This week's copy of HELLO! magazine features a world exclusive on the wedding of Chelsea footballer Joe Cole and his new wife Carly Zucker
The Royal Hospital in Chelsea was the setting for the romantic wedding of football star Joe Cole and his long-term love Carly Zucker. On Saturday the sportsman and his beautiful fiancée tied the knot in a special ceremony attended by a number of famous faces, and HELLO! was there to exclusively capture their big day.
"I play for Chelsea, we live in Chelsea – so it made sense to get married here," said the 27-year-old winger who wed I'm A Celebrity... star Carly, 25, in the 17th Century chapel at the Royal Hospital before celebrating at a reception on the site of the famous flower show.
This week's issue of the magazine – number 1078 – features world-exclusive pictures of the happy couple exchanging their vows and snaps from the party afterwards, attended by stars including fellow footballer John Terry and his wife Toni, and EastEnders actress Kara Tointon.
"Even I was surprised by how unbelievably stunning Carly looked," Joe confides of his new wife, who chose a classic figure-hugging Oscar de la Renta wedding gown complete with a floor-length veil. "She was more beautiful than I have ever seen her."
And there is even more insider info in next week's magazine, which will include additional pictures from the couple's reception party and details of the funny speeches, the cutting of the cake and the all important first dance.
Meanwhile, the most recent copy of HELLO! - on sale from Tuesday June 23 – also features full coverage of all the stars at Royal Ascot, and an interview with Olivia Newton John and her daughter Chloe, who reveal why they have plenty to smile about.
