Isla: "We are going to get married, really, really, even more now than ever. We have been talking about it and we have been very close, but it has been difficult to plan. It is very important to me to have a beautiful ritual celebrated with all my family and friends, and to feel part of a community. And when you are in the public eye, to keep that private and to make it happen without it being really visible is really difficult."
