Jade Goody's fairytale wedding
Jade Goody is determined to have a fairytale wedding to Jack Tweed this weekend, and has vowed to walk down the aisle.
Jade Goody is determined to have her dream wedding to Jack Tweed this weekend.
Jade - who was last week told her cervical cancer has become terminal and she has just weeks to live - is determined to defy her current condition and have a church wedding on Sunday (22.02.09).
Jade, currently at the Royal Marsden hospital in London, told Britain's Sun newspaper: "I am going to die in this hospital, so I don't want to get married here. Wherever we tie the knot, I'm determined to walk down that aisle.
"I've lost my balance and the doctors aren't sure if it's a sign that the cancer has spread to the brain or if it's just weakness.
"But I'm hoping I will have the strength to walk on my big day. It would be so cruel to be robbed of that one last thing as well."
Although the venue for the wedding has not been confirmed, Elton John has offered the former 'Big Brother' star and Jack his £20 million mansion in Windsor. Jade has herself said they are considering the Down Hall country House in Hertfordshire.
She added: "I've already been busy planning our dream day. I'm going to have a Bentley drive me to the ceremony and a helicopter to fly us to the reception."
Jade, 27, left her bed in a wheelchair on Sunday (15.02.09), just two days after being given the news her cancer had become terminal, with fiancé Jack. He had proposed the previous day (14.20.09) but the couple made a tearful exchange of rings before the river Thames.
Jade and Jack, 21, also went shopping for a wedding dress, picking out a £3,500 gown from department store Harrods, which store owner Mohammed Al Fayed donated. Jack and Jade's two sons - Freddie, four and Bobby, five - were fitted with suits from a nearby Armani store.
Praising her new husband, Jade said: "Jack's been amazing and now I'm going to marry my knight in shining armour.
"I will be so proud to call Jack my husband. He's handling it all much better than I expected to. I want to be his wife more than anything."
Messages of support for Jade have flooded in, with a number of celebrities including Jonathan Ross, Simon Cowell and Dale Winton passing on their well wishes.
Jade is also hoping to christen her sons and plan her funeral before she succumbs to cancer.
She has also vowed to keep giving interviews for as long as possible and wants to sell pictures of her wedding to a magazine in order to raise money to put into a trust fund for her sons.
