Singer-actor Justin Timberlake sang his hit track “My Love” to his bride Jessica Biel at their secret wedding which reportedly cost the couple a whopping £4 million.
The 31-year-old singer married Ms. Biel at Cala Masciola beach in Puglia, Italy, on Friday in front of 80 guests, reported Sun online. The couple even had a special staircase built next to the ancient church so that Ms. Biel could make a grand entrance.
Mr. Timberlake had blinding spotlights turned on rubber-neckers hanging around the church, to avoid spotlight.
“Powerful lights were focused away from the church to keep prying eyes away. There were also masses of security guards outside the venue,” said a source.
To dodge the paparazzi, many guests flew from Los Angeles via Germany to Italy on charter flights.
“Even the guests were kept in the dark about the location until the last minute. They were flown out from the States on Monday and landed in Frankfurt with no further instructions. They were then given an itinerary and tickets to the south of Italy. That was part of a ploy to keep fans confused about the final destination,” the source added.
A highlight of the couple’s big day was Mr. Timberlake’s specially rehearsed dance for his new wife. The elaborate operation was covered by U.S. magazine People, which is said to have paid £3 million for exclusive picture rights.
The couple had been dating for almost five years and were engaged for past 10 months.
