Celebrity couple Emma and Matt Willis have been married for an impressive 10 years, and to mark the occasion held a wedding-themed renewal party.
Emma and Matt Willis met in 2005 while she was working at MTV. After a decade of marriage the couple decided to renew their vows in front of their close friends and family.
Celebrity pals in attendance included a very pregnant Giovanna Fletcher and her husband Tom, as well as singer Rochelle Humes and her husband Marvin.
Posting a picture after the ceremony Giovanna wrote: ‘Has 10 years of marriage ever looked so good?! Blooming love these two!! What beauties. So proud to call them my friends. ❤ Xxx.’
Magician Stephen Mulhern had the honour of conducting Emma and Matt’s renewal service and Matt’s former bandmates reunited for the day, giving their first McFly performance in two years.
To make their special day even more romantic Emma asked friends and family to wear wedding dresses to the ceremony. From the pictures posted by her guests it seems this touch went down well!
Captioning a picture of herself and Marvin Rochelle wrote: ‘What a magical day! Yesterday I was back in a wedding dress to celebrate ten years of @emmawillisofficial @mattjwillis marriage, their day really was as special as they are. Here’s to many more. P.S I’d marry him again tomorrow.’
Tom Fletcher’s sweet message said: ‘Yesterday we all got together to celebrate 10 years of marriage for @mattjwillis & @emmawillisofficial, two of the kindest, funniest and totally bonkers people on this planet. Didn’t get any photos of them so here’s me and @mrsgifletcherinstead…and yes, that is a wedding dress.’
Emma had previously expressed her wish to renew her vows with all her friends in wedding dresses because it’s a reminder of their own happy day.
She said: ‘I think it’s just quite nice to wear it again if you can, or just customise it.’
The ceremony took place at Rushton Hall, in Northamptonshire where Matt and Emma first tied the knot 10 years ago.
The couple have three children together, nine-year-old Isabelle, six-year-old Ace and two-year-old Trixie Grace.
Matt posted a sweet message to Emma on Instagram to mark their anniversary.
He began: ‘I actually managed to hang on to her for 10 years… I’m still not sure how?’
Matt continued: ‘I know I’m punching before you all comment that! I am the luckiest guy in the world. I get to spend the rest of my life with this kind beautiful powerful woman.
‘She is the most amazing wife and mother and I could not be more proud to be her husband. Thank you for the best years of my life… ❤❤btw, I took 20 of these photos before I got one where she was not blinking because of the flash. 🤦🏻♂️’.
Emma’s message and picture was a little more lighthearted but still very sweet.
She wrote: ’10 glorious years of annoying the shit out of him 😂 thank you @mattjwillis for always being my partner in crime. Love you babe. Happy anniversary ❤’.
Congratulations to Emma and Matt – here’s to many more happy years together!
