and former Spice Girl Mel B
are reportedly set to wed in September. The couple - who met at a party in Beverly Hills last month - have reportedly booked the plush Roosevelt Hotel, in Los Angeles, for their "dream wedding". Mel, 31, and Murphy - who is 14 years her senior - are reportedly planning to tie the knot in an intimate ceremony attended by just close family and friends.
However, the pair have drawn up a star-studded guest list, which includes Whitney Houston
and British actor Max Beesley
, for their wedding party. A source told Daily Star newspaper: "Mel just wants her and Eddie's close family to be there for the simple blessing. But they will be inviting their friends to a lavish wedding breakfast reception at the venue afterwards."
Both Mel and the Shrek
star have been married before. Murphy divorced his wife Nicole Mitchell Murphy - who he has five children with - in May after 12 years of marriage. Mel - better known as Scary Spice during her time in the Spice Girls - married dancer Jimmy Gulzar in 1998 but the couple got divorced three years later. They have a seven-year-old daughter Phoenix-Chi.
