However, Janette was flying solo on the day, with husband Aljaz Skorjanec missing from the guest list.

She told the magazine why he couldn’t attend and how he was “gutted” to miss it.

Janette first reflected on the wedding and Karen’s happiness.

She said: “It’s priceless to see your friends happy.”

Janette shared a picture of herself, Karen and Luba on her pal’s big day to Instagram.

She revealed: “Happy to have shared such a special day. Love you always @karenhauer.”

What are Aljaz and Janette doing now?

Of course, both Janette and Aljaz have now left Strictly Come Dancing, where they started out on British TV as professional dancers.

Janette is now a TV presenter, fronting Strictly spin-off It Takes Two and Morning Live.

After stepping back from the show, Aljaz went on tour with Janette, with the pair performing their Remembering the Oscars tour to packed crowds up and down the UK.

He’s also been enjoying his downtime with Janette.

The pair have headed off on sunshine holidays and they’ve spent time visiting their families, too.
