Louise, 26, and Jay, 27, posted a series of snaps of their special day to a website set up especially for their wedding.

The pair also streamed a live feed of their nuptials so fans could share in the celebrations.

The site read: 'Louise and Jay wanted to offer a special thank you to their superb fans who have given them such great support since their love blossomed in the public eye live on Big Brother 2011.
