It's set to be the 2006 answer to the Price-Andre or Beckham-Adams weddings: A textbook example of the distance between aspirations for sophistication and the reality of tat. It is, of course, the Cheryl Tweedy-Ashley Cole wedding.

When you discover that pageboy outfits are being made for Tweedy's dog, you get an idea of what sort of event we're looking at here.

But it's still meant to be sophisticated, says "an insider":

"She wants it to be a smart and sophisticated affair. And Windsor Castle is an option for the reception."

Naturally, they can't mean the Castle where the Queen lives - can you imagine the phone call when they rang up and asked to use the Great Hall? - so we presume they must be planning a cold cuts buffet at the Camden pub.
