Great British Bake Off star Kim-Joy Hewlett tied the knot with her partner Nabil Homsi, in a day packed with ‘adventure.’
The 2018 contestant, who was best known for her adorable and colourful bakes, posted several snaps marking the joyous occasion.
Kim-Joy, 31, announced the happy news on Instagram where she uploaded a variety of photos with Nabil and an Elvis impersonator, of course!
‘Sooo… we got MARRIED!!!!’ she penned.
‘@nabiltravels is my favourite person, my best friend and the most genuine, kind and funny person. I can’t believe we’re finally married, after first meeting about 9 years ago now!
‘We knew we wanted to do something fun and no pressure (especially cause we’ve put so much time, money and planning into the house renovation already!) – and as we were already headed to Vegas, we decided to just get married there!’

She continued: ‘It was just me and Nabil, and our friends Simon and Charlotte who were on holiday with us. Oh… and Elvis 😆😆 Which is funny cause we had to pick two elvis songs and I didn’t know any. I just thought WHY NOT have Elvis there, cause we’re in Vegas!
According to the TV personality bought her orange dress the day before and the groom got his ring before the nuptials, and hopes their ‘pure luck bodes well for the future.’
Kim-Joy concluded her message by reminding fans ‘that a wedding doesn’t have to be any particular way to be meaningful!
She said: ‘I love seeing beautifully planned weddings full of details – but we knew that wouldn’t work for us personally. Do whatever works for you!’
