Emma Bunton and her boyfriend of twenty years Jade Jones are set to marry at London's Old Marylebone Town Hall. Photographs of the Spice Girl heading into the venue over the weekend were published by the Sunday Mirror newspaper, which also reported that she gave notice of intent to marry. The couple, who have two children together - Beau, 11, and seven-year-old Tate - got engaged in January 2011, and Emma recently opened up about getting married. She told Fabulous magazine: "There aren't any plans for a wedding, but we do talk about it. I think because both of us are Aquarius we try and live for the moment, so don't plan things too far ahead. I'm so lucky to have found him."
