Dancing on Ice star Laura Hamilton has melted hearts all over the country by getting married to insurance broker Alex Goward.
In exclusive photographs and an interview in this week’s HELLO! magazine, the television presenter says of her nuptials:
“The day was perfect in every way. Even better than I imagined it would be. I feel more complete now.”
In a nod to the ITV talent show, Laura walked down the aisle of the Surrey church where the ceremony was held to the appropriately named Ice Dance from the film Edward Scissorhands.
And the movie references continued at the reception, with the newlyweds entering the room to the theme tune from Rocky.
“Alex and I both love film scores,” Laura told HELLO!
“I didn’t want something traditional; it didn’t feel right. When I heard Ice Dance it sounded magical, then when I found out the name, it was so appropriate.”
Later on, at the reception, Laura serenaded her new husband with a rendition of Whitney Houston’s Saving All My Love For You.
“She sang with all her heart, it was very emotional,” Alex said. “People don’t realise how good Laura’s voice is – it’s another one of her amazing talents.
The wedding was unbelievable, the most memorable day of our lives. It just cements our love for one another.”
Stars including Amanda Lamb, Michelle Heaton and Jeff Brazier, with girlfriend Nicola Tappenden, all attended the big day, as well as Jayne Torvill and fellow show contestants Sam Attwater, Denise Welch and Elen Rivas.
Laura’s old professional skating partner, Colin Ratushniak, was also a guest.
Amanda Lamb told HELLO!: “You can tell just from looking at them that they are besotted with one another. It’s been a beautiful day.”
