Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel have finally shown photographs from their Italian wedding. These have been published in People magazine's latest issue.
The cover of the magazine's November issue shows Timberlake, in a Tom Ford tuxedo, in the background with 30 year old Biel sitting in a custom-designed petal pink Giambattista Valli Haute Couture gown and wearing Martin Katz earrings. The pair tied the knot at the Borgo Egnazia resort in Italy on 19 October and the 31 year old actor admitted it was "a really special evening". To this Biel added: "It was a total fantasy experience".
The Friends with Benefits actor also revealed he accompanied his bride down the aisle to the musical strains of a romantic ballad he wrote exclusively for his wife.
"It was an original piece I wrote specifically for the evening and for her," he continued, "It was a lot to ask of them to travel, so we figured we'd give our guests a good party!"
Meanwhile, Timberlake, whose introduction to the spotlight was as a member of the popular boy-band N'Sync, did not invite two of his former band mates to the wedding as he feared a reunion would overshadow the ceremony.
The US Weekly reported that only JC Chasez and Chris Kirkpatrick attended the lavish event, while Lance Bass and Joey Fatone were not present. In any case, according to a source, Timberlake and Bass are reportedly not the best of friends. However, that did not stop the latter from wishing the newly married couple.
"I just love that she's a guy's gal. [Biel] can get right in there and talk basketball, football and drink a beer with you, and that's what he needs. He needs someone who can hang with the guys," he said.
Timberlake was previously known for his high-profile relationships with singer Britney Spears and actress Cameron Diaz. Biel and Timberlake have been dating since 2007.
