Wedding bells have rung for Hollyoaks’ star couple, Claire Cooper and Emmett Scanlan!
Former Hollyoaks actors Claire and Emmett revealed they got married, and have been sharing details of their special day.
The pair, who met on the hit soap, released details of their special day to Hello! magazine, and it sounds like a romnatic affair.
The trendy ceremony took place in a former warehouse in New York with family and friends, many of whom were their former Hollyoaks co-stars.
Taking about their special day, Emmett said: ‘It’s something I’ll never forget. Everyone got behind the wedding with such love that it was overwhelming at times.’
The bride also shared details of her stunning wedding dress, a floor-length creation by designer Claire Mischevani, from Shropshire.
According to the designer, it took hundreds of hours to make the dress, which was embellish by hand.
Speaking of how she picked the gown for her big day, Claire said: ‘I think you have to listen to your heart. I’ve watched so many episodes of Say Yes to the Dress – it’s my guilty pleasure – and I am mortified at how hideous friends and family can be. I hasten to add that no-one I know would be like that, but I felt that I needed to do my dress fittings by myself.’
The couple at the British Soap Awards in 2011, when they started dating
Emmett and Claire met when they both starred in Hollyoaks. Emmett became famous for his role as villain Brendan Brady, from 2010 to 2013, while Claire starred as Jacqui McQueen from 2006 to 2013.
The couple got engaged in December 2014, after three years of dating. At the time, Emmett shared their lovely news in a romantic Instagram post showing the two sharing a kiss and Claire’s beautiful engagement ring, with the caption: ‘There are over a million ways to ask the question, but only one real answer… #WorldsLongestHangoverStartsToday.’ Aww, Emmett!
They first made their relationship public in 2011, during a romantic holiday.
Since leaving Hollyoaks, Emmett bagged the role of Detective Constable Glen Martin in The Fall, alongside Fifty Shades of Grey’s Jamie Dornan. Claire will soon be in drama In the Club, and she’s also been on American TV series A.D.: The Bible Continues, co-starring with her then fiancé and now husband Emmett.
Congratulations to the lovely couple!
