Olivia Buckland and Alex Bowen talk wedding plans

Written by Katie Byrne, published 10th january



Love Island stars Olivia Buckland and Alex Bowen have spoken about their wedding plans for the first time.

The couple - who met whilst filming the ITV Be show last year - announced their engagement on New Year's Eve, following a proposal from Alex whilst the pair were on holiday in New York.

Talking to OK! magazine about their wedding plans, bride-to-be Olivia revealed she already had a rough date in mind for their nuptials, explaining: "I've always said I really want to get married in September, so I'm gunning for September 2018".

She continued: "That's around 20 months away, so it gives us enough time to plan. If that doesn't happen then it will be 2019".

Olivia also admitted the pair are planning to tie the knot at home in the UK, explaining: "I don't think I would want to get married abroad as I want everyone to be there".

She added: "I love all the manor houses with gardens and I want a marquee outside".

Ooh - us too!

Olivia also revealed she knows what style of wedding dress she wants, telling OK!: "My dress has got to be one step further. I want it to be tight with a fishtail at the bottom".

Our favourite detail of all? The couple's puppy Reggie will play ring-bearer at the celebration. Er - adorable.

Addressing speculation that they're too young to be getting married, Alex said: "Because of Love Island, it feels like we've been together for a year and a half. It felt completely natural to me and I'm really happy, so it feels right. I don't reall care what other people think. If I love the girl and I want to marry her, then I'm going to marry her".

Hear, hear!

Alex concluded: "When we first came out of the villa, people doubted us, but we're having the first Love Island wedding".

And needless to say, we can't wait to see what they've got planned for the celebration.
