Showbiz friends attend Rufus Wainwright's wedding

Friday August 24, 2012

Rufus Wainwright has married his theatre producer fiancé Jorn Weisbrodt at his home in Montauk, New York.

The Canadian singer-songwriter and his partner exchanged vows on Thursday in front of 250 guests including Yoko Ono, Star Wars actress Carrie Fisher, Mark Ronson and Lou Reed.

The wedding breakfast was held at the Clam Bar in Napeague, where each guest was given a jar of local plum jam inscribed with 'Rufus+Jorn's Hochzeit'. The food included lobster rolls and clam chowder.

It had previously been reported that Rufus and Jorn had invited guests to join them in leaping into the ocean after the ceremony, but it is not known if the plan went ahead.

Rufus and Jorn, who announced their engagement in November 2010, are parents to one-year-old daughter Viva Katherine.
