EastEnders Louisa Lytton finally marries fiance in Italy after postponing wedding 3 times

EastEnders star Louisa Lytton has finally married long-term partner Ben Bhanvra in Italy, after being forced to delay their wedding three times.

The actress, 33, best known for playing Ruby Allen on the soap, had to postpone her nuptials three times due to the travel restrictions and limits to guest numbers imposed by the pandemic.

And just a week before they were due to tie the knot in Tuscany, the couple tested positive for Covid, delaying their special day even further.

The couple are parents to 10 month old daughter, Aura. They got engaged in 2019, and were first set to marry in August 2020 before the pandemic stalled their plans.

Days ago, on Friday 1 July, Louisa posted some snaps to Instagram in the idyllic Italian countryside, with another photo of her holding her daughter.

She posted them with the caption: “Two years in the making. . Let’s finally go get married @bennnyy__.”

“Here’s to ever covid bride finally getting down that aisle #MrsB.”

Both current and former co-stars commented on the post.

James Bye, who plays her on-screen husband Martin Fowler, wrote: “See you soon @louisanastrilytton.”

While Kara Tointon, who portrayed Dawn Swann on the soap from 2005 to 2009, replied with several heart-eye emojis.

As the big day approached, Louisa had been documenting her last minute wedding prep on Instagram.

Three weeks before their big day, she shared a snap of the family of three from the airport as they prepared to jet off to Italy to visit their wedding venue ahead of the ceremony.

She wrote: “Off to our wedding venue for final bits and bobs. I have chest pains from nerves.”

Louisa previously spoke to OK! after postponing her wedding the first time round, explaining it had been an emotional experience.

“It was emotional making the decision to postpone it because you put all this work and effort into something, build it all up in your head, and then suddenly it’s not happening for ages,” she said.

She added: “We had to let the venue know whether we still wanted to change the date or go ahead 12 weeks before. They told us that if we didn’t move the date then we could miss out on next summer too, as they were already booking up. That made the decision for us really. Another factor was that we really want our grandparents at the wedding, and we were concerned because they are on the vulnerable list.

“There was no way I was going ahead with the wedding if our grandparents would be at risk, and there was also no way I would get married without them there.”
