Amanda Byram has gushed over her 'best friend and soulmate', husband Julian Okines, as the couple celebrated their two year wedding anniversary.

The happy couple tied the knot in an intimate ceremony at London's Oriental Mandarin Hotel in 2016, with the TV host looking every inch the beautiful bride in a stunning long sleeved lace gown.

"Two years ago he swept me off my feet when we said “I Do”!" the Dublin-born star wrote on Instagram, "Time really flies when you’re having fun with your best friend and soul mate. Happy anniversary my [heart emoji]"

Amanda shared three photos from her big day, where the couple were joined by radio presenter Fearne Cotton, TV presenter Laura Whitmore,and model Yvonne Connolly.

In a beautiful black and white portrait by photographer Alexandria Hall, the 'fitness obsessed' qualified personal trainer is seen in a beautiful white lace bodysuit popping on her wedding shoes, which she captioned with "Throwback to wedding prep".

In another, the bride appears stepping out of her wedding car into the sun, with an iconic red London city bus in the background which she described as 'one of my fave pics'.

Amanda met TV producer Julian in 2014, with their relationship blossoming after a trip to Italy, which she had intended to go with her mother.

"I said to my mum, ‘I met this cute guy and we really hit it off. Will I ask him to come to Italy with me? Is he going to think I’m too full on?’

“And he said it was one of the things made him fall for me: there was no bullshit, he said, ‘you weren’t wrapped in your own head’.” Her mother missed out on the Italy trip for Julian, but she gained a son-in-law in the process."

The TV presenter and activewear designer (Amanda launched her label Body by Byram last year) has previously opened up about calling off her engagement to ex boyfriend, rugby player Craig McMullen, telling Independent Style "“I got so caught up in the flowers and dress, the wedding was in the South of France and people were flying in from America, Australia, I had friends from LA coming over."

"Something struck me a month and a half before the wedding and it’s very hard to put into words. I just thought I wasn’t sure."

She called cancelling the wedding 'the most difficult thing I've ever done in my life.'
