Sam Faiers dreams of beach wedding
Sam Faiers has revealed she would prefer a low-key beach wedding for her and boyfriend Joey Essex.
The former Only Way Is Essex star said she wants an intimate ceremony, as compared to the lavish do her sister Billie is planning.
"Billie's doing a beautiful big white wedding in the UK, but me and Joey talk about it and we'd love to get married on a beach," she told OK! magazine.
"I'd love to go somewhere low-key, get 30 people out there and wear a pretty-but-simple fitted dress with bare feet," she added.
Sam, who was previously engaged to Joey, said they have discussed their future since rekindling their romance in February.
"We talk about our future a lot - moving in together, babies and stuff," she continued. "There's no rush, we're only recently back together and things are so good so I wouldn't want to ruin it, but we do want to spend the rest of our lives together. The rest is down to him."
The 23-year-old model, who said she would change her surname to Mrs Essex, prefers the couple's relationship being off-screen, after they started dating on the ITV2 hit show.
"When you have a relationship on TOWIE, you hear people talk about your relationship - we watch the show together and it gets your back up instantly. We were both immature on that show and in the end, we didn't know what we'd be arguing about," she said.
"The show was stressing Joey out by the end. As much as we'd loved each other, we never wanted to hate each other. He left at a good time."
She added: "Since February, when we got back together, we haven't had one big argument. We have more respect for each other now. He's more mature since leaving the show."
