"Everyone partied at the venue until around midnight and then went to a few different clubs.
"It was such a brilliant evening and they looked so happy."
However, while she was surrounded by family and friends, some of Vicky's celeb pals weren't able to make the bash.
A source revealed: "Some of Vicky's celebrity friends couldn't make the date work because of work commitments which was totally understandable. Vicky and John had a wonderful evening with their nearest and dearest."
Ferne is currently heavily pregnant with her first child and is believed to be due before Christmas.
