British songbird Lily Allen is planning a holiday wedding.
Allen, who suffered a miscarriage earlier this month, is planning to tie the knot with builder boyfriend Sam Cooper later this year, London’s Daily Mail dished on Sunday. Prior to the miscarriage, Sam and Lily hadn’t seriously thought about when they would marry, yaps a source, but in the wake of their personal tragedy the two found comfort in each other’s arms and are now planning their wedding. Lily, 25, was six months pregnant when she tragically lost the baby boy she and Sam had eagerly been awaiting. It was the second blow for the “Smile” singer; Lily lost another baby in 2008 when she was four months pregnant.
“Lily and Sam had loose plans to marry after the baby was born but nothing concrete was in motion,” a friend of the couple revealed to The Mail over the weekend. “Now they have decided they want to be man and wife as soon as possible. They realized through their grief that they absolutely adore one another and cannot live without each other.”
Allen wants the ceremony and the reception to be held at the luxurious English estate of her actor father Keith Allen.
“Lily is very close to her dad and she took him up on his offer of holding the wedding at his (home),” Lily’s loose-lipped pal added. “She loves his country pad and she and Sam feel it is absolutely right for them to marry there. They want to be together after what they’ve gone through and see becoming man and wife as the light at the end of the tunnel.”
