Ellie Goulding wants 'church wedding'

Ellie Goulding wants a "traditional church wedding."

The 28-year-old singer has revealed she was originally adamant she didn't want to get married out of fear of getting divorced, but her opinion on getting hitched has taken a U-turn since she began dating her beau Dougie Poynter.

Speaking in the November issue of Glamour magazine, she said when asked if she wants to wed: "God, yes! I'm nearly 30. I once had a pretty warped view of marriage because so many people around me had divorced parents.

"So for a long time I did think that I'd never get married and that men were s**t - all that stuff. But when someone comes along and re-establishes that trust, [whispering now in case Dougie overhears] then it's nice to think of doing everything the traditional way: having a church wedding, with all my family in one place - I love the idea of that."

Meanwhile, the McBusted star, 27, has made no secret of the fact he'd like to make an honest woman out of Ellie and even hinted a few months ago that wedding bells could be just around the corner for the pair.

Asked whether he's going to pop the question in the near future, he teased earlier this year: "Well... I don't want to say too much. It would ruin the surprise."

The couple met at the Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women Of The Year Awards in London in December 2013 and have been inseparable ever since.
