The Natural History Museum was filled with thousands of candles and hundreds of white flowers for the ceremony, only the second held at the museum and the first gay marriage.
Ollie said of the atmosphere: ‘There was an aura about it. Everyone was wearing masks, there were candles everywhere, it was dark outside and it felt magical, almost gothic. There was something very Dickensian about it.’
Original Made In Chelsea cast member Felstead, 30, gave a speech and as the couple read vows they admit they had composed themselves.
Gareth said: ‘I felt such mixed emotions. I was crying but also couldn’t stop smiling. In my vows, I said, “it has taken us 12 years to get here but it was a journey worth taking. We have grown so much over that time and this has all come together and happened at the right time”.’
The ceremony will be shown on E4’s Made In Chelsea on December 14 at 9pm.
