The 62-year-old TV presenter took to Instagram bright and early on Monday morning to share a beautiful vintage snap of herself and husband Steve Smith on their wedding day in Dundee back in 1992. She wrote: “Celebrating THIRTY YEARS today! Thanks for all the laughs and silliness @steveandangussmith xxx #weddinganniversary #thirtyyears #happy #fun #goodtimes #laughs.” Lorraine has previously said that she regrets her Princess Diana-inspired wedding dress, but fans found the gorgeous photograph inspiring.

Speaking of pearl wedding anniversaries, Lorraine shared some pearls of wisdom for brides-to-be back on her 25th Wedding Anniversary. She said: “It doesn’t matter if your napkins don’t match the flowers, or something falls over. None of that matters. Nobody’s going to go away saying, ‘Oh I didn’t really like the favours. I didn’t really like the flowers.’ It’s about the joy and how much you enjoyed it.”

Lorraine also had some regrets about her dress. When the star presented ‘Wedding Day Winners’ for the BBC back in 2017, she reflected on her dress: “It was very, very traditional. My dress… Uyuy-yuy. It was 1992 so it was kind of like a Princess Diana bouffant thing with big sleeves – oh God. We could all get in it! We could all fit in my dress. I’ve still got it.”
