Wedding Ideas magazine have announced their shortlist for best celebrity wedding of 2006 and whilst the names may not mean anything to our overseas readers, our at home fans may be a little confused. Why? Because the best celeb wedding is apparently down to footballer Ashley and Girls Aloud singer Cheryl Tweedy (pictured), Chantelle and Preston and singers Andy Scott-Lee and Michelle Heaten.
And the weddings? Well, Preston and Chantelle tied the knot in Mayfair after meeting on Celebrity Big Brother 222 days before. She wore Elizabeth Emanuel. Andy and Michelle had a TV crew follow their wedding planning with bandmates Liberty X and Jordan as bridesmaids. Meanwhile, Ashley and Cheryl spent half a million (bet you don’t feel so bad about your budget now, do you) using many of the suppliers of Victoria and David Beckham’s wedding with Cheryl wearing Roberto Cavalli.
I can only presume they were limited to picking flashy British weddings otherwise why didn’t the couples after the turn get nominated?
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes – if there’s a nomination for weirdest wedding, this one has got to win. Katie’s dress however was gorgeous.
Pamela Anderson and Kid Rock should also be nominees in the very odd wedding category.
Nicole and Keith Urban – Marrying in Nicole’s native Australia, this couple looked elegant and happy.
And what about Ant McPartlin – one half of saturday night TV favourites Ant and Dec – marrying his girlfriend Lisa Armstrong?
Finally Marica Cross and hubby Tom. Her cake is definitely an award winner and there are twins on the way too.
