England football captain John Terry yesterday lost his legal battle to keep allegations about his private life secret after a judge ruled that his claim for a gagging order had more to do with protecting lucrative sponsorship deals than his family's privacy.
In a spectacular own goal the Chelsea star not only failed to stop the publication of salacious claims concerning a relationship with a former team-mate's girlfriend but also has to pay £20,000 legal costs to a Sunday newspaper.
And while all eyes were on the bride, of course, they did have some rather fabulous, and stylish guests.
Footballer John Terry's wife, Toni was one of the best dressed and what else would we expect from this high status WAG?
Terry, 29, has been dogged by tabloid reports of affairs for years, and was reported to have cheated on his girlfriend, and later wife, Toni Poole with at least eight women before they married in 2007.
In a statement submitted to the court Terry said that he had not told one of the "interested persons" in the case, believed to be his wife, about the relationship.
She almost stole the show in this gorgeous dress by Alexander Mc Queen and we think it was the perfect choice for a guest at a winter wedding.
The nude and black colourway is toned down and not too showy and those pleated layers are just so pretty and romantic.
He asked the judge that this should be taken into consideration when assessing the rights of his family to a private life under the Human Rights Act.
But Mr Tugendhat rejected the footballer's contention that this meant she did not know about the affair.
The judge's comments will have also added to his woes.
