Wedding weekend for footie stars

England's footie team have had a busy weekend with four players getting married and the rest of them trying to decide which of the weddings to go to!

Captain John Terry's wedding was on 15 June, with Steven Gerrard, Gary Neville and Michael Carrick's all on 16 June.

You'd think they'd have wanted to relax after a hard season, but if they wanted a honeymoon before pre-season training, it was the best time to say 'I do'.

But it made life hard for their mates who had to choose which bash to go to?

David Beckham is one of Gary Neville's best mates, but he had to miss his friend's big day because of a massive match for Real Madrid on Sunday.

Wayne Rooney and Coleen McLoughlin did their best to keep everyone happy by making it to two out of the three Saturday weddings.

They went to Steven Gerrard's marriage to Alex Curran before hot-footing it up to Manchester Cathedral to see Gary Neville marry his fiancee Emma Hadfield.
