UPDATE: Fearne Cotton engaged

Over the weekend, British music TV/radio host Fearne Cotton, 29, got engaged to her skater boyfriend of the past two years, Jesse Jenkins, Friday night - her 29th birthday. Cotton stepped out of the BBC Radio 1 studios on Monday with a diamond ring (among others) on her left hand.

Sources claim that Jenkins, 24, led Cotton, blindfolded, to London's Richmond Park, where he reportedly got down on one knee and proposed.

"Fearne was so touched at how Jesse did it - it was really romantic. It was a big shock for everyone but Fearne is ecstatic. It was the last thing that she was expecting but she didn't hesitate to say yes. She is so excited about being engaged that she hasn't even thought about the wedding - that will be something she thinks about later," says the source.

Cotton's rep confirmed the rumours late yesterday. It will be the first marriage for both.

The presenter has always spoken of her desire for marriage and family. "I've always been broody. Having a family of my own is really important, more than anything. I think that's what it's all about, isn't it? It's about finding a life partner who's your best friend. What's the point of doing great things at work if you don't have someone to share it with?"

Dave Annable and Odette Yustman will be married by the end of the year

Brothers & Sisters star Dave Annable will be married to actress Odette Yustman before the end of the year, the actress tells Us Magazine. She also reveals that she's already found her dress.

"I have my dress. Its a beautiful Monique Lhuillier and it was the first dress I tried on," she says. "As for the rest, we're keeping everything hush hush, but it's coming. I'll be married by the end of the year."

Her comment that, "I don't think we'll get married on a beach. It'll just be a big party, low-key -- somewhere outside, probably," sounds like the wedding - likely extravagant to satisfy large families - isn't set in stone just yet, but could also be a tactic to throw the media off their scent.

The couple, who will both be walking down the aisle for the first time, were engaged in February.

Marriage made Christina Aguilera's relationship stronger

This November, Christina Aguilera will celebrate five years of marriage with her music exec hubby, Jordan Bratman, and in the latest issue of Cosmopolitan UK the pop singer-turned actress tells how nothing much has changed for the couple since they started dating in 2002.

"Marriage unites you and makes you official, but it didn't change our relationship. All the things like wanting to work hard and play hard -- they were always important to us," she says. "We've been married for five years now, and I think the secret is in always keeping it interesting. You have to make time for yourselves."

Five years is a stretch for almost any Hollywood marriage, but Aguilera, who welcomed the couple's son, Max, in January 2008, tells Cosmo, "It's important to be open to growing together, and when the going gets tough, you have to see how you can make your relationship more special and how you can spend more quality time together. Everyone has rough patches, everybody grows and we all change. It's important to give each other room to grow and to accept them for who they are."

The couple were married at the Staglin Family Vineyard in Rutherford, California on November 19, 2005. The singer wore an elaborate Spanish-style Christian Lacroix gown for the Jewish nuptuals. She traded the dress for a satin mini for the reception, where 150 guests including Sharon Stone, Justin Timberlake and then-girlfriend Cameron Diaz, were treated to renditions of Aguilera's "Lady Marmalade" and "At Last." The three-day honeymoon followed at a small resort in the Napa Valley.

British actress Amanda Redman marries in English countryside

British actress Amanda Redman, star of the TV series New Tricks, was married on Saturday, September 4 to her boyfriend of 12 years. Damian Schnabel, at 13th Century Maunsel House in Taunton, Somerset.

Redman, 53, and 38-year-old Schnabel were married in front of 200 friends and family. Schnabel wore a blue suit, and Redman donned a halterneck gown by British designed Ritva Westenius. To prepare for the wedding day, Redman had been hitting the gym for two and a half hours five days a week, and had banned carbs and wine from her diet.

Guests including actors Ray Winstone, who did a reading at the ceremony, and Sheila Hancock, as well as New Tricks costars Dennis Waterman, Alun Armstong, and James Bolam, attended the outdoor ceremony and "boozy" reception, held on the manor grounds under a wood patio ("pegola").

Last week, Redman admitted that the wedding would be alcohol-friendly: "We are having a lot of booze and my horror would be to run out. We always hold parties at our house and we want people to have fun. I would be horrified if they stood there thinking they wanted to go home."

The bride's attendants were her two best friends, Freda and Liz, and her 23-year-old daughter daughter Emily Glenister - who sang for the couple at the reception to accompagny the first dance. Emily is Redman's daughter with first husband Robert Glenister, to whom she was married from 1984 to 1992.

