Stacey Solomon shares update on plans for wedding to Joe Swash

Stacey Solomon has said her wedding to Joe Swash is on pause while the couple try to get a licence to get married in the back garden of their new home.

The pair got engaged at Christmas and recently moved into a house in Essex that they have dubbed “Pickle Cottage”.

Solomon, 31, has been showing off the large garden on her Instagram feed and said the move has given her second thoughts about her wedding plans.

She told Cat Deeley on ITV’s Lorraine: “We had the venue and we didn’t know we were going to move here. We saw the house and thought, ‘Let’s go for it’.

“Now we’re here, we’d actually like to get married in the garden. We’re trying to see if we can do that.

“We don’t know if we’ll be able to get a licence and stuff.

“The wedding planning is a bit on halt at the moment. It’s all just come at once, so many of these things have been in the planning for years… I feel so lucky, privileged and grateful and I just think you have to take any opportunity when it comes.”

Loose Women and X Factor star Solomon and EastEnders actor Swash, 39, have been dating since 2015. They are both former winners of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

Solomon and Swash, who is best known for playing Mickey Miller on the long-running BBC soap, have a one-year-old son named Rex together.

Solomon also has two children from previous relationships while Swash has another son.

She previously revealed Swash popped the question during a walk in the woods on Christmas Eve.
