That's old, borrowed and something blue sorted: Bride-to-be Kate Moss goes 70s style as she heads to rehearsal dinner with fiancé Jamie Hince

By Emily Sheridan

We're getting married the morning: A beaming Kate Moss snuggles up to her future husband Jamie Hince outside The Swan pub in Southrop in the Cotswolds

Tradition dictates a bride should wear something old, borrowed, new and blue when they walk down the aisle.

And it looks like Kate Moss may have managed to get at least three things right as she headed to her wedding rehearsal dinner in the Cotswolds this evening.

The beaming bride-to-be opted for a hippy-style turquoise dress, which looked like it could have been borrowed from her mother Linda's old clothing collection from the 70s.

The supermodel, 37, had co-ordinated her eye-catching dress with a pair of turquoise high-heeled boots.

Clearly excited ahead of their wedding on Friday afternoon, the couple gave paparazzi a rare treat by actually posing up for photographs outside The Swan pub in the Cotswolds village of Southrop.

Although used to photographers in her job as a model, it looked like Moss had to encourage her fiancé, known for being a more reluctant celebrity, to pose for the cameras.

Something blue: Moss was going for a hippy, vintage style as she arrived at the pub

The pair cuddled up and smiled outside the pub, one of the rare times they have actually posed for photographs as a couple.

Moss and her 42-year-old rocker groom headed to the 17th century, award-winning pub for dinner after attending a rehearsal at the St Margaret's parish church two and a half miles away in the village of Little Faringdon.

The pub was voted Best Restaurant in Britain last year by readers of Which? Good Food Guide and is famous for its signature dish, chargrilled 28-day hung Cotswold rib-eye steak with thrice cooked chips.

Earlier today, Hince and Moss were joined by their bridal party at the Grade II-listed, Norman church for a rehearsal of their ceremony with their vicar Rev Harry MacInnes.

When asked about whether or not he would be officiating recently, Rev MacInnes told the Mail: 'I couldn’t possibly comment. But I do know Kate and she is very much part of our community.'

Spotted outside the church were Moss's actress friend Sadie Frost with her 10-year-old daughter Iris, who is one of the bridesmaids, while her youngest son Rudy, seven, will be a page boy.

Also seen walking through the churchyard was Hince's 'best woman' and The Kills bandmate Allison Mosshart and Moss's hairdresser pal James Brown.

Moss and Hince are expected to wed in a Church of England ceremony on Friday afternoon, before retreating to the model's £2million mansion for the first of a three day £500,000 celebration.

Dubbed 'Moss-stock' by some of the locals, the newlyweds are expected to celebrate their nuptials with a festival-style reception lasting the whole weekend.

Also in the wedding party will be Moss's eight-year-old daughter Lila Grace - from her previous relationship with publisher Jefferson Hack, who will serve as chief bridesmaid.

Party planner Fran Cutler's daughter Mercy, Kate's half-sister from her father Peter's second marriage and artist Jake Chapman and model Rosemary Ferguson’s three children will complete Moss's young attendants.

During the religious ceremony, Hince's sister Sarah and Frost will do readings.
Meanwhile, the huge marquees are already in place for the big event in Moss's extensive back garden.

Ready for the party: The three-day celebration on Moss's Cotswolds estate is rumoured to be costing £500,000

Providing the catering over the weekend will be the team from Moss's favourite London restaurant China Tang at the Dorchester and the Ritz in Paris, while lorries of Grey Goose Vodka, Red Bull and Dom Perignon champagne have been ordered in to stock the bar.

The entertainment is rumoured to be provided by Iggy Pop, Beth Ditto, Snoop Dogg and Carl Barat - former Libertines bandmate of Moss's ex-boyfriend Pete Doherty.

Among the 300-strong guestlist will be Naomi Campbell, Vivienne Westwood, Stella and Mary McCartney retail tycoon Sir Philip Green, artist Tracey Emin, Rhys Ifans, Jude Law, Jo Wood and Jade Jagger.

Supporting the newlyweds will be Kate's father Peter, her mother Linda and her partner Geoff Collman and Jamie's parents William and Carole.
