Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban said "yes"
Australian actress Nicole Kidman and country music singer Keith Urban pledged their faith in one another on Sunday in Manly's chapel, a gorgeous seaside resort overlooking Sydney Bay - AFP, Rompres reported.
Nicole Kidman wore an ivory-colored dress and came to the altar at her father Anthony's arm.
His sister, Antonia, served as the bridesmaid, while the actress's adoptive daughter, 13-year-old Isabella, was one of the bridesmaids.
A few hours earlier, the priest who united their destinies, Father Paul Coleman assured that the two are "very in love", which promises a "simple but sincere ceremony".
The inevitable paparazzi, who came from all over the world, surrounded the cathedral, but were kept at a respectable distance by the demands of security firms.
In order to reduce the pressure exerted by the photojournalists, in a rare gesture, the newlyweds agreed to broadcast photos from the ceremony for free through the Australian AAP news agency.
Special security measures were taken in the area surrounding the chapel, which is located inside the College St. Patrick, an old Catholic seminarian. A large tent was set up to accommodate the 230 guests, including Russell Crowe, Hugh Jackman - both of Australian origin, director Baz Luhrmann, Nicole's old friend, actress Naomi Watts and media mogul Rupert Murdoch , owner of Fox Studios.
Nicole Kidman has been married for ten years to actor Tom Cruise, a scientist. This first union, which ended in 2001, was never recognized by the church, so the movie star could, however, marry Keith Urban according to the Catholic rite, which recognizes only one marriage.
Isabella, 13, and Connor, 11, both of Nicole's adopted children during their marriage to Tom Cruise were present at the ceremony.
Nicole Kidman enjoys considerable popularity in Australia.
Keith Urban, one of the stars of country music in the United States, where he has lived since 1992, is almost unknown in Australia, where he lived for many years. Born in New Zealand, he grew up on a state farm in the Australian state of Queensland, in the northeast of the country.
Nicole Kidman, 39, and Keith Urban, 38, met in January 2005 in Los Angeles during an official dinner hosted by the Australian Government.
Believing some statements in the press, it is possible that the islands of Fiji offer them the environment for spending the honeymoon.
