Olivia Buckland and Alex Bowen got married earlier this month, two years after meeting.

The couple, who starred on Love Island back in 2016, tied the knot in a lavish ceremony at Gosfield Hall, in Essex.

And new pictures show they were joined by a string of famous faces – including Gabby Allen and Towies Pete Wicks – as they said their I dos.

However, Cara De La Hoyde was noticeably absent from the celebrations.

The bride, 24, kept all eyes on her in a fishtail, lace wedding dress, by Enzoani, on her big day, with a sheer back.

While her new husband – who arrived by helicopter – looked dapper in a blue suit, paired with a salmon pink tie.

Alex opened up about their glamourous day, which took place on 15 September, and admitted the whole thing felt like they were in a film.

I cant describe it with words. It felt like we were in a movie. It was surreal, the 26-year-old told OK! Magazine.

I cried when I looked at her. I was actually crying before she got out of the car!

Olivia confessed she broke down the second she laid eyes on her groom, explaining: When we saw each other we just burst into tears.

I was really trying to hold it together and compose myself, because I didnt want to fully lose it.

The wedding was overwhelmingly perfect. It feels like it didnt happen because it was so perfect. I had a vision and it all fitted into place like a puzzle.

I was totally speechless the day after.

But while the couple have taken their relationship to the next level, they admitted it will be a while before they start a family together.

Weve got such busy careers. Next year is going to be even bigger than this year, Liv added.

There are loads of things in the pipeline that I cant reveal yet. I know you cant quite beat the wedding, but career-wise weve got so much going on. Kids are going to have to wait, Im afraid.

While Alex and Olivia were joined by some of their Love Island co-stars at the ceremony, it seems as though Cara De La Hoyde missed out on the big day, after being taken off bridesmaid duties.

The mum-of-one, who won the ITV2 show with Nathan Massey ahead of the happy couple, previously revealed she wouldnt be attending.

Im a bit upset about the situation, but its Olivias wedding and I want her to have the best day, she previously told The Sun.

Whatever she wants, is up to her and I hope its amazing.

But now I have my own bridesmaids, I dont think I would be able to do that to my bridesmaids, and still be like, “Oh, come to my wedding.”
