Shameless Star Noel Fisher Is Married to Layla Alizada


There's no shame in fawning over someone else's wedding photos—especially when they're this pretty! Shameless star Noel Fisher just recently wed actress Layla Alizada in an ultraromantic ceremony in their very own backyard. Now newlyweds, the couple just released the first photo of their big day—and it's gorgeous.

Fisher, best known for his role as Mickey Milkovich on the Showtime hit, first met Alizada on the set of the Canadian TV series Godiva back in 2005. After first spotting each other in the makeup trailer, the pair connected at the wrap party for the show, where they reportedly shared their very first kiss. Then, in the spring of 2014, Fisher finally popped the question. "Noel asked Layla to marry him when they were vacationing at the St. Regis in Bora Bora in mid-May," a source told Us Weekly at the time. "They're thrilled!"

Now that these two are officially wed, after a three-year engagement, we're sure they're even more so!

On July 15, Fisher and Alizada said their I do's in their Los Angeles backyard in front of 60 guests, according to People magazine. "We always wanted a wedding that was small and intimate," the couple told the entertainment mag. "It was a magical day and even more special having so much of it put together with the help of our loved ones."

For the big day, the bride donned a lacy Morilee wedding dress, which she showed off in her and her now-husband's wedding portrait. In the photo, Fisher and Alizada are seen sharing a smooch amongst woodland-inspired greenery, fairy string lights, and colorful blooms. Alizada adorned her curly locks with bits of baby's breath, and she looked totally smitten with her hubby, in his blue-hued Kenneth Cole suit.

After the ceremony, the newlyweds and their guests dined on a Mediterranean-inspired menu and sipped on Patricius Tokaj wine throughout the reception.

"[We’re] so grateful for the people in our lives and that everyone was able to share this day with us," said the couple.

Bride gives father-daughter dance


A Massachusetts bride gave her childhood friend and her family the gift of a lifetime at her wedding: a memory they would likely not otherwise have.

Jessica Otto's dad, Peter Otto, has cancer for the fourth time. "He isn't doing well," Jessica Otto told ABC News, adding that he only has a month or two to live.

Michaela Cook-Yotts, who has known the Otto family since she was in second grade, said it was actually her now-wife, Nora Cook-Yotts, who had the idea to give Jessica and Peter their own father-daughter dance at their wedding. "When she met Mr. Otto, she fell in love with him," Cook-Yotts said.

The couple presented the idea to Jessica Otto, who was "immediately down," said Cook-Yotts.

"Deep down, I knew it wasn't in the cards for us," Jessica said. "It was everything to me, I don’t think they will ever fully know [what] it meant to me."

Her dad, Jessica Otto said, is her best friend. "He would give you the shirt off his back, the kindest person most selfless I've ever met," she said. To know that he won't be dancing with her, or her sister, who is currently engaged, at their weddings, is painful, she added.

Jessica Otto and her dad have many shared interests, including biking, she said. They both participate in the Pan-Mass Challenge (PMC), an annual bike-a-thon that benefits Dana-Farber, where Peter Otto is being treated, and goes through 46 Massachusetts towns over two days.

The duo rode together in 2014 and 2015. This year, Jessica Otto will ride on Aug. 5 and 6 alone, as her dad is not well enough to join her. The father-daughter team have fundraised around their efforts in the past, hoping that the money might somehow benefit Peter Otto.

Now, with the event coming up and her father in deteriorating health, Jessica Otto knows the money she raises won't help her family. "I used to go into this each year feeling really happy and positive," she said, "This year though, I have a lot of anger."

Still, she said, she hopes her fundraising will make a difference for someone else and she'll continue to do it as a tribute to her father. "As long as my body will let me ride, I'll ride," she said.

The missed moment of the upcoming PMC is one of the reasons memories like the one Cook-Yotts gave to the Otto family are so precious. The dance was a surprise for Peter Otto, Jessica Otto said.

"They called our names and had us come up there and he knew," she said. Peter Otto and his daughter's danced to a remix version of "Every Breath You Take." "It was so selfless of them to take time at their wedding to give us this moment."

"My dad is a man a of very few words, he doesn't express how he feels, he doesn’t say it but he shows it. He hugged us close to him," Jessica Otto said.

Cook-Yotts added, "It was the best part of the wedding and I know Nora would say the same thing. There wasn't a dry eye in the house."

How to Have a Low-Impact Wedding


We love weddings and everything that comes with them, but at the end of the day—after all of the dancing, eating, drinking, and happy tears—there’s a lot of stuff left over, stuff that often ends up in the trash. No one’s proud of it, but thankfully, there are ways to help lessen the effect your big day has on the world around you. We asked our experts for five tips to make your wedding a little more low-impact.

