However, the beauty queen turned politician – known for being very active on social media – has held off on sharing photos of the wedding or anything related to the affair… until Saturday morning, when she posted stunning photos of herself posing in her wedding dress, made in Jamaica by a local designer who she thanked in the caption.
“Always and Forever...Thank You Louise Graham,” Hanna wrote. “Thanks for respecting my wishes to keep our marriage and those who attended our wedding private.”
The 42-year-old Hanna wed her long time beau in a ceremony in St Andrew last Saturday, with the pair exchanging vows on a balcony overlooking the city in a beautiful affair.
In a heartfelt message, also on Saturday morning, the newly minted Mrs Lake expressed her love for her husband.
“Richard and I have loved and been devoted to each other over many years. Our love has not only survived but prevailed given our shared commitment and respect for each other,” she said, adding “He's my protector and I am his…Last week we both privately took another deliberate step on our journey together in our most sacred place.”
She also thanked persons who extended congratulations and well wishes toward the newlyweds.
“I ask that you respect my desire to keep our marriage and those who attended our wedding private… Just have a little patience with me as I allow my heart to enjoy this moment of bliss,” she said.
It is Hanna's second marriage, having previously tied the knot with businessman David Panton. The couple, who share a teenage son, divorced in 2004 after five years of marriage.
