Jess Wright has said she felt ‘elation’ and ‘could not stop smiling’ on her wedding day in Mallorca.
The former The Only Way Is Essex star, 36, tied the knot with businessman William Lee-Kemp on September 9, wearing a stunning tiered Milla Nova gown with an impressive train, tiara and a veil.
The swanky event included 12 bridesmaids, a church ceremony and a banquet at a castle.
The pair, who have been dating since January 2019, got engaged during a ski break in March 2020, when William presented his now-wife with a sparkling square-cut diamond engagement ring.
Sharing a photo from their recent big day, she told Hello! magazine: ‘I felt so much elation, so much happiness I could not stop smiling.’
Recalling the moment he saw the bride, William said: ‘She looked so beautiful. The dress was unbelievable, even more spectacular than I thought it would be.
‘The whole church gasped. It was one of those unforgettable moments.’
Jess entered the Basilica de Sant Francesc in Palma on the arm of her father to I’m Kissing You by Des’ree from Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet.
The bride revealed: ‘Hearing it in that beautiful church with my dad at my side, and to see Will at the end of the aisle, I would relive that many times over if I could.’
The wedding party moved to the Castillo de Bendinat in Calvia for the reception, where Jess changed into a Vivienne Westwood gown to reflect the day’s Hollywood glamour.
Later, she wore a third dress by Australian design house Pallas Couture.
The influencer said the couple had persevered with their plans after the wedding was postponed from June.
‘I will never give up on a dream,’ she declared.
‘There were so many times we thought that we might have to go ahead with a smaller wedding due to all the restrictions, but we kept holding on.
‘Someone could well say we are persistent, and I think that is probably now one of my middle names.’
Directly before and during their Spanish mini moon, Jess shared photos of the couple as they celebrated taking the next step together.
One post Jess captioned: ‘3 years ago today was our first date & here we are on our mini moon after the most amazing week 🤍 I can’t wait to share our memories with you ✨’
In the run-up to the wedding, Jess jetted off to Ibiza for a boozy hen-do with her pals, complete with matching monogrammed luggage and an all-white dress code.
The bride-to-be even managed to stick artfully stick a veil onto both a pilot’s hat and her swimming costume as the group celebrated together in the sunshine.
