No, a spouse of a British Citizen doesn't have to wait for a year after they have ILR before applying, but they do have to be in the UK 3 years.

So the 14th July 2010 is probably the earliest as I guess you have no legal stay between 4th June 2007 and 13th July 2007 that you could use as your start date for the 3 years.

On the 3rd anniversary of entry in the UK, which happens to be on 14-Jul-2010.
