Petra and Sam live in Los Angeles, but they flew into the UK last week ahead of their big day, which the couple have kept under wraps from her family! Her father, former F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone, revealed he wasn't aware of the location or details about their wedding, which events company Banana Splits is organising.

"They're getting married this weekend, somewhere in London. I don't know the exact location because Petra hasn't told me yet," Bernie told FEMAIL. "It's wonderful news. Let's hope she will be happier than she was in her last marriage."

The 91-year-old continued: "I think she's chosen a good guy. I don't know Sam very well because they live in the States and I don't see them very often.

Their private dinner was pink-themed

"I've met him a few times and like him. Hopefully, I'll get to know him a little better."

Petra previously married businessman James Stunt in 2011, but they split in 2017. During their six-year marriage, the former couple welcomed three children: daughter Lavinia, nine, and six-year-old twins Andrew and James.

Petra and Sam met in 2017 through her brother-in-law Jay Rutland, and they announced their engagement just one year later.
