Billie Faiers, as she is professionally known, married her longtime partner Greg Shepherd in a gorgeous Maldives ceremony back in 2019.
Now, two years later, the couple are as strong as ever and on Friday celebrated their second wedding anniversay. Billie shared a snap of their special day to her 3.2 million Instagram followers, captioning it: "Happy 2nd wedding Anniversary my sweets @gregory_shep
"One of the happiest most special days of our lives I love you more then ever".
The event was like something out of a fairytale, and luckily for us OK! Magazine were invited to witness the magic of it all.
We take a look back at the couple’s beautiful wedding album; from intimate photos of the girls getting ready to inside the gorgeous ceremony, the wedding speeches and first dance.
On the day, mother-of-two Billie looked sensational in a figure-hugging fishtail dress by designer Berta, which featured a plunging neckline, intricate lace and crystal embellishment.
The Mummy Diaries star's blonde hair was swept back off her face, and she wore a beautiful veil featuring the same design as her stunning gown.
Greg, 35, looked handsome in a cream three-piece suit, worn with a crisp white shirt and a white flower on his lapel.
Speaking exclusively to OK! Magazine at the time of her nuptials, Billie revealed that their wedding on the island of Kuramathi was the best day of her life.
She said: “Other than the days that Nelly and Arthur were born, it was the best day of my life. It was like a fairytale – all the stress and tears were worth it."
Sam Faiers' sister continued: “It’s so lovely for me to finally be a Shepherd and share a surname with my children. Marriage ties our little family together completely."
And revealing details on her gorgeous dress designed by Berta, the blushing bride confirmed: “As soon as I tried it on I had ‘the feeling’; when you know you know! Because we didn’t get married in a church I could get away with something more daring."
A besotted Greg added: “She looked incredible in her dress."
During the day, the doting parents were treated to a speech from their four-year-old daughter Nelly, revealing: “She’d been working on a Greatest Showman routine for a couple of months and then a week or so before the big day she came into our room and said: ‘Mummy, Daddy, just so you know I want to sing more than one song at the wedding. Love you, bye.’
“She loves to perform but on the day I guess she just didn’t feel like it. She did a speech though!”
As for what their eldest daughter said at the celebration, Billie revealed: “‘I love my mummy and daddy so much, I’m so happy to be here.’
“And then at the end she proposed a toast, saying: ‘All of Mummy’s friends get your prosecco, and all Daddy’s friends get your vodka.’"
The bride continued: “It was hysterical. She was so happy the whole day.”
Billie's best friend Ferne McCann, now 30, also sang at the wedding reception; a surprise which a the guests be treated to a rendition of classic tune Stand By Me.
And speaking of longtime friend’s performance with The Voice star Moni Tivony, Billie exclaimed: “She’d even been round to his house for rehearsals!
“It was such a lovely surprise, she’s got a brilliant voice. Moni sang at the sandbank then we had a saxophone player during the champagne reception, then traditional Maldivian bongo players at dinner.
"It was important to us to include something traditional from the island,” the reality star finished.
After the beach ceremony, mother-of-two Billie changed into her second stunning look on her special day.
The former TOWIE star wore a custom-made Zeynep Kartal white playsuit with a lace overlay for the evening celebrations.
She went barefoot for her first dance with husband Greg, where they did a rehearsed routine to a mash-up of The Blower’s Daughter and the Fergie track A Little Party Never Killed Nobody.
Under the starry Maldives sky, it was a fitting start to party like no other.
