Jackie also revealed 180 guests had been invited for the wedding, which was spread across three days: 'We took the whole hotel over and it was quite a party.'

The Mayor of Marmaris, Mehmet Oktay, has told reporters he officiated the ceremony as part of celebrations that will last three days.

The reception is said to have kicked off mid-afternoon on Friday with guests enjoying a booze free bar and food prepared by expert chefs.

The party then ended with a pool party at the luxurious hotel.

Kate and Rio have married two years after they started dating – with the pair getting engaged in November 2018.

Rio's three children Lorenz, 13, Tate, and Tia, eight, were all at Friday's ceremony, along with the couple's other close family members.

Bride Kate is said to have invited just one of her former TOWIE castmates, pregnant Lydia Bright.

Rio proposed to Kate in Abu Dhabi in November last year, asking his three children to help surprise Kate on top of a helipad at a five star hotel.

He started dating Kate in late 2016 after the death of his wife Rebecca, while Kate split from former TOWIE star Dan Edgar that year.
