Lily Allen’s Las Vegas wedding may have been one of the coolest weddings ever, but she’s revealed she and David Harbour never intended to get married there.
The Smile singer, 35, married her Stranger Things beau, 45, in Las Vegas at the start of September, with the ceremony being officiated by an Elvis Presley impersonator.
Despite thrilling fans with their epic wedding photos – including them posing with Elvis as well as scoffing In-N-Out burgers in their finery, the wedding would have been very different if it hadn’t been for the coronavirus pandemic.
Lily explained on Gizzi Erskine and Sydney Lima’s Sex, Lies and DM Slides podcast: ‘No, no, I never wanted to get married in Vegas.
‘Why did we get married in Vegas? Because we just wanted to get married, and because the lockdown situations everywhere, it was just really difficult, and it was assumed to be the only place that was stupid enough to have a ceremony, so that’s how it happened.’
Lily added that the pair were planning to keep it a secret but officials ended up spilling the beans for them: ‘Interesting though that we didn’t plan to announce it to anyone.
‘It was meant to be a very private affair, and then we were leaving Vegas driving to Los Angeles, and Nevada Clark County tweeted our marriage certificate.
‘So, that saying of what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas is actually what happens in Vegas gets tweeted out by Vegas.’
Lily also revealed that she and David had bought a ‘three-song package’ at the Graceland Chapel, and their vows included references to Elvis’s hits, such as: ‘I vow never to step on your blue suede shoes’.
Later in the interview, Lily – who recently launched her own range of vibrators – also made a hilarious revelation about where she hides her (by the sounds of it, copious amounts of) sex toys so her children don’t stumble upon them.
She explained: ‘Oh my god, [I have] so many, so many [vibrators]. I actually have basically a washing basket, in my bathroom, that’s got two sides to it.
‘It’s like a double wash [basket] I guess you’re meant to put like your whites and colours in it, or your dry cleaning and something else and it’s actually just washing, and dildos.
‘And it literally goes to the top. The one place I know my kids are never gonna look is the washing basket.’
It’s certainly inventive, we’ll give her that.
