The Boomtown Rats rocker will reportedly tie the knot with the French actress in August (15) in a small ceremony at St Mary Magdalene & St Lawrence church near his home in Kent, England.

The venue has many connections to the Geldof family as the rocker's marriage to Yates was blessed there in 1986 and Yates' funeral was held in the church after her death in 2000.

His late daughter Peaches wed rocker Thomas Cohen at the chapel in 2012, and a funeral service was held there last year (14) after she died, aged 25.

Geldof's pal Jerry Hall revealed he had proposed to Marine, his girlfriend of 19 years, last May (14).
