It was arguably the biggest showbiz event of the weekend, but Geri Halliwell’s wedding left us pondering over the absence of three of her former bandmates.
With just Emma Bunton turning up on the day, and the rest of the girls sending messages of love and luck to the bride, fans wondered why Victoria, Mel B and Mel C didn’t make it to Geri’s nuptials.
Well, the reason behind their no-shows has been revealed, and it’s all down to a bit of an organisation blunder on Geri’s part, apparently.
Despite rumours of rifts, it has emerged that the girls were unable to attend yesterday due to receiving the invitations at such late notice. According to a source, Geri was keen to hold back the invitations for fear the information would leak, leaving Victoria and the two Mels already tied up with work and family commitments on the big day.
A source told The Mirror: “There hasn’t been a big fall out. They have all been texting each other. Geri left the invitations quite late so they didn’t leak and unfortunately some of the girls couldn’t make it.”
@GeriHalliwell wishing you the most beautiful special day of your life,I love you xxxx
