Taylor Made

by | 26th, July 2004

‘OF all the fascinating things we have learnt about Joanna Taylor over the past few years, the most fascinating of all is surely that her real surname is Clark.

And the bride wore white

Or at least it used to be Clark because it is now Murphy after the 26-year-old actress tied the knot with Liverpool footballer Danny Murphy in Barbados.

Having tantalised us with this nugget of information, OK! gives us no reason why the former Hollyoaks star should have changed her name.

And why, having decided to change from Clark, she should have chosen something as humdrum as Taylor.

But it does tell us everything we could have wanted to know about the former Hot Stars columnist’s nuptials…and so, so much more besides.

For instance, we learn that the bride’s make-up was done using her favourite Lancome products, and she accessorised with a simple pearl necklace and bracelet set (with pearl earrings by Surrey-based jeweller Bruce Smith).

We now know that the bridesmaids, like the bride, wore a spritz of Vera Wang perfume and matching silver open-toed strappy stilettos by LK Bennett.

And we can tell you that Danny wore a “trendy” beige Louis Vuitton suit and baby blue shirt, while best man Steve Roberts – known as Robbo – wore a “trendy” sandy-coloured linen suit.

This is all fascinating information, as we would expect from OK!’s “world exclusive” of the “paradise” wedding.

But it is the speeches that we enjoy most at any wedding – and this was no exception.

We hear that Joanna’s father Peter (Clark) made the guests laugh “with a few football innuendos about ball skills and Danny lasting 90 minutes”.

And, says OK!, best man Robbo’s speech was “equally funny”. You can probably still hear them chortling in the Caribbean even now…’
