Another New Year wedding was Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden! It all happened at their Beverly Hills mansion on Monday 6 January. We’re still waiting for wedding snaps – so this pic of them pecking on the lips is all we’re getting for now.
Glamour magazine reports the pair, who have been dating since May, are thought to have got engaged just before Christmas. The 35-year-old rocker and 42-year-old actress tied the knot in a Jewish ceremony just after sunset – with around 130 guests including bridesmaids Drew Barrymore and Nicole Richie (married to Benji’s twin Joel and reportedly the matchmaker of the bride and groom). Nicole and Joel’s son Sparrow was the ringbearer who apparently dropped the ring and had the groom and his father the best man down on their knees searching for it, with the guests in fits of laughter.
Reports have emerged that Cameron delivered a touching speech to her new husband and explained why he was ‘The One’ in front of family and friends at the reception. “I waited because I didn’t want to settle, now I got the best man ever. My special man. He’s mine.” the blonde beauty said with a big smile!
Amazing that they managed to organise a wedding in just one month – of course they had the help of a celebrity wedding planner – but still impressive!
Maybe because they have known each other for years, their romance was very short – and the quick engagement was apparently a result of Cameron’s wish to have children pretty soon – Benji is a traditional guy apprently and wanted to do things the ‘right’ way so popped the question. Listen out for the pitter patter of little feet soon then!
