LOVE Island’s Zara Holland has married her fiancé Elliott Love in Greece – seven years after her heartbreak on the ITV2 dating show.

The beauty queen failed to find love in the telly villa and was stripped of her Miss GB title during her stint.

But the 27-year-old Hull based star met the man of her dreams on holiday just four weeks after leaving Love Island.

And she has admitted marrying Elliott, 33, was: “The most happy and special day of my life.”

Zara – who got engaged last year – posted a beautiful snap of the moment they wed under a flower arch next to breathtaking views of the ocean, and she captioned it with the date they became man and wife.

She penned: “28.06.23, Mr & Mrs Love.”

Family and friends shared sweet messages beneath her post, and her TV star mum Cheryl Hakeney wrote: “I’m the proudest Mummy In the world congratulations, to my daughter & son in law the best day ever love you both so much.”

The couple said “I do” in front of 140 guests on the Athens Riviera, with Zara stunning in a white off the shoulder dress embroidered with pearls and a flowers.

The beaming bride told MailOnline: “It was such a special moment having my dad walk me down the aisle.

“I wanted to keep it as traditional as possible, even the night before we spent separately.

“As everyone arrived, we had a harp and violin duo playing, which was epic. I walked down the aisle to them playing away.

“We got married at half 6 in the evening. I was a little bit late… It sounds so stupid, but I couldn’t find any scissors to cut the straps out of my dress!”

Elliott popped the question in January during a sun-soaked holiday to Dubai and they held a glitzy engagement bash last month with all their family and friends.

Speaking about her romance previously, Zara said: “We’re very happy together and have such a great time. He is absolutely amazing and he’s definitely the one.

“When I did just come out the villa and I was on nights out or at public appearances guys would be like ‘Can I buy Zara from Love Island a drink?’

“But he just likes me for me which was so refreshing.”

The couple caused controversy in 2021 when they were spared jail for flouting Covid laws on holiday in Barbados when they tried to flee the country after Elliott tested positive for the virus.

They were intercepted at the airport trying to board a plane back to Blighty.

It comes after bikini-loving Zara was stripped of her Miss Great Britain title during the 2016 version of the show when she and former contestant Alex Bowen, 31, who is now married to fellow castmate Olivia Buckland, had sex on the show in the Hideaway.
