Nash - who shot to fame following the phenomenal success of her debut album Made of Bricks was reluctant to have a big wedding because she dislikes being in the showbiz spotlight.
She previously said: "I can't knock it really - I've chosen to be a musician because I love it. But I feel really uncomfortable with the whole showbiz party thing. It's just not my scene and it can be intimidating.
"I'll be in a room full of people name-dropping and schmoozing and I think, 'This is doing my head in.' I feel embarrassed when people are impressed by it all, especially when they're older than me. It's easy to get sucked in."
