After 14 years together, Kimberley Walsh and Justin Scott are husband and wife, as the pair exchanged vows in an intimate ceremony in Barbados. The couple, who have a son, Bobby, were married in St James Parish Church in Holetown in the presence of close friends and family.
While the wedding has been shrouded in secrecy, new details of the lavish affair have been revealed, as guests were sent a detailed list of activities they could expect to enjoy over the three-day celebrations. "Welcome to Barbados, We are very much looking forward to enjoying this weekend with you," the itinerary began.
Festivities got underway on the eve of the big day as the couple welcomed family and friends with cocktails and canapes at the luxurious Drift Ocean Terrace Lounge. On the day of the wedding, the guests, including Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, Nicola Roberts and Denise van Outen were then transported in private cars to St James' Parish Church to witness the couple exchange vows. The ceremony was followed by a reception as the newlyweds and their guests enjoyed dinner and dancing at The Cliff.
On 31 January, guests were invited on a sun set cruise on a catamaran to take in the idyllic surrounds and even had a chance to "cool off and swim with turtles." While the likes of Cheryl and Denise Van Outen love to take a cheeky selfie, on this occasion attendees were banned from taking any pictures of the three-day celebrations as the couple have reportedly struck a six-figure deal with a magazine.
Kimberley's former Girls Aloud bandmates, Cheryl and Nicola Roberts, were bridesmaids, while son Bobby was a page boy. Before the wedding Cheryl and Nicola posted emotional messages wishing a "lifetime of happiness" to their best friend.
Kimberley admitted to Hello! magazine that she would not be able to look at Cheryl as she walks down the aisle, as she feared she would break down in front of the altar. "I used to be good at keeping up an icy exterior but since I had (16-month-old son) Bobby, I'm so much more emotional. I'm slightly worried about the wedding to be honest," she said.
"A few happy tears are fine, but I don't want to spend the whole day sobbing, so I'm going to have to be careful about even looking at Cheryl and my sisters, because they'll definitely cry and that will set me off."
The island retreat, which is said to cost £10,000-a-day to hire, boasts a main house with a host of luxury features, including full staff and an array of optional beauty treatments.
