Kidman Flies In 150,000 Flowers
LATEST: Australian bride-to-be NICOLE KIDMAN is flying in 150,000 pale pink and white roses from Europe for her Sunday wedding (25JUN06) to country singer KEITH URBAN. The roses will decorate the walls at the Royal Motor Yacht Club in the exclusive suburb of Point Piper on Sydney Harbour, where the pair are set to hold their wedding reception.
