'Strictly Come Dancing' star Aliona Vilani has tied the knot with her sales director boyfriend Vincent Kavanagh in a private ceremony in the US Virgin Isles
'Strictly Come Dancing' professional Aliona Vilani has married her "soulmate" Vincent Kavanagh.
The 29-year-old star has revealed that she married the sales director in a private ceremony in St. Thomas in the US Virgin Isles, with only her parents and his mother as guests, and she's admitted her new husband is her perfect match.
Speaking to Britain's HELLO! magazine about how she was introduced to Vincent by actress Anita Dobson, who competed on 'Strictly Come Dancing' in 2011, she explained: "She [Anita] said, 'I really want you to meet this guy. Give him a chance, he's so lovely. So I did and here we are.
"Vincent is a lot of fun and adores me. He is the sweetest man I have ever met. He is my soulmate. You never know when you're going to meet someone who is so right for you. My parents keep saying they couldn't have imagined I would meet someone who is so similar to me."
The Kazakhstan-born dancer, who wore glamorous dresses every week while on Strictly, admits she found it hard to find the perfect gown for her wedding day.
She said: "It was important to choose a dress that would be right for a whole day at the beach. I didn't want a big fluffy skirt, I wanted something slinky. So many of the dresses I looked at reminded me of ones I've already danced in."
Aliona has confessed that following her "perfect" and "very special" wedding ceremony, she's now planning to try for a child with Vincent.
She admitted: "I look forward to having a family. To me, that is the most important thing."
