Speaking about her and Andy's nuptials, Becky said, "The sun shone, the people we love were there and it was just the best day."

Speaking to Hello! magazine, the Gold medallist shared details of the touching surprise she had in store for Andy, revealing that she walked down the aisle to Tom Odell's Grow Old With Me, having kept it a secret.

"We chose all the other music together, but I wanted one little thing that was a surprise for him. He kept trying to get it out of me, but I wouldn’t break," she told the publication.

"When Becky started walking towards me with her dad, I just lost it. She had the most beautiful smile on her face," Andy added, saying, "She looked incredible."
