Tom & Katie’s Close Encounters

by | 17th, November 2006

LIKE Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes and Richard Dreyfuss in Close Encounters of the Third Kind, we are not alone.

Anorak is in Rome for the wedding of the year. With 500 other guests massed in the Italian capital for the do, there is no space to be alone.

The Mail watches the great and good arrive. Jim Carey, Jennifer Lopez and Brooke Shields are already in town. Up in the skies, John Travolta is jetting in on his private Boeing 747.

Tomorrow, Her Poshness and her footballer are arriving.

But before the wedding must come the stag and hen dos. Few would miss the chance to see Holmes tottering along the streets of Rome, a pink Stetson on her head, a massive plastic phallus tied around her waist and a song about a man from Chorlton-cum-Hardy playing on her lips.

Or of seeing Tom enjoying a round of golf with the lads, before all the gang (dressed in matching orange T-shirts: “Tom’s wedding – it’s out of this world”) hit Rome’s lap-dancing clubs and the local curry house.

But this is a joint hen and stag do. And, as the Mail says, 60 guests are being driven in blacked-out mini vans to restaurant Nino by the city’s Spanish Steps. There they enjoy champagne and a three-course meal.

What goes on next, we are not at liberty to divulge. But the Express looks at “Tom’s wacky wedding”. It sees the Castello Odescalchi in Bracciano, the venue, decked out in six thousand scented candles smelling of roses and coffee.

The bride, dressed in white, will approach her true love. The room will be bathed in a brilliant, ethereal white light. The wedding march (re – mi – do – do (octave lower) – sol) will punctuate the air.

And Tom Cruise marries for the third time…
