Nicole Richie marks wedding day with elephant surprise

Monday December 13, 2010

It isn't the most likely of animals to feature in a wedding.

But Nicole Richie clearly wanted to treat her guests to something special when she hired a trained elephant to appear at her wedding.

On Saturday the daughter of music superstar Lionel Richie married Good Charlotte singer Joel Madden in a private ceremony consisting of 130 guests - and an elephant.

Although it is not exactly known in what way the animal contributed, it seems the rest of the day was steeped in tradition.

A source said: "They're going all out with the decor. Nicole wanted a memorable, elegant affair for only their closest friends and family on their special day."

The couple have been together for four years and have two children - Harlow, two, and one-year-old Sparrow.
