The pair tied the knot in front of friends and family only four months after announcing their engagement back in July.
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.’

Despite the long-distance looming, the star was resolute in her belief that their relationship would survive the strain.
Kym had split from Matt Baker three months before sparking up a romance with Scott, after a two year romance.
