Newly-wed couple Stella Mccartney and ALASDHAIR WILLIS stumped guests by asking for trees as wedding presents.

The pair wed yesterday (30AUG03) on the Scottish Isle of Bute, and asked their famous guests to buy them gifts from a list of 324 trees, made up of 75 varieties - costing between $64 (GBP30) and $480 (GBP300) each.

Guests at the wedding include pop queen Madonna and her husband GUY RITCHIE, supermodel Kate Moss, actress Gwyneth Paltrow and Stella's famous father Sir Paul McCartney and his pregnant second wife Heather Mills.

The former Beatles legend was honoured in the choice of plants, with the couple requesting two SCARLET PAUL trees.

Stella and Alasdhair plan to plant their new trees in the grounds of their $2.08 million (GBP1.3 million) home in Worcestershire, England - with a plaque on each tree bearing the name of the person who gave it to them.
