Camilla Thurlow breastfed in wedding dress as baby Nell had teething trouble

Love Island star Camilla Thurlow got honest with her fans about having her new baby daughter with her on her wedding day as they both grappled with ‘separation anxiety’.

She shared that 10-month-old Nell, who she shares with husband Jamie Jewitt, had begun teething which led to her being unsettled on the big day.

Posting pictures from the ceremony on Instagram, Camilla – wearing her wedding dress – breastfed her daughter with her new groom by her side during a quiet moment .

Camilla, 30, shared on Instagram: ‘I have had a lot of messages asking what it was like having a 10 month baby and organising a wedding.

‘The first thing I will say is having Nell at our wedding, surrounded by our family and friends was heavenly and I wouldn’t change a thing ☺️🥰

‘But I should also be honest, that it did end up being trickier than I had anticipated a few months ago partly because just before the wedding we hit a pretty difficult teething and separation anxiety period.

‘On the day itself, even though I managed to keep her solid meals on schedule and also had plenty of snacks available, she wanted a lot of milk feeds from me throughout the day, in the evening she did want me to settle her and then she spent a lot of the night awake.’

The reality TV star, who met her now-husband on the ITV2 dating show, said it ‘a bit of a struggle’ as she also had to deal with other wedding-related issues such as having to organise a wedding dress ‘last minute’.

She confessed that ‘ every problem seems so much worse when you haven’t had much sleep’ but thanked her ‘support system’ for being there for her.

Camilla continued: ‘I am very, very lucky, I have an amazing support system who all did their bit to help me out both in the lead up and on the day itself.

‘I had also made a lot of decisions to try and make life easier for us, like choosing a nearby location and lovely, reliable suppliers who took so much of the weight off my shoulders. MOST importantly, it kept the important aspects of the day in sharp focus for me.

‘As someone who can really sweat the small stuff, not having time to do that actually kept my eyes away from the details and instead on the bigger picture of the whole day and celebrating love, joy and happiness with our family and friends and it really did end up being the absolutely perfect day for us.

The new mum tagged Jamie, 30, at the end of her post, who wrote in the comments: ‘World’s best mummy’.

Camilla and Jamie met on Love Island in 2017 finishing as runners up to winners Amber Davies and Kem Cetinay.
