The real-life soap couple tied the knot in 2017 at a beautiful ceremony in New Forest.

"Carley thought I waved and so she waved back."

Carley added: "I felt so calm yet so excited. I just couldn't stop smiling and giggling. It felt like our plan had come together perfectly and I was about to say 'I do' to my best friend in front of everyone we loved. It was magical."
