‘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.
