Mr. & Mrs: The Browns
They got married at Peckforton Castle in Cheshire this weekend, nearly a year after Wes’s team mate Wayne Rooney married Coleen McLoughlin. (Wayne and Col celebrated their one-year anniversary with family and then headed over to attend the Brown nuptials. They’ve since made their way to Barbados for a little R&R.)
No word yet on if – or when – photos from the wedding will be made public, but in the meantime, we can all live vicariously through this telling WAG-wedding detail:
During the ceremony Wes arranged for the new must have assessory – his rings to be delivered by an owl.Ollie, the barn owl, has been practising his swoop across the Great Hall of Peckforton Castle with Ollie’s handler, falconer Mike Roberts, insisting that the owl will not fly off with the jewellery.
Since when do large birds of prey have such a do-good conscience? This is a creature that can rotate it’s head all the way around and munches on rodents for goodness sake. A quick snatch and grab and Ollie could be the blingingest owl on the block, but perhaps he places little value in sparkly things. Weirdo.
Regardless of the owl-ring trend, we’re excited to see another baller take their long-term to the altar. Congratulations and all the best for the future!
