Billie Faiers celebrates a year of marriage with husband Greg in the Maldives
Billie Faiers and Greg Shepherd got married at the Maldives last year and had a rather extravagant ceremony on the idyllic island.
Billie, 30, and her husband, Greg, 34, went back to the holiday destination last Friday to celebrate their first wedding anniversary.
Greg surprised his wife with the weekend getaway trip, and she revealed this fact in a recent Instagram post.
It took the couple about 11 hours via plane to get the Maldives for their weekend trip.
Upon arriving at their heavenly destination, Billie posted a sun-kissed shot from their trip and wrote: "Paradise for the weekend! I can't believe we are actually here. Thank you @gregory-shep for surprising me to celebrate our first wedding anniversary … wow what a year it has been!
"… It's a long way to come for a few days .. but I'm not complaining and I couldn't be happier [sic]."
Billie also posted a selfie of her and her husband from the plane with the caption: "Best anniversary surprise everrr @gregory_shep how you pulled this one off I don't know… a long weekend in paradise…"
In the picture, she is giving her husband a peck on the cheek while enjoying a glass of champagne on board the flight.
Billie and Greg got married on the idyllic island of Kuramathi last March with her sister Sam Faiers and her two children Nelly, four, and Arthur, two, all present in the wedding party.
In an interview with OK! magazine Billie opened up about the ceremony saying that it was like a "fairy tale".
Billie stated: "Other than the days that Nelly and Arthur were born, it was the best day of my life. It was like a fairy tale – all the stress and tears were worth it."
She added: "It's so lovely for me to finally be a Shepherd and share a surname with my children. Marriage ties our little family together completely."
Meanwhile, Greg told the magazine that he could believe how beautiful his wife looked in her wedding dress.
He said: "She looked incredible in her dress."
The Maldives is a very special location for the couple as they also got engaged their back in 2014 and have been on many holidays on the island with their children.
