“It worked out in our favour as a lot of people assumed we did it small because of COVID.”

Laura and Iain had also planned on keeping tight lipped on their ceremony.

She added: “We weren’t going to do a big reveal. But then one of the newspapers got hold of our marriage certificate and ran a story and I got loads of messages from people going, ‘Congratulations on your wedding!’

“I felt guilty because people with good intentions had seen it online. hat’s why we ended up posting a picture saying, this happened, thank you for all your messages.”

Laura and Iain rung in the New Year by telling fans they had got married.

It was a “magical, perfect ceremony” for the pair when they tied the knot.

In a lengthy message, she wrote: “Entering 2021 like… A year ago Iain asked me to marry him and we had the most magical, perfect ceremony. We loved having it to ourselves.

“We had been planning the perfect celebration and I will forever be so thankful that’s what we got. We have never spoken publicly about our engagement or wedding. Back at the time we never felt the need to say anything as it’s all such a personal experience. We also were too busy enjoying it!

“We’ve never shared this picture before now but a lot of people have contacted us and congratulated us the last month with good intentions so here’s to good news!”
