Cheryl Cole will have a party to celebrate her surprise wedding later this week.

The 'Call My Name' singer married French restauranteur Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini on July 7 in a small ceremony in Mustique but is planning a bigger event with friends and family this week.

A source told ''Cheryl just wants to share her happiness with those closest to her and will be throwing a party at some point later this week.

''She won't be renewing her vows or having another ceremony as has been reported, or even wearing a wedding dress.

''She's been so busy that she hasn't had time to see everyone since she flew back home, so this is the perfect opportunity for her and Jean-Bernard to catch up with their nearest and dearest.''

The source also explained how Cheryl's romance hasn't been as fast moving as most people think, and she has known Jean-Bernard since 2013.

The source said: ''They actually got to know each other at the end of last year when Cheryl was in South Africa, but they were just friends then. They got together earlier this year.''

Meanwhile Cheryl's union with Jean-Bernard is yet to be made official as it has not yet been registered, because officials at the Caribbean births, marriages and deaths department reportedly don't understand all of the names listed for Jean-Bernard, who is listed on the marriage certificate as ''Jean-Bernard Justin Antoine Aime Bastien Thierry''.