Shop Second-Hand

There are all sorts of ways to get what you want for your wedding without buying it brand new. There are a plethora of gently-used wedding dress sites, like OnceWed and Still White, where you can get the dress of your dreams (including designer finds like Vera Wang and Elie Saab) for a fraction of the price. Looking for items like votive candles or cloth napkins? Tradesy has an entire wedding page (that also includes menswear and bridesmaids’ dresses), and eBay just might have you covered.

Seek Recycled Materials

For the things you do need to purchase, look for those made from recycled materials. Paper Culture only uses recycled papers, and there are a huge number of artisan designers on Etsy doing the same.

Rent Instead of Buy

Of course, you’ll have the least impact by renting items instead of purchasing them at all. You know you can rent furniture, flatware, and tuxedos, but did you know you can also rent bridesmaid dresses (we love Vow to be Chic, and Rent the Runway is perfect for that on-trend mismatched look) and even your wedding dress? Again, the Rent the Runway collection is incredible for a non-traditional bride, and Borrowing Magnolia has designers like Pronovias and Hayley Paige.

Consider Vendors Carefully

If you’re really committed to a low-impact wedding, seek vendors who feel the same way. Look for vendors who give back, whether it’s donating flowers to local hospitals or donating their time to local charities. Find those who prioritize green practices, like using reusable water bottles in welcome bags. When you’re interviewing your vendors, don’t be afraid to ask! Most will be more than happy to tell you what they love to do to make the world a little brighter.

Register for Charitable Donations

Got everything you need at home? Instead of kitchen upgrades, ask your guests to donate what they might spend on a gift toward a cause you (or they!) love. You can also opt to skip those favors and instead put that money toward a bigger donation to your charity of choice.

An Elevated Backyard Wedding in Georgia


Sherita Starks and Dion Watkins go back—way back, actually. “Dion and I met in Mrs. Early’s fourth grade class in 1987,” Sherita says. “Dion was my first crush!” The two were friends for years and even dated briefly in college, but they finally made it official when Sherita moved to the West Coast to pursue her acting career. Seven years later, they found themselves back in Atlanta and bumped into one another at a local bar. Can you say “fate”?

After almost two (more) years together, Dion wanted to propose to Sherita, and knew just how to do it. “We were home to celebrate Dion’s grandmother’s 100th birthday,” she remembers. “We went for a walk together on the Beltline, and he proposed underneath a gorgeous tree.” The timing was especially fitting since the ring Dion slipped on Sherita’s finger belonged to her grandmother.


With a love story that dates back to childhood, it was no surprise that Sherita and Dion chose the groom’s childhood home as the venue for their May 13, 2017 backyard party. “We wanted something simple and intimate, and Dion’s parents’ home was just the place,” Sherita explains. It also meant they could limit their guest list to 100 people, making sure their families and closest friends really felt the love.

Photographed by Kelly Anne Berry, this spring wedding outside of Atlanta will have you looking at your childhood backyard in a whole new light.

As soon as Sherita found her wedding dress, everything else fell into place. “I became obsessed with the designer [Rime Arodaky] and followed her closely on Instagram," she says. "That’s actually how I found our photographer!” The bodice featured a bateau neckline and cap sleeves, which lead to a plunging open back. But the best part? That veil!

Sherita added a rich pop of color with her bouquet, a combination of spirea, blush garden roses, burgundy ranunculus, hellebores, sweet pea, astilbe, and eucalyptus.

Sherita and Dion kept their wedding party small, each tapping a single friend to stand up front during the ceremony. They added a personal touch by inviting a group of friends to serve as their unofficial wedding party and asked them to walk down the aisle ahead of the maid of honor and best man. “We had them each wear boutonnieres so they would stand out,” Sherita says. And of course, they had the cutest flower girl and ring bearer, ever.

Dion rented a navy suit from The Black Tux and added a ranunculus boutonniere to his lapel. “We had all of our guests wear black and white, so Dion popped a little bit more in navy,” Sherita says.

You won’t believe it, but Sherita and Dion’s ceremony took place in the groom’s driveway! They set up a wooden mantle, flanked by candles in modern hurricanes and an array of midcentury furniture. “I wanted it to feel like a living room,” says the bride. “We had our families take a seat on the lounge furniture so they would be a part of the ceremony.” The mantle was topped with a garland of burgundy and blush dahlias, ranunculus, hellebores, and roses, finished with eucalyptus and other branches. Instead of a runner, the aisle was lined with oriental rugs.

Sherita walked down the aisle with her mother, but honored her late father when she selected her wedding date: his birthday!

