"We defied all the odds and it was an absolute mission to pull it off. It was the year when it looked like we wouldn't be able to marry, and then we did," Ollie told the UK magazine.
He joked of the chosen date: "We did it on that day so I'll never forget our anniversary.”
With the UK’s restrictions constantly changing and restricting travel, planning the wedding was a difficult task for the couple, who are based in England.
Fortunately, government rules allow people to cross the border from England into Scotland in order to attend a wedding.
"We've said that time and time again; our day had real character. It was more than just a wedding as we worked within all the tier rules [restrictions put in place in different areas of the UK due to coronavirus] when we could have just said: 'Oh this is too hard.' It really made it about us," Ollie said.
Ollie previously shared plans with Metro UK of his lavish wedding that would have taken place if the COVID-19 crisis didn’t occur.
“We were supposed to get married on July 11 and it was really exciting because it was supposed to be – Ollie Ollerton, 00 – so it was going to be a James Bond wedding,” he spilled.
“We had Aston Martins lined up, everyone coming as either Bond or the villains or Bond girls so it was quite exciting.”
