Olly added: ‘I was on the brink of crying at any moment. When my nephews walked down the aisle, I was gone, then when Amelia came in – oh my God! My mum said she hasn’t seen me cry like that since I was four years old!’
Amelia enlisted the help of Australia-based bridal house Pallas Couture for a number of months to perfect her wedding dress.
The garment was decorated with beaded floral embroidery, and featured detached sleeves and a long sweeping train with a floor-length veil.
Olly said: ‘Seeing Amelia walk down the aisle was something I’ll never ever forget. She looked out of this world.’
The wedding, which was nicknamed Murs Fest, saw a number of big musical names perform, including Olly himself and fellow singer Craig David.
A total of 71 people joined the couple on the Friday night for a BBQ before they exchanged vows the following afternoon.
On the Sunday morning, a further 70 of Olly and Amelia’s family and friends arrived on Osea Island by boat, including Olly’s television personality friend Mark Wright.
Olly’s house band and singer Katie Holmes-Smith – who is currently performing with Adele at her residency in Las Vegas – took to the stage, followed by Heart FM DJ Pandora Christie.

Olly and Amelia who met on Instagram in 2019, went public with their romance in 2020, and enjoyed a total of four stag and hen parties between them ahead of their nuptials.
The week before the wedding, Olly admitted he’d turned into a ‘groomzilla’ after discovering a love of flowers and irritating his wedding planner.
He told the Mirror: ‘I’m a groomzilla. I never expected it, I thought I’d be the opposite. I’m like, “No, no, no. Get rid of that, change that, move that”.
‘I didn’t know I cared so much about what the flowers look like but, honest to God, if I’m reincarnated, I’m coming back as a florist.’
Olly joked: ‘There’s a lady helping us plan the wedding and I said to her, ”I don’t want ugly chairs, you know those horrible school chairs that are horrendous”. She said, ”Olly, I’ve been doing this for a long time…”’
Olly and Amelia enjoyed wild stag and hen parties ahead of their nuptials last month, with the bride-to-be jetting to Marbella with a group of pals.
