When is Emma Rhys-Jones’ and Gareth Bale’s wedding?
Emma and Gareth were set to get married in summer 2018 but the wedding has been postponed until 2019.
They decided to put their plans on hold due to an ongoing feud with Emma’s family.
But she banned him from the wedding after he moved in with a florist half his age, Alina Baranova.
Other members of her family including her aunt Jane Burns, 55, have been embroiled in a violent drugs feud.
The couple were set to tie the knot at the historic Vincigliata castle in Tuscany, where Theo Walcott – Gareth’s former Southampton team-mate – wed in 2014.
But they are now reportedly getting married on private island Tagomago, near Ibiza, as exclusively revealed by The Sun.
Bale will also splash out on ex-SAS soldiers to ensure his party are kept safe with any uninvited guests having no chance of getting ashore.
