Ronnie Wood's dwarf wedding

Ronnie Wood is hiring dwarves to perform at his daughter's wedding.

The Rolling Stones guitarist wants a gang of cheeky diminutive people to play tricks on unsuspecting guests at 29-year-old daughter Leah's wedding on June 21.

Wedding planners are looking for male and female dwarves, under four feet high, to dress as "mischievous, giggling little imps".

A source is quoted by Britain's The Sun newspaper as saying: "The idea is to have little people in costume popping up. They're working on a theme based on the character of Puck - the cheeky sprite from Shakespeare's 'Midsummer Night's Dream'."

Some of the stunts may involve the performers stealing hats and leaping out of bushes. Any dwarves appearing will have to sign confidentiality agreements to stop them giving away star guests' secrets.

Singer-and-model Leah will marry Jack McDonald, a TV news producer, at Ronnie's stately residence in Surrey. Jack proposed during a family holiday to Kenya last year.

The Rolling Stones will play at the wedding, which will have a star-studded guest list, including supermodel Kate Moss and Stones frontman Sir Mick Jagger's daughter Lizzie.

Speaking of his dwarf plans, Ronnie coyly said: "It's one of the ideas that's been discussed. We want to keep a few surprises back for the guests."
