Tom and Catherine tied the knot in a stunning ceremony at Colshaw Hall in Cheshire back in May.
Speaking to the Hello! magazine about the nuptials shortly after, Catherine said: 'It was my dream come true.
'I had been looking forward to this moment for so long. Tom and I are very traditional and it was important for us to show our deep commitment to each other.

'It was picture perfect. There were scented candles and beautiful flowers - and most importantly of all, there was Tom.'
Catherine and the fitness fanatic started dating in March 2014, with the actress falling pregnant with their son Alfie, now 18 months, a few months later.
They announced Catherine's pregnancy shortly after their engagement in August 2014.
While the loved-up couple enjoyed fairytale nuptials and lead a happy family life with their adorable little boy, the blonde admitted recently that the same cannot be said for her ITV counterpart Eva Price.

Catherine revealed earlier this month that her character will show off her fesity side this Christmas upon discovery that her boyfriend Aidan, played by Shayne Ward, has been unfaithful.
Speaking on Gaby Roslin's BBC Radio London show earlier this week, Catherine teased the upcoming plot: 'For Eva, over Christmas, we see her living the dream,' she explained, referring to the character's total obliviousness that her on-screen boyfriend Aidan has been cheating on her with Maria Connor (Samia Ghadie).
'It's heartbreaking,' she went on. 'Everytime I get a script I feel so sorry for her. She thinks she's found her prince charming.
'She's Little Miss Christmas, she makes Christmas cards with their faces on. But when she finds out, I hear it's going to be quite explosive.'
Making a statement: Lisa Appleton also attended the event in a much racier ensemble which flashed ample amounts of her plentiful cleavage
