Lacey Turner weds childhood sweetheart Matt Kay in Ibiza

Barbara Windsor, Scott Maslen and Aaron Sidwell were among Lacey Turner's EastEnders co-stars in attendance as she married Matt Kay in Ibiza.

EastEnders star Lacey Turner "felt so much love" when she married longtime love Matt Kay last week (ends10Sep17).

The 29-year-old actress looked stunning in a gown with applique floral detailing as she tied the knot with her barbershop owner beau in Ibiza, surrounded by friends and co-stars including Dame Barbara Windsor, James Bye, Jake Wood, Laurie Brett, Scott Maslen and Aaron Sidwell.

Speaking of the special day, which was documented by OK! magazine, Lacey gushed: "The whole day was amazing. And we felt so much love. It’s incredible; it’s something you’ve never felt before."

Prior to walking down the aisle in front of 120 guests, Lacey found herself overcome by nerves, but her excitement at getting married overruled any other emotions she felt.

"I had a few tiny moments when I panicked, but on the day I couldn’t wait to get down the aisle and marry Matt," she smiled. "I was like, hurry up, I want to get married! I wasn’t nervous walking down the aisle, which was strange as I can’t walk down a red carpet without wanting the ground to swallow me up."

The couple chose get hitched in northern Ibiza, with Lacey keen for a wedding abroad so she could go barefoot.

Now they are husband and wife, Lacey and Matt are already talking about starting a family together, with the brunette stating: "I want four children".

When Matt added that he wants three, Lacey replied: "When you have four you need to start thinking about a minivan to put them all in, whereas with three you just need a car. I don’t care, though; I’ll have a minivan!"

Lacey and Matt started dating at the age of 18, after having been friends for years.
