Strictly Come Dancing star Karen Hauer walked down the aisle in a “fairytale dress” to marry the “love of my life” Jordan Wyn-Jones in an intimate country ceremony.
The couple tied the knot in Chewton Glen in Hampshire on June 7, at the same location where 32-year-old fitness pro Wye-Jones popped the question in December.
Strictly Come Dancing co-stars Luba Mushtuk, who was a bridesmaid, and Janette Manrara were among the guests celebrating the happy day.
Professional dancer Hauer, who wore a handmade tulle dress and floral appliques by Berta, told Hello! magazine: “This is my fairy tale dress. It’s something I never thought I’d pick but I immediately knew it was ‘the dress’ when I tried it on.
“I feel like me in it.”
Speaking of her ceremony, Hauer added: “It was exactly what we imagined – only better. It was like a breath of fresh air for us.
“Everything was easy and happy.”
The wedding comes after the pros of Strictly traveled the UK to perform their 36-date live tour.
Hauer, who split from former co-star Kevin Clifton in 2018 after three years of marriage, said, “I think people will be surprised by the news.
“Having recently been on tour with Strictly, I couldn’t talk about the wedding out loud, it was precious to have our little secret in our back pocket, but it’s nice to come out and say ‘Hey, we’re married.’ ”
The groom, who wore a three-piece black suit, expressed his emotion on the wedding day.

He said: “The second I turned around and saw her, I started gushing. It was something I had been looking forward to for a while. She looked amazing.”
The couple, who went Instagram official in July 2021, met on social media when Wyn-Jones was based in Australia for work.
Hauer said: “Jordan followed me on Instagram and I followed him, we would like and comment on each other’s posts.
“I never thought I would find the love of my life on the other side of the world and that we would meet in such a unique way. But I wouldn’t change it for the world.”
Wyn-Jones added, “I knew I was going to marry Karen the first day I met her, but I thought it would be a little weird to show up at her front door and then ask her.”