“We wrote our own vows, but wanted to keep them to ourselves, so we exchanged notes with one another while we got ready that morning,” Sherita says. After the first kiss, guests showered the newlyweds with white rose petals. When the pastor asked Sherita if she took Dion as her husband, the bride said more than “I do.” “I looked at him and exclaimed ‘I sure will,’” she says, laughing.

"Our wedding was more than I ever could have imagined,” Sherita says. “At one point Dion looked at me and said, ‘Babe, let’s just look around and take all of this in.’ I’m so glad we paused to really absorb it.”

The reception took place around the pool, with a mix of high and low tables topped with burgundy centerpieces. The florist mixed dahlias, roses, ranunculus, and hellebores in burgundy, peach, blush, and cream, then scattered votive candles in metallic holders. Even the pool itself was decorated with floating flowers and candles.

The dance floor was buzzing as soon as the DJ got started. Sherita and Dion danced to “Spend a Life” by Jamiroquai and “Love Makes Things Happen” by Pebbles and Babyface for their first dances, and then invited their mothers to join them for “Before I Let Go” by Frankie Beverly and “My Girl” by The Temptations.

“The hit song of the night was definitely ‘Swag and Surf,’” says the bride. “The best man started rapping!”

Pippa O'Connor and Brian Ormond


Celebrity couple Pippa O'Connor and Brian Ormond celebrated their sixth wedding anniversary with sweet tributes to each other.

Social media star Pippa (33) and her business manager husband (37), who have sons Louis (14 months) and Ollie (4), married in 2011 in Co Wicklow and had a big celebrity bash in the Powerscourt Hotel.

They both posted throwback pictures of their wedding over the weekend, with Brian calling Pippa "the most amazing wife".

"You to me are everything," he wrote.

Blogger Pippa, who hit the town to celebrate on Saturday night, told the Diary that their time as a married couple has "flown by".

"We've packed a lot in between having the boys, starting a business. It's been a busy six years," she said.

The couple met through a mutual friend in Dublin's Krystle nightclub in 2008 and have become one of Ireland's best-known celebrity couples.

But Pippa admits that, like any other busy working mum, she needs time away from her family too sometimes.

Last week saw her flying to Ibiza for a few fun-filled days on the party island, but this time around with a different Brian.

She was joined by her best pal Brian Dowling and three other buddies as they hit some of the island's hottest spots.

However, Pippa revealed that there definitely wasn't any clubbing involved, as TV presenter Brian reckons they're too long in the tooth.

"It was so fun. It looked like we were absolutely mad, but we weren't doing the typical Ibiza thing, going to nightclubs," she said.

"Brian was like, 'Darling, we're too old for nightclubs!' So we were in amazing restaurants and nice bars and that was it.

"There were five of us, but it was the best fun. I feel like I need to go on a retreat afterwards."

Pippa also said she doesn't buy into any notion of "mummy guilt" about leaving her two boys, as it's good for her to have some quality time away from the house as well.

"I've never done more than three nights away from them in a row, but I think whether you get to go away on a break or go out to an event for the day with a friend, I think it's so important for everyone to take time out," she said.

"That's whether you're a working mum or a stay-at-home mum. I don't feel guilty because it's good for them and I think it's good for me.

"I know they're at home with their dad and they're being looked after.

"I think it stands to you when you're a mum to remember that you're not just a mum and you can go and do different things."

Wedding day for Virginia couple


With all the planning that goes into a wedding, every bride wants to have the perfect day, but there were several hiccups along the way for one Hampton Roads couple.

Many people may have seen the wedding party standing along Interstate 264 near the Witchduck Road exit on Saturday. That’s because the bus carrying the entire party — including the bride and groom — broke down.

“We’re about 37 seconds into the trip and all of girls are like, ‘Something is burning,’” Chelsie Schrum, the bride’s sister-in-law said.

The wedding party had left the hotel, and was heading to the wedding venue when they started seeing smoke.

“The bus driver, she felt horrible. She was about to cry,” said Chris Schrum, the bride’s brother.

Off the bus and all smiles, what do the girls do? Take pictures, of course. Meanwhile, Chris Schrum got the dress.

“We’re on the side of the road for about a couple minutes, VDOT gets there, Trooper Don — we love him — he gets there and then Legacy came through like Johnny on the spot, got us a huge bus,” Chelsie Schrum said.

Trooper Don Thornton said he thought there was a serious issue when he saw the group.

“I just had finished up with another disabled vehicle and I saw their vehicle — the bus — at the emergency pull off with a wedding party that was standing outside of it with 12 to 15 people with gowns and tuxedos,” Virginia State Trooper Donald Thornton said.

Once the new ride arrived, they were off, with the help of Trooper Don.

“He turned his lights on so that we could scootch into traffic,” Chelsie Schrum said.

But the bumps in the road didn’t stop there. After the ceremony, there was another issue.

