Tom and Katie's Wedding Snag

Tom and Katie's Wedding Snag

That Catholic wedding that Katie's folks were hoping for may not happen after all. The couple are supposedly tying the knot the weekend of Nov. 16 in the Italian village of Bracciano near Rome. Rumor has it they had planned two ceremonies, a traditional Catholic ceremony on Saturday followed by a Scientology event the next day. But now, it turns out that Tom's divorce is getting in the way. Here's more:

The priest with jurisdiction over the dreamy lakeside castle tipped as the chosen location for the wedding says his parish won't marry Cruise, and the mayor says she can't because the couple haven't done the official paperwork.

Mayor Patrizia Riccioni told Reuters she would like the wedding to take place, but that it was unlikely any celebration would be blessed with state recognition given that the couple have not provided the needed documents. "I don't think it will be legal," she said. "On an Italian level, there are papers and documents that we certainly don't have (for a wedding)."

But Cruise and Holmes' Los Angeles-based publicist dismissed the notion that the American couple's nuptials depended on official sanctioning by Italian authorities. "They are making all the proper and necessary arrangements for their marriage to be legal," said publicist Arnold Robinson.

The priest with responsibility for Bracciano has said that whatever ceremony Cruise and Holmes have, it cannot be Catholic because Cruise is divorced and does not have parish permission. "Cruise is divorced," Monsignor Nicola Fiorentini told Italian media. "Even if the actor were not divorced, another fundamental requirement to validate the rite would be missing: the authorization of the parish."

Tom isn't one to give up easily on these things. I'm sure he'll find a way around it. Guess we'll all just have to stay tuned....

as long as the previous marraiges are anulled, they can be married in a Catholic ceremony. & you can RENT a Catholic church to get married in, but it doesn't mean that the wedding is sactioned by the Church...

Anyone with enough money can get married in the Catholic Church, whether divorced or not. I know a man who has been divorced twice and has children from both ex-wives, and yet still managed to have a Catholic ceremony for his third wedding in Miami. And I know several "shot-gun" Catholic ceremonies that have been performed as well. There's always a priest who is willing...

The snag should be that she comes to her senses and realizes he's a psychopath.

eeewwww! i think katie is horribely un-attractive! she has two expressions & she talks out of the side of her mouth, which makes me crazy!! she reminds me of all the bratty mouth breathers I went to school with. I hate the whole "innocent girl next door" image. i refused to see any movie that she is in for years...excpet when i got really drunk & watched the new batman...

I used to love her. She was so cute and happy. I just hate him. I've never understood the fascination with him. IMO he's not that cute, not that great of an actor, and not really a big deal (I was of course too young for Top Gun) I boycott his films, I think he's an adultrer and I don't support that. Poor "Kate"

Just another sign that these two are not living in reality. To marry in the Catholic Church, you have to jump through several hoops, like Padraigin said (which is good - it's a BIG decision to get married!). Divorced people cannot have a Catholic ceremony. Tom and Katie are famous - that doesn't give them a free pass.

I love that they thought it would be easy to just go and have a Catholic wedding. Joey and I had to jump through hoops to get married and we're both devout Catholics!

What instrument does Tom play again? Oh yeah. The skin flute. BARK!

You forgot about Mimi..who claimed they never had sex because Tom wanted to keep his instrument "pure"? That was a classic crazy gay Tom history quote.

i forgot about tom's 1st marraige...the idea that they could just "go have a Catholic wedding" is dumb. you'd think that katie knew that...or at least that her folks would tell her that

Hmmm, supposedly Katie was raised a strict Catholic and is/was? a devout Catholic so she would know about the annulment procedures needed to marry a divorced person. Maybe this is a 'get out' clause for her? Maybe she came to her senses? Then again, maybe not. Such a strange situation...

oh poor tom, poor katie; why don't they just go to a courthouse & get it over with. maybe they could arrange a 'two for the price of one' deal while there. marriage license & divorce papers. simpletons.

Tom needs to get rid of that ugly hairdo and suit. Tom trying to look like Clay Aiken isn't cool.

The only reason they even want to have a Catholic ceremony is to make Katie's parents happy. It would be so funny if no one allows them to have a Catholic ceremony. After all they are obviously going to be devout Scientologists.

So...you were saying? I used to love Katie.My gf was obssesed with Tom.I mean so obsessed that if she heard another girl talking about having a crush on him, she'd get pissed. So I'm thinking, if that gf of mine, told me couple of weeks ago that she can't even stand Tom anymore...what dream is Katie talking about. I dreamed of being an astronaut, guess what?The idea of being alone in space, with zero possibility of j.o for several weeks and not so sure about that "first class flight" back home,kinda ruins that dream.I wanted to be a firefighter 2, but with the paycheck they're getting!!! Pfff
