Wedding Bells: Joe Cole and Carly Zucker
Joe proposed to Carly at their mansion in Surrey on Friday, and they celebrated Sunday in London.
Let’s break down the deets, shall we?
Estimated Ring Value: £50,000
Length of relationship: Two years
Amount of belly tops worn by Carly in those two years: several thousand
Engagement: after a meal at the Ivy in London, but before playing Oasis on the stereo in celebration. We have to say the Oasis thing would almost make us give back the ring. Almost.
First to hear the news: the two bulldogs the couple share. We’d like to know who reported that inane, trite bit of information in the name of looking “cute” to the tabloids.
Length of engagement: said to be at least six months, with the wedding happening at the end of next year’s season.
Afters: At Brinkley’s bar in Chelsea, where Carly shed a few tears over the realisation at never having to work again, and being married to Joe C for the rest of her life. Celebrations then moved on to Paper in Regent Street where they hooked up with Jermain Defoe who had been having his own engagement party in Hatfield but obviously got bored and decided to hit the town instead.
Excitement level: We’re at zzzz, but may elevate the status of this news to a mildly interested when Carly starts wedding dress shopping.
