Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan marked finally finishing their dream home in spectacular style this weekend.
Dubbed ‘Marchella‘, a nod to California‘s Coachella, the house-warming mini-festival saw close friend Olly Murs and Scouting for Girls performing in front of the couple’s lit-up pool at their Essex mansion, as friends and family looked on, glasses in hand.
For reality star-turned presenter Wright and his actress wife, both 36, moving into their forever home – built from scratch after they purchased the land for £1.3million in 2019 – has taken almost two years.
During that time, the couple have frequently shared their journey, from original architect designs to choosing the right marble for their kitchen surfaces, on their @wrightyhome Instagram account – which has amassed 570,000 followers.
Like any stars with a huge social media presence – Wright has 1.8million Instagram fans, while Keegan has 6.7million – collaborations have come their way, with the couple seemingly lucky enough to have a slew of suppliers willing to collaborate with them on helping bring their property dream to life.
The couple, who are estimated to have a joint wealth of £12million, also haven’t been shy about putting call-outs for companies to work with them.
Many of the posts on @Wrightyhome are marked with #ad, #brandpartner or #prproduct. MailOnline has contacted the couple’s representatives for clarification.
Here, we look at just some of the brands the couple have promoted along the way…
LAVISH FIXTURES AND FITTINGS
A temple to neutral hues, the Wright’s home is a vision of gold, creams, whites and beiges. A collaboration with upmarket interiors company Olivia’s has seen the property looking every inch the show-home.
Each room is adorned with thousands of pounds worth of artwork, furniture and chic accessories, many of which have come from the interiors company.
Indeed there’s a dedicated page for shoppers keen to recreate the Wrights’ look.
A Liang & Eimil Baldwin ceiling lamp in antique brass retails at £1,348, complemented by four alfa boucle dining chairs, which retail at £904 for a pair. The chairs surrounds a gold and marble six seater dining table – which costs a cool £3,047.
Some of the couple’s sofas – including a sprawling ‘heavenly U-shaped sofa’ in Alaska Pearl that stretches 14ft at its longest point, come from Bella Home, with prices given on request.
A model like the one seen in the couple’s living room, which has a snooze-inducing depth of 116cm, retails at around £5560, according to Bella Home.
In the bathrooms, there are his and hers custom-made basins in porcelain from Hertfordshire company Mitres, who also helped the couple with their tiling needs. The Instagram post showing off the bespoke products glowed: ‘Looking for a feature in your bathrooms at home, look no further!! #basins #worktop #brandpartner #porcelain.’
The neutral, concrete-effect wallpaper that lines many of the rooms in the couple’s home came from @brewerspaints – while the adhesive even got a mention in the detailed posts about how the couple achieved their look.
A SWEEPING DRIVEWAY
Last summer, as the property’s exterior really began shaping up, the Wrights showed off the sweeping new driveway – estimated to be worth a cool £100,000 – installed at the front of their Essex mansion.
In the post accompanying the video showcasing the vast driveway – worthy of a five-star hotel – the account namechecks the company who laid the expansive grey stone driveway alongside the hashtag #prproduct, which suggests the item could have been discounted to the couple.
Wright wrote alongside the video: ‘Driveway complete… Buzzing with the light grey we have chosen. Having the drive done makes it really start to feel like home!! For those that will ask, paving slabs come from @marshallsgroup and we are buzzing off them!! #driveway #home #prproduct #grey #happy.’
TOP OF THE RANGE TECH AND A STATE OF THE ART GYM
Last year, the Wrights posted a video of Mark showing off a new 75-inch flatscreen Samsung TV, thought to be worth around £2,000, before it was unveiled on the wall.
The clip carried the caption: ‘Ad | Big day at the house… the @samsunguk TV’s have arrived!! Unbelievable picture quality, and incredible 3D sound from all sides of the screen and soundbar. #SamsungNeoQLED #TeamSamsungUK @nowtv’.
Posts for high-security gates and beautiful glass screens for shower and sauna rooms include a line asking companies who might be able to work with them to ‘inbox us’.
In 2022, Wright, dressed his own-brand sportwear, shared that he was ‘buzzing’ with his roomy home gym, with stunning herringbone parquet flooring and Taurus fitness equipment, which is thought to have cost around £50,000 to install.
MailOnline has contacted the Wrights for comment.
WHAT ARE THE RULES ON CELEBS GETTING #PRPRODUCTS?
Celebrities and influencers must declare when they’ve received a product that is discounted or gifted or face the wrath of the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA).
In 2019, the CMA made an order for stars to be more transparent over their endorsement deals when posting to social media.
If they do not clearly declare if they have been paid or received products as gifts they endorse, they could be in breach of consumer protection law.
Posts containing advertising must, by law, be flagged with the hashtag #ad, #sponsored or #freebie in a ‘prominent’ position on each individual post.
All content that includes adverts or discount codes and provides a form of payment, whether monetary or in the shape of free gifts, must also be declared.
