What REALLY Went Down At Cameron Diaz And Benji Madden's Wedding...

What REALLY Went Down At Cameron Diaz And Benji Madden's Wedding...

An emotional speech, a backless wedding dress and 1AM noise complaints are just some of the tidbits emerging from Cameron's big day

Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden may have managed to keep their impending marriage under wraps on the run up but now that they've officially tied the knot, all the gossip from the big day is slowly starting to emerge... 

It has been revealed that at their wedding reception — held in a stunning candle-lit tent in the back garden of their LA home on the 5th of January — 42-year-old Cameron went non-tradish on us and delivered a very touching speech to her new Good Charlotte rocker hubby, which we're sure made a lot of guests reach for the tissues. 

In front of 127 guests, she reflected on her life before Benji: 'I waited because I didn't want to settle. Now I got the best man ever. My special man. He's mine.' 

What did we tell you? Not a dry eye in the house...

Other details on the couples big day are also starting to trickle through and yes; we've got some news on her all-important wedding dress.

Apparently Cam made her walk down the isle in a slinky and sparkly gown with a daring low-cut back but then swapped it in favour of a short sleeved frock for her reception; proof that two dresses are always better than one.

Later on into the reception, Benji is said to have remarked that although Cameron wasn't a Bridezilla in any way, shape or form, he 'only asked to be in control of two things: The music and the cake.' And, by the sounds of things, he did a pretty good job nailing down the play-list.

Not only did the iconic Lionel Richie — the father-in-law of the groom's twin brother, Joel — play the piano and serenade the newlyweds with some of his stellar hits but Benji also used his musical contacts to score in-demand DJ Patrick Belton to provide the soundtrack for the night. In fact, the party was so wild that complaints were made to the events security team by Cameron's neighbours for the excessive noise levels still going strong at 1AM. It looks like someone was scorned they didn't bag an invite...

As for the ceremony itself, we're sure that funny girl Cam would have loved the way it played out. Hilariously the ring bearer at the service, Benji's five-year-old nephew Sparrow Madden (the son of Nicole Richie and Joel — talk about being well connected, huh?) actually 'dropped the ring and it rolled around', resulting to Benji and his best man brother dropping to the floor on their knees scrambling around to find it, much to the delight of the guests.

Well, if there's one thing you can say about Cameron and Benji's wedding, it's that it's certainly going to be remembered.

Congrats again, Mr & Mrs Madden!
