Danielle Lloyd has revealed the first pictures of her opulent Dubai wedding to partner Michael O’Neill.
The Celebrity Big Brother star looked stunning in a ruffled fishtail dress with an embellished strapless lace bodice, while Michael chose a dark navy suit.
The happy couple said “I do” in a beach ceremony in front of the iconic Burj Al Arab Jumeirah, one of Dubai’s most luxurious hotels, on the 6th April.
Speaking to OK! magazine about the day, Danielle said: “It feels like happy ever after for me as I’ve been through hard times.
“I’ve had wedding blues because it was so perfect – I’ve been bursting into tears every day!”
The former glamour model admitted that they had gone “overboard” with the cost of the wedding but it was worth the price.
Danielle, who has three sons from her former marriage to footballer Jamie O’Hara and shares one-and-a-half-year-old son Ronnie with electrician Michael, revealed the secret roles that her boys all had in her wedding.
Archie, eight, and Harry, seven, were best man, while six-year-old George was ring bearer – but it didn’t stop the boys causing a bit of mayhem.
“Ronnie was naughty but he’s only a baby, and it’ll be funny to show him the photos when he’s older. All the other boys were brilliant. All of them did get in the sea in their suits, but boys will be boys!”
Danielle’s divorce from Jamie was granted in December 2014 and she met Michael in summer 2015.
He popped the question in a private room at Claridge’s hotel with a custom-made ring just six months later on Valentine’s Day 2016.
Danielle said of her new husband, “It feels normal and we have trust – this relationship is so different to anything I’ve had before, it’s forever.”
The couple are now on honeymoon in the Maldives, staying at the Amilla Fushi resort.
She revealed that the couple are already planning to try for a new baby, with Danielle desperate for a girl and even ready to consider adoption.
“By the end of this year we’ll start trying for a baby. I watched Instant Family on the plane and I said to Michael: ‘Shall we adopt a baby?’
“I know if you can have your own it’s nice, but if you adopt you’re doing so much for that child,” she said.
