Hollyoaks' Gemma Merna: I couldn't stop crying when I married Ian Minton
The actress, 27, who plays Carmel Valentine in the Channel 4 soap, says her big day was so emotional that the whole congregation were in floods of tears.
'I thought we might giggle through our vows. I didn't expect tears,' Gemma says.
'When I walked in and saw Ian standing there, I was just overcome.'
Gemma got engaged to Ian in the Maldives in 2009, a year after they first met.
'I think we put ourselves to the test by waiting four years to get married,' she says.
'When something is right, you just know.'
