Former Spice Girl and Heart Radio presenter Emma Bunton has wed her partner of 20 years Jade Jones.

After getting engaged over a decade ago, the pair finally tied the knot in a small, secret ceremony this week, with the 45-year-old star posting a picture of the newlywed couple smiling together, heads touching under a floral arch, on her Instagram page.

Simply captioning the post: 'Mr and Mrs Jones!' followed by several love heart emojis, the singer and her former Damage member beau Jade looked the picture of marital bliss in the sweet snap, with several celebrity friends rushing to congratulate the pair on their nuptials.

Fellow Spice Girl Victoria Beckham was quick to comment on the post, writing: 'Congratulations. Love u both so much!! X.'

Whilst Holly Willoughby and Davina McCall added: 'Awww my beautiful Baby! Stand up Mrs Jones… love you both…' and 'Awwww that’s such great news!!!!' respectively.

Considering their unusually long engagement, it's no surprise that when it finally came down to the big day, Emma eschewed tradition, and opted for a chic, short Miu Miu silk mini dress and long sheer cape, instead of the usual long bridal style.

Accessorising her hair with a floral headband that matched her bouquet and long, loose blonde waves, while Jade, 42, opted for a fitted black t-shirt, cream chinos, a Gucci blazer and stylish brown fedora for the occasion.

Originally getting together back in 1998, the pair share two sons Beau, 13 and Tate, 10, and have been engaged to wed since 2006 — and although Emma has previously stated they've been in no rush to marry, she's warmed up to the idea in recent years. Telling Zoe Ball on BBC Radio2 back in 2018 that, despite their long engagement, they would 'love to actually' get married, but want to keep the nuptials as private as possible.

'We try to, but we want it to be private, every time we try it’s out there. We want to do it privately on our own.' she explained.
