Shock rocker Marilyn Manson will reportedly marry his girlfriend Dita Von Teese in Tipperary, Ireland, this weekend (03DEC05).

The couple settled on the event's time and place at the last minute in an attempt to avoid a media frenzy.

Their choice of location and date grant their wish for wild weather - they are desperate for "snow and fog" to shroud their nuptials in eerie grandeur.
