Kate Moss and Jamie Hince after the rehearsal dinner
Oooh, we’re all of a quiver here in the Grazia office as preparations for the (second, but let’s not get all pedantic on the happy day) WEDDING OF THE YEAR gather momentum before the ceremony this morning, which is expected to kick-off at 11:30am.
Yesterday, the Cotswolds village was flooded with celeb-tastic guests and showbiz arrivals for the rehearsal dinner where leaked plans and rumours abound. Here’s what’s happened; Alison Mosshart, Jamie’s bandmate in The Kills rolled up ready to provide her services as Mr Hince’s “Best Woman”. Sadie Frost and assorted offspring were there too, her daughter Iris is going to be a bridesmaid and her son Rudy is involved too, as a page boy. Sadie, along with Jamie’s sister Sarah are going to do the readings in church.

Her maid of honour - Trish Simonon, wife of Clash bassist Paul Simonon - will be wearing a special Erdem creation, whilst Sadie Frost will wear a dress by Christopher Beales, Vogue.com reports.

Yikes! We’re sure that they have chosen a nice, spacious church.
Food will come from swanky London eaterie, China Tang at the Dorchester plus the Ritz in Paris, with copious vats of Grey Goose Vodka, Red Bull and Dom Perignon champagne to wash everything down, according to the Mail.
