceremony in London last month and have since jetted off to Florida and Slovenia to tie the knot a further two times.

The couple started dating six years ago and announced their engagement in 2015.

Janette, 33, and Aljaz, 27, had their first ceremony at Chelsea Old Town Hall in July.

The lavish affair was attended by their Strictly pals including Louise Redknapp, Frankie Bridge and Daisy Lowe.

Due to some of their elderly family members being unable to travel they decided to go to them and have a further two ceremonies abroad.

Janette told OK! Magazine: “It was the happiest two weeks of our lives.

“To say that we got to walk down the aisle, exchange our vows and celebrate our marriage three times is really nice.

“Most people only have the one day.”

They then travelled to Disneyland Paris with their family members to celebrate before heading to Aljaz’s native Slovenia for the second ceremony.

Aljaz said: “We took Janette’s family to Ljubljana (Slovenia’s capital) and took them up to the castle – they’d never seen a castle.

“Then we went to Lake Bled and took a boat out to the island to see the church.”

Janette added: “I started crying as soon as I got to the venue and saw everything that had been done by Aljaz’s family and the planners.”

And the celebrations continued. They then jetted off to Florida, Janette’s home, and exchanged their vows for the third time at Dolores But You Can Call Me Lolita restaurant.

Janette said: “It was a much smaller venue than Slovenia, but we still had 85 guests.

“It was extra special for me, because my grandparents, aunts and uncles were there to celebrate with us.”

Aljaz added: “It was so special.

“All our families, planners and guests put so much into making each wedding so special for us.”

The star also spoke about her gorgeous dress and revealed she wore a different dress in the ceremony in front of her grandparents.

“I went to a place called David’s Bridal. Most of my family had seen the London wedding in OK! Magazine, so I wanted my grandparents to see me walk down the aisle in a different dress to the one they’d seen.

“My mum and my sister went to buy it with me but it was a surprise for Aljaz,” she told the mag.

Gushing over his beautiful bride, Aljaz said: “Janette looked so beautiful. She looked just like a Disney princess.

“I love everything about Janette. We do everything together and I love it all. I think we are like one person.”

“Meeting and marrying Aljaz is a dream come true. He is my Prince Charming. I’m going to start crying again,” Janette said.
