The cost of fashion designer Stella Mccartney's wedding to ALASDHAIR WILLIS spiraled to $320,000 (GBP200,000) - mainly due to tight security and transportation expenses.
The pair wed on Saturday (30AUG03) at the 300-acre (120-hectare) MOUNT STUART estate on the Scottish Isle of Bute, which was constantly patrolled by a team of top security men.
And, in keeping with her day job, it is believed Stella designed her wedding dress herself.
An insider says, "She wore a strapless, fitted dress in a yellow, lime colour. We heard she had designed it herself, with GUCCI boss Tom Ford."01/09/2003 13:32
