The British editor of celebrity journal Hello! has denied the magazine scored free photos from the wedding of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes by agreeing to write positively about the Church of Scientology.
RONNIE WHELAN insists the rumour "is categorically not true" but doesn't dispute her magazine obtained pictures of the star-studded Italian wedding last month (18NOV06) for nothing.
The Church of Scientology, of which Cruise is a devout member, is normally blasted in the British press, but Hello! carefully described the "simple yet eloquent 20-minute Scientology ceremony" enjoyed by the Hollywood couple.
The magazine also described how Cruise and his best man, Scientology leader DAVID MISCAVIGE, stood facing Holmes as she walked down the aisle "in accordance with (their) religious beliefs."
