Cheryl Cole Wedding: Black Ralph and Russo Dress For Second Ceremony In London

And the bride wore... black couture [Rex]

Cheryl Cole certainly likes to keep us on our toes. Not content with sending the world into a spin with her whirlwind wedding, the popstrel has thrown a second wedding bash in London and she wore... black. Wowsers!

Chezza arrived at the shindig on the arm of new husband, Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini, who she married in secret during an intimate ceremony in the Maldives after three months of dating. But rather than opting for a floaty white number, she channeled a touch of The Jolie in a black couture gown by British couturiers Ralph & Russo.

As for JB, he looked just as chic in a black suit, shirt and shiny loafers.

Of course, Cheryl's Girls Aloud band mates were in attendance - Kimberley Walsh, in full pregnancy bloom, wore a black jumpsuit under a white blazer while Nicola Roberts looked gorgeous in a black and white maxi. X Factor boss Simon Cowell was also expected to put in an appearance.
