7 APRIL 2009

No wonder Bruce Willis and his beautiful 29-year-old wife Emma Heming looked pleased with life when they stepped out in San Francisco recently.

Their first engagement as a married couple since becoming man and wife in a romantic Caribbean celebration was to the Sonoma Film Festival, where the Die Hard actor was honoured with a lifetime achievement award.

Emma, a model who got to know 54–year-old Bruce when he picked her to appear with him in Perfect Stranger, was still glowing with happiness after their nuptials.

Her radiant appearance in a super chic scarlet evening gown with crossover detail was one of the highlights of the evening.

Still clearly in the honeymoon mood Bruce had matched the handkerchief in his top pocket to the colour of his bride's dress, and was bursting with pride as he escorted his leading lady to the big occasion.

The couple wed on March 21 on the Turks and Caicos Islands, which neighbour the Bahamas, in an intimate ceremony witnessed by Bruce's ex-wife Demi Moore and her husband Ashton Kutcher. The island celebration was followed by a civil ceremony back home in Beverly Hills six days later.
