Tom and Katie jet off to Maldives after fairytale wedding

Newlyweds Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have jetted off on honeymoon to the Maldives after a fairytale wedding in a 15th century castle in Italy.

The guest list read like a Who's Who of Hollywood as Cruise and Holmes tied the knot in Bracciano on Saturday.

There were fireworks inside and out too as the couple sealed their vows with a "never-ending kiss". The kiss lasted so long it caused guests to shout "stop, stop!" said Giorgio Armani, who attended the wedding and designed the outfits of the bride, the groom and their baby, Suri.

The couple flew out of Rome on Sunday morning for a honeymoon in the Maldives, said Ciampino airport spokesman Adriano Franceschetti. The rest of the wedding party was due to fly to Los Angeles later on Sunday.

The evening wedding ceremony was performed by a Scientology minister in front of more than 150 relatives and friends, the couple's publicists said.

Oil-fed torches and tiny candles flickered from the battlements and windows of the Odescalchi castle in the lakeside town as the couple and guests gathered for the ceremony in the town about 27 miles northwest of Rome. Suri, dressed in white, arrived in her mother's arms.

The wedding party included Cruise's two children, Isabella and Connor, from the actor's previous marriage to Nicole Kidman, the publicists said in a statement. The best man was Cruise's best friend David Miscavige and the matron of honour was Holmes' sister Nancy Blaylock.

Holmes wore a black dress and boots before she changed into Armani's off-the-shoulder ivory silk gown. Her father, Martin Holmes, walked her down the aisle and she carried a bouquet of flowers made by Armani, including calla lilies.

Cruise, who sported dark shades and waved to fans as he rode through the castle gates in a van, wore a single breasted navy blue Armani handmade suit for the wedding, with an ivory silk French collar shirt of the same fabric as the bride's gown.
