It's a done deal - they're married

Thanks to People magazine, details of Manson and Dita's wedding are already available:

Rocker Marilyn Manson married his longtime girlfriend, burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese, on Saturday in front of some 60 guests as fans and well wishers gathered outside.

The ceremony took place in Kilsheelan, County Tipperary, Ireland, at Castle Gurteen, the home of the couple's friend, artist Gottfried Helnwein. Contrary to rumors that the pair would exchange their blood during the ceremony, they actually traded vows they wrote for each other.

Manson (real name Brian Warner), 36, gave Von Teese (real name: Heather Sweet), 33, a wedding band from William Harold Jewelers in Newport Beach, Calif., where he also got her 7-carat, antique, European round-cut diamond engagement ring. The groom's wedding band is a custom-made platinum ring with onyx inlay from Dana Schneider.

The rocker wore a John Galliano black silk taffeta tuxedo with velvet trim and a Stephen Jones hat, while Von Teese donned a royal purple silk taffeta Vivienne Westwood gown complete with train and petticoats worn over a Mr. Pearl couture corset. Her outfit was accessorized with a tri-corn hat by Stephen Jones and shoes by Christian Louboutin.

Art film director Alejandro Jodorowsky, a longtime friend of the groom, married the couple in the non-denominational ceremony. German singer and bandleader Max Raabe provided the music. The guests included C.S.I.'s Eric Szmanda.

The wedding celebration began on Friday night with a 9 p.m. supper in the Conservatory of the Kilshane House, the Regency country home where many of the wedding guests stayed.

Manson and Von Teese began dating on his 32nd birthday Jan. 5, 2001. He proposed to her in their Los Angeles home on March 22, 2004. This is the first marriage for both.

To see photos from the day, we'll have to wait for the March issue of Vogue magazine, out on 21st February. Unless any of the guests have a few snaps they're allowed to share that is.

Gottfried Helnwein is the official wedding photographer. We expected Perou but his aversion to wedding photography changed things. But at least he can now enjoy himself as a regular guest.

Wedding Weekend

Manson and Dita's wedding is ready to rock and roll and will be a 'four day wedding extravaganza' - four days, that's a bit tantric. It's taking place in Ireland, from Friday to Monday.

There could be snow, there could be mist, there could be rain, but I'm sure they'll have fun. Film director Alejandro Jodorowski will perform the wedding ceremony.

Everything remains (mostly) top secret. A traditional Irish banquet is being prepared for the wedding guests. Security will be tight and there's even a place for guests to park their helicopters (just in case).

Some details on the preparations here: Limerick Post.
