The ITV actress, who portrayed fan favourite character Kate Connor on the soap, has tied the knot with her former co-star.
The pair, who both starred in the touring producing of Legally Blonde the musical, were friends for over a decade before finally getting together.
Speaking about seeing Faye for the first time in her princess-style gown with a gorgeous train and veil, Iwan told OK! Magazine that it was as if their “relationship condensed into one explosive moment”.
He said: “I was overawed with emotion. I was as cool as a cucumber and kept going up to people saying, ‘My hand is so steady.’
“But as soon as she started coming down the aisle I could feel the energy build and I couldn’t hold it together at all.
“Then when Faye started crying, I started crying,” he added. “But as soon as we went into the service, we were really laser-focused.”
Faye added: “I couldn’t look at anybody else but Iwan, because everybody else there overwhelmed me – I could feel their energy, I could feel how excited they were.
“I was overcome with emotion when my dad gave me away and seeing Iwan cry as well. It is a rare moment to see him cry, and when he does, it’s beautiful.
“Once we were into our vows and locked eyes, I said to him it’s as if time stood still and nobody else was there.”
Faye looked gorgeous as she wed the love of her life in a stunning church ceremony, which took place in front of their 200 nearest and dearest.
The spectacular occasion also featured a performance from Faye’s former Corrie co-star Victoria Ekanoye and a huge firework display.
The Dancing On Ice star married her theatre producer husband on August 23 in a 13th-century church, St John The Baptist, in the village of Shipton Moyne, Gloucestershire.
Her five bridesmaids included her sisters Nicky and Jodie, and close friends Djalenga, Sophie and Rebecca.
