Around 75 friends and family reportedly attended the sun-kissed nuptials, which took place outside a small chapel on Wednesday, with Paul’s Bake Off co-star Prue Leith among the guests.

The newlyweds and their loved ones partied late into the night at the reception in the hotel’s entertainment area and had already been in Cyprus for a week, celebrating their impending nuptials with swanky meals and gatherings.

A source said, ‘It was a very tasteful and stylish wedding and the hotel management really pulled out all the stops to make it a memorable day. There was a very lively party with loud music and lots of drinking that went on until late into the night.

‘Paul is very close to the hotel owners and they made sure that everybody had a great time. He loves Cyprus and it was a wonderful setting for what was a beautiful occasion.’

Paul and Melissa had been dating for three years when he popped the question towards the end of 2022. The couple had kept the news quiet before it was reported but Melissa eventually began wearing her engagement ring.

Cyprus is clearly a special place for the lovebirds as they are known to have holidayed at a five-star hotel there in the early days of their relationship. They confirmed their romance in December 2019 after spending Christmas together at Melissa’s pub, while a spokesperson for Paul said at the time: ‘They are very happily together.’

They took their relationship to the next level during lockdown when Melissa moved into Paul’s farmhouse.

This is Paul’s second marriage as he was previously wed to his first wife Alexandra. Their wedding also took place in Cyrpus but the pair split in 2017 after 19 years of marriage.

He was then in a relationship with Summer Monteys-Fullam after the pair met in the summer of 2017. However, their romance came to an end in 2019 after he asked her to sign a non-disclosure agreement.
