British actress Kate Beckinsale will exchange marriage vows with director beau Len Wiseman next month (MAY04), according to reports.

The Underworld beauty, 30, has been dating Wiseman since they met on the set of the Vampire action thriller in 2003 and had planned to tie the knot at New Year (31DEC03), but had no room in her frantic schedule.

But now the happy couple plan to stage a romantic ceremony in Wiseman's native Los Angeles, where the pair live with Beckinsale's daughter LILY, four.

Guests at the nuptials will include Kate's actress mother JUDY LOE, and a special mention to her late father RICHARD BECKINSALE will be made during proceedings.

The SERENDIPITY star hit the headlines when her romance with Wiseman was first announced as she had only just split with her daughter's father, British star Michael Sheen.
