She was forced to postpone her dream wedding in Mallorca in June due to the coronavirus pandemic.
But Jess Wright and her fiancé William Lee-Kemp, 38, decided not to delay the flight as they flew abroad for a sun-filled vacation.
On Instagram on Monday, the former TOWIE star, 35, shared a wedding-themed post, joking that it wasn’t “the journey we were going to take.”

In keeping with the bridal theme, Jess wore an all-white outfit as she wrapped her arm around her fiancé in the sweet post.
The white crop top highlighted the television personality’s toned stomach, while a matching sarong showcased Jess’ toned legs.
Businessman William was also dressed in white and appeared cheerful despite the adversity of their wedding.
Jess captioned the post: “It’s not quite the journey we should have been on, but we couldn’t be happier now.”

Last month, Jess revealed that she will now be walking down the aisle with William in September.
In an interview with Hey! Magazine she admitted she and William had considered scrapping plans to swap the marriage in Majorca and hold a smaller ceremony in England, as pandemic regulations affect travel.
Noting that she is far from alone in her dilemma, Jessica told the publication, “I really feel for all the brides out there. Every day we went back and forth to decide what to do – it drove me crazy.’
She continued: ‘We always wanted to get married abroad with all our family and friends, but we explored every option, different dates, different places. A few weeks ago I said to Will, “Shall we have a smaller wedding here in England?”

About their fall wedding, she explained: “It gives more time for things to return to normal and for all of our loved ones to be there. I am definitely relaxed since I set the new date. I can’t wait to wear my dress – I just want to do it now.”

Jess told earlier Hey! that her sister-in-law Michelle Keegan, 33, the actress wife of her brother Mark, would be one of the bridal parties, as would her sister Natalya.
TV personality Mark, 34, who tied the knot to Michelle in 2015, has been called up to serve as master of ceremonies on his sister’s big day.
While Jessica and Will have vacationed in many exotic locations, Jess explained that Mallorca has been like a second home to her, as her family has a house on the island.
Jess said, “I’ve been dreaming of a fairytale wedding since I was little, when I dressed up in my mother’s net curtains.
“Now I can’t wait for the moment I’ve been imagining for so long, walking down the aisle in a fabulous dress to marry Will.”
