Here at Brides we are always excited about the news of an impending wedding, and the news of the engagement of Orlando Bloom and model Miranda Kerr came as no exception. We appear to have been trumped however by the Miranda's home town of Gunnedah in New South Wales, Australia. So delighted are they that their local-girl-come-good is marrying a Hollywood actor that the Mayor has offered a street parade and a local brass band free of charge for the couple if they decide to get married in the town. Something tells me it won't tip the scales but we shall see.
