Jeff Brazier and Kate Dwyer have shared the first pictures from their intimate wedding in Portugal, saying they have “won at becoming a family”.
The couple tied the knot in the Algarve last week, alongside Brazier’s teenage sons Bobby, 15, and Freddy, 14, whom he had with late reality star Jade Goody.
Speaking to Hello! Magazine about the big day, Brazier said it wasn’t “just any wedding” as he credited his new wife with helping to complete his family.
“She hasn’t just completed one person, she’s completed a family and given three boys a real sense of belonging,” he told the publication.
He added: “I’m so happy to marry Kate, who has brought so much stability to my life. This isn’t just any wedding, this is a really special one.
“It doesn’t just represent Kate and I putting rings on each other’s fingers. It represents the fact that we won at something really tricky. We won at becoming a family.”
Dwyer, who is a PR executive, wore an ivory gown by Madeline Gardner for Belissima for the ceremony, while Brazier looked dapper in a white jacket and black trousers.
His son Freddy told the magazine: “[Dad] has found that girl who he’s going to live with for the rest of his life. One of the biggest things for Fred and I is that Kate makes our dad happy.”
Brazier proposed to his other half in Ibiza last year, after first seeking permission from his children before popping the question.
The couple started dating five years ago, four years after the death of Goody following a battle with cervical cancer.
