Penarth international soccer star Joe Ledley has been forced to cancel his wedding this weekend because of the Wales team’s remarkable run in the Euro 2016 competition.
Joe was due to marry his fiancée Ruby May Ridgeway on Saturday – in the Mediterranean Balearic island of Ibiza – but the nuptials have had to be put on hold.
Even if Wales are beaten by Portugal on Wednesday the team won’t get back home until Friday – which won’t give the couple and their families enough time to get out to Ibiza for the planned Saturday wedding
….And then – (dare we even think it?) – if Wales happen to beat Portugal in the semi-finals, the Welsh players will find themselves in the final of the Euro 2016 competition on Sunday night.
But Joe’s fiancée Ruby May isn’t the least phased by the impending delay. After Welsh the team beat Belgium she tweeted: “Can’t quite believe what happened last night. I think I’m still in a state of shock. Outstanding from every single player, this is a dream.”
The couple are also embarking on a major redevelopment of their classic art-deco 1930s house at Cliff Parade, Penarth which will become their new family home.
