Love Island's Olivia Buckland and Alex Bowen have gotten married after meeting on the show in 2016

Olivia and Alex, who came second to Cara De La Hoyde and Nathan Massey two years ago, have now become the first Love Island coupling to go the distance and tie the knot.

Olivia, 24, and Alex, 27, got married yesterday at Gosfield Hall in Essex - Olivia's hometown. Although neither Alex nor Olivia have posted any snaps of the day on their social media pages, they confirmed that the big day was yesterday in an interview with OK! magazine.

Speaking just weeks before, Alex revealed that he couldn't wait to get Olivia down the aisle, telling the publication: "I just want to get married now. The build up has been too much – it’s nearly two years since we got engaged."

Olivia, who confirmed that she would take Alex's surname when they got hitched, added: "We’re having 100 in the day and 250 in the night. The day will be the lovey-dovey stuff and then the evening is a big party.

"We’ve got a special musical guest and I’m so excited! It’s someone I’ve been a fan of for years. I don’t think anyone will guess as it’s quite random. I could cry now. I’m so emotional about everything."

Olivia also took to Instagram on Friday to reveal she'd had some "last-minute errands to run" for the big day.

Olivia and Alex appeared on Say Yes To The Dress earlier in the year to capture the moment she found the perfect outfit, and they'll be airing their own reality show - Alex And Olivia Said Yes! - on 28 September on channel TLC.

Congratulations to the couple!
