Opening up on why she and Colin opted for a more low-key affair, Scarlett said, "I think just keeping it intimate and small made it feel intentional, we wanted it to feel like it had an intentional intimacy as opposed to being something that felt like we were restricted by all these things.

"And there was a lot to take into consideration because of all of the CDC guidelines and making sure everybody was comfortable and safe, following all the Covid protocol."

Scarlett is already a mum to six-year-old daughter Rose from her previous marriage to Romain Dauriac and will be welcoming baby number two very soon, however she has not yet confirmed a due date. 

Congratulations Scarlett and Colin!
