Two years after meeting on BBC’s The Apprentice, Harpreet Kaur and Akshay Thakrar have tied the knot!

The TV stars celebrated their love for one another in a truly lavish affair, joined by 60 loved ones for the special occasion.

Harpreet and Akshay – who went public with their romance shortly after their series of Lord Alan Sugar’s show finished – opted for an outdoor ceremony.

Recalling their wedding, Akshay, 31, said: ‘The only way I can describe our wedding is that it felt like a movie, it was amazing.

Harpreet, 32, added to OK! Magazine: ‘I just wish we could do it all again, it went even better than we planned!’

The stunning bride walked down the aisle to an instrumental version of Bruno Mars’s hit Just The Way You Are as their three-day wedding began with a civil ceremony at Wentbridge House Hotel in Yorkshire on May 29.

Harpreet looked gorgeous in a flowing gown with floral detailing and a veil from Enzoani.

‘It was just beautiful, I’ve always dreamt of wearing a white wedding dress because, being Indian, we don’t always make a fuss of that day or the legal bit,’ said the sweet treats shop owner.

Akshay said the wedding was also his ‘first-ever English wedding’, which he found ‘fascinating’, having only ever seen them depicted in films before.

The Apprentice lovebirds announced their engagement in May last year, sharing snaps of a romantic rooftop proposal.

At the time, Harpreet, who won Lord Sugar’s £250,000 investment thanks to her dessert parlour business back in 2022, was left stunned as Akshay got down on one knee in front of a rose petal display and pyrotechnics.

His Instagram caption announcing the news read: ‘I would find you in any lifetime ❤️

‘Our journey began in the most unexpected way. Now it’s time to begin our forever chapter.

‘She said yes ???? Thank you to everyone who helped create this moment.’

Despite meeting during filming for The Apprentice, Harpreet and Akshay didn’t start dating until afterwards.

They later confessed that an ‘unexpected’ relationship blossomed between the pair, as they confirmed in the summer of last 2022 that they were an item.
