Britain's Olympic hockey star Sam Quek has revealed how she felt complete being married. Quek tied the knot with boyfriend Tom Mairs at Chester Racecourse last Sunday, a year after the couple's engagement when Mairs proposed to her while they were on holiday in Tenerife island in Spain.
For her wedding, Quek wore a sweeping ivory wedding dress, with an intricate lace bodice, a crisp white skirt and a long veil, while Mairs opted for a blue suit and a grey checked waistcoat.

"I didn't really believe in dream weddings and the idea of the one until I met Tom. I feel complete and warm inside. I don't remember seeing anything apart from the back of Tom. I was so nervous walking down the aisle — it felt like the walk was forever. My dad gave me away, which was very emotional. Walking down the aisle and seeing Tom was my highlight. All of a sudden it was a massive hit of reality," Quek told OK! magazine.

Recently, she shared this picture with husband (above) on Instagram and wrote: "OFF ON OUR HONEYMOON!! 1st Stop — Disney World, Orlando! #disneyworld #honeymoon #marriage #BA."
