Snow Patrol’s Johnny McDaid is taking charge of wedding plans according to reports.
The guitarist and Courteney Cox have been dating on and off since 2013 and got engaged in 2015. Now it seems that Johnny is planning the nuptials himself as a romantic surprise for his Friends star fiancé.
A source close to the pair to Heat Magazine that the groom-to-be is stepping up as wedding planner.“Johnny wants to get married and he feels he and Court have waited long enough,” the source said. “Johnny wants to do things really differently and wants to do all the wedding planning.“He wants to organise the food, the music… even the flowers!”
The musician has thought of every detail it seems, as he has reportedly even enlisted the help of Courtney’s jewellery designer friend Jennifer Meyer, to create the wedding rings. “He loved the ones Jen designed for Justin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston’s wedding, and has asked her to do theirs,” the source explained.
“Jen has made 18-carat gold twists that look a bit like snakes with very rough hewn edges – they come from a photo Johnny saw in an old Irish folklore book about a groom who walked across the ocean for his bride.
“After years of delays, Johnny wants to show Court how serious he is by presenting the wedding rings and telling her about his wedding planning next month.”
Last September, Johnny made another grand gesture of love when he got Courteney’s initials tattooed on his wrist.
