Cheryl Tweedy, Ashley Cole's UK Wedding

July 2006 -- On July 15, 2006, the sound of horses hooves heralded the arrival of Cheryl Tweedy as a white carriage bearing the Girls Aloud member made its way to the Holy Trinity Church on the 2,500-acre Wrotham Park estate. Inside the house of worship, seven bridesmaids in vivid pink silk dresses strolled down the aisle ahead of the singer, who made a dramatic entrance in a Roberto Cavalli cream silk and lace creation. The facets of the gown's Swarovski crystals accents sparkled with a brilliance to rival that of the bride's $87,000 square-cut diamond engagement ring as the bride walked toward soccer star Ashley Cole, who stood at the altar in a silver suit offset with a white tie.

During the half hour ceremony, the joyful refrains of "Oh Happy Day," "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" and "Amazed" echoed in the early 19th century chapel, which was adorned with arrangements created by Simon J. Lycett, the floral designer responsible for the botanical beauty seen in the Hugh Grant comedy "Four Weddings and A Funeral."

At six P.M., 150 guests, including the bride's band mates Nadine Coyle, Sarah Harding, Kimberley Walsh and Nicola Roberts, gathered beneath a marquee erected on the lawn by the Wrotham Park mansion, (which movie buffs will recognize from the Academy Award-nominated drama "Gosford
Park"). They sampled slices of a wedding cake concocted by Little Venice Cake Company (the creator of Pierce Brosnan and Keely Shaye Smith's reception confection) during post-nuptial festivities catered by Rhubarb Food Design, who prepared the feast served at the wedding of Prince Edward and Sophie Rhys-Jones.
