Simon Cowell's surreal wedding
Simon Cowell's wedding will have a Salvador Dali-theme with melting clocks, angel and demon candle works and waiters dressed in oriental outfits, according to his ex-girlfriend Sinitta
Simon Cowell is having a Salvador Dali-themed wedding.
The music mogul, who is set to marry make-up artist Mezhgan Hussainy in early September, will have a setting inspired by the revered Spanish surrealist painter, according to his ex-girlfriend Sinitta.
She said: "What Simon wants, Simon gets. The theme of the wedding is Miracles Do Happen - Simon getting married just goes to prove it.
"It will be a pretty surreal do - Salvador Dali-inspired. There'll be angels and all sorts everywhere.
"I can't believe the big man is actually doing it, but I am convinced he's going to, even though it's going against everything he has ever said. It's beautiful, it really is."
The 'So Macho' singer has put forward suggestions for decor at the wedding, including Dali's famous melting clocks from his best-known work 'The Persistence of Memory'.
Other plans include having waiters in oriental clothes and melting angel and demon candle works at the entrance to the venue - which has yet to be confirmed.
However, one thing Sinitta is keen for 50-year-old Simon and his fiancee Mezhgan to avoid is having their wedding on September 11th because of its association with the terrorist attacks in New York in 2001.
She told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I don't like that date, it has horrible associations. If he has it then it will be as if the wedding is going to be the next disaster, and that's not very nice is it?"
