Cheryl Cole To Host Party To Celebrate Wedding To Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini

Cheryl may have tied the knot with just four guests in attendance in a secret ceremony in Mustique, but now she plans to celebrate the happy news on a much bigger scale.

The singer, who's now changed her surname to take her French hubby's - Fernandez-Versini, is reportedly playing host to 80 friends and family in a post-wedding bash this week.

A friend of the singer told MailOnline: "Cheryl just wants to share her happiness with those closest to her and will be throwing a party at some point later this week."

But it's not expected to be any sort of second wedding, just a good old fashioned party: "She won't be renewing her vows or having another ceremony as has been reported, or even wearing a wedding dress.

"She's been so busy that she hasn't had time to see everyone since she flew back home, so this is the perfect opportunity for her and Jean-Bernard to catch up with their nearest and dearest."

The source also explained that they've been dating longer than people think: "They actually got to know each other at the end of last year when Cheryl was in South Africa, but they were just friends then. They got together earlier this year."

Either way, the news that the pair had tied the knot still came as a pretty big shock, not least because Chezza revealed it via Instagram with a snap of her wedding ring, and the caption: "I usually do not discuss my personal life but to stop the speculation I want to share my happy news... Jean-Bernard and I married on 7/7/14.. We are very happy and excited to move forward with our lives together."
