Saturdays' Rochelle and JLS star Marvin marry
Saturdays singer Rochelle Wiseman (opens in new tab) has described the 'overwhelming' moment she married JLS star Marvin Humes at a celebrity-studded showbiz wedding. The couple were joined at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire by their bandmates and other big names including Tulisa Contostavlos and Harry Styles from One Direction. Rochelle told Hello! magazine she was overcome with emotion on her big day. She said: "It just hit me, what we were saying to each other. It was all so overwhelming, I couldn't stop myself from crying. I looked at Marvin and his eyes were glassy. I kept thinking he might go too, but he held it down." Members of JLS and The Saturdays were joined on stage at the party by guests including Olly Murs and Alexandra Burke to perform some of the couple's favourite songs. Other guests at the wedding, which had a black and white dress code, included Girls Aloud's Nicola Roberts. Marvin said he had to resist the temptation to sneak a peek at his new bride as she walked up the aisle in a Vera Wang gown before being given away by former England footballer Paul Ince. He said: "When the music started up and I knew Rochelle had arrived, I was desperate to turn around and look at her. We hadn't spoken all day and had spent the previous night apart. I'd missed her and I couldn't wait to see her. "But so many people had said to me that I shouldn't turn around - that it was unlucky. "Then, when I looked to my left and she was there, oh man, she looked unbelievable; more beautiful than I've ever seen her look. Her face, her smile, the dress, everything ... She was absolutely stunning."
