Real Madrid star Gareth Bale is set to move his wedding date to Emma Rhys-Jones forward.
The player pushed changed the wedding plans after the father of his bride was jailed in the United States for six years.
Since his fiancée’s dad Martin Rhys-Jones could leave jail early, Bale and Emma are reportedly now planning a lavish ceremony during the summer. The news is in contrast to the backdrop that members of the family are targeted by drugs gang for transactions gone bad.
The plans features tight security nonetheless as Martin would give his daughter away to Bale in a church.
“Emma and Gareth are thrilled that Martin should be coming out early. They have been told he is being released in June provided he doesn’t misbehave,” a source close to the family said.
The source added that the wedding would be a sort of get-together for the whole family but that the security would be top notch.
“He’s [Martin] never met some of his grandchildren – and it will be quite a party when they all get together. They have told family and close friends they are planning the big day.
“Nothing will be left to chance, so it will be a really special day for Emma. But there will also be really heavy security because of what has been going on – so Gareth won’t be taking any chances,” the source added.
Martin was jailed for six years for his involvement in a multimillion-pound shares scam. He already spent four years and three months in custody in Spain and the United States, hence him getting out early. He has a lot of catching up as Emma’s sister has had a baby aside Emma’s two children.
The wedding is poised to hold at The Vale of Glamorgan.
