18th November 2006 - Odescalchi Castle, Lake Bracciano
Katy Holmes and Tom Cruise chose the shores of one of the most beautiful lakes in Italy for a star studded ceremony in 2006. The wedding was held at sunset, in front of about 150 guests including Jennifer Lopez, Victoria Beckham Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, and Jim Carrey.
The location was an excellent choice for a twilight wedding, with the light of the setting sun and that of the candles used to decorate illuminating the still waters and dramatic, picturesque background of the lake and surrounding countryside.
The bride was radiant in a stunning white off the shoulder Armani gown, complete with ivory veil, bouquet of calla lilies and Swarovski crystal embellishment. The groom also wore Armani; a specially made tux in navy blue. The rings exchanged were white gold Cartier.
A wedding in Italy would not be a wedding in Italy without an excess of food, and the famous couple’s nuptials were no exception, with Italian antipasti preceding a multi coursed meal and a five tiered white chocolate wedding cake.
