Girls Aloud singer Kimberley Walsh has revealed more details of her romantic wedding to her partner of 14 years, Justin Scott – and released a VERY honest picture of the after-party!
The pair invited a group of family and friends, including several celebrity faces, to an intimate ceremony in Holetown St. James, Barbados, for the ceremony on Saturday 30th January, and it looks like the celebrations lasted all weekend long, as Kimberley shared a picture of the pair doing shots together at a boat party on the Sunday.

Speaking to HELLO! magazine, who photographed the wedding, the new Mrs Scott said that her wedding had been everything she’d hoped for.
‘This wedding, being surrounded by the people we love, has been everything we hoped it would be and so much more,’ she explained. ‘I would do anything to be able to turn back the clock and start it all over again.’
‘There’s so much we haven’t been able to take in, but I’m sure we’ll spend our whole honeymoon reliving it. It’s a day we will cherish for the rest of our lives.’
Justin, a former member of band Triple 8, explained their exotic choice of destination; ‘I don’t think either of us had ever felt that a wedding in the UK was for us, whereas everything about Barbados just felt so right.’
The mother-of-one joked about their big day, saying; ‘I might just push it to the limit on keeping him waiting, since he’s kept me waiting pretty much our whole relationship.’
The pair have been together over a decade and have a son together, 17-month-old Bobby, who acted as pageboy in the ceremony.

Kimberley, 34, added; ‘It’s been worth it [the wait]. It’s lived up to everything we wanted our wedding to be… everyone we love has been waiting for this wedding for so long and are all the more emotional for that.’
Former Girls Aloud bandmates Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and Nicola Roberts were glamorous bridesmaids for their friend’s big day.
Cheryl took to her Instagram on Friday evening to share her emotional thoughts with her 2 million followers; ‘So on this Final Friday of @kimberleywalshofficial being just Miss Walsh I am going to throw it back to this little golden nugget.
‘I don’t know how I ever got so fortunate to find, share & grow the past 14 years of my life with such an amazing, beautiful, kind, considerate and genuine true friend…Justin I love you & thank you forever for making her the happiest most content & best version of herself that she is today.’
