Union J’s Jaymi Hensley has spoke about wanting to marry his fiancé Olly Marmon in December in an over-the-top wedding. The couple, who got engaged in Rome in 2010 after the boyband star whisked the hairdresser off on a romantic holiday where he got down on one knee and proposed, had originally decided on a date in 2015 but they decided to bring the wedding forward.
Jaymi said: “I’m getting married in December. It’s going to be a big day. We’ve been wanting to do it for a long time and are now in the position to do it. We will have been together five-and-a- half years when we get married. We’ve got the next day off and that’s probably all. Management have been trying to say the next tour is in December so maybe we’ll get married during the interval.”
The other boys in the band – Josh Cuthbert, JJ Hamblett and George Shelley – will of course be there to see their bandmate and friend tie the knot with his soulmate.
JJ said: “George is wearing a dress and Josh will be there too.”
Jaymi joked: “Jessie J is coming and Labrinth too. Stevie Wonder, Elton John, actually I’m not sure I’ve got the budget. Beyonce is marrying me. She has been ordained just for it. You never know. Katie Price might sing A Whole New World and Rylan might sing The Spice Girls. It’s not that far from the reality.”
And it’s so sweet that their dog little Belle and Hamblett’s dog with his girlfriend Caterina Lopez little Lola were mentioned as a prime feature at the wedding.
Jaymi said of the dogs: “We have got dogs. I want JJ’s dog Lola and my dog Belle to run up with the ring box. Lola is a pug and mine is a teacup Maltese terrier.”
He also revealed idea for doves on the day.
“I wanted doves too but maybe George and Josh can be the doves and come in on a wire.”
He also said,
“It’s going to be cool. I’ll have 10 bridesmaids, four page boys and Princeton, JJ’s one-month-old son, is one of them. The only thing I’m not doing is wearing a white suit.”
JJ joked the wedding might be on December 25th. He said: “Christmas Day, he’s having it at the local guild hall or British Legion club.”
“When Jaymi organises something he worries about it but I hope he enjoys it and won’t panic.”
Olly previously tweeted on his Twitter page on the 21st of December 2013: “Looks like Jolly might be bringing the wedding forward so excited!!! Hopefully next Christmas!! :)) x”
Jaymi also previously revealed that his younger brother Aaron would be his best man on the day.
I’m kind of thinking that it would be sweet if they got married on the 24th of December – Christmas Eve – because they met on the 24th, their first home that they lived in together was 24, both their birthdays were the 24th (Jaymi is February and Olly April) and they were born in the second and the fourth month. Jaymi got a tattoo of 24 because it is so special and for their last anniversary they ended up at table 24 when they went out together to celebrate. Jaymi tweeted a pic of the table with the number. So I think that it would be a beautiful day for them to marry because it is a special number to them both with huge significance to them both in their relationship.
All the best lads from an Irish Jcat with all the wedding plans and on the day. I hope all goes amazing for you both! :-)
