Rock-Star Wedding at Helnwein's Irish Castle
The nuptials of schock rocker Marilyn Manson and burlesque queen Dita Von Teese were never going to be conventional, but as Hamish Bowles discovered as he tracked the celebrations from Los Angeles to Tipperary, they were also filled with high drama and high style. ...

This motif also decorates the Wedgwood side plates and is woven into the black lace curtains that hang at the high windows of the principal reception rooms and invest them with a disquieting, Edgar Allan Poe air of mystery...
A smoky-eyed Lisa Marie Presley, in Goth black chiffon, is making her first visit to Ireland. "I felt the magic the moment I landed." she says...
