BBC weather presenter Carol Kirkwood has announced she has married her partner Steve.

The couple’s wedding took place on Wednesday in Buckinghamshire.

“It was the most perfect and romantic and intimate wedding. We are both so incredibly happy,” she told BBC Breakfast.

Kirkwood, 61, revealed her engagement live on BBC Breakfast from the Chelsea Flower Show in 2022.

At the time, she showed off her engagement ring during a weather forecast and said: “We went out for a picnic, I had absolutely no idea.

“The weather was glorious, we were sitting chatting… he was fumbling in his pocket and then out came a ring, I thought he was joking actually, I didn’t believe him to start with.”

In a post on X, formerly known as Twitter, Kirkwood thanked well-wishers and said she and Steve are “bursting with happiness”.

“It wasn’t a ‘secret’ wedding, just a private one,” she added.

Inverness-shire-born Kirkwood joined the BBC Weather Centre team in 1998 andhas been named best TV weather presenter at the Television and Radio Industries Club Awards on nine separate occasions – including every year from 2012 to 2017, since when the category has been dropped.

Kirkwood has not revealed many details about Steve, including his last name, but she previously told Prima Magazine that he was “extremely handsome” and “always making me laugh”.

“He always makes me a cup of tea before I go to work in the morning, which is very romantic – it’s 2.45am!

“And he often leaves me a little love note for when I come home from work. That, to me, is worth a million red roses,” she said.

Kirkwood added that he was “the best thing that’s ever happened to me, without a shadow of a doubt”.
