Socialite Holly Branson has opened up about her joy after getting married at her father's Necker Island retreat following an August (11) blaze which left the property in ruins.
Branson wed ship broker Freddie Andrews on the British Virgin Islands paradise last month (Dec11), amid rebuilding work on her father's holiday home.
And she tells Hello! magazine the chaos at the site helped make it a very special day.
She says, "Because it is such a dramatic environment, you don't get a sad feeling on the ruins, it's more of an uplifting, wow, a feeling of celebration and a time to reflect.
"Before, we were wondering where to fit that many people to have a proper service, but it was the most obvious big flat open space, it was perfect.
"It's definitely our special place and it looked absolutely beautiful, even though it was still very rustic - there are still piles of rubble - it was dramatic. And it's stunning because you're at the top of a hill, so there are incredible panoramic views."
And the new Mrs. Andrews has revealed her father wanted her to be a pregnant bride: "He was really keen for me to be pregnant walking down the aisle. He didn't think we should worry about being married first.
"My parents weren't married before they had Sam and I, but both had been married before and it didn't work, so I think for us, it's nice to do everything in the right order."
