It wasn’t just the anticipation of becoming Mrs Mark Wright that made Michelle Keegan emotional ahead of her wedding day.
The ex-Coronation Street actress, 28, was incredibly moved when she saw how her venue was coming together.
Michelle and Mark, 28, chose Suffolk’s Hengrave Hall for their romantic nuptials on 24 May, which they’d had decorated with stunning 12ft-high flower trees.
‘She was just absolutely amazed with her flowers, she was in tears,’ Urban Design Flowers’ Steve Betts tells the Birmingham Mail.
‘They’re both lovely people. Mark is a really genuine, down-to-earth guy and it’s the same with Michelle. We met their family and they were the same.’
It’s no wonder Michelle was so elated about the gorgeous foliage – she’d spent a long time working on her perfect bouquets.
‘Because I’m quite small, I didn’t want anything too big and I didn’t want anything too heavy for me to carry as well,’ Michelle tells Interflora.
‘My dress is not a simple dress, so I didn’t want anything to look too much with it. I wanted a bouquet which was more rounded, easy for me to carry, all white and it would sit well with my whole outfit.’
Not entirely surprisingly, Michelle’s admitted that Mark had ‘no say’ in the flowers. However, they were both keen on a ‘clean’ Hollywood Glamour look.

After getting hitched, Mark and Michelle jetted off for a *very* romantic honeymoon in the Maldives and Dubai.
The couple made us ludicrously jealous with their Instagram uploads and now Michelle’s made us even MORE envious by revealing just how blissful the trip was.
‘As soon as we landed [in the Maldives], we knew we had chosen somewhere that was unbelievable,’ Michelle writes for the Mail On Sunday.
‘Getting off the plane was one of those magical moments we’ll never forget. As we entered the resort, it took our breath away.’
However, not everything went entirely to plan. Although a nervous swimmer, Michelle had braved trying her hand at snorkelling.
Unfortunately, she ended up having a pretty terrifying experience.
‘I was swimming along, trying to stick near the coral, and I was the first to spot one – a shark. It was about five or six feet long,’
‘I started flapping about, but no one could understand that I was screaming: “Shark!” Luckily it minded its own business and swam off. I was petrified, though.’
We don’t blame you, Mich!
