Stacey Solomon says her wedding to Joe Swash is on hold as they want permission to marry in Pickle Cottage's garden

STACEY Solomon has revealed her wedding to Joe Swash is currently on hold because they are waiting to find out if they can tie the knot in the garden of their new home. 

The 31-year-old was due to marry former EastEnders actor Joe in July of this year but the couple have had a change of heart about where they want to say ‘I do’.

Appearing on Lorriane today, she was quizzed about the planning by stand in Cat Deeley, and she admitted she wasn’t entirely sure what was happening now.

She said: “Oh god. So we had a venue and then obviously we didn’t know we were going to move here but then we saw the house and just thought ‘oh my god, let's go for it’ and now that we are here, we would actually really like to get married in the garden.

 “So we are trying to see if we can do that but we don’t know if we will be able to get a license. So the wedding planning is a bit on hold at the moment, because we don’t know exactly where or what we are going to do.”


She added: "It’s all just come at once, so many of these things have been in the planning for years… I feel so lucky, privileged and grateful and I just think you have to take any opportunity when it comes.”

Stacey and Joe moved into the newly named Pickle Cottage earlier this year with their son Rex and Stacey’s boys Leighton and Zachary. 

The stunning £1.2 million property is set within 2.5 acres of land, so would offer plenty of space for their wedding.

Joe got down on one knee on Christmas Eve during a woodland walk with the family.


Since the couple got engaged, the Loose Women star has been hard at work planning her perfect day, even crafting her own decorations for the occasion.

And in true Stacey Solomon style, the bits and bobs do come cheap, and are pretty easy to make using just a few supplies.

She whipped up her own wedding favours, 65p coasters, table decorations, a globe guestbook and some stunning table numbers using her beloved fejkas.

Meanwhile, fans will be able to follow some of Stacey's life hacks as her new BBC decluttering show, Sort Your Life Out, starts this evening.

She told Cat: “I’m so excited it’s on tonight. It’s not just me, there’s a whole team of people who are incredible with what they do and we all come together to help a family.

"They didn’t know where to put [their stuff], how to get rid of it, what to keep and what not to keep – we emptied the whole house, spread it all across the floor and then we could make informed decisions as to where it could go.”