“We get in there, the power is out for two hours. They can’t make the food, the drinks are getting warm. The cake is melting,” Chelsie Schrum said.

Through it all, Chris and Chelsea Schrum said the couple, Casey and Scott, weren’t fazed.

“Nothing has bothered her. We’re like, ‘Casey, the bus is broken down.’ She’s like, ‘Fine.’ Then we’re like, ‘There’s no power’ and she’s like, ‘Fine. I’m still getting married,’” Chelsie Schrum said.

And that they did.

Chelsea and Chris thanked Trooper Thornton, VDOT and the bus company for helping them get to the ceremony.

“It’s an unfortunate incident that occurred but in the end it was, looking at the pictures, it seems to be a happy bride and a memorable moment for them and their future,” Trooper Thornton said.

Easy hairdos for instant wedding plans


New Delhi, June 10 (IANS) Go for low bun, hairband braid or just accessorise your hairdo right to get ready for an instant wedding plan, say experts.

Sidhika Gupta, Fashion Head, ROPOSO – a social media fashion platform, and Javed Khan, Creative Head, Be U Salons, share some easy to make hairstyles.

* Low bun: Tie the hair close to your nape in a ponytail, then roll your hair upwards in a bun and fix it with U-shaped hairpins. Fan the hair-bun evenly on both sides using your fingers tips.

Also see:

* Hairband braid: For braiding, try skipping conditioning after shampoo. It might seem odd, but it makes a lot of difference in holding the braid better. Hairband braid is the sleekest way to keep your locks away from your face. Create tight braids with under each ear, wrap it across the edge of your hairline, and secure to back of the neck with bobby pins.

* Pixie: A pixie cut is a hairstyle generally short on the back and sides of the head and slightly longer on the top. You can accessorise this haircut with a headband.

* Double French twists: If you have thick hair make it a double with the double French twist; pump up the volume with a sock French twist; or take the easy route and do a messy French twist. Accessorise with fresh or silk flowers.

* Princess braids: A simple yet elegant way to make your hair look fresh. Just take a small front section on the right and braid back close to the head. Anchor the braid to your hair with a bobby pin and repeat on the opposite side. Accessories with hair pins to cover up the bobby pins.

* French braid: French braid hairstyles are timeless classics and they’re picture perfect for so many occasions. From classy affairs in the evening and weddings to relaxed days around town, French braids will accompany and complement your every outfit.

How to get the best value on your wedding finance


Last weekend’s wedding of the year saw Pippa Middleton marry James Matthews in a celebration that is estimated to have cost anywhere between £250,000 and £700,000, depending on which newspaper you read.

Even a relatively low-key wedding is far from cheap these days. The average cost of a wedding is £27,000, according to Bridebook, rising to £38,000 in London - and 4 per cent of weddings cost more than £100,000.

How are people funding these extravagant celebrations?

According to Moneysupermarket it is increasingly with a loan. The comparison website has recorded a 53 per cent increase in customers applying for wedding loans of more than £30,000 this year.


Over 50,000 people have applied for a wedding loan since January, reports The Times, with 10 per cent requesting more than £20,000. That seems like madness when you consider that 247,372 weddings took place in 2014 and there were 111,169 divorces.

It means there is a reasonable chance you would still be paying for your wedding after you had divorced.

Thankfully, it seems most engaged couples are more sensible. The average wedding loan people apply for is £8,497 and some wedding costs are falling.

The average amount spent on a wedding dress has falling from £1,329 to £832, according to online fashion retailer Lyst. While an engagement ring is typically worth 19% less now than 10 years ago with an average value of £1,080, reports the BBC.

If you do need to borrow money for your wedding then make sure you shop around for the best deal.

M&S Bank offers the lowest-rate personal loan of 2.8 per cent for £10,000 over five years. But, think hard about whether you want to still be paying for your big day in five years time when you may have other demands on your income such as a mortgage or children.

If you don’t need to borrow that much then see if you can put elements of your wedding on a zero per cent credit card. That way you can spread the cost of your wedding for free. Sainsbury’s Bank has the longest zero per cent deal for new purchases, giving you 31 months to clear the debt.

Finally, if you are planning to spend a large sum on your wedding day make sure you are insured. Wedding insurance has become big business in recent years and it is certainly worthwhile if you are spending thousands of pounds.

“Venue cancellation and supplier failure are the main things to consider when buying wedding insurance,” says Ben Wilson of Go Compare, in The Times.

“This ensures that you’re protected should the venue cancel your wedding, or if one of your pre-booked suppliers, a caterer for example, is unable to fulfil your order. To make a claim, you’ll need to have a written agreement or contract with the supplier.”

Just be aware that wedding insurance won’t pay out if your wedding doesn’t go ahead because one of you gets cold feet.
