Robbie Williams and Ayda Field are planning a second wedding reception in Istanbul.
Robbie Williams enjoyed his wedding reception so much he is having another one. The Take That singer, 36, and the US actress exchanged vows in an intimate ceremony at their Beverly Hills home on Saturday.
But Ayda, 31, wants another wedding for the family members that couldn’t make it, including her dad living in Istanbul.
‘She wants to see her gran again,’ says Haldun Evecan, 68, who was only able to speak to his daughter over the phone on her big day. ‘She’s 92 and would love to dance at Ayda’s wedding.’
Haldun missed much of Ayda’s childhood after splitting from her mum Gwen in 1982 and moving to Turkey.
‘We were on the phone for about an hour together,’ he tells The Sun.
‘I was wishing her happiness and apologising that I hadn’t been there for her as she was growing up. ‘We were both in tears during the call, but there were tears of joy. She was very happy to be marrying Robbie and I’m happy for her.’
An excitable Robbie couldn’t contain his pride as he saw his beautiful bride for the first time, explaining that “Ayda looked like the most beautiful girl in the world. The setting was so magical, and to be surrounded by family and close friends and then see Ayda appear looking so radiant was almost too much for me to take… I’m the happiest man alive”.
Istanbul has many magical settings for their second wedding.
