Henson and Church tying the knot in Caribbean

Charlotte Church is getting married in the Caribbean.

Charlotte Church is getting married in the Caribbean.

The singer-turned-TV star and her fiance Gavin Henson – who have two children, Ruby, two, and 15-month-old Dexter – are reportedly hoping to tie the knot on Paradise Island in the Bahamas in July.

A source said: "Gavin and Charlotte are planning to get married in July. Gavin picked Paradise Island in the Bahamas because he likes the idea of seeing Charlotte walking down the beach in a wedding dress.

“They’re hoping to exchange vows on one of the island’s stunning white beaches, then have a glitzy reception afterwards. It's the perfect place for a romantic wedding."

Despite reportedly considering the family-friendly Atlantis resort on the island, pals are confident the wedding won’t be a tame affair.

The source added: “Knowing Gav and Charlotte they’ll end up skinny dipping in the sea with a couple of bottles of champagne floating around them!”

Charlotte revealed this week she and Gavin, 28, were getting hitched after five years of dating.

Speaking about the surprise proposal, which took place on the singer’s 24th birthday, she said: "I absolutely didn't expect it. It was perfect."

Rugby player Gavin bought the engagement ring for Charlotte when they were on holiday in Dubai earlier this year, and admits he has been desperate to make Charlotte his wife for some time.

He said: "It's time to get married. I want us to be a family and we have different names at the moment. Me, Ruby and Dexter are Henson and Charlotte is Church. It feels right."
