We thought it was all over when the former Love Island star, Olivia Attwood, confirmed her break up with footballer partner Bradley Dack for commitment issues. Olivia then went ahead and started dating her co-star Chris Hughes. But things turned around, and Olivia and Bradley reunited. Bradley Dack proposed to Olivia in October 2019.
Here we’ll discuss the couple’s whirlwind love journey and the stunning ring that sealed the marriage commitment.
Olivia Attwood and Bradley Dack – Relationship Timeline
Olivia Attwood and Bradley Dack’s love story has been far from perfect. But most relationships have their ups and downs. Olivia’s attitude of “what’s meant to be will be” has seen the relationship transition to marriage. Let’s look at their relationship timeline.
Olivia and Bradley’s love story began shortly after they met in club Libertine with mutual friends. Olivia confessed that she fell for Bradley’s cheeky smile and the fact that he promised to buy her a drink. After dating on and off for three months, the romance fizzled out, and the couple called it quits.
Olivia took a stint on the famous Love Island show. She confirmed she was single because her ex, Bradley, couldn’t commit. Shortly after, she found love again in the show. Guess who? Chris Hughes.
Olivia took to her Instagram to announce that she and Chris Hughes were no longer a couple. A little while later, she rekindled her romance with Bradley Dack. Things got controversial as most people accused her of pretending to have broken up with Bradley for showbiz reasons.
However, she defended herself, saying that she and Chris were incompatible. Their constant arguments made the relationship toxic, pushing her back into Bradley’s arms.
Olivia did it again. She announced on her Instagram that she and Bradley were no longer a couple because she couldn’t trust him. Fortunately, the love birds mended their relationship and got back together.
Bradley decided to seal the deal and show his commitment to Olivia. He proposed to her a getaway to Dubai. Olivia shared the exciting news on her Instagram account, showing a snap of a teardrop diamond ring (which we’ll discuss shortly).
Most of us had lost patience waiting for Olivia and Bradley’s wedding. Were it not for Olivia’s outspoken nature, we’d have thought it would never happen.
First, the couple had planned for an idyllic wedding abroad in 2020. But Covid happened, and they had to cancel their plans because they couldn’t travel.
Upsetting as that undoubtedly was, the couple had to cancel the wedding again in 2022. Bradley had sustained an injury this time, and they had to give him time to recover.
But finally, three years after the proposal, the couple tied the knot in a stunning ceremony at the five-star Bulgari Hotel in London.
The Flashy Engagement
Following the couple’s tumultuous relationship, most of us didn’t see a proposal on the horizon. Olivia confirmed the break-up news in April. But it the couple soon reconciled.
During their Dubai getaway, Bradley popped the question. Olivia says she cried like a “little ugly pig.” The love birds shared the news on their Instagram, posting two photos taken in front of the Burj Al Arab.
In one photo, they’re kissing while showing off Olivia’s stunning engagement ring. The other photo shows the couple holding each other and displaying the engagement ring.
They kept things simple, with Olivia wearing a white lace dress and Bradley in beige trousers and a black t-shirt.
Later in 2020, the couple held a star-studded engagement party while planning the wedding.
These love birds have a thing for tattoos. On their ITVBe show “Olivia Meets Her Match,” they revealed that they both got a tattoo of their engagement date (12/10/2019). Romantic, right?
The Long Awaited Wedding
As mentioned, Olivia and Bradley exchanged vows at the Bulgari Hotel in Knightsbridge. While talking to the Daily Mail, Olivia said having to rearrange their wedding twice helped them to reduce the guest list and prepare it to match their personality.
They said I do surrounded by over 25,000 individual flowers and 10,000 roses.
The bride wore a £30,000 lace-sleeved gown designed by Galia Lahav. While the groom wore an all-black three-piece suit.
The wedding could not have ended without tattoos. The couple had invited a celebrity tattooist to offer them and their guests their services. The newlyweds got a “Till death do us part” piercing on their upper arms. Olivia got “Till death’ and Bradley “Do us part.”
From the look of the photos that Olivia shared on her Instagram, the wedding was colorful. We can’t wait to see more details when the wedding premiers on her show “Olivia Meets Her Match.”
Let’s Hear More About Olivia’s Engagement Ring
We often yearn to see the engagement ring when we hear about a celebrity’s engagement. Bradley didn’t disappoint. He chose the impressive ring that we saw in the engagement announcement photos.
Though neither of them opened up about the designer, we know the ring featured a pear-shaped (sometimes called teardrop) diamond on a platinum heart-shaped setting. A pear-shaped diamond appears large and flashy because of its curved and pointed ends.
The choice of a platinum setting could not have been more perfect. Apart from giving the ring a long life, its white color complements the pear diamond’s fire and brilliance.
Pear-shaped diamonds symbolize commitment, loyalty, and gratitude. Also, the heart setting represents love and affection. But since Bradley didn’t mention anything, the ring could symbolize something different.
What’s the Ring’s Worth?
Although the couple shared photos of their engagement ring, we only learned about one key determining factor: cut. They didn’t mention the color, clarity, and carat grades, which you can’t determine with the naked eye. You can’t tell how much the ring costs without all these factors.
Also, we don’t know the designer. Some designers are more expensive because of their experience and craftsmanship.
However, we asked Wedding Scoop jewelry experts for their opinion to get an estimate of the ring’s cost. Taking similar rings on the market into account, it probably cost around £214,625 ($277,912.55).
