Stacey Solomon and Joe Swash have decided to spend their honeymoon at their incredible Essex family home in order to spend time with their children.
The Loose Women panellist, 32, and former EastEnders star Joe, 30, tied the knot on 24 July at their £1.2 million abode, which they've lovingly named Pickle Cottage, in a stunning ceremony surrounded by their nearest and dearest.
The pair's nuptials took place in the sprawling garden at their family home with the guest list including celebs such as Loose Women's Linda Robson, 64, along with TOWIE stars Ricky Rayment, 31, and James 'Arg' Argent, 34.
However, instead of jetting off on a luxury honeymoon together Stacey and Joe have opted to remain at Pickle Cottage with their brood and make family memories throughout the summer holidays.
The newlyweds are parents to son Rex, three, and 10 month old daughter Rose, and Stacey is also mum to sons Zachary, 14, and Leighton, 10, from previous relationships while Joe shares on Harry, 15, with his ex Emma Sophocleous.
Explaining her and Joe's honeymoon destination decision, Stacey shared a clip of Leighton climbing a tree in their garden and wrote: "Making the most of every second of the summer we have off with the pickles…
"This is our honeymoon. We are calling it a "homeymoon because we just wanted to spend time at home with all the kids all summer.

"We're always one in one out and all over the place. So this time at home is just all we could have dreamed of," the mum-of-four added with a smiling emoji.
There's no doubt the family will enjoy the summer holidays together as earlier this year Stacey unveiled the incredible swimming pool in her and Joe's back garden after spending months transforming it.
The couple have completely transformed the £1.2m property over the past year and made it into their dream family home, with it now boasting a state of the art kitchen, swimming pool, playhouse and more.
Stacey then gave the home a full makeover ahead of her and Joe's wedding, with the Loose Women star creating a gorgeous front door display, a tea wall, numerous floral decorations and more.
She continued to share sneak peeks of her plans for the wedding as it drew closer, and then just days after she and Joe finally exchanged vows, Stacey shared a string of professional photographs of their nuptials.
The 32 year old penned a gushing caption which started with her declaring: “Forever. Me and My Husband. I don’t think I will ever get used to saying that. It all feels like a dream.”
She went on to explain that she and Joe had copyrighted their wedding photos, with their use in any publication hinging upon a donation to be made to a charity to support bereaved children, as Joe had lost his father at a young age, just like her own father, David, did.
Choosing to use their happy day to bring little more light to children growing up with loss, Stacey then added: “Joe lost his father at the age of 11 and so did my dad. A huge part of our wedding day was reflecting on how this had a huge effect on them and how hard it is, even to this day to deal with.
These memories are so special to us and it would mean the absolute world to us if they made a difference to children growing up with the loss and heartache that my father and my husband did.”
