Poppy Delevingne will have 17 bridesmaids to support her when she marries James Cook this Friday, it has been revealed.

Her father, property developer Charles, confirmed the reports. "Yes, that is true," he told the Daily Mail. "I'm very excited."

 



The ceremony will take place at St Paul's Church in London's Knightsbridge.

It has not been confirmed who the 17 bridesmaids will be, but the two most obvious choices are sisters Cara and Chloe. At Chloe's wedding last month, both Poppy and Cara were behind their sister as she walked up the aisle.

Also likely to be bridesmaids on Poppy's big day are super stylish BFFs Sienna Miller and Alexa Chung.

 



Laura Bailey and Mary Charteris were also at Poppy's two hen parties.

Poppy has kept all her fans updated on Instagram by documenting her multiple hen dos – one in London, one in Coachella and a send-off macaroon party from Chanel– with her famous friends .

But it was recently revealed that the bride-to-be has put a social media ban on her civil wedding to fiancé James Cook in London and the blessing of the marriage in Morocco.

"Poppy and James want it to be private and no one can post any pictures," said Chloe.

Photographs of the ceremony will be published in monthly glossy Porter. The magazine is said to be not paying for the picture rights, but providing freebies for the bride and guests instead.

Poppy's first hen do was in London and she spent it with famous friends including Alexa Chung, Harry Styles , Sienna Miller, Jaime Winstone and Georgia May Jagger.

There was lots of dressing up and everybody got into the '90s theme with Poppy dressing as Alabama from the movie True Romance, Sienna recreating the character Patsy from Absolutely Fabulous and best pals Harry Styles and Nick Grimshaw donning blonde wigs as 90s pop icons, Hanson.

To celebrate her impending nuptials, there were themed cupcakes, personalised love heart sweets and life-size cut outs of the bride and groom. The festivities began at the exclusive Groucho Club in Soho and later continued at the Edition Hotel.

Several months later, Poppy celebrated getting married a second time with a hen do in Coachella.

The model sunned herself and sipped cocktails with sister Cara and best friends Sienna and Mary Charteris. She even renamed the festival in her honour, to Popchella.
