Cheryl 'wasn't invited' to Liam Payne's sister's wedding as the bride wanted 'all eyes on her'
It's hard to command a room when two superstars are sitting in the front row.
Liam Payne's sister was faced with that dilemma at her recent wedding - where the One Direction singer was a groomsmen, joined by his girlfriend Cheryl Fernandez-Versini.
Ruth Payne wed on Saturday and while the music power couple were pictured looking loved-up on the big day, it's reported the bride originally didn't want the X Factor judge at her ceremony.
"Ruth and her fiancé Tom have asked Liam to being Cheryl to the reception, but they're only inviting close friends and family to the main ceremony," an insider told heat magazine.
"Cheryl wasn't dating Liam last year when planning for the big day started and Ruth wants all eyes on her when she walks down the aisle."
It looks like an agreement was made between both parties as Cheryl was seen supporting her boyfriend of six months for his sister's big day. And she was wearing a full length grey smock with minimal makeup and a ponytail, so no one could accuse her of trying to steal the spotlight.
"Cheryl's met Liam's family and his sister and has made every effort to befriend her, including sending gifts to her dog Brit.
