“Abbey looked incredible, and even after 11 years, I still got butterflies when she walked down the aisle.
“It was a stunning island, but Ab stole the show – I’m a lucky man.”
The pair’s ceremony took place under an arch of white roses, which was also present at their 2011 wedding that took place at the Stapleford Park hotel in Leicestershire.
Abbey joked former Liverpool and Aston Villa star Peter has earned himself “brownie points for the next few years” following the romantic ceremony.
Peter announced his retirement in 2019 at the age of 38 after a long and memorable career.
He has since been enjoying gaming in his downtime – along with plenty of other projects.
The former England ace told of the moment he was left considering hanging up his boots after a session on the popular game Call of Duty infuriated Abbey.
He told Chris Moyles on Radio X: “My career finished when Abbey was locked out the house and I was playing Call of Duty.
“I had the headphones on and the mic and she was locked out of the house and I had no idea.
“I was telling people to, ‘get down! Frag out! And she’s been outside for ages banging on the door. She’s gone to the neighbours and they let them in.
“And I’m still in there, dark room, full headphones on, telling 12-year-olds to get down and cover me.
“The look she gave me was like, ‘You loser!’ And that look was the moment I thought I better leave this.”
