The couple want to wed in 2015
The Coronation Street actress, 26, admits that she’s not thought about the ceremony in too much detail yet but has been looking at dresses and hopes to get hitched in 2015.
‘I am quite traditional, so I’ll take Mark‘s surname and we’d like to get married in a church,’ says Michelle.
‘We’ve both got big families, so it’s not going to be just me and Mark getting married abroad. I think it’s going to be here in England, a big wedding with our families.’
The couple were originally reported to be getting wed in Dubai next year – where ex-TOWIE hunk Mark, 26, proposed – but now say they want to ‘enjoy being engaged’ for a while.
Michelle will move from Manchester to Mark‘s home county of Essex when she leaves Corrie in May – and they want a home that’s perfect for their future.
‘We definitely want a family, too, but we want to do everything in order. We want to get married first,’ Michelle tells Hello!
‘We’ve started looking into it now. We’ve been looking at land, too. We are trying to make the decision whether to build or just move into a house.’
