Australia's richest man James Packer has married ERICA BAXTER in a small civil ceremony on the French Riviera, with pal Tom Cruise and his wife Katie Holmes in attendance.
The Antibes nuptials capped three days of celebrations at the fabled Hotel Du Cap Eden Roc, where the new Mr and Mrs Packer and their guests have been staying.
Despite speculation that Packer's fellow Scientologist Cruise might conduct the marriage ceremony, the actor wasn't even part of the intimate 30-minute town hall ceremony.
Cruise and Holmes joined fellow guests at a party on Paloma Beach last night (19Jun07).
Packer and Baxter bypassed French law that stipulates foreigners can only wed on the Riviera if they have lived there for 30-plus day by renting a villa there last month (May07).
