The former I’m A Celebrity star shared a photo wearing a smart three-piece suit, while his now wife looked beautiful in a billowing off-the-shoulder gown by Victoria Sanders. 

James enlisted his bandmates Brad Simpson, Connor Ball, and Tristan Evans to serve as best men on the day, with the singer sharing individual photos of his pals on his page.

The band all looked dapper in black suits and ties with white shirts as they smiled for the camera.

Kirstie also shared a black and white snap of the couple with their pet dog, writing alongside it: ‘Everything I could ever ask for. 30/10/21.’ 

She also shared a glimpse of the couple’s gorgeous table autumnal décor which featured fairy lights, beautiful floral arrangements, candles and burnt orange table runners. 

James and Kirstie were originally set to tie the knot in November 2020, but revealed in August of that year that they were delaying their nuptials by a year because of the Covid-19 restrictions. 

James, who at that point had been engaged to Kirstie for 22 months already, told how he wasn’t keen on the idea of having a small, socially-distanced reception.

He told the Metro: ‘I think we’re going to postpone it. 

‘It is meant for November, but the problem is that the government haven’t really set out any plans for how weddings can go back to normal. Thirty people can be at a reception, but have to be socially distanced.

‘We have elderly relatives in Liverpool who would have to travel down to Dorset where we’re getting married. Kirstie and I are thinking it’s best to postpone it until Halloween next year.’

The musician announced his engagement in Hello! in 2019, and revealed he enlisted the help of Harry Redknapp when it came to choosing the ring.

He decided to pop the question during his time on I’m A Celebrity at the end of 2018, but waited to get down on one knee until a New Year’s break to the Lake District with model and environmental student Kirstie.

Kirstie said of the unexpected proposal: ‘At first I said, “what are you doing?” I thought he was holding a sock because he had the ring box at an odd angle.

‘I kept saying, “are you joking?” And he hadn’t actually asked me to marry him because he was crying.’

‘I was crying,’ James added. ‘She said, “aren’t you going to ask me then?” So I did.’
