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.

    They could have arranged the wedding for after the finals in the first place.

  2. Martin Coffee says:

    There are spaces available on flights direct from Paris to Ibiza on both Thursday and Friday. Where there’s a will there’s a way.

  3. Anne Greagsby says:

    Wish he would postpone alterations/wrecking his classic art deco house. More money then sense. Conservation and preservation of Penarth treasures should come first no matter who the applicant is.

  4. Frank Evans says:

    What’s with that God awful beard? His misses to be must stock up on the savalon😁

      When I first saw him on TV playing football I thought it looked strange as you don’t normally associate international football players with hipsters.

  5. Happy days says:

    Love reading all this negativity.
    Have a good day 👍🏻

  6. Happy sunny day all you negative folk 😳

  7. Big Davey says:

    I’ve seen the plans and it looks like a great renovation and adaption whilst retaining the 20s character. We should support him and his new wife to be.

    • pompousfruit says:

      Rather silly arranging a wedding during the Euro finals because even if Wales had got knocked out earlier surely he would want a rest afterwards or need time for last minute preparations.

      • Eyes and Ears says:

        maybe they organised the wedding so far in advance and then the unthinkable happened. Wales qualified, got through the group and kept going. He has just played a Semi Final 2 months after breaking a bone in his leg and is getting married. I’m sure they are both happy enough
