A palace in Oxfordshire has closed to visitors to facilitate the wedding of celebrities Marvin Humes from JLS and Rochelle Wiseman from The Saturdays.

The couple are due to marry at Blenheim Palace.

The building, courtyards and formal gardens at the Palace, classed as a World Heritage Site, closed early at 16:00 BST.

The couple became engaged in December 2010 during a holiday on the Caribbean island of Antigua.

A notice warned visitors of the closure saying it was due to a "large private event".

"The park, the new east courtyard facility and the pleasure gardens will be open until 6.00pm as normal" it stated.

Mr Humes, 27, found fame in JLS when they came second on The X Factor in 2008. They have had five UK number one singles, including Everybody in Love.

They also performed the 2012 BBC Sport Relief song, Proud.

The Saturdays' hits include Just Can't Get Enough, a cover of the Depeche Mode song.

Miss Wiseman, 23, was previously a member of S Club Juniors.

Blenheim Palace was a gift from Queen Anne to John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough, following his victory at the Battle of Blenheim in 1704.

It was also the birthplace of Winston Churchill in 1874.
