Robbie Williams Had Barking Bridesmaids

Robbie Williams' eight dogs were bridesmaids at his wedding.

The 'She's The One' singer and his new wife Ayda Field - who he tied the knot with in an intimate ceremony at his Beverly Hills home on Saturday (07.08.10) - were so determined to keep their nuptials a secret they decided not to risk asking any of their friends to be part of the bridal party, meaning the Take That star also didn't have a best man.

Speaking before the wedding, Ayda said: "Our doggies are taking the bridesmaid roles! I was originally thinking little bow ties for them, but instead they're going to have flower collars."

The couple considered a variety of locations for their nuptials, but decided to marry at home so their pet pooches could be there.

Robbie said in an interview with Britain's Hello! magazine: "My idea was, 'Yeah, I love you, I'm yours for life, why don't we just pop to Las Vegas and make it official?' But then I realised how important the day is to Ayda and that she had a day planned in her head."

Ayda added: "We were thinking of a beach in the Bahamas, but it's hurricane season in August. Then we thought of a surprise sleepover in Santa Monica, but people have children to think about. We feel safe in this house - plus we wanted the doggies to be here."

The James Bond-themed ceremony - which featured a black carpet as the 60 guests walked in - was followed by a lavish reception, where three meals were served, consisting of the Newlyweds favourite foods, including sushi, steak and red velvet cake.

A Moroccan marquee hosted entertainment for the evening, which included singing by Robbie's dad Pete Conway and a rendition of 'Angels' by the groom, before the evening ended at 1am with a traditional full English breakfast, with Robbie and Ayda tucking in dressed in new matching pyjamas bearing their initials.

Though the couple exchanged rings, the 36-year-old singer isn't planning to keep his.

He explained: "I'm not very comfortable with jewellery and I lose stuff. So I'm thinking of having a tattoo on my wedding finger."
