Holly Willoughby Reveals Her One Big Wedding Day Regret

by helen@hitched

Holly Willoughby revealed the big regret she has from her wedding day as she gave advice to a bride on This Morning.

The ITV mid-morning show hosted a wedding live on air on Thursday morning at the Royal Albert Hall for couple Sarah Roustoby and Shane Maddison.

Holly, 37, who married her husband Dan Baldwin in 2007, confessed that she ended up ruining her wedding dress when her heels got the better of her.

She said: “I wanted the massive dress and the towering heels.

“But I regretted it and I ended up walking around barefoot for the whole day.

“It was fun but the hem of my dress is ruined now.”

She was joined at the Royal Albert Hall by Phillip Schofield and ITV co-stars Lisa Snowdon and Alison Hammond for the first ever wedding from the famous venue in its 150 year old history.

Sarah, a PR manager, and Shane, a smart meter fitter and former Marine, won a competition on the show to find a couple most deserving of a big white wedding.

The couple, who share 10-month-old daughter Evelyn, have been together 13 years and became engaged four years ago in Las Vegas.

Ahead of their vows, Holly took the bride aside for a few words of advice.

"Pace yourself, enjoy it… remember all those small moments… it goes so fast. I know it’s a cliché but it’s one of the best days of your life," she said.

"Make sure you have comfortable shoes," she added, wary of the one regret she had on her day.

Among the surprises that the show had put together for their dream day was a performance from The Kingdom Choir, who famously performed at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding in May.

Sarah walked down the aisle to John Legend's All Of Me, leaving Holly in tears as they said their vows.

The couple enjoyed their first dance live on TV to Lovely Day, also sung by the choir.
