Olly Murs has given a whole new meaning to the destination wedding concept by renting an island complete with a massive ferris wheel, retro cars and a stage.

The X Factor runner-up and his partner Amelia Tank announced their engagement last summer during a beach getaway.

The singer and TV presenter shared the news on Instagram in June last year with a picture of the pair hugging on a cliff edge.

The couple have been item for around four years, after first meeting on Instagram in 2019 before going public with their romance the following year.

According to MailOnline, Olly, 39, and bodybuilder Amelia, 30, exchanged vows on Saturday (15 July) in what has been described as a two-day celebration which looks like a wonderful, festival-themed extravaganza.

The 'Please Don't Let Me Go' hit-maker has gone all out by organising for the wedding to take place on Osea Island in his home county of Essex.

The 380-acre island, which is owned by music producer Nigel Frieda, is located in the estuary of the River Blackwater. People can only access the island for a few hours a day due to the estuary that surrounds it.

In pictures obtained by the MailOnline, Olly and Amelia’s wedding definitely looks like the ultimate place to be this weekend as they show a massive outdoor stage for artists to perform for guests and the happy couple. A large marquee has also been erected with glass chandeliers.

The photos, which were snapped before the event, also show a vintage car being transported to the wedding location on a trailer.

And guests - who aren’t afraid of heights - could take a ride on the ferris wheel overlooking the island.

Before the big day this weekend, Olly admitted he didn’t think he’d become a ‘groomzilla’, explaining how much attention he’s paid to the small details.

"I'm a groomzilla. I never expected it, I thought I'd be the opposite. I'm like, 'No, no, no. Get rid of that, change that, move that," he told The Mirror.

"I didn't know I cared so much about what the flowers look like but, honest to God, if I'm reincarnated, I'm coming back as a florist."

He continued: "There's a lady helping us plan the wedding and I said to her, 'I don't want ugly chairs, you know those horrible school chairs that are horrendous’.”

Congratulations Olly and Amelia!
