The X factor star, 32, shared snaps to his Instagram account ahead of the bride and groom but insisted he had been given permission when faced with mounting backlash.
He defensively told his followers: ‘Please, please, if you see something and you don’t know the full story, don’t comment, because it’s utterly boring.’
Under attack: Jake Quickenden was forced to defend himself on Thursday after fans were outraged he’d shared photos from Camilla Thurlow and Jamie Jewitt’s wedding
Jake’s post showed Camilla, 32, in a stunning fishtail bridal gown and veil while her new husband beamed in a three piece suit after their secret ceremony.
The singer seemed surly as he hit back in the wake of the outcry: ‘Why do people just find any reason to be negative or to moan or to have an opinion when they don’t know what’s gone on?
‘They don’t know that it said on the table to share photos and use a hashtag. They don’t know that permission was asked,’ he rebuked.
And snaps from inside the event backed up Jake’s defence as the table sign read: ‘Please share photos of our special day using our hashtag #JustJewitt.’

But that didn’t stop hoards of fans rushing to the comments to condemn his actions.
‘Whether you asked permission or not is irrelevant. You just had to post a photo right away didn’t you even before they did. It’s not like they would say no you can’t as they would feel rude to say that. Have some class and etiquette young man and stop being the laughing stock,’ wrote one.
‘Should you have posted before they did?’ added another, while a third added: ‘Why would you want to post photos before the bride and groom regardless if you asked them? Not very fair on them.’

Her friends, who looked equally as happy in their summery flower hair wreaths, each flashed a beaming smile towards the camera as they celebrated Camilla’s milestone.

Yet Camilla previously admitted that she almost ruined the proposal as she had planned to change Nell’s outfit before dinner.
The former bomb disposal expert confessed: ‘Jamie had got her a babygrow which said ‘Mummy will you marry my daddy?’
‘But I almost ruined it because I went to change her before dinner but Jamie managed to say, ‘No, don’t worry, I will do it!” So I would have found out a little too early, but he managed to save it.’

‘But it’s been amazing, we feel so lucky to be spending so much time with her. She’s nearly five-months-old.’
