EMMA Bunton spoke about her secret wedding to husband Jade Jones for the first time last night, calling it a "perfect day".
The Spice Girl, 45, wed Damage singer Jade, 42, at Soho Farmhouse last Tuesday and thanked fans for their well wishes on her Heart radio show.
She said: "Firstly, I would like to say a massive, massive thank you for all of your lovely messages and congratulations because yes! I did it! I finally walked down the aisle and married Mr Jade Jones.
"It’s been a long time coming…23 years actually, but we had the most perfect day, we didn’t take our eyes off each other, it was very romantic."
Emma recently gave fans a look at her bridal minidress and garter in a wedding-day photo shared to Instagram.
The pop star said she was "still on cloud nine" as she posted the stunning snap to her 1.2million followers.
She walked down the aisle in a gorgeous white Miu Miu dress that featured sheer sleeves and a huge train.
The celeb clutched a bright bouquet bursting with white gardenias and yellow roses that matched a cute garland in her hair.
The couple started dating in 1998 and got engaged in 2006.
They applied for a marriage licence in March 2019 but did not go ahead with a ceremony.
Later that year, Emma said: “It is the world’s longest engagement but if Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell can do it… they’ve never married. One day, I know we would love a wedding and we want the kids to be there.”
The only guests at their wedding were their mothers, their two children — Beau, 13, and Tate, ten — and two close friends as witnesses.
Spice Girls Victoria Beckham, 47, who lives less than mile away from the venue, Mel B, 46, Geri Horner, 48, and Melanie C, 47, later sent congratulatory messages.
A source close to the couple said: "Emma and Jade wanted to celebrate with only a handful of people. They kept the whole ceremony secret from everyone but wanted their kids there. Beau was his dad’s Best Man — it was so sweet.
"If they’d had a bigger ceremony, the girls would have been invited but they wanted it to be really intimate."
