Girls Aloud singer Cheryl Tweedy married footballer Ashley Cole at a chapel at a Hertfordshire stately home at the weekend.

The couple successfully managed to distract the media by arranging for staff at two different venues to confirm that each setting was the wedding location.

But the location of the nuptials was eventually leaked when a bystander spotted Tweedy outside the Holy Trinity Chapel at Wrotham Park in Barnet, Hertfordshire, draped in a sheet, with only her silver shoes on show.

Her fiancé Cole was later seen in the vicinity of the chapel, wearing a silver suit.

According to reports, the couple signed an exclusive deal, reported to be worth £1m, with OK! magazine for the wedding photos.
