JLS star Jonathan “JB” Gill said his “traditional” wedding was the best day of his life after he tied the knot with dancer girlfriend Chloe on a remote Scottish island.
The couple, who met on The X Factor, married in the chapel of Mount Stuart House on the Isle of Bute where fashion designer Stella McCartney held her wedding in 2003.
JB told Hello! Magazine: “Chloe and I are both traditional in our views and our values. For me, marriage is the union of a man and a woman before God, so it meant a lot to us to have a proper church service with hymns.”
He also revealed the couple’s traditional values went as far as living apart before the wedding, saying: “Like I say, we’re traditional and to us that’s all part of this exciting new chapter in our lives.
“For me, it’s a big thing. When you get married, it’s not just you any more, it’s the two of you and I’m looking forward to reflecting that in our home and making it our house.
“Today has been the best day of our lives and for now, we’re happy to spend some time enjoying what we have and getting used to being husband and wife. It feels so good to finally be able to say that.”
JB said seeing Chloe coming down the aisle calmed any pre-wedding nerves he had, saying: “I was desperate to see Chloe. I’d missed her. Then, when I saw her coming down the aisle with her dad, I felt calmer. They weren’t in meltdown, they just looked really happy and that helped me to hold it together. I know it sounds cheesy, but it was perfect.”
The star, who has taken up farming after the group bowed out last year after a successful chart career, was joined at the ceremony by his former bandmates.
