The Made in Chelsea cast love an excuse for a champagne-fuelled party, and what better time to raise a glass than for a show-stopping wedding? From Lucy Watson's idyllic Greek proposal to Ollie Locke's romantic vows during the pandemic, take a look at the weddings and engagements of the stars of MIC…
Ollie Locke and Gareth Locke decided to get married during the coronavirus pandemic and shared their stunning wedding album exclusively with HELLO! magazine. The stars tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony at London's Natural History Museum with just 13 guests including many on-screen pals.
In September 2020, Binky shared the wonderful news that she is engaged to Max Fredrik Darnton. She uploaded this romantic snap of them kissing in a field as she held her left hand up to the camera, adding the caption: "On Friday morning, on their way to the duck pond, Max asked India for her permission to ask her mummy to marry him. I love you Max - you bring out the best in me. I'm so lucky."
Millie Mackintosh and Hugo Taylor announced their engagement in July 2017, after rekindling their previous romance. In a throwback snap, Millie is beaming with happiness after her Greek proposal as she shows off the huge diamond on her left hand.
The Made in Chelsea stars went on to have a beautiful wedding in June 2018 at Whithurst Park in West Sussex. The bride looked gorgeous in a puff sleeved gown while Hugo looked dapper in a white tuxedo jacket.
Oliver Proudlock secretly married Emma Louise Connolly back in 2020, announcing it earlier this year. They said their vows at St Albans Church before having a very small reception at The Ned. Emma wowed in a bespoke Pronovias Atelier gown, and she has since shared photographs of the dress fitting process.
He forged a letter supposedly from the hotel inviting them on a boat trip, when in fact this was a ploy and the luxury day out was entirely devised by James. "The boat was stunning… we went on a crazy beautiful tour of some private islands. We went to take a photo together and there he was on one knee," Lucy recalled. She admitted she was in complete shock when James popped the question: "My heart didn’t beat for like three seconds."
The happy couple are currently planning their wedding together, and they are hoping to tie the knot abroad. They have travelled to Greece to view wedding venues, and Lucy has shared a couple on her Instagram.
Louise Thompson and Ryan Libbey
Louise and Ryan got engaged in 2018, and although they had planned to tie the knot the following year, they subsequently decided to put the wedding on hold.
Speaking to Celebrity Secrets, Louise explained they decided not to "rush into anything" and have postponed their Christmas-themed wedding. "There’s so much going on in our lives at the moment, so we want to wait until we feel really ready for it," she said.
