MADE In Chelsea’s Nicola Hughes tied the knot with her businessman beau in a lavish ceremony.
The 31-year-old married Charlie Tupper in front of 108 of their closest friends and family, including her Made In Chelsea co-stars Tiffany and Lucy Watson, and James Dunmore.
Kate Moss’ half-sister, Lottie Moss, was also another celebrity guest at Botleys Mansion in Surrey for the couple’s nuptials on Saturday 21 Augustus.
Nicola and Charlie who got engaged in Ibiza almost a year ago, planned their gorgeous day in only six weeks after originally hoping to tie the knot in France.
“It was a little hectic but we made it happen in the end! I think it was meant to be,” Nicola told OK!.
“We were actually due to get married in France but because of the pandemic we moved it to the UK and did a really quick turnaround in six weeks,” Nicola explained.
“Our wedding in France was going to be a lot smaller, so it was nice we got to have everyone there this way.

“We wanted a three-day wedding abroad, near a vineyard, but the way it turned out it was so nice and I think it was meant to be.”
Walking down the aisle in a Bon Bridé dress, Nicola said she “burst into tears” when she spotted Charlie standing at the altar.
“I was so overwhelmed before I walked down the aisle because it was a bit of a rush and I’m not really great when I have loads of people looking at me, and then when I saw Charlie I just burst into tears,” sy het gese.
“Everyone was overwhelmed with emotion, as well as us.”
The Made In Chelsea star did her own make-up because she “didn’t want too many people fussing over” her and tied her own hair back after having it blow-dried.
Nicola bought her first pair of Manolo Blahniks for her big day and her “blue, borrowed and old was a beautiful bracelet and a necklace my mum gave me with a blue sapphire.”
Her co-stars Tiffany and Lucy Watson were some of Nicola’s bridesmaids and she revealed Lucy would be getting hitched soon to James Dunmore.
“Lucy is getting married this year too. I’m going on Lucy’s hen do soon and then she’s hopefully getting married this summer,” Nicola explained.
The couple had their first dance to At Last during the reception where they served guests a three-course wedding breakfast of saffron prawns on a bed of tomatoes, slow-cooked beef and an apple and raspberry crumble.
The newly wedded couple also served four-tier cake made of up of layers carrot, chocolate, lemon and red velvet cakes.
Nicola and Charlie who have been together for five years, opened up about wanting to start a family soon.
“We’re just really excited to plan our honeymoon and see where we can go, and then we’re going to buy a house and hopefully start a family one day,” sy het gese.
“Obviously that’s something you can’t predict, but in the next year or so we’d love to start a family. Any number would be a blessing, but I’d love to have at least two.”
