Fifi Geldof to marry where her sister and mother's funerals were held

Fifi Geldof is to reportedly marry in the same church where the funerals of her sister Peaches and mother Paula Yates were held.

The 33-year-old daughter of Bob Geldof will tie the knot with Andrew Robertson at St Mary Magdalene and St Lawrence Church near Faversham in Kent.

Bob, 64, reportedly lives next door to the church where the wedding is set to take place, while Fifi's sister Pixie is also expected to attend the ceremony.

Preparations for the wedding have been gathering pace over the last few days, with Fifi revealing via social media she has already got her "wedding nails and feet" done and thanking people for their "well wishes".

Similarly, marquees have been erected in the garden of the church and fireworks have reportedly been tested in preparation for the big day.

Meanwhile, one neighbour, who did not want to be named, told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I think a wedding is happening.

"I think they are all there. I can hear little voices, I think there are children there.

"The gardeners have been blowing leaves out of the way. There is a rear door to the church, so they could go through that."

Earlier this year, Fifi admitted she had made a conscious decision to keep the precise details of her wedding a closely-guarded secret.

Speaking in May, she said: "I have told friends lots of different dates and planted a few red herrings, so that no one knows exactly when it is.

"They will find out, but it's a long way off - more than ten weeks away. That's all I will say."

Fifi has already confirmed she will not be posting photos from the event and the couple are reportedly banning camera phones from the ceremony, too.

Paula and Peaches died of heroin overdoses in 2000 and 2014 respectively.
