Tamara Ecclestone has put her recent courtroom dramas well and truly behind her. After bravely giving evidence in the trial against her former boyfriend Derek Rose last month, the heiress is unwinding in Miami alongside her fiancé Jay Rutland.
The happy couple have been pictured relaxing and soaking up the sun at Casa Tua in Miami Beach, looking very much in love as they laughed and talked while gazing out to sea.
No doubt the hot topic of conversation was the couple”s impending nuptials, which are due to take place this summer in the south of France. It looks set to be an no-expense-spared event to match that of Tamara”s sister Petra, whose three-day extravaganza in 2011 is reported to have cost their father, Formula One billionaire Bernie Ecclestone, something in the region of £12million.
Tamara and former City stockbroker Jay announced their engagement in a world exclusive interview with ! Magazine in February. They were introduced by mutual friends in January and were together for one month before Jay popped the question.
Speaking about their whirlwind romance, Tamara said, “I don”t think the amount of time you are together has anything to do with it. All I know is that I have never felt more comfortable with anyone so quickly, or felt as happy as I feel right now.”
“The thing is, although this is going to sound crazy when I say it out loud, we”d already discussed the fact we wanted to get married, so even though it was a surprise when it happened, it wasn”t a total shock.
“I”ve never been in a relationship before where i”ve been able to be myself and feel so comfortable so quickly. When you find true love, why wait”
