New Year\'s Eve Wedding for Hudson, Robinson
Goldie Hawn’s 21-year-old actress daughter, Kate Hudson wed
Black Crowes lead singer Chris Robinson, 34, in a New Year’s Eve ceremony at the Aspen Colorado ranch owned by her mother and longtime partner, Kurt Russell.
Hudson's rep, Brad Cafarelli, confirmed the marriage. However, the nuptials were no surprise since rumors had been rippling through the tabloids prior to the holidays.
Hawn and Russell were among the 70 guests at the evening ceremony. Russell, whom Hudson has called dad for most of her life, gave the bride away. Hudson's estranged natural father, comedian Bill Hudson, was not present, Cafarelli said Monday.
According to People.com Kate has reportedly said that her father "wasn't really in our lives very much."
Hudson's maid of honor was her friend Dyani Redclay, while Robinson's best man was his younger brother and bandmate, Rich. The other members of the Black Crowes also attended as did newlyweds Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas.
However, no other famous names were present, according to Cafarelli.
Hudson, Hawn, and Redclay wore Vera Wang gowns, while the Robinson lads and Russell were fitted with Brioni suits. Cafarelli noted that Hudson's dress consisted of a corseted bodice and large hoop skirt, in keeping with the event's romantic, 19th-century theme. He declined to comment on the content of the couple's vows.
The couple was still at the ranch Monday, with Hudson due to fly to London next week to begin filming the 1939 epic war drama Four Feathers, which also stars Wes Bentley and Heath Ledger. The movie will be directed by Shekhar Kapur. – Albawaba.com.
