‘I was blown away by the beauty of it all’: Good Morning Britain presenter Alex Beresford marries fiancée Imogen McKay in magical Mallorcan wedding ceremony
Alex Beresford has married his fiancée, Imogen McKay, in an intimate ceremony on the picturesque Spanish island of Mallorca.
The Good Morning British weatherman, 41, and McKay, 29, were introduced on a blind date in August 2020, arranged by a mutual friend.
In conversation with HELLO! Magazine of the wedding, which included a cliff-top ceremony at Son Marroig’s estate, Beresford said: “I was struck by the beauty of it all.

“One of my cousins said it was like something out of a movie, and it really was. It was amazing from start to finish. But most importantly, that’s where I married the woman I love.”
Beresford revealed he had proposed to McKay in April and explained that he popped the question on New Year’s Day while the couple were strolling along the beach in Mallorca.
McKay grew up in Australia and works in e-commerce for a restaurant in London.

“I couldn’t wait to marry Alex,” she said. “Seeing him and all our loved ones in this incredible setting made me so emotional.”
Beresford’s 12-year-old son Cruz from a previous relationship acted as ring bearer and “mini best man”, while the presenter’s brother and cousin were ushers and his best friends – both named Leon – were the groomsmen.
McKay’s sisters – Helena and Georgia – were bridesmaids and led the bridal procession down the aisle to the base of a white marble temple where the ceremony took place.
Beresford said: “When I turned and saw Imogen walking towards me, my heart skipped a beat. She looked amazing. So classically beautiful and exactly how I imagined it.”
The wedding anniversary coincided with the Queen’s funeral on September 19 and Beresford said he paid his respects to the late monarch that morning.
“I woke up very early and saw the beginning (the funeral) on TV in a cafe in the village,” Beresford said. “That was my way of paying tribute to Her Majesty.”
Beresford was embroiled in the on-air row with GMB co-host Piers Morgan over the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s interview with Oprah Winfrey, which resulted in Morgan storming off the set and the ITV show on the day of the year left in 2021.
