Michelle Keegan her fiancé Mark Wright have planned the "traditional" wedding of their dreams and she just cannot wait to tie the knot with the former 'TOWIE' star in front of their families
Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan will have a "fairytale" wedding.
The former 'The Only Way Is Essex' star and the 27-year-old actress - who got engaged in Dubai in 2013 - have planned the "traditional" big day of their dreams and can't wait to tie the knot in front of their families this summer.
Mark said: "We loved the idea of getting married abroad but for both of us it wouldn't have felt right. That's not like a real wedding in a church in the way our mums and dads got married and we want our families to be there.
"This day will be how we always dreamt and hoped it would be."
In a joint interview with the new issue of HELLO! magazine, Michelle added: "We are both traditional even in the way we got engaged with Mark asking my dad's permission. We have both got our fairytale."
The former 'Coronation Street' star - who will star in new BBC One drama 'Ordinary Lies' - intends to take Mark's name, but will continue to use her own surname for her career.
She said: "We will be Mr. and Mrs. Wright. I may keep my name Keegan for work but for everything else in my life I will be Michelle Wright."
The couple are adamant planning for the nuptials couldn't have gone smoother as the "best friends" have been able to agree on all aspects of their big day.
The only detail Michelle is yet to finalise is her dress, a bespoke creation inspired by other wedding gowns including the custom made Oscar de la Renta gown which Amal Alamuddin wore when she married George Clooney last year.
She said: "She (Amal) looked amazing, gorgeous. That was the one that stood out for me. I couldn't find one that I really liked so instead I took inspiration from various aspects of dresses I loved and it's been made for me. But I haven't tried it on yet. My fitting is this month."
