Wedding bells are about to start ringing for Michelle Keegan and Mark Wright, who are preparing to tie the knot this weekend.

The former Coronation Street actress and The Only Way Is Essex star will become husband and wife at Hengrave Hall in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk over the Bank Holiday weekend.

But groom-to-be Mark hinted that he hadn’t managed to get in an early night ahead of the big day when he tweeted about his plans to watch a boxing match.

 

With bridesmaids including Mark’s sisters Jessica and Natalya, Michelle’s stepsister Nichola, her cousins Gemma, Katy and Lauren, and her best friend Becky Hatch, plus James ‘Arg’ Argent, Lydia Bright and Brooke Vincent expected as guests, it looks sent to be a star-studded affair.

But according to the Daily Mirror, wedding guests will be faced with the stress of getting two outfits for the celebrations, as they apparently have been asked to bring their best Downton Abbey-style finery to wear to breakfast the next day for a photoshoot outside the posh venue which will be part of their magazine deal coverage.

Michelle has been spotted making last-minute preparations in Manchester, where she showed off what looked like a fresh tan while shopping, and later joined Mark and her dad for lunch.

The couple have been celebrating their upcoming nuptials in recent weeks with a string of hen and stag dos, which saw Michelle, 27, take a group of friends away to Dubai where her fiance proposed to her, while Mark, 28, and his pals hit Las Vegas for their party.

 

Michelle Instagrammed a photo from her Dubai hen party.

Michelle and Mark announced their engagement in September 2013, nine months after they started dating. Michelle had previously been engaged to The Wanted singer Max George, while Mark had planned to marry his former Towie co-star Lauren Goodger.
