When Olympic Swimmers Dominik Meichtry and Jessica Hardy (right) decided to take the plunge and get married they thought they’d do things a little differently.

Rather than having their photos taken outside a boring church they stripped out of their wedding togs and headed straight to the pool to show off their matching ‘Just Married’ swimsuits and ‘Mr and Mrs’ Speedo caps.

Pool wedding


Not sure if the vows were read under water or if the bride swam up the lane rather than walk down the aisle.

But hopefully things went a little better than the engagement when Swiss Olympic swimmer Dominik left the engagement ring in Jessica’s backpack at the World Championships in Barcelona and she unwittingly gave the backpack away to one of the volunteers to say thankyou.

Luckily she was able to get it back after putting out a message on Twitter – see below

The couple have been dating since November 2011, meeting shortly after Olivia split from her husband of eight years, Tao Ruspoli.

McFly’s Tom Fletcher beats nerves by singing wedding speech

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on January 9th, 2013

Public speaking: either you love it or hate it. So what do you do, when its your wedding day and you have to stand up in front of your friends and family and say some emotionally loaded words?

McFly’s Tom Fletcher did what he knows best to make sure his fear of public speaking not ruin his wedding day and sang his way through it.  And as expected, the song was received with applause, laughter and many tears.

“It’s possibly the most nervous I’ve ever been in my life (about the speech, not the wedding!),” Fletcher wrote on YouTube. “I got a load of ideas by watching other speeches on youtube so if there are any future grooms on here in desperate need of inspiration (like I was) then I hope this helps.”

Make sure you watch it right to the end. It just gets better and better.

2013 celebrity wedding predictions. We ask the magic eight ball

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on January 2nd, 2013

With the jury still out on whether Hollywood A-listers Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt or not (we think they have), we thought we’d ask our magic eight ball if some of the other celebrity couples around will make it down the aisle to say I do this year.

Some of the below are probably more likely to happen regardless of what the magic eight ball says as their wedding planning is well under way, but who really knows…

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux


Will Jennifer and Justin marry this year?

Magic eight ball says: Outlook not so good.

Uh oh, will Jen not get her prince?

Sienna Miller and Tom Sturridge


Will Tom finally marry Sienna two years after popping the question?

Magic eight ball says: Ask again later…

When we asked later the answer was ‘absolutely!’. Let’s wait and see…

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West


Having announced that they are expecting their first child,
will a wedding be on the cards for Kimye in 2013?
We all know how long Kim’s last marriage lasted…

Magic eight ball says: My sources say no.

Perhaps a baby is enough for one year for lovebirds Kim and Kanye.

Princess Madeline and Chris O’Neill


We love a royal wedding, and this year it is Swedish Princess Madeline who is
set to tie the knot. Her chosen man: British-American business man Chris O’Neill.

Will Princess Madeline marry her Prince in 2013?

Magic eight ball says: Yes.

A clear and definite answer. We’d expect nothing less, it is a royal wedding after all.

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on December 4th, 2012

The date of their wedding has yet to be announced, but Sunday night Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux threw a party to celebrate their engagement.

As expected the shindig was a star-studded event, with Hollywood A-listers such as Demi Moore, Ben Stiller, Ellen DeGeneres and her wife Portia DeRossi joining the happy couple at their Beverly Hills home.

Despite the impressive guest list, the party itself is said to have been a very ‘laid-back’affair which lasted into the early hours of the morning.

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on October 25th, 2012

It’s the most talked about dress this week and finally the world has caught a glimpse of Jessica Biel’s pink wedding dress.

As seen here, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel sold their wedding photos exclusively to People magazine. Despite finding it hard to choose a dress, Jessica wore a bespoke petal-pink strapless gown made of silk mousseline and silk organza with a light-pink floral motif described as ‘whimsical and dramatic’.

Behind the creation was Jessica’s longtime friend and designer Giambattista Valli. The bride also wore a floor-length veil adorned with pearls from her grandmother’s wedding day tiara.

Jessica Biel’s wedding dress designer revealed

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on October 23rd, 2012

Since the news that Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake wed in Italy this weekend, most of us have been dying to know what the bride wore. Well the secret is out. But sadly, the photos aren’t…

The Hollywood actress is said to have walked down the aisle in a non-traditional white wedding dress that had hints of pink. The designer? Roman-based Giambattista Valli. Well if the photos above are anything to go by, Jessica will have looked stunning whatever she wore.

Valli is also understood to have created the bridesmaids gowns and the outfit for Jessica’s mother.

Meanwhile the groom is said to have worn a suit by Tom Ford. Great choice Justin!

The couple tied the knot in front of 150 family members and friends in Puglia, Southern Italy.

Ah I do like Grace Woodward. And not just because she’s replied to my @ tweets – twice!

Grace married her beau last weekend in Italy, and was so filled with happiness that she shared snapshots of her wedding day with the world through Twitter. No ‘I’m selling my wedding photos to the publication that will pay the most’ there.

Wearing a Julian MacDonald gown – her fellow Britain & Ireland’s Next Top Model judge – Grace was an absolutely stunning bride.

Congratulations! Oh and loving the manicure!!

Well wonder no further!
