Anticipation is building for Stacey Solomon’s upcoming marriage to Joe Swash.

Stacey has been sharing sneak previews of the big day with her 5.1m Instagram followers. The 32-year-old has built up a huge following on social media as she thrills fans with regular updates from her happy family life at Pickle Cottage.
Stacey shares her beautiful home with children Leighton, Zachary, Rex and Rose. Stacey and Joe are undergoing a huge renovation project and will tie the knot in the garden of her £1.2m home – as Mirror Online reports.
We have rounded up everything we currently know about Stacey and Joe’s big day.
Stacey Solomon and Joe Swash’s wedding date
Joe accidentally let slip the date they will be getting married during a special episode of Loose Women last year when he revealed it would be taking place on the last “Sunday in July”. The wedding got postponed, but Stacey and Joe revealed on the Loose Women Christmas special they aim to get married in the same month this year.
She told Ruth Langsford in 2021: “Get your hat out, Ruth. Yes, we would love… if all goes well.. because covid’s still massive and you never know what’s around the corner, but we would love to get married in July next year, we really would. It will be so nice to have the boys and Rose there.”
Stacey Solomon and Joe Swash’s wedding venue
Stacey and Joe decided to change their wedding venue after moving into their £1.2million home. After managing to get a licence, the couple will get married in the garden of Pickle Cottage. She told Cat Deeley on Lorraine last year: “We had the venue and we didn’t know we were going to move here. We saw the house and thought, ‘Let’s go for it’. Now we’re here, we’d actually like to get married in the garden. We’re trying to see if we can do that.
“We don’t know if we’ll be able to get a licence and stuff. The wedding planning is a bit on halt at the moment. It’s all just come at once, so many of these things have been in the planning for years… I feel so lucky, privileged and grateful and I just think you have to take any opportunity when it comes.”
Stacey Solomon’s wedding dress
Last month Stacey picked her wedding dress from Belfast bridalwear shop Verona Bridalni after trying on numerous designs at Pickle Cottage. The bride-to-be took to Instagram to upload a video of six incredible gowns hanging in her spare room as she tried them on, with her sister Jemma there to give her honest opinion. Alongside snaps of her beaming in the mirror with her sister Jemma, the former X Factor star gushed she “never wanted to forget this feeling” after an emotional day.
She said: “Today I Choose My Wedding Dress And I never want to forget this feeling… I’ve been putting it off I think because the more I got excited about it the more silly I felt for some reason… I started feeling really conscious about not being, well I don’t know.”
“I decided to try my dresses on, at home with just me not making a “thing” of it. But it turns out it felt like the hugest “thing” ever,” she wrote with a sobbing emoji.
“My sister dropped the kids back from school and popped up and we both ended up emotional messes. I loved every single second of today, trying them on, imagining seeing Joe for the first time, feeling the veil on my shoulders & seeing the glitter sparkle as I moved around.”
Stacey and Joe’s children will play a special part in the upcoming nuptials. The couple are proud parents to Rose and Rex. Stacey has sons Zachary, 14, and Leighton, 10, from previous relationships, while Joe has son Harry.
Revealing her plans, Stacey said: “We’ve got four boys and they will all just be our page boys. We didn’t want to make one the best man or give one a special role. But I would like them all to walk me down the aisle with my dad.
And even the couple’s two dogs Peanut and Teddy will have roles. She added: “They’re getting suits made and they’ll have bow ties. I made a wedding planning book and a whole double page is dedicated to the dogs.
Walking down the aisle
Stacey asked her followers recently if she should walk down the whole pergola to meet fiancé Joe. Taking to Instagram from her garden, the presenter spoke her outdoor wedding plans and how the space will be transformed.
She said: “This morning I had to meet with the caterers, florists & everyone in between because I almost forgot we are getting married in three months’ time. We are on the last part now, the aisle. And my sister just put a load of candles in my kitchen jars at the bottom where we are going to stand and I’m crying”.
Stacey said her “whole stomach is churning” as she looked down the pergola, contemplating the long walk she will do down the aisle. She asked fans “Should we just get married half way down the isle? [sic] Because it’s such a long walk.
“Is it too long? I’m scared to walk that far in front of everyone. I think I’ll just end up falling over or laughing at how long it’s taking me to get down the isle [sic]. But I love the end of the arches. Help.”
