Loose Woman star Stacey Solomon married her partner actor Joe Swash on Sunday with a "Jewish blessing" at their home, Pickle Cottage in Essex.

According to newspaper reports, the couple exchanged vows in a marquee in their back garden, lit by fairy lights.

They were joined by family and friend, and their children Rex, three and baby Rose, as well as Stacey’s sons Leighton and Zachary and Joe’s son Harry. A legal ceremony will follow.

A friend told the MailOnline: “'It was important to Stacey for her day to uphold her strong Jewish values, as well as be a modern and fun day for everyone.”

Stacey is a former pupil of King Solomon High School. Her father, David, is a wedding photographer, well known among the Strictly Orthodox community.

In 2010, when she won I’m a Celebrity get Me Out of Here, the singer and TV presenter told the JC: "I'm so proud of being Jewish. For me, religion starts with being a good person and that's what I'm trying to be."
