Nicole Kidman And Keith Urban’s Wedding

June 26th, 2006 // 17 Comments

In case you weren’t aware of it, Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban were married yesterday in Australia (US Weekly actually called their post on the wedding a US Exclusive – WTF?). The couple was married in an intimate ceremony in an Austrailian clifftop chapel which was attended by close family and a bunch of famous faces. Nicole clutched a bouquet of white roses and wore a white Balenciaga gown and veil. The above photo is the only photo taken from the wedding that was released to the press.

“We just want to thank everyone in Australia and around the world who have sent us their warm wishes,” the couple said in a brief statement released with the photo.

A beaming Kidman, accompanied by her father, Antony, arrived at the church in Manly in a cream Rolls Royce limousine after driving from her harborside mansion across the iconic Sydney Harbor Bridge — followed all the way by media helicopters.

She held a bouquet and wore drop pearl earrings, her face partly obscured by a willowy veil — in keeping with the traditional theme expected. She smiled and waved to well-wishers gathered outside the venue and her house.

Her blonde hair hung around her shoulders. Australian Associated Press reported the gown was designed by Nicolas Ghesquiere for Balenciaga.

The Gothic-style St. Patrick’s College building was dramatically floodlit for the dusk-to-evening ceremony, held in a small chapel on the compound. The guests then moved to a marquee erected on the grounds for the reception.

Kidman’s adopted daughter with ex-husband Tom Cruise, Isabella, 13, and sister Antonia arrived in a separate limousine dressed as bridesmaids. Cruise and Kidman’s adopted son, Connor, 11, also was expected to participate in the ceremony.

Australian movie star Hugh Jackman was the first guest to arrive, though his black European sedan almost missed the entrance. The car stopped and reversed back to enter the venue.

Kidman’s mother, Janelle, was next, stopping briefly and rolling down her car’s window to smile for photographers. White minibuses and a fleet of black luxury sedans brought other guests, including media mogul Rupert Murdoch and wife Wendi Deng. Australians
Russell Crowe and Naomi Watts were expected to attend.

Nicole Kidman cried all the way to the church and throughout the ceremony, while Urban wept when he saw a bride described as “ethereal”

Hugh Jackman sang at the reception. He was part of a musical line-up that went way beyond your standard wedding fare. The Boy From Oz star sang Peter Allen‘s Tenterfield Saddler at the reception. Urban himself serenaded his bride with one of his own songs, Making Memories Of Us, which ends with the lyrics:

And I’m gonna love you like nobody loves you

And I’ll earn your trust makin’ memories of us

A reader sent in this info from the wedding:

Keith said a beautiful speech. And sang a gorgeous number. The couple did a waltz, then broke out into a boogie. Neil Finn sang. Rupert Murdock fell over and almost set the place alight. (The place was filled with candles). The couple looked beautiful. It was like a fairytale.

    the bump is noticeably hidden…

    I think these are actually stills from the movie The Corpse Bride. Good grief she needs a tan. And those bridesmaids dresses look horrific!

  3. Wish them a long happy marriage.

    Hope it works out for them, but the problem will be dueling hot careers. You can’t do 6 movies per year, or tour 60 countries in a week supporting an album, and keep a relationship going. If she’s doing movies and he’s touring….that will be the issue.

  5. What a beautiful couple. I wish her tons of happiness. She deserves it after being married to that freak, Tom Cruise. Keith Urban is quite the catch, too!

  6. Cheesy

    Now that she’s not married to Crazy Cruise, maybe she’s got a shot at a good marriage. Let’s hope.

    Let’s also hope that now she’s going to ease up on the Botox. It really isn’t falttering.

    oh he is soooooooooooo dreamy!!!

    I wish them a very long and happy marriage. It may be a real possibility, now that she is married to someone other than that Complete Freak she used to be married to.

  9. Tansy

    Hmmmm, not loving the one poofy sleeve, one shoulder bare look, and Small Fry is right about those scary bridesmaid dresses. I don’t know. She’s definitely over-Botoxed, and I’ve never been crazy about the blonde on her. She has gorgeous skin, though.

  10. Marnie

    I wish them both well. Everyone deserves to find their happiness. Even if hers starts with Botox injections and his ends with hair highlights.

  11. Rumor

    Good luck and best wishes!

    Best of luck. Now was that not nice. Out in the open.

    I agree Charlie, she deserves it. I know Tom is so jealous. Who is going to bet he and Katie won’t marry? They say she’s moving to Nashville. Good choice.

    How about some pix of Keith and not of pale and ugly What is he thinkin! Oh well she will be the nail in his career and he will be sitting on her movie sets with water and SPF 989 in his hand waiting on her hand and foot. LOL

    Older news, but I dont think Meade Skelton is liking this very much. He’s the guy who sings the song ‘Nicole, Will You Marry Me?’ He wrote it for her.
