Sam Fox and her fiancée Linda tied the knot in a lavish ceremony in Epping Forest, Essex, on Saturday after announcing their engagement in March 2020 – and have now shared inside pictures from the grand bash.
The former Page 3 model, 56, walked down the aisle with her partner on Saturday after they were forced to postpone their 2020 wedding due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Singer Sam looked incredible in a strapless white bridal gown at her wedding party, which saw the happy couple cut into a pink three-tier cake, with performances from Norwegian pop duo Bobbysocks.

Sam started a relationship with Linda in 2016, and previously said she was in a ‘really good place’ after her partner of 12 years, Myra died in 2015 from cancer.
The former glamour model, who recently suffered a cancer scare after finding a lump in her vocal cords, announced in 2018 she had finally found love again with the Norwegian single mother-of-two.
Samantha recently told OK! magazine that after postponing their initial wedding due to the Covid pandemic, they planned to wait so their loved ones can attend from around the world.
During the interview, Sam revealed her ‘great mate’ Motörhead lead singer Lemmy – who died in 2015 – had offered to step in and walk her down the aisle after her father died.

Sam’s father Patrick, who managed her career until 1991, died in 2000.
Her stunning wedding dress featured a sparkling sequinned bodice and a long draping train, while she also opted for a dramatic veil which billowed out behind her as she walked.
One dedicated member of her wedding party walked behind her and held her train and veil in the air, giving a peak at her gorgeous silver wedged heels.
Sam styled her platinum blonde tresses in a chic half-up half-down style and accentuated her striking features with a glamorous make-up palette for the big day.
She arrived at the lavish ceremony in a white taxi decorated with pink ribbons and a stunning blush heart-shaped floral arrangement on the bonnet, while the number plate read ‘Sam and Linda are getting married, 18th June 2022’.

Big day: The former Page 3 model was greeted by a crew of staff holding umbrellas, who worked to protect her from the rainy weather
She was seen sheltering under white umbrellas as she headed towards her wedding ceremony to protect her glittering ensemble from the rainy weather.
Meanwhile, her wife-to-be Linda looked stunning as she was seen stepping out of her vehicle and dashing underneath a row of white umbrellas as she headed into the Essex wedding venue.
Linda did not fail to capture attention in a stunning white bridal gown adorned with lace across the bodice and draping down the intricately designed train.
The Norwegian mother-of-two fixed her chocolate locks back into a half-up half-down style and fixed a voluminous white veil into her tresses as she looked every inch the bride.
It comes after a source confirmed to MailOnline that Sam Fox was set to ‘tie the knot with fiancée Linda Olsen on Saturday’.
Last month, Linda shared her excitement at finding her wedding dress, sharing a snap of herself in David’s bridal in Stratford alongside the caption: ‘Our big day is getting closer’.
While a representative of Sam confirmed to MailOnline: ‘Wedding nuptials are on the cards – Sam and Linda are looking forward to a glorious day’.
The happy news comes six years after Samantha lost her beloved long term girlfriend of 12 years, Myra Stratton, to cancer.
Sam and Linda’s engagement was announced in March 2020, with a source telling The Sun at the time: ‘Sam and Linda are so happy together and want to spend the rest of their lives together. They’re so in love and want to make it official.’

Asked if she plans to invite any celebrity friends, Sam said: ‘A few I’ve known a long time. I want to invite the people who got me where I am today.
‘I know a lot of celebrities but they’re not my real friends, but there’s a few coming.’
Meanwhile, the happy couple were spotted at Covent Garden flower market getting floral ideas for their big day with the help of celebrity florist Warren Bushaway from London Event florist.
Samantha spoke about Linda in 2017 after coming out of the Celebrity Big Brother House.
During her time in CBB, Sam told former Geordie Shore star Marnie Simpson: ‘I’ve now [fallen] in love with another woman.’

Yes to the dress: Norwegian mother-of-two Linda shared her excitement at finding her wedding dress last month, sharing a snap of herself in David’s bridal in Stratford alongside the caption: ‘Our big day is getting closer’
‘I met somebody a couple of months ago and I’m very happy. As you get older life goes so quick.’
She also discussed her sexuality whilst inside the house, and said she hadn’t fallen in love with a woman until she met Myra.
Sam explained: ‘I just believe that love is far greater than anything. You can’t help who you fall in love with.
‘If you fall in love with somebody, you fall in love with them. You can’t help that can you.’
Can’t wait: Linda was overjoyed at finding her dream dress as she thanked her mother-in-law Carole Fox and son Adam Olsen for helping her to choose the gown
Sam gave a statement about her sexuality in 2003- the year she embarked on a relationship with Myra- after much speculation.
She said at the time: ‘I have slept with other women but I’ve not been in love before Myra Stratton. People say I’m gay.
‘All I know is that I’m in love with Myra [Stratton, my manager]. I love her completely and want to spend the rest of my life with her.’
Samantha added she had been reluctant to come out because, having already dealt with obsessed stalkers and feared fans’ possible reactions.
