Fleur admitted she had been dreaming of her big day for a long time.
She told Britain's HELLO! magazine: "I think every girl grows up thinking of their wedding. I'm a huge fan of love and romance. Marcel always laughs at me, saying I live in Disneyland and that I believe in fairytales!"
And her new husband is ready to put in "a lot of work" to make their union last.
He said: "There's a big difference between a marriage and a wedding - and you've got to make sure you've met the right person. It's a lot of work. You need a friend as well as a lover; someone who understands you and has the same vision as you. It's a long journey and if you're going to commit, you've got to understand the full picture. And when you meet the right person, you know."
The 31-year-old singer - who got engaged while on holiday in Japan in March - admitted in April her wedding plans were well underway and they were planning to tie the knot overseas.
Asked if they've started planning their wedding, Fleur said: "Yes, straight away. We were like, 'Let's do it this year!'
"I've got to try some [dressed] on but I know it will be something different, something a bit unusual.
"It will be abroad. I've always said I want to get married abroad. I just love the sunshine and it's too cold here."
