Obviously embracing the holiday feeling, Cara is fresh-faced with her locks pushed back out of her face in the picture.

The trip comes after Cara and Nathan tied the knot in July while in Kent surrounded by family and friends and X Factor’s Scarlett Lee sang at the ceremony.

Sparks instantly flew between the couple when they paired up on the first day of Love Island - remaining a unit for the entirety of the reality series.

Summer seems like a long and distant memory now that the afternoons are dark and the temperature has nosedived. But if you're lucky enough to be jetting away for some winter sun, then we have just the bikini for you!

Worn by Cara Delahoyde, the 'Cabana' bikini set by Andi Bagus has got us desperate for warmer days.

If we didn't have enough reasons already to book a trip to somewhere hot and exotic, this bikini has definitely got us checking out some flights.

The square neck, sports style top is a great shape as it provides coverage and support while still being on-trend and comfortable.

The shell embellishment is super cute and perfect for a holiday somewhere hot, beachy and exotic.

Speaking ahead of the wedding, Cara praised Nathan's organisational skills in the lead up to their big day.

She told OK! Magazine: 'Nathan has been amazing, he has been like a superhero, running around doing everything, doing all the last minute calls.

'I'm a weirdo like that, I don't like talking on the phone – I've always been like that, I don't know why! So Nathan's been making the last minute calls. 

'We had our final checks with the wedding planners and then we decided to go to Portugal for the week to visit Nathan's aunt and spend some time with our friends and their children.

She also previously told the publication: 'We won't be inviting people we met one time. The wedding is for us, not for the pictures'. 

In April 2017, the former Playboy star and ex-carpenter shocked when they announced their split, 10 months after winning the show - but reunited seven months later.

The news that they had broken up came as a shock to fans, and Cara announced they were expecting their first child together just two months later, but the duo reconciled in time for the birth. 

Lifting the lid on their brief time apart, Nathan attributed their split to him needing to 'grow up', branding their split 'the best thing we've ever done'.
