The charm of rural Ireland caught the attention of a couple rather out of the ordinary - supreme goth Marilyn Manson and his new wife Dita, a stripper.
The couple - real name Brian Warner and Heather Sweet - were originally rumoured to marry in Kilkenny, but the place eventually chosen was Gurteen Le Paor mansion outside the south Tipperary village of Kilsheelan.
Guests at the lavish €700,000 bash on Saturday include Madonna, Guy Ritchie, Lisa Marie Presley, Johnny Depp and Jean Paul Gaultier.
While the self-proclaimed 'God Of Fuck' is known for his out-to-shock anti-religious statements, the marriage was by all accounts a relatively traditional affair, with a Wilde-Victorian theme. The wedding breakfast was said to consist of a spit-roasted pig followed by lobster, oysters, wild Irish smoked salmon and crab.
The bride wore a €100,000 Vivienne Westwood-designed outfit while the groom wore a dark designer Victorian suit. But not even his wedding could keep the make up and crazy contact lenses at bay.
