Stacey Solomon has shared another glimpse into her wedding preparations as she prepares to walk down the aisle to marry Joe Swash.

The Loose Women star, 32, and long-term partner Joe, 40, are set to get married at home at Pickle Cottage and Stacey has unveiled her wedding chairs and tables to fans.

Stacey – who recently gave fans a wedding make-up update – shared a video of the preparations, which included several large wooden tables stacked on top of each other.

Over the video, she wrote: "GOOD MORNING set up time…

"A special message to Ikea who have given me the opportunity to borrow their beautiful chairs, tables, cutlery, plates and so much more so that we can use them for the day and then we will clean them & donate them to charity.

"I am so grateful to have this chance to be able to give to different charities to pass on to people who will be able to use it… It's a huge privilege to have a platform & i don't take it for granted. Nothing is guaranteed and nothing lasts forever so while I have the chance, I'm so glad to be able to do things like this…

"Thank you @ikea AD – Now time to set them up".

It comes after the star announced that she and Joe are having a "relaxed private blessing" in front of their close friends and family at their home of Pickle Cottage and will register their marriage legally at a later date.

Stacey took to her Instagram feed to clear up any confusion around her Essex home wedding after a fan asked how it all works.

"So excited for you and your family. Being nosey but I always wanted to get married at home and didn't think you could? How does it work?" one of her 5.3million followers questioned, followed by a black heart emoji.

Reposting the message, Stacey explained: "To get married anywhere legally, the place has to have a "civil ceremony" licence.

"One of the requirements for this licence is that the premises must be made "readily available" for ceremonies…"

She then explained that this is something her and Joe didn't want to do as she continued: "As this is our private family home and we need it to remain that way we couldn't go for that option," followed by a crying with laughter emoji.

She added: "So we are having a relaxed private blessing in front of our closest friends & family and a ceremony of our love to each other and we will register our marriage legally after…

"Hope this helps," with two black heart emojis.

In the run up to her wedding, Stacey has been putting her DIY skills to good use – upcycling many items to be used for the ceremony, including her Christmas lanterns.
