Reality TV star Billie Faiers marries her partner Greg Shepherd in a lavish ceremony in the Maldives after a five year engagement.
After eight years together, two children and a five year engagement, reality TV favourite, Billie Faiers, 29, married her partner Greg Shepherd, 33 in the place they hold close to their hearts, the Maldives.
The island of Kuramathi held 95 of Billie and Greg’s closest family and friends as they celebrated their nuptials during a week in the sun. Billie shared an Instagram post the day after her wedding, with her atop Greg’s shoulders in the pool, captioned as ‘Maldives Babbbyyyyyy’ followed with a blue emoji heart. Over the years, the couple has frequented the holiday location and got engaged there on a private island shortly after falling pregnant with their first child, Nelly.
On Tuesday, Greg arrived by speedboat to his wedding ceremony, perfectly matching the destination wedding style. He met his soon to be wife Billie, who stunned in a Berta dress complete with fishtail, lace and crystal embellishment. She comments how because the ceremony wasn’t taking place in a church, she felt more confident about wearing a risque dress. Billie describes their beach ceremony as a ‘fairy tale’, while Greg comments how Billie blew him away and thought she looked ‘incredible in her dress.’
The wedding party included Billie’s sister Sam, who is also a reality TV favourite, who she shares the hit show The Mummy Diaries with,and Billie’s two children, Nelly who is four and Arthur who is two. Best friend Ferne McCann, surprised the bride and groom by performing ‘Stand By Me’ at their reception, with Billie commenting she has a ‘brilliant voice.’
Talking about her day, Billie gushes ‘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.’
Before setting off for their honeymoon, the family of four celebrated Arthur’s second birthday with their many guests! The pair have now jetted off together, and are sticking around the Indian Ocean to soak up some more of paradise.
We can’t wait to see more photos of this stunning destination wedding!
