They even flew in Nile Rodgers and Chic from the US to celebrate their nuptials in style with celebrity pals AJ Odudu, Vernon Kay, Scott Mills and Jordan North, too.
Much like they’re relationship, they kept the details of their wedding, which took place at Hulne Priory, Alnwick, Northumberland, under wraps.
As the pair start their lives as Mr & Mrs, The Sun’s Fabulous takes a look at their relationship timeline…

At the start of 39-year-old Calvin’s career in the DJ space, he asked the little-known broadcaster Vick, 33, out on a date.
Back in 2007, when Calvin was in his ‘Acceptable in the ‘80s’ era, he worked up the courage to ask the brunette beauty out.
But she rejected him, telling You Magazine: “It’s something that we laughed about on our first proper date…
“We still laugh about it now.”
The topic of their failed launch came up again while Vick was live on her radio show with Roman Kemp, who teased her about it.
He said it was a shame they didn’t go out as Calvin had “one of the best glow ups” he’d ever seen.
At the time, Vick confessed: “I went off with either Scouting for Girls or The Wombats. I don’t know which.
“I thought they were going to be bigger, but no, it turns out Calvin Harris was going to turn into an Adonis.”
Despite Calvin’s failed attempt at a date in the mid 2000s, he did eventually get the girl.

In 2022, rumours began swirling that the pair were an item and it wasn’t long before they confirmed public suspicion.
The couple made their first official outing at The Chelsea Flower Show in May 2022.
Vick looked gorgeous as she donned a long patterned skirt with a matching crop, which she paired with white trainers and a straw-style handbag. Meanwhile, Calvin wore a simple black T-shirt with khaki trousers and white trainers.
While they weren’t spotted holding hands are sharing a kiss, the couple were clearly smitten with one another as they kept close and laughed together.
During the same outing, people couldn’t help but notice a sparkling diamond sitting on her ring finger – just five months after they got together.
It led to much speculation around the couple’s whirlwind romance, with Vick confirming the news in October 2022.
She told Hello! Magazine: “You know what, I was overwhelmed by the interest in it but I’m keeping my private life private.
“I’ve never really experienced ‘this’ before about my private life, but it’s just for us.”

While they may have got engaged in 2022, they didn’t move in together until March this year, when Vick finally relocated to Calvin’s £7.5million North London pad.
Vick was photographed looking overjoyed as she donned a black backpack while her other half wheeled a suitcase.
While Vick and Calvin made it crystal clear they would be keeping their relationship and wedding on the down low, The Sun managed to get a few juicy details around the plans back in April.
At the time, a source told us: “Calvin and Vick have kept their relationship out of the public eye for the most part, so aren’t having a massive wedding to parade their love in front of the world.
“Instead they want it to be a much more intimate and simple day.
“They have been planning it for months and everything is now coming together.”
