妮可·基德曼与凯斯·厄班成婚

2006-07-01 09:33

  Church bells rang out over Nicole Kidman's hometown Sunday to announce her marriage to country music star Keith Urban in a lavish but intimate ceremony attended by relatives, close friends and a smattering of(1) Hollywood stars.

  The beaming bride wore a flowing(2) white Balenciaga gown and pearl drop earrings. Her cream Rolls-Royce limousine(3) drove from her waterfront mansion across the iconic Sydney Harbor Bridge, through streets lined with cheering fans.

  Kidman, accompanied by her father, Antony, smiled and waved to well-wishers outside the Gothic(4)-style St. Patrick's College building, which was dramatically floodlit(5) for the evening ceremony.

  The nuptials(6) were held in a small chapel on the compound(7) atop cliffs overlooking a beach.

  Urban, a Grammy-winning country music star, wore a black suit with a white rose in his lapel(8) matching a bouquet clutched(9) by Kidman.

  The ceremony was private, amid intense public interest and speculation about the details. The pastor said the Oscar-winning actress and Nashville, Tenn.-based singer would have a traditional Roman Catholic service.

  It was Urban's first marriage. Kidman and Tom Cruise divorced in 2001 after 10 years of marriage.

  The couple released an official photograph showing them smiling and holding hands.

  "We just want to thank everyone in Australia and around the world who have sent us their warm wishes," the newlyweds(10) said in a brief statement accompanying the photo.

  They were expected to spend their wedding night in Sydney before leaving for what local media said would be a Fiji resort honeymoon.

  Urban's manager said Saturday the couple had wanted a "normal" wedding.

  The guest list included Australian movie stars Russell Crowe, Hugh Jackman and Naomi Watts, and media mogul Rupert Murdoch.

  Some onlookers(11) climbed trees and the stone wall outside the compound trying to glimpse the activity inside.

  "Moulin Rouge" director Baz Luhrmann was expected to be in charge of the wedding video. A quartet(12) from the Sydney Symphony(13) Orchestra(14) was expected to perform, as was Jackman, who sprang to fame in the "X-Men" movies.

  周日,妮可·基德曼家乡的教堂钟声响起,宣告她与乡村歌星凯斯·厄班的结为夫妻。他们的婚礼豪华而亲密,仅有亲人、至交和少数几个好莱坞明星参加。

  春光洋溢的新娘身穿白色飘逸礼服,戴着水滴珍珠耳环。她从海滨寓所乘奶白色劳斯莱斯轿车出发,经过标志性建筑悉尼港口大桥,一路行驶在影迷们的欢呼中。

  基德曼在父亲安东尼的陪同下,微笑向圣帕特里克学院外的祝福者挥手。这座歌特式建筑因为晚上的婚礼被照得异常光亮。

  婚礼在临海悬崖顶部的一座小教堂中举行。

  曾获格莱美奖的乡村音乐明星厄班身穿黑色套装,翻领上扎了一朵白色玫瑰,用来搭配基德曼手中的花束。

  婚礼很小型,却引来大批公众关注和对婚礼细节的猜测。牧师说奥斯卡最佳女演员奖获得者和田纳西纳什维尔歌手将举行传统的罗马天主教婚礼。

  这次是厄班的初婚。基德曼和汤姆·克鲁斯在十年婚姻后于2001年离婚。

  这对夫妻公布了一幅照片,片中二人手牵手微笑着。

  新人随照片发布了一篇简短的声明:“我们要感谢每个在澳大利亚和世界其它地方真诚祝福我们的人。”

  他们将会在悉尼度过新婚夜,之后前往当地媒体所说的斐济胜地度蜜月。

  厄班的经纪人周六称他们希望有一个“正常”的婚礼。

  参加婚礼的有澳大利亚电影明星拉塞尔·克劳,休·杰克曼和娜奥米·沃茨,以及传媒巨头鲁珀特·默多克。

  一些人为了一睹场内活动不惜爬上树和石头围墙。

  《红磨坊》导演巴兹·鲁赫曼将负责婚礼摄影。悉尼交响乐团的四重奏将在婚礼进行演奏,凭借在《X战警》中表演成名的杰克曼也会演出庆祝。
