Stepping Down The Aisle

by | 21st, August 2002

‘WE’RE in familiar territory in this week’s Hello!, where an obscure singer has just got married in a ”fairytale wedding”. These are not the nuptials of Kym Marsh and Jack Ryder (see OK!), but of Faye Tozer and Jesper Irn.

In this fairytale, Faye plays the ugly sister

”Who?” we hear you ask. Faye is formerly of the band Steps, while Jesper is her long-term Danish lover. And, as Hello! assures us, ”It was never going to be an ordinary wedding, even by celebrity standards”.

After all, it’s not every celebrity who gets hitched in a dress apparently constructed from slaughtered swans, or displays such an all-encompassing lack of taste when it comes to celebrating their special day.

Rather using the words tasteless and pretentious, Hello! prefers to describe the proceedings as ”spectacular and unashamedly over-the-top”.

The event had a ”distressed fairytale” theme – not a reference to orphaned children and sexually suspect dwarves on the bride’s side, but ”a whimsical, romantic wedding with an ironic modern twist”.

”Think pre-Raphaelite and Gainsborough with some Jane Austen and a stately home thrown in,” suggests Hello!.

We have another suggestion – but we’ll save that until after the kiddies have gone to bed.
