Melbourne, October 31 : Aussie cricket vice-captain Michael Clarke's fiancee, model Lara Bingle, has said that their marriage will not be "a red carpet event".
"It will definitely be elegant but I don't want it to be too full on. It's still a wedding and not a red carpet event," News.com.au quoted the Speedo swimsuit model as saying.
The Sutherland Shire beauty admitted that her big day "will be very hard" for her after the loss of her father Graham to cancer in May.
"Our engagement party was really close to my heart because my dad was there and I'm not sure who will give me away yet," she said.
She even revealed that she was pitching for a summer ceremony.
"Summer is much more suited to me. A winter wedding would not be my choice," she told Who magazine.
Bringle, though previously hinted that she had chosen designer Lisa Ho to create her gown, said that her search for the perfect frock was yet not over.
She slammed reports by New Idea, the magazine to which the couple sold their engagement story, that suggested that her wedding plans were off.
"It was hurtful because it was just so silly," Bingle said of the false claims.
"Getting married is going to be so special for Michael and I. He's changed my life. I wouldn't be where I am today if I didn't have him," she added.
