Manchester United captain and England star Harry Maguire is planning to marry his partner of 10 years Fern Hawkins, while Three Lions team mate and good pal Jordan Pickford’s wife Megan Davison will be a bridesmaid
England star Harry Maguire is planning a romantic summer wedding with his fiancee Fern Hawkins.
Megan Davison, wife of his Three Lions team mate Jordan Pickford, will be one of the bridesmaids alongside Harry’s sister Daisy, who is maid of honour.
The Manchester United captain, 28, is set to marry Fern at a castle in Burgundy, France next June. Everton keeper Pickford, 27, will be one of the guests and was in the running for the role of best man.
But it is believed Harry has opted for his big brother Joe.
Jordan’s wife Megan has developed a close friendship with Fern on their many trips abroad following the England team.

Harry, who was brought up in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, is ‘big mates’ with Pickford on international duty.
And he remains very close to brothers Laurence, 25, and Joe, 30, who are both professional footballers.
Laurence told how his big brother regularly speaks to him about his footy career at National League side Chesterfield, and gives him sound advice.
Joe is a left back with League Two side Tranmere Rovers.
The family travelled together as ‘Team Maguire’ when Harry starred in England’s run to the 2018 World cup semi finals in Russia. And the three brothers went to see England play in the 2016 Euro Championships in France, before Harry had been called up by his country.
His proud parents Zoe and Alan will travel to Burgundy and will be staying in the chatel, a French castle, which is being booked for the big day.
Fern, 28, is busy planning the wedding and is said to be ‘very excited’ about getting married in such a romantic venue after 10 years with Harry.
She held a lavish ‘bridal brunch’ in Manchester last month at California-inspired restaurant Foodwell and a girly get-together in a suite at the upmarket Dakota Hotel.
Each place at the table was set with a personalised white gift box with the guest’s name in silver. It was accompanied by a note which read: ‘My darling best friend, plan with me, stand with me, cry with me, laugh with me. Please be my bridesmaid?’
Inside was a collection of treats including a photo, a £12 eye mask from boutique skincare label 111Skin and a bottle of £20 Whispering Angel rosé engraved with the message: ‘Fern’s Bridal Brunch’, and the date of the wedding.
Daisy and Megan shared photos of the note on Instagram. The hotel suite was decorated with pink and gold balloons, streamers and banners reading: ‘Fern’s bride squad’.
