Wedding at Castle de La Poer, owned by his German artist pal Gottfried Helnwein
SHOCK rocker Marilyn Manson flew into Ireland last night to tie the knot with burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese in a gothic fairytale wedding. The 36-year-old singer - real name Brian Warner - wed at Gurteen Le Poer Castle, County Tipperary, after arriving in secret. The lavish pad is owned by his German artist pal Gottfried Helnwein, who is notorious for dark artworks.
Manson is said to have fallen in love with the picturesque area while visiting his long-time friend earlier this year.
The singer is infamous for his dark, gothic style and his music has been blamed for fuelling teenage obsessions with satanism and the occult.
At the ceremony, Manson wore a black silk taffeta tuxedo, while Von Teese - real name Heather Sweet - donned a royal purple, silk taffeta gown with a corset.
They exchanged vows in a non-denominational ceremony conducted by underground film-maker Alejandro Jodorowsky.
Before the wedding, Von Teese, 33, said: "It won't be a truly traditional wedding but it won't be freaky or satanic."
Manson added: "We wanted the pageantry of a normal wedding but without the church. I don't think I'd be welcome."
Around 100 guests were invited, including director David Lynch, Lisa Marie Presley, Keanu Reeves and Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne.
Last night, a passenger at Shannon Airport, about 90 minutes drive from Kilsheelan, admitted they were stunned to see Manson. He said: "It's good for the area he's picked here to get married and we wish him and his bride well."
Ollie Magher, who runs Kilsheelan's post office, added: "It all happened so suddenly. They weren't supposed to be getting married until January.
