Oscar-winning actress Nicole Kidman and country music star Keith Urban want a "normal wedding" like any other couple, the singer's manager said today.
Kidman, born in Hawaii to Australian parents and Urban, born in New Zealand and raised in Australia, have been swamped with attention since they jetted into Sydney days ago and confirmed their plans to wed.
"Nicole and Keith just want a normal wedding and to celebrate with their friends and family," Urban's manager Rob Potts said today. "They're both just happy to have their family around them at this time and both are really excited and very happy about the wedding."
But with scores of reporters and photographers, and at least half a dozen helicopters following their every move, the Kidman-Urban nuptials will likely be far from normal.
Details of the event have been closely guarded - with many reported guests saying they don't know when or where the wedding is to take place - prompting a flurry of speculation about the ceremony's finer points.
Several pages of today's newspapers were filled with possible details of the affair, including what the bride would wear, who might be on the guest list, and what will they eat.
Around 230 guests are expected to watch the pair exchange vows at a gothic-style stone church overlooking Sydney's iconic Manly beach shortly after dusk tomorrow.
Some media have predicted that Kidman's sister Antonia and longtime friend Naomi Watts will be among the bridesmaids, and that Moulin Rouge director Baz Luhrmann will have a hand in filming the wedding.
