Emmerdale's Michelle Hardwick marries soap producer Kate Brooks in Memphis

Emmerdale’s Michelle Hardwick has married producer Kate Brooks in Memphis and the ceremony looks adorable.

The actress, who plays Vanessa Woodfield in the ITV soap, tied the knot with Emmerdale producer Kate at Elvis Presley’s former mansion in Tennessee on Tuesday.

Sharing a snap of herself and Kate on the steps of Gracelands, she gushed: ‘In over 100 degrees heat, on Tuesday 10th September, I became Mrs Brooks.’

The 42-year-old added the captions: ‘#graceland #chapelinthewoods #memphis #nextstopnashville.’

In the cute shot, Michelle rocks a white flared jumpsuit that Elvis himself would be proud of as well as some killer sunglasses.

Kate, meanwhile, donned a white gown and held her bouquet of flowers up in the air while beaming at the camera.

Our hearts!

Naturally, the couple’s showbiz pals flocked to the comments to gush over how darn cute the whole day was.

Former Emmerdale star Gemma Atkinson left a string of love hearts, while Steps singer Faye Tozer was straight in there with a ‘Congratulations!’


Their wedding comes nine months after Michelle popped the question to Kate, following ‘months of planning’.

The actress dished on Instagram at the time: ‘So after months of planning, I popped the question!!! She said yes!!!

‘#loveislove #noordinaryproposal (sic).’

Their engagement came just two months after Michelle confirmed her romance with Kate on National Coming Out Day, which occurs annually on October 11, by sharing two black and white images.

She added the caption: ‘It will all work out in the end #behappy #nationalcomingoutday #loveislove(sic).’

While the actress, who has starred in Emmerdale since 2012, is happy to gush over her partner on Instagram, she previously admitted she gets scared to hold hands in public for fear of homophobic taunts.

She told the Mirror: ‘I feel like we’re going backwards in society with our attitudes.

‘Sometimes if Kate and I see a group of young lads we instinctively let go of each other’s hands because we’re scared they’ll turn on us.’

Michelle divorced Rosie Nicholl in 2017, 12 months after their wedding.
