6. Billie Faiers and Greg Shepherd
After having two children together, and being engaged for five years, the TOWIE star finally tied the knot with her long-time boyfriend and she now shares the family name of her children. The celebration was double at the Faiers-Shepherd wedding, as two days after the emotional ceremony, their son celebrated his second birthday. The Maldives wedding turned into a proper Maldives vacation, marking two happy occasions. But not everything was bright and smooth as the pictures show, and in fact, at one moment it seemed like everything was about to fall apart.
When you wait five years for a wedding, you put a lot of expectations on it. And so although eventually nothing went wrong with the wedding, there were some alarming signs leading up to the big day, starting with Billie’s step father almost missing his daughter’s wedding. According to reports, her step father was suffering side effects after mixing sleeping pills with wine, to relieve his fear of flying, and so wasn’t allowed to board his original flight. Eventually he did make it to the Maldive to give his daughter away, but it was a very upsetting moment for the actress when she learned her father might not make it to her wedding.
