Why does Stacey Solomon need a second wedding?
The loved-up couple have celebrated with an intimate ‘wedding’ at home this weekend. However, Stacey revealed on her Instagram Stories that it isn’t technically legal.
Answering a message sent to her Instagram account, the star told fans: “To get married anywhere legally, the place has to have a ‘civil ceremony’ licence. One of the requirements of this liscence is that the premises must be made ‘readily available’ for ceremonies…”
She joked: “As this is our private family home and we need it to remain that way we couldn’t go for that option.”
Additionally, she revealed: “So we are having a relaxed private blessing in front of our closest friends and family and a ceromony of our love to each other and we will register our marriage legally after…”

How long have Joe and Stacey been together?

Additionally, mum-of-four Stacey has been excitedly sharing snippets of her wedding plans.
Her Instagram fans have been treated to sneak peeks in the lead up to the big day. However, the star revealed she was putting her phone away to enjoy the day so no glimpses of the dress for fans!
In previous interviews, Stacey revealed that all four sons – including stepson Harry – would be page boys and also walk her down the aisle with her dad. Daughter Rose is set to be a flower girl too.
All members of the Swash-Solomon household are involved too, making it a true family affair. Even dogs Peanut and Teddy were rumoured to be wearing suits and ties too!
