"Queer Eye" grooming expert Jonathan Van Ness (better known as JVN) and his husband Mark Peacock took to Instagram to celebrate their first wedding anniversary on June 5.

"Happy One Year Wedding Anniversary @marklondon," Van Ness captioned an image of the couple on Instagram. "I love our adventures and I can't wait to make more."

In a series of photos posted to JVN's Instagram account, the two are shown together on their wedding day and on their many travels around the world.

The post, which drew close to 1 million likes, also garnered congratulations from their celebrity friends, including Van Ness' "Queer Eye" colleagues.

"BEAUTIFUL," Heidi Klum commented with a heart emoji.

"Aaw, Happy Anniversary, to you both," fashion designer and "Queer Eye" fashion expert Tan France chimed in, adding with heart emojis: "I hope you have such a wonderful day."

Peacock's also added a celebratory message for Van Ness on his own Instagram account. "Happy 1st Anniversary babe," he wrote with a slideshow that included an image of his and Van Ness' clasped hands at their wedding, another of the couple inspecting their wedding rings, and a more candid snapshot of Van Ness and Peacock at home with one of their cats.

As Entertainment Tonight recalled, Van Ness and Peacock didn't make their June 2020 marriage public knowledge until Van Ness broke the news with a New Year's Eve post which read: "I got married to my best friend & have a loving partner to continue building my life with."

"Van Ness later shared how the two met and how their relationship blossomed," ET added. "In an Instagram post earlier this year, the hairstylist said that they went on a 'date in London, which turned into more dates whilst I was on comedy tour.'"
