The church was full to the brim with 118 extras in attendance for the occasion, adding to the dynamic for Charlotte actress Amarteifio who said all the eyes on her when she walked out in her breathtaking white and gold embroidered wedding gown only added to the nervousness a real bride would feel. Her presence clearly carried with the cast on-screen too as Thomas admitted she ‘almost cried’ watching her on-screen companion walk down the aisle and Mylchreest declaring the moment ‘so beautiful.’

As hearts were racing across the world in anticipation for the moment George and Charlotte laid eyes on one another, the sentiment was also felt by the stars. Amarteifio admitted: ‘It feels so real.
