Lily Allen praises local church

Pregnant ‘Smile’ singer Lily Allen (26), who married bulider Sam Cooper last month, decided to marry in her local village of Cranham, Gloucestershire, UK, because of the support she received from neighbours when she lost her last baby when she was six months pregnant last November.

“People wouldn’t have thought I’d have a church wedding, but since I had the really traumatic experience last year, our local community all pitched in. We hadn’t been there long, but after the news got out we received flowers and really heartfelt, beautifully written cards. our vicar said a similar thing had happened to his family, so he would come over and sit with me,” she says. “It feels really nice. We feel protected.”
