Melanie "Mel B" Brown has big plans for her upcoming wedding to fiancé Rory McPhee.

During an appearance on Australian radio station 2DayFM last week, the former Spice Girls singer revealed that she hopes to get married at London’s prestigious St. Paul’s Cathedral, the iconic venue where the late Princess Diana wed King Charles — then Prince Charles — in 1981.

“I’m still waiting to hear back from St. Paul’s," said Brown, who appears on the panel of the Australian version of The Masked Singer. "Because I’ve got an MBE [Member of the Order of the British Empire], I can get married at the same place as Princess Diana got married, so we’ve put all our forms in and we’re waiting on them to give us a date."

“I’m going to do it properly, by the book, in church,” the mom of three added.

The British-born star also revealed that her former bandmate turned fashion designer, Victoria Beckham, 49, will be creating her dress. 

“Once I get the date, then I’ll go wedding dress shopping," said Brown. "But I already know that Victoria wants to make me a dress.”

“I’m probably going to have many different wedding dresses, so it’s probably going to be a two-week wedding,” Brown laughed with the DJs.

Brown announced her engagement to McPhee, a hair stylist, in October 2022 after three years dating.

"He said, 'I love you, you're my best friend and I want to spend the rest of my life with you,' " Brown gushed, recalling his proposal during an appearance on Celebrity Gogglebox in the U.K. that same month.

According to America's Got Talent alumna, McPhee popped the question while they were on a getaway in Berkshire. "There were rose petals everywhere, a log fire, a hotel — which was Cliveden,' she added. "It was very romantic. I love flowers."
