The actress wore her raven locks in curls and swept them up off her pretty face, which was covered with a slick of make-up including a smokey-eye.

Kym’s dress featured a large decorative bow on the back as well as intricate detailing, while she added a long veil to the bridal ensemble.  

Speaking to Ok! magazine about her gown, she said: ‘It was made by Carolina Herrera. It was tightly fitted to the bodice and then at the back it was all beads and pearls,’ she explained.

‘Then it went out in a big A-line. It had pockets in it, which I loved as I was able to put bits in for the day! It had a huge bow on the back – but it was understated. It was a dress that made an impact, but not over the top.’

The TV presenter, 60, donned a figure-hugging black midi dress along with a gold floral headpiece. 

Taking to Instagram, she wrote: ‘Soooo my big bud Clare and I went to our Kym’s wedding yesterday at Sandhurst. It was BEAUTIFUL. 

‘Major Scott and the new Mrs Ratcliff were entrancing and so in love. A properly gorgeous life-enhancing day ❤️❤️❤️❤️ Life is good….xx’.

Kym previously told OK! magazine it was her dream for her father to walk her down the aisle. 

She said: ‘My mum and dad absolutely adore Scott, they think he’s wonderful. This [wedding] is a bit of good news, because dad’s not too well, but responding well to his latest treatment.

‘They can’t cure him, but their hope is that it slows everything down and we get some good time with him. I think the main thing is taking the pain away. He’s being taken care of and he doesn’t let things get him down too much.’

Kym announced her engagement by sharing a snap taken at the moment the Army Major beau proposed.

The couple had been dating since July 2018 but have had to endure long stints of separation as Scott serves abroad, with Kym admitting last April that they had at the time been apart for seven months.

She previously told The Sun that the Covid lockdown has meant Scott was spending more time at home.

Kym said: ‘He’s actually home. He was due to go to staff college in September but we’ve ended up spending most of the past year together.’

‘I feel so lucky to be in this situation. It has given me the opportunity to have more time with Scott, my son David, my daughters Emilie and Polly and the rest of my family. I’m not taking those things for granted.’

Back in December 2018, Kym revealed she and Scott were facing six months apart as the soldier was due to return to Afghanistan for duty in the Parachute Regiment.

Despite the long-distance looming, the star was resolute in her belief that their relationship will survive the strain.

Kym told The Sun at the Military Awards 2018: ‘He is due to go back to Afghanistan next year for six months. It is tough, but I know we can make it work and we will be fine.

‘He’s just got back from a training exercise in Kenya, so tonight was the first time we have seen each other in weeks.’

Kym had split from Matt Baker three months before sparking up a romance with Scott, after a two year romance.

She was first in a relationship with builder David Cunliffe before her rise to fame in 2001’s Popstars, and the couple had a son David, 25, and daughter Emilie, 25, during a five-year relationship.
