Wedding we'd all like to attend? Katy and Russell's tops the poll

Russell Brand and Katy Perry's impending marriage is the celebrity wedding most people would like an invitation to, according to a survey published today.

The pair saw off competition from other celebrity couples including prince William and Kate Middleton, and Hollywood stars Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, with more than a quarter (26pc) of the 2,000 people asked opting for their wedding.

The 34-year-old comedian, originally from Essex, is said to have proposed to the 25-year-old singer in India on New Year's Eve.

Their wedding is expected to take place later this year.

Wedding co-ordinator Siobhan Craven-Robins said: "The best wedding celebrations don't have to come with a celebrity price tag but are generally those that reflect the personalities of the couple, so it's perhaps no surprise to see Russell Brand and Katy Perry at the top of this list."

Second place in the UK poll went to prince William and Kate Middleton with 13pc of people nominating them. Bringing up the rear were former One Show host Christine Bleakley and Chelsea footballer Frank Lampard who only got 3pc of votes cast.

Two-thousand people took part in the survey carried out by One Poll on behalf of Mercure hotels.
