Tom Parker recently walked down the aisle with his now-wife Kelsey Hardwick, and the newlyweds were surrounded by family and friends… At least most of them.
Parker revealed that some of his bandmates from The Wanted didn’t bother to show up at his wedding, which took place at Ridge Farm in Surrey. We’re looking at you, Siva Kaneswaran and Nathan Sykes. On the bright side, Max George and Jay McGuiness were there to show their support during Parker’s big day.
“I emailed all the boys a few months ago and asked them to be ushers. As we’ve not all been together since 2014, I thought my wedding might have been a nice moment for it. Siva and Nathan said they’d like to but they didn’t know what they were doing at that time. Then it got closer and I needed their suit sizes. Siva said no and Nathan didn’t reply. It is what it is,” Parker told OK! Magazine.
Yikes! It seems like relations are possibly at an all time low isn’t it? Pun intended. But it’s all good though. Parker did say he was okay with how everything turned out as the ones who really matter showed up. He added, “We all got on in the band, but I was closer to Max and Jay; it was usually us three who went out and got smashed on tour. I’m happy they were there.”
Hardwick looked every inch the glowing bride in a plunging white lace dress with a matching veil. Standing next to her, Parker opted for a grey suit and cream tie. In speaking with the publication, the couple shared that it was love at first sight.
“It was literally love at first sight. I saw him outside a nightclub in London and I grabbed my friend and said: ‘Oh my god, I love him’“, the actress recalled. “He’s the love of my life. The boys always say we’re the boy and girl version of each other, which is why it works.” Parker added, “It was instant. I knew as soon as I saw her that I saw her as the mother of my children.”

The Wanted rose to fame in 2009 but the band decided to go on a hiatus in 2014 to allow each member to pursue his own personal endeavour. Are you still hopeful that the 5-piece group will reunite?
Regardless, congrats to the newlyweds!
