We're getting more reports from the scene of this weekend's wedding between gummy Google cofounder Larry Page and yummy Stanford Ph.D. Lucy Southworth. Above, another picture of the wedding tent (click for a bigger version.) Is that an alt-energy windmill on the hill? How eco-conscious! After the jump, a vacationing tipster sends us more details of the goings-on in the Virgin Islands, including a rundown on rumored Hollywood guests.
We were staying in this little slice of paradise called Virgin Gorda when this wedding extravaganza came upon us. Now we cannot go to Little Dix or Biras Creek, some of our favorite spots.Another possible guest? Ex-president Jimmy Carter, Nobel Prize winner and founder of folksy charity Habitat for Humanity.
First let me tell you that the whole island is NOT booked for the wedding. Only Little Dix Bay, Biras Creek, the Bitter End yacht club and some private villas.
We haven't seen any big activity happening yet. Other than the at least 25 big containers shipped to the island with decorations, furniture and who knows what else. It is hard to believe that there will be 600 guests. Necker Island is pretty small to accomodate such a big party, and so is Little Dix. But we'll see.
Rumor is that Clinton, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonny Depp are some of the guests.
So, how is Larry and Lucy's quixotic quest for privacy going? Another friend writes in:
Someone said it perfectly down here, you bring in 600 of your closest friends, bring secret service down to check out the place, bring in anywhere from 15 to 50 containers of "stuff", book up every hotel room around and then they except someone NOT to notice it and take pictures, as they want to "keep it quiet?" "Keep it quiet" would have been going down to city hall in Timbuktu!
