Carey + Cannon Plan $4 Million Wedding
MARIAH CAREY and her new husband NICK CANNON will stage a $4 million (GBP2 million) wedding ceremony in New York when they renew their vows later this summer (08), according to reports.
The pair wed in secret at Carey's Bahamas retreat last month (30Apr08), and the pop superstar has been desperate to walk down the aisle for an encore.
The extravagant public event will boast a guest list including supermodel Naomi Campbell, according to MSNBC.com.
A source says, "(Mariah) wants over 2,000 guests and the budget will be well over $4 million (GBP2 million) and she'll have at least 14 bridesmaids.
"It's going to be held in New York City in the next six weeks. Picture a wedding on the scale of Liza Minnelli's (to David Gest) and you'll be right on track."
The Hero hitmaker announced plans to host an annual ceremony with Cannon last week (13May08) while talking to U.S. TV show host Ellen DeGeneres.
Carey married her first husband, music executive Tommy Mottola, in a star-studded New York ceremony in 1993. The pair divorced in 1998.