Redman and Schnabel, a cell-phone designer, met in 199 and dated until 2003. They reunited in 2006 and earlier this year announced their engagement while on holiday last year.

In a recent interview with Good Housekeeping magazine, Redman said of the couple's 15-year age difference,
"I'm the one giving him a young outlook - he's like an old man. He's far more grown-up than me and that works brilliantly. To have someone who's more mature than me in every way apart from physically is marvellous, frankly."

Last month, Redman and 13 friends travelled to Brussels for a blue-themed hen's weekend.

Top Chef winner Harold Dieterle weds in Atlanta

After winning the first series of Bravo reality show Top Chef in 2006, Manhattan restaurant owner Harold Dieterle attended the annual Food + Wine Cooking Expo in Aspen, Colorado - one of his prizes for winning. It was there, at an event after party, that he met fellow foodie Meredith Davies. Together almost four years, they married Saturday, September 4 in Davies' hometown of Atlanta.

The ceremony took place at a downtown church, followed by a reception at the Capital City Club of Atlanta. Davies wore a Pnina Tornai gown for the ceremony, and Dieterle wore a white dinner jacket by Paul Stuart.

Though Top Chef judge Tom Colicchio couldn't attend due to filming commitments, fellow season one competitors Lee Anne Wong and Stephen Aspirinio were among the 175 guests who watched the couple share their first dance to Ray LaMontagne's "You Are the Best Thing," and who dined on a menu catered by the club. Dieterle stayed far from the kitchen for his wedding day - he told People he didn't even know what was going to be on the menu!

The newlyweds left today for an Italian honeymoon in Rome, Positano, and Sicily.

Scissor Sisters' Ana Matronic talks married life

Ana Matronic (real name Lynch), the only female in the dance rock band The Scissor Sisters, recently sat down to talk to the Daily Mail about the band's upcoming tour and also touched on being a newlywed - she married longtime boyfriend Seth Kirby in late April at New York City Hall.

Matronic recalls, "We got married because...OK, I should back up a little bit. Seth does lights and visuals for bands and he works with this man Josh White, who did the visuals at Woodstock. Josh has been married to his wife Alice for 32 years, and Josh and Seth had just done a gig and it came out that Seth and I weren’t officially married. Josh and Alice couldn’t believe it, because we had been referring to each other as husband and wife for years. Seth came home and said, 'God, I just got an earful from Josh and Alice,' and we were just talking about it over the next few days and then it was like, 'Yeah, yeah, we should do it, we should do it.' I was on the computer and I looked down and he was on his knees and he said, 'Will you marry me?' and I said yes and he said, 'Will you fill out the paperwork and we’ll go right now?' So we went to City Hall that day, got the paperwork, then waited six days and did it officially."

Witnesses at the City Hall ceremony were Josh White, Seth's sister Kate and roommate Joe. After the Scissor Sisters upcoming tour, the couple plans to have a party for friends and family and go on a honeymoon.

Asked what marriage means to her, Matronic said, "Marriage? It’s just better and deeper. It’s like the difference between dating someone and dating someone you’re in love with. It’s that next logical step."

She also sees children in the couple's future, saying, "I love the idea. There are a lot of idiots having children in the world these days, so we should probably put a good one out there!"

Katy Perry wants dual citizenship with marriage to Russell Brand

Promoting her latest album in Britain this past week, singer Katy Perry told Channel 4 that she would eventually like to get her dual citizenship once she marries British comedian Russell Brand.

“I love London and just being here. I’ve decided that when the day does come, I will become a dual citizen. Then I can just pass through Customs real quick. You’ve already kind of adopted me so maybe I don’t have to go through all the paperwork?”

As California preacher's daughter Katy assimilates into life with wild, raunchy Brand, she reveals that she recently dyed her black hair with streaks of claret and blue - the colours of Brand's beloved football team, West Ham United. She also expressed her disappointment that she can't get her West Ham official toaster to properly burn the team logo on her toast. “I can’t get the imprints on the toast, it’s so depressed."

Britney not marrying Jason Trawick

At least, not yet.

Despite checking out a wedding chapel on the grounds of Maui's Grand Wailea Resort, where she's currently on vacation with boyfriend Jason Trawick, and tearfully watching a wedding ceremony below her hotel balcony two days later, a source tells People that rumours that Britney Spears, 29, is considering marriage to 38-year-old Trawick, her former agent.

"They're really taking things day by day and really enjoying their time," says the source, though they did say that "of course" Spears and Trawick talk about the future. Trawick "really cares for her, deeply cares for the kids and loves her," says another source, referring to the stars sons Preston, 4, and Jayden, 3, with ex-husband Kevin Federline.

