Sharing their big day with OK! magazine, Kym revealed how she purposely wore a cherub necklace with her Carolina Herrera bridal gown, as it represents her baby boy who died at birth. 

Kym lost her son, Archie, with ex-husband Jamie Lomas in 2009 after giving birth at only 23 weeks.  

The actress is mum to three children, David, 26, Emilie, 24, and Polly, 10, and explained how they bought her a cherub necklace to symbolise Archie as a gift on Mother's Day. 

Wanting to wear it on her wedding day to 'represent' Archie, Kym also had yellow roses dotted around the venue to 'symbolise' her son as a yellow rose is his flower.

Only commissioned officers can wed at Sandhurst, with Kym and Scott revealing it was so 'special' to say I Do at the stunning venue, before hosting their wedding reception in another room on site and a marquee, where the couple's 152 guests dined on prawn cocktail, chicken supreme and sticky toffee pudding. 

On the day, Kym was flanked by a huge bridal party, including her kids, grandchildren Teddy and Polly, and Scott's daughter Renee, as well as her bridesmaids, headed up by her Corrie co-star Alison King, and Anthony Cotton, who acted as Master of Ceremonies. 

Corrie stars Jane Danson, Tristan Gemmill, Chris Gascoyne, Sally-Anne Matthews and Ryan Prescott were all in attendance, as were other celebrity guests including Carol Vorderman, Hear'Say star Danny Foster, TV presenter Gethin Jones and Strictly Come Dancing star Janette Manrara.
