Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban, Wed

After the famed break-up of Hollywood's longest standing couple, Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise, it really was great to hear of Kidman's marriage again with singer boyfriend, Keith Urban. Pictures of Kidman returning  to the aisle after 12 long years were making frantic rounds amongst  the paparazzi.

The Nicole Kidman wedding was an event without much fanfare. It was a quiet wedding reception without the glitz and glamour that is characteristic of Hollywood. The two had been engaged earlier in the month of May. The wedding ceremony was a traditional catholic wedding ceremony and took place on a cliff-top Gothic Church in Manly, Sydney. The guest- list included the who's who of Australia, Rupert Murdoch the media baron, Russell Crowe, Naomi Watts, and Hugh Jackman.

However, what was worth watching was the way the crowds mobbed her stretch-limousine, right from the moment she stepped out of her Sydney mansion. Newspapers printed headlines heralding Kidmania in Manly! The media followed the entire procession in helicopters and got great live coverage of the event.

Kidman's adopted children, from her previous marriage with Tom Cruise flew from the United States to attend the marriage. Isabella, 13 was the bridesmaid and Connor 11, the usher. The wedding bells rang at 6.25 pm as a symbol of the couple uniting in matrimony. The family priest was very optimistic of the couples’ chances as he felt they were mature and understood each other very well.
