    Olly Murs is now a married man, having tied the knot on Saturday with bodybuilder girlfriend, Amelia Tank.

    The pair chose the 380-acre island in Essex, Osea Island, as their wedding destination.

    Complete with fairground rides, a stage, and a Murs fest arch, the Dance With Me Tonight singer chose to celebrate his big day with a festival.

    Olly's close friend and TOWIE star, Mark Wright, shared some snaps of the wedding on his Instagram.

    Mark's 1.8 million followers were treated to a cheeky selfie of himself and the groom, displaying festival garb and a middle finger each on his story.

    TV personality Mark captioned the snap, "Celebrating this one @ollymurs and @tankintraining wedding day. Love you both x".

    The 36-year-old also shared a video of the festival-wedding fusion to his story, capturing an airplane streaking across the sky with a banner reading: "OLLY AND AMELIA JUST MARRIED".

    The pair's marriage comes after their engagement last year, marking four years of dating.

    Olly announced engagement with a sweet yet simple post to Instagram, sharing a snap of the pair embracing in a scenic location.

    The post was captioned with the newlyweds' engagement date, Amelia's name, and a ring emoji.

    Amelia shared the post to her story, writing “Here's to forever with you”.

    The 380-acre island and venue is owned by music producer Nigel Frieda.

    Osea Island has an intriguing history of being rented to high-profile names in music, which in recent years includes none other than Rihanna.

    The island has a fully equipped recording studio and extensive accommodation, making it a popular pick for stars to record albums.

    It reportedly costs £20,000 per day to rent.

    A source close to Olly explained the couple's decision to get hitched at the Essex location, telling The Express: "Olly is proud of his Essex roots, so the chance to marry at home, while also offering an exclusive and isolated location was an ideal blend.

    "The island's relaxed, vacation-like atmosphere will make guests feel they're overseas.

    "Olly is excitedly looking forward to sharing his big day with loved ones."
