The reality star family beamed with pride on Saturday as they celebrated the nuptials at the All Saints Woodford Wells Church In Essex.

Lydia – who is expecting her first child in February with her ex Lee Cronin – looked glowing in the gown, which was detailed with intricate swirls and fell in ruffles to the ground.

The strapped dress featured a sash detailing around the waist and Lydia wore her blonde locks atop her head for the occasion.

Last week she had enjoyed the baking August bank holiday weather by taking a dip outside – and she showcased her tan in the emsemble for her parents’ wedding.

She clutched a rustic bouquet of sunflowers and fern fronds, to match Debbie’s larger arrangement which also featured white roses and a spray of orchids.

Taking to her social media page she said: ‘It has taken me days to go through all of my comments, my DMs, my WhatsApps, my texts since my article came out in hello this week about my pregnancy.

‘I am one of those people who strive for perfection and maybe this is not the fairy tale I imagined in these circumstances and I was nervous about sharing that with the world.’

She added: ‘I am so grateful for the messages from around the world. I was so nervous it would be perceived badly.

‘I don’t know why, I just worry, worry, worry. But everyone has been amazing. I’ve had DMs from other women – the power of the sisterhood, women in similar circumstances – it’s so inspirational, uplifting.

‘I cannot wait for the rest of my pregnancy and to share this journey with you.’ 


Beaming bright: Debbie smiled constantly as she enjoyed her long-awaited day

Lydia, who recently split from the father of her baby Lee following an on-off two year romance, broke the news of her pregnancy during an interview earlier this month. 

She told Hello! ‘It’s been so hard keeping this a secret. It just feels like the right time for it all to happen for me.

‘It’s not the ideal situation. I waited quite a long time to try for a baby, waited until I thought it was perfect. I’ve always wanted the fairytale.’

Lydia, who said she planned to find out the baby’s sex, also admitted that she was not ‘closing the door’ on her relationship with Lee completely.
