Paradise weddings of the stars
1 JULY 2004
When it comes to choosing a stunning backdrop against which to plight their troth, celebrities tend to have something of an edge, given the size of their paycheques. These days, however, a host of new resorts specialising in exotic nuptials makes it easier than ever to say I do in paradise. Take inspiration from these six celebrity unions held on beaches, cliff tops and in other alternative locations around the world
A rustic mountain-top church ceremony followed by a star-studded reception at a luxury hotel those were the key ingredients for Corrs drummer Caroline Corr's dream wedding to Dublin property tycoon Frank Woods on the Spanish island of Majorca.
The backdrop was Deia, a small village on the western shore on the Mediterranean isle. With a population of about 842, the municipality, connected to the island's capital, Palma, by a winding road, has a number of ancient churches and monasteries among its many attractions. And it was in one of the town's beautiful hillside churches lit only by candles after a sudden rainstorm caused a power failure that Caroline and Frank's Roman Catholic service was held, attended by a small group of family and friends.
The lavish reception which followed saw invitees gathering at the five-star La Residencia hotel, once owned by Virgin Airlines billionaire Richard Branson, who refurbished the historic building to create a star-worthy getaway. There, the A-list guests, including U2s Bono and The Edge, dined on local cuisine, including lobster and the traditional chilled soup gazpacho.
