Vick Hope and Calvin Harris have reportedly managed to pull off the ultimate celebrity feat - a private wedding with minimal attention on their big day.

It follows the theme of the happy couple's whole relationship, which they managed to keep secret in the beginning and have kept mostly out of the public eye.

As radio presenter Hope and DJ Harris begin their life together as Mr and Mrs, we look back at their relationship timeline.

Long before Hope was a famous name in broadcasting and right at the beginning of Harris' high-profile career, things didn't quite work out between the pair.

Harris asked Hope on a date in 2007, but she swiftly turned him down - as she laughed about with You magazine ahead of their wedding.

She said: "It's something that we laughed about on our first proper date. We still laugh about it now."

Much later, in 2018 Roman Kemp teased Hope about her decision on their radio show after remarking that Harris had had "one of the best glow ups he'd ever seen".

Hope admitted: "I went off with either Scouting for Girls or The Wombats. I don't know which. I thought they were going to be bigger, but no, it turns out Calvin Harris was going to turn into an Adonis."

Going public and getting engaged

Happily, the couple got a second chance at romance not long who knows, maybe Harris heard Hope talking about her regrets.

By 2022, rumours were swirling that the celebrity pair had been dating for a few months, with them eventually going public in a wholesome appearance at Chelsea Flower Show in May 2022.

Laughing and joking together, they looked relaxed in each other's company, but eagle-eyed fans noticed another detail as Hope was wearing a sparkling ring on her engagement finger.

She confirmed the rumours in an interview with Hello! magazine in October, saying: "You know what, I was very overwhelmed by the interest in it, but I'm keeping my private life private. I've never really experienced 'this' before about my private life, but it's just for us."

Although the couple have managed to keep many details of their romance to themselves, there has been plenty of filling in the gaps, especially about their wedding.

Some reports had confidently predicted that the wedding would take place in Ibiza which seemed a fitting location for the DJ and radio star.

However, as it turned out the happy couple managed to keep the real location top secret...

The big day

Geordie Hope headed back home to the North East to celebrate her wedding, which took place on Saturday, 9 September, 2023 at Hulne Priory in Alnwick, Northumberland.

Celebrity guests included AJ Odudu, Scott Mills, Vernon Kay and Jordan North, with Nile Rodgers and Chic performing at their wedding reception.

But despite the famous guest count, Hope and Harris still managed to keep their big day off social media, just like the rest of their relationship.

As Hope had previously explained to You magazine: "There's a difference between secrecy and privacy. We don't really put anything on social media because the time we have together is 'real life', and it's our own.

"For the first time in a long time, I'm finishing work and going home to a life that is just mine. I'm learning to find balance and peace."
