‘The Saturdays’ popstar Frankie Sandford recently became engaged to Brighton and Hove footballer Wayne Bridge. Frankie follows in the footsteps of fellow bandmates Una Healey, who married England rugby player Ben Foden in June 2012, and Rochelle Humes, who married a fellow popstar: JLS band member Marvin Humes in July 2012.
Frankie and Wayne Bridge have been together since 2010, although Frankie initially thought she would never get engaged as she was convinced all the media interest in her love life would put her now fiancé off the idea of proposing to her. Fortunately she was proven wrong, and revealed all the details of the proposal to the Capital FM breakfast show.
In what can only be described as a ‘barking mad’ proposal, Frankie’s two dogs, Percy and Pixie, had been dressed up by Wayne Bridge in adorable bridge and groom outfits, with Pixie wearing the ring around a ribbon on her collar. Kudos to Wayne Bridge for a unique proposal! Even if Frankie admitted that she thought others would think it was ‘a bit of a weird proposal.’ Let’s hope it’s not just puppy love for Frankie and her beau.
Frankie even shared her excitement on Twitter and Instagram, posting a picture with her husband to be, showing off her engagement ring with the caption ‘Guess What.’
Now all that’s left is for Frankie to plan her big day! With Una’s big day being held at the luxurious Kilshane House in Ireland (top) and Rochelle’s being held in the historic country house, Blenheim palace, (bottom) she certainly has inspiration and expert advice from her married bandmates.
Frankie’s wedding is surely going to be a beautiful affair, and who knows, maybe the rest of The Saturdays will provide the wedding reception entertainment, and here’s a video of one of their catchy songs, ‘Ego.’
We could certainly think of a few songs by The Saturdays to do a music wedding video to.Leave a comment
Todays blog was very enjoyable as we looooove films (fact) here at MWV HQ.
Our ideas and inspirations have been inspired by hours and hours of watching films.
This week I decided to let you in to my top ten ‘best wedding moments’ in film.
You may or may not agree with me on the list and I would love you to comment on the bottom with your thoughts.
No.10 The Graduate (1967)
This is a wonderful wedding scene with a great twist as Dustin Hoffman and Anne Bancroft run away in to the sunset. I think a lot of grooms have a worrying thought about something like this happening during the pregnant pause after the priest has said: ‘If anyone knows of any reason…’
9. Waynes World 2 (1993)
How many of you were thinking of this scene when watching the scene above? A great spoof – a real ‘laugh out loud’ wedding moment.
8. My Best Friends Wedding (1997)
I must admit to being a lousy romantic, but this final scene in My Best Friend’s wedding makes me wish I was a better one. George (Rupert Everett) is waxing lyrical on the phone to Julianne (Julia Roberts) and his banter is gentle, warm and witty. I don’t know how long it’d be before I cracked to make a joke about the size of the mobiles…
7. Beetlejuice (1988)
This is one of the most eye-catching and creative wedding scenes of modern times. Stars like Michael Keaton, Winona Ryder, Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis all in one scene together creates wonderful, surreal feel. And how brides would love to be able to get in to their wedding dress as easy as that, eh?! “Daylight come and me wanna go home!”
6. Love Actually (2003)
Even being an unromantic male (see above) I love the idea of this wedding day surprise. Fantastic tune and great singing (although I would have preferred the garage classic Forgive Me by Lynden David Hall).
5. The Freaks (1932)
Although this film is not seen as particularly PC these days, I just wanna say one thing: How great would it be to film this wedding as a Music Wedding Video?What a fantastic, fun yet uneasy scene to watch. A great mix between the mad and the brilliant!
Priests, oh crazy priests! It’s soooooo uncool to get your partner’s name wrong at the altar, yet it’s sooooo funny if the priest does it. Probably the funniest British wedding scene in history, brilliantly played by Rowan Atkinson and obviously starring Hugh errrrrrr Grant.
3. Father of The Bride (1991)
Brilliant monologue played out by the brilliant Steve Martin. After having a baby girl recently, this resonates deeper with me now than before. I can imagine it also does with a huge number of fathers out there on their daughter’s big day (no matter how tough they are!).
2. Bridesmaids (2011)
A contemporary comedy wedding film that I found funny in parts. I quite like this scene because it shows that it is not just the lads that can make complete fools of themselves at weddings. Woohoo!
1. Wedding Crashers (2005)
Excellent montage scene capturing the fun, frolics and feeling of numerous weddings. I could have easily picked out a number of scenes but was struggling to keep it clean with potty mouthed Vince Vaughn andOwen Wilson involved. If you haven’t watched the movie, it’s a must see and my favourite wedding film.
I hope you have enjoyed my list and I look forward to hearing your favourites.

BOOM BOOM BOOM, LET ME HEAR YOU SAY WAYOOOO!
The Outhere Brothers are probably not going to make the shortlist for your choice of first dance, but could it slot in anywhere else?
This week we wanted to ponder a question that almost all couples have/will ponder during their preparation for their big day, what songs should we have for our wedding?
Wedding songs are hugely important to your day and set the tone and atmosphere of the event. They need to reflect your feelings for one another, appeal to your likes and dislikes and, just as importantly, appeal to the audience; both young and old.
At MWV HQ, we had a debate and, with our diverse taste in music, came up with some options to help couples decide on the apt tunes for their day.
There are many times of the day when a song can be appropriate: wedding dinner , ceremony, party songs, father/daughter dance and last dance.
This is without: bouquet throwing songs, garter tossing songs and (I can imagine a bit of Kenny G is high up this list) honeymoon night songs.
We have chosen our top contemporary beats and some traditional ballads for first dances, hopefully these will quench your thirst for musical satisfaction (although it goes without saying Etta James ‘At Last’, standard 🙂
CLASSIC WEDDING SONGS
ALTERNATIVE WEDDING SONGS
Scatman John – Scatman (just checking you’re still with us, although could be interesting)
A lot of people will be having Bruno Mars ‘Marry You’ and Dixie Cup’s classic ‘Going To The Chapel’ and we don’t blame them, but wouldn’t it make a welcome change to hear the rocking Black Sabbath blasting out ‘Heaven And Hell’ as the bride walks down the aisle?
What songs were a must-play at your wedding? Were there any tunes that you forbid your DJ from playing?
Russell Brand divorces Katy Perry because ‘he missed single life’
Not so much 7 year itch, more of a 7 week itch.. I bet Russell Brand’s had longer itches he’s had STD doctors prescribe antibiotics for..
I hear Katy perry wrote ‘firework’ about Russell. Ironically fireworks hang around longer!
And then there’s Alex Reid (better known as Jordan’s transvestite ex) marrying Chantelle Houghton (better known as, er, pass).
These two married after ‘an instant connection’ AKA a phone call between their agents. Cynical? What me? Yeah.
Then there’s the flip side; Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas.. He’s not just twice her age, he’s twice her age in dog years; she’ll have to cut his foot off and count the rings to calculate his true age.
But against all of the odds those two are one of the strongest couples in Hollywood and I applaud that.
So I suppose what I’m trying to say is around all the cynicism, PR spin and opportunist sham marriages I believe not all celeb marriages are a ploy.
Love can exist and remain strong even between two ‘celebrity’ A listers ‘Til death do they part’.
Unless Angelina Jolie pouts her erotic lips in the husband’s direction. Then they’re doomed.
Except Michael Douglas. His vision’s not what it was..
