Mr. & Mrs: The Coles

The wedding season continues to roll along in full-length satin and champagne toast mode, and we couldn’t be more pleased.
This weekend, Chelsea’s Joe Cole took his long-time gal Carly Zucker down the aisle, getting married at the Royal Hospital Chelsea.
A range of footballers were on the scene – John and Toni Terry, the oft-misbehaved Wayne Bridge with wifey Vanessa, Scott Sinclair and Michael and Lisa Carrick.
After much anticipation about whether Frank Lampard and Elen Rives would attend (with the tabloids speculating it would be a mutli-faceted fiesta of awkward), we’ve yet to get anything 100% confirmed, and have not seen photos of either in attendance. Update on that to follow.
If you’re looking for photos of the wedding, you’ll have to be patient and wait for the £2 million Hello! magazine spread.
The Coles weren’t taking any chances and had guard dogs on patrol outside the grounds to make sure no one was able to scam a sneaky shot of the ceremony, or much more importantly, the Oscar de la Renta dress. From what we can see on the cover shot – it seems a demure choice, all things considered. We’re glad Carly kept it simple with her hair.
The morning after the night before the newlyweds attended a planned breakfast with friends and family in the garden at the seriously minimal-chic Hempel Hotel.
Seems an odd option to take for post-wedding scheduling. Surely the morning after getting married to a footballer should be spent laughing like a hyena everytime you glance at your ring and speed-ordering items from the Harrods website?
Oops. We should have said cuddling up to your new hubby and basking in the glow of your love, planning a new future together, shouldn’t we? That too.
Finally, let’s talk fashion. We asked our twitter followers for their take on Toni Terry’s dress with votes being split on success level.
For those that recall Toni’s wedding dress (dubbed, “uterus, internal”), this is similarly inspired. Kudos to her for the foxy bod and killer shoes though.
A huge congratulations to Carly and Joe, we wish you many happy years together!
