Actor Greg Wise has painful memories of his wedding to fellow British screen star EMMA THOMPSON - because the kilt he was wearing allowed hungry insects to feast on his private parts.

In the traditional Scottish ceremony on 29 July (03), the SENSE AND SENSIBILITY star's manhood was protected only by the tartan garment - which made him the victim of the sharp-toothed midges.

His new wife joked on their special day, "It rained like there was no tomorrow and it was like midge soup.

"Greg has no knickers on - his manhood has been murdered. We have been bitten to death but we couldn't be happier."

Although Emma's close friend Kate Winslet and new husband Sam Mendes were due to attend, the newly-married mum says she could not have wished for a better day.

Emma adds, "We have had our closest and dearest friends with us, and although the weather has been miserable, we couldn't have had a better day."
