Not COleen And Wayne’s Wedding II

elisabetta_gregoraci_.jpg“IT was the wedding that all Italy has been waiting for,” coos Hello!.

The curries and chipped potatoes bathed in hot oil coating had been ordered and Naples was ready to welcome Wayne and Coleen.

But further north in Rome was where Hello! tells its readers the real wedding action was to be had.

To the Santo Spirito in Sassia church, which Hello! tells us is “just a stone’s throw from, St Peter’s Basilica”. Armed with handful of confetti and pebbles Anorak looks on as billionaire Flavio Briatore, 58, marries 28-year-old “homegrown model and TV favourite” Elisabetta Gregoraci.

“She has got her feet on the ground,” says the bride’s father Mario, and we, walking on air, nod.

Says the bride: “I feel like I’m in a fairytale and I haven’t woken up.” And we look for the prince to plant a kiss on her ruby lips.

“We wanted to make her look like a princess marrying her prince,” says Eva Cavalli of the dress with its echoes of the outfit made for Diana’s wedding to Charles. “The dress took 15 people 500 hours to make. It was a big job but it was done with a big heart.”

In the crowd are England mange Fabio Crapello, Indian steel magnate Lakshmi Mettal and Itlay’s prime-minister du jour Silvio Berlusconi Tutti-Fruitti.

Vows made and time for a “seasonal vegetable risotto and sea bass escalope with green bean” and salmon tartar.

Cue the music and Simon Le Bon yells “Let’s Get Serious”. And everyone falls about laughing…
