Jess Wright gives inside look at her Mallorca wedding complete with mini bus for NINE suitcases
Jess Wright gave fans an inside look at her "fairytale" Mallorca wedding on Monday night during her reality TV special Jess Wright: The Wedding.
The former TOWIE star, 36, tied the knot with husband William Lee-Kemp in September and during the one-off show, it filmed every single detail from the build up to and on the big day.
Jess, who was left emotional several times, had two wedding dresses for the magical nuptials, 130 guests and even had to hire a mini bus to carry their nine suitcases to the airport.
The couple also had to postpone their wedding from June to September due to the coronavirus pandemic while her best friend was unable to make the wedding due to having a newborn baby as they shared an emotional scene.
In the build up to the wedding, Jess had a "crazy but brilliant" hen do and another surprise party in Essex two weeks before her magical ceremony.
Getting overwhelmed, the reality star admitted that she felt "so special" as she thanked her nearest and dearest for celebrating her big day.
The star was also sweetly gifted Jimmy Choo shoes to walk down the aisle with from former TOWIE co-star and close friend Gemma Collins.
However, the night before they were due to jet to Mallorca for the wedding, Jess was soon left stressed as she admitted: "I couldn't feel more unprepared for my wedding if I tried."
While William, who was yet to pack, frantically rang car hire services as he secured a mini bus to transport their nine suitcases to the airport.
Jess said: "Who books a mini bus just for the cases?"
To which William replied: "Jess, we have nine cases and two walk ons."
With the reality star joking: "Those cases could end up in Luton and we're going Heathrow!", she added: "If I'm ever going to over pack, it's going to be for my wedding week. By the way, my clothes were only in two of those cases the rest was wedding stuff!"
The episode soon took an emotional turn when Jess' brother, Joshua announced she was going to be an aunty as her wedding gift as he revealed wife Hollie Kane Wright was three months pregnant.
During a family meal ahead of the wedding, Joshua said: "Before it's too late, I want to get my wedding present out for Jess. Jess and Will, check this is the right one, I didn't know when the right time was. I wanted to give you that…"
Opening the gift, Jess burst out crying as she realised she was going to be an aunty as she received a personalised baby grow and a baby scan snap off her brother.
Speaking in a VT, she said: "I am over the moon, I can't believe Josh and Hollie are having a baby."
With William adding: 'It literally took me by complete surprise, I cannot believe that."
Jess continued: "Complete and utter shock, I'm going to be an aunt. Oh I love kids, you're going to be an uncle!"
Other brother, Mark Wright, was also left emotional as he said: "For the 18 months we've had, it's been so stressful for you two, watching how upset you two have been. For this to happen, as well at same time, this is why I love family."
Jess and William added that it was the "best news ever" and that it had made their trip.
However, things took a stressful turn the day before the wedding where Jess got overwhelmed during rehearsals as she admitted: "I'm not enjoying anything right now. One moment so happy and next stressed."
The reality star even had to take two minutes as she burst into tears, saying that it was "incredibly stressful" and she wanted everything to go perfectly.
However, things went smoothly on the big day where she was supported by her bridal party ahead of arriving at the stunning church.
Explaining her reason for having such a big bridal party, which included her brother Mark's wife Michelle Keegan, Jess said: "The reason I had such a big bridal party is I've got a lot of women in my life. I've got quite a lot of cousins then I've got six best friends, I've got a sister, I've got three sister-in-laws.
"So I just thought to myself, do you know what? I'm not going to upset anyone, I love them all, I think it will just look beautiful so I just decided to have everyone."
Jess also gave her brother, Mark, a special role as he was master of ceremony and hilariously reminded guests that he was the one who set up his sister and William.
Ahead of the wedding, William was left in tears over Jess' wedding gift which was a pair of personalised cufflinks and a picture of his late mother.
At the church later in the episode, William was left in tears as he watched Jess, who was fashionably late, walk up the aisle in a gorgeous Milla Nova gown complete with a dazzling diamond Maria Elena Bridal crown.
After saying "I do", the duo shared a tender smooch with Jess admitting: "We had quite a long first kiss, kiss of relief!"
At the reception, the reality star changed into a second gown by Vivienne Westwood as she revealed that she had fallen in love with two wedding dresses and thought: "Why not do both!"
During the meal, Jess was in tears over her father Mark Wright Sr's speech, where he said how proud he was of her and that he loved William as a son-in-law.
The reality star was left equally emotional over William's speech as he sweetly vowed: "I promise I will look after you forever and ever!"
The episode ended with the newly weds cutting their cake, having their first dance and guests letting off balloons and sparklers.
Speaking at the end in a VT, Jess said: "Against all the odds, we are here. It's the most amazing day of our life, we are on that dance floor and loving every second of it.
"It's been a year and a half of ups and downs, that's for sure, really quite emotional to think we made it and we didn't know if we would at one point."
To which William added: "It's been one hell of a rollercoaster, we got there, we did it!"
Jess continued: "My heart is so full and I'm just feeling so grateful and blessed that we got to do it. It's been amazing, it's been my fairytale, dream come true.
"We're more in love than ever and looking for the future, babies next?"
