Former EastEnders actress Brooke Kinsella is one happily married lady! The gorgeous actress tied the knot with long term partner Simon Boardley in a magical winter wonderland wedding on Thursday 28 December – and the bride could not have looked more stunning. The newly married star shared a beautiful picture on her Instagram showing her walking up the aisle with her new husband after exchanging vows in front of close family and friends.
Dressed in a sweeping ivory gown, Brooke - who met her now husband Simon through his close friend, popular TV personality and former Strictly Come Dancing contestant Judge Robert Rinder – can be seen smiling broadly as guests shower them with silver confetti. The bride simply captioned the photo: "Nailed it".

Earlier in the day, Brooke took a moment to pay tribute to her brother Ben, who was tragically killed in a knife attack in 2008 when he was out celebrating the end of his GCSEs in London. Brooke, who has since been awarded and MBE for her tireless campaign against knife crime, shared a picture of a clear sunny sky and the stunning exterior of the Surrey country estate where the wedding took place and captioned it: "There was never any doubt my little angel would bring the sun out for me today".
