The couple had to scale down their celebrations due to the current lockdown roadmap (opens in new tab) for weddings which permit up to 15 people in COVID-19 secure venues, and with international travel restricted (opens in new tab), Victoria revealed their 'big day Caribbean-style' would take place when allowed.

Victoria shared the same photos to her Instagram and captioned it, 'Today we officially became Mr & Mrs Cipriani in a small intimate setting with our nearest and dearest. We are looking forward to our big day Caribbean style when travel is permitted. Cheers to love, laughter, but especially to our happily ever after. Our adventure begins 👰🏻🤵🏻 @dannycipriani87 I love you ♥️'

Victoria wore a cream knitted ribbed jumper tucked into a high-waisted midi skirt with a tie waist, and was accessorized with Louis Vuitton patterned scarf and a pair of nude heels for her big day. And Danny opted for a relaxed outfit, wearing a white untucked shirt, with a pair of dark grey and black speckled trousers, and completed his look with a pair of chunky black trainers with a white sole.
