Rooney’s gal eyes Italian castle weddingNovember 14th, 2007 - 10:18 am ICT by admin
She flew her wedding planner and mum Colette on a private jet to tour stunning Castello Brown in Portofino, near Genoa. The 16th Century fortress boasts panoramic views of the Riviera - plus a banquet hall and rambling gardens. It also has top-notch security since all guests have to make a steep five-minute walk up a mountainside to enter its gates.
Twenty-one-year-old Coleen is expected to wed Rooney next year. They have kept their plans strictly under wraps and only close family were told of the trip yesterday, The Sun reported.
Wayne, 22, was unable to make the journey due to Manchester United’s Champions League clash with Dynamo Kiev at Old Trafford on Wednesday night.
Coleen, however, spent the morning chatting excitedly into her mobile before sitting down for her three course, two-hour lunch with wine. She finally flew back to Manchester at 6 p.m. and couldn’t wait to tell Wayne about the castle.
Her wedding planner is from the company which organised her 21st birthday bash last April - and Wayne’s 18th birthday party.
Coleen and Wayne began dating at 16 and have been engaged since 2003, when the footballer proposed at a petrol station.
Their wedding was supposed to fit in with the Euro 2008 championships. But England’s likely failure to qualify means they could marry any time next summer.
They are believed to have signed a 1.5 million pound magazine deal for the wedding rights. (ANI)
