The big day has arrived and all are headed to the castle to see Tom and Katie say I Do. Check out Posh, Brooke, and JLo all dolled up as they leave their hotel to head to the big event. Katie was at the castle with Suri awaiting Tom's arrival. He came separately and gave a wave from his car. As expected, controversy around the couple and their big day is here. Apparently they have not gotten a marriage license yet so they may not even be married after this very expensive event that is taking place right now. Here's more:
The TomKat marital extravaganza was in danger of becoming a $2.5 million farce as the clock ticked past the deadline for the celebrity couple to present the paperwork that would make their marriage legal.
As the sun set yesterday on the majestic medieval castle where they plan to wed, there was no sign that Tom Cruise or his beloved bride, Katie Holmes, had applied for a civil marriage license.
The couple, who are expected to hold a Scientologist wedding service at Castello Odescalchi today, now face the distinct possibility their union might be recognized only by a church that believes in aliens - and not the law.
"Wedding? What wedding?" the parish priest of Bracciano, where the couple plan to wed, told the Times of London. "There has been no application for a civil marriage, let alone a religious ceremony."
Fabrizio D'Agostino, a spokesman for the Church of Scientology in Rome, said the church had not been contacted by anyone about the Cruise-Holmes wedding.
He said an exchange of vows with a Scientology rite is not legally recognized in Italy and would have to be preceded or followed by a civil union. Rome's mayor had given the couple until yesterday to bring the necessary papers to city hall.
U.S. citizens planning to marry in Italy must present their passports, birth certificates and an affidavit that there is no impediment to their marriage. The documents need to be translated into Italian and certified.
I say who cares. I think it's great these two are about to celebrate their love and new family. We can't wait to see Katie in her Armani gown. Stay tuned for more Tom and Katie wedding details and pics throughout the weekend.