The couple became an item last year, and as their relationship grew the couple cut professional ties. Spears was previously married to Federline, and was wed for 55 hours to childhood friend Jason Alexander, whom she married over a whirlwind New Year's Eve in Las Vegas in 2004.

Actor Brian J. White marries in Beverly Hills

And hey, since it fits, before we get started, happy 90210!

On Saturday, August 28th, actor Brian J. White (of Stomp the Yard and The Wire fame) married his girlfriend Paula Da Silva, a marketing exec, in Beverly Hills. The wedding took place at All Saints Parish Church in the luxury zip code, with a reception that followed at The Foundry on Melrose Avenue, complete with a Polite in Public photobooth - a growing wedding trend among the rich and fabulous. Guests also dined on a wedding cake baked with layers of carrot, red velvet, and marble cake with Kahlua cream frosting.

Da Silva's strapless gown came from R. Mine Bridal.

Of his wedding day, White told that he loved sharing the day with everyone he loves in the world, and called himself "blessed" because he got to marry his best friend.

The couple were engaged in January while on vacation on St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands. Around that time, White posted the following passage on his Facebook page, calling it, "What falling in love with Paula Da Silva taught me."
“People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life. A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. A soul mates purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so out of control that you have to transform your life…” -Elizabeth Gilbert
Guests at the ceremony included actors Taraji P. Henson, Columbus Short and Tia Mowry, singers Dave Hollister and Esthero, and director Sylvain White. White once played in the NFL for the New England Patriots, and is the son of retired Boston Celtics star Jo Jo White.

This is the first marriage for both, who are off on a honeymoon in Barbados next week.

FIRST PHOTO: Jesse Csincsak and Ann Lueders

Bachelor stars Jesse Csincsak and Ann Lueders were married on Saturday at Las Vegas' Rumor Hotel, and Life & Style has published the first photo, showing Csincsak in a black suit and Lueders wearing a strapless gown by Oleg Cassini.

"I would never have thought last November when I met Ann that I'd be here marrying her here today," Csincsak told the mag of the day they met on a Bachelor reunion cruise. "Ann is the woman of my dreams. I just wanted her to have the special day she deserves."

Friends and family (there was 150 in attendance) dined on food created by celeb chef Vic Vegas, and ate red velvet Stefanie cupcakes for dessert. Gift bags were stocked with stuffings from sponsors, including Vivitar Cameras, Energy Muse Jewelry, Best Buy gift cards, and more.

The newlyweds are on honeymoon at a "secret location" - though we might expect that their honeymoon photo exclusives will be in next week's Life & Style. They expect son Noah in December.

(Yes, believe us, it pains us to have to include the inset cover of the mag in the shot with yet another ridic Brangelina headline. Leave Shiloh alone, she's a BABY.)

Brit Shameless star Tina Malone's gastric band success for wedding day

British actress Tina Malone, 47, a star of the comedy Shameless since 2005, was fitted with a gastric band to aid in her weight loss in March, and by her wedding day in Manchester, England on Saturday, August 28th she had lost over 60 lbs. It was the first time in years that Malone could fit into a size 14 (size 10 in North America).

A guest told the Manchester Evening News, “In her regal cream dress she literally looked half her age and looked tiny after losing all that weight, she really was the most beautiful bride. ”

Malone married personal trainer Paul Chase, 28, who at 19 years younger than Malone is the same age as her daughter, Danielle. They met in 2009 after Malone, at her heaviest, was evicted from the UK's Celebrity Big Brother.

Defending the age difference, Malone tells Closer magazine, "People had plenty to say about the age difference, but at the end of the day, love is love, isn’t it?"

Aussie actress Kate Richie planning small, intimate wedding

Australian actress Kate Richie and her former rugby league fiance Stuart Webb are planning to wed in a small, intimate ceremony later this year, and Richie spoke about her preparations in a recent issue of Aussie mag Woman's Day.

“I’d like to think I will be a bride who, at the end of the night, can say she’s spoken to everyone individually. I think that will be the advantage of it being small and intimate,” says Richie, modelling gowns for the magazine. She was recently spotted in Sydney shopping for a dress with her sister, Rebekah, and is keeping the basic wedding details - when, where, how - to herself, but calls the day her "dream wedding."

Says Richie, who has been working hard to tone up for her wedding day, "We’re concentrating on it being the day we want it to be.”

The couple were engaged on a European holiday together last September. It will be the first marriage for both.
