WAG flies to Italy to view potential venues

Coleen McLoughlin has been making secret plans to marry at a fairy-tale castle in Italy.

The 21-year-old – engaged to footy ace Wayne Ronney – hired a private jet to fly to Castello Brown in Portofino this week and spent the day taking in the panoramic views, banquet hall and gorgeous gardens.

‘The castle is a close to a fairy-tale setting as you can get,’ a source tells the Sun.

‘It’s the sort of place any young princess would dream of getting married. Coleen was left breathless by its beauty.

‘This was a very hush-hush trip and Coleen was so excited. She’s seriously thinking about having the wedding overseas.’

And the WAG – who’s been with Wayne, 22, since she was 16 – has also said to have looked at nearby Villa Durazzo, where Rod Stewart and Penny Lancaster tied the knot last year.

But despite not yet setting a fixed date for their big day, the celebrity couple are believed to have already signed a £1.5 million magazine deal for the wedding rights.
