Hollywood beauty Uma Thurman and her millionaire fiance Arpad Busson are pulling out all stops to make sure that their wedding will be a grand affair and have gone ahead and booked the Kensington Palace, the former home of Princess Diana for the ceremony.
Thurman, 39, and Busson, 46, have booked the palace's famous Orangery for June next year and the guest list is expected to include Sir Elton John, Sting, Claudia Schiffer and Liz Hurley, Daily Mail reported.
"Uma wants to get married like a princess. She already has an eight-carat diamond ring and now she is planning to get married in a palace," a friend close to Thurman said.
"They want to have it entirely to themselves, so as well as the 11,000 pounds ceremony and venue hire fee, they have hired the rest of the palace to ensure it's completely private," the friend added.
Thurman met Busson in 2007 when she was newly single after breaking up with hotelier Andre Balazs and he too had just split from supermodel Elle Macpherson.
This will be the 'Kill Bill' actress' third walk down the aisle as she has previously been married to actors Gary Oldman and Ethan Hawke, with whom she has two children, Maya Ray, 10, and seven-year-old son Levon Roan.
This will be Busson's first marriage though he has two sons, Flynn, 10, and Aurelius, 5, with 44-year-old Macpherson who he dated from 1996 to 2005.
