Rufus Wainwright's starry wedding

Rufus Wainwright has married his theatre producer fiance Jorn Weisbrodt at his home in Montauk, New York.

The Canadian singer-songwriter and his partner exchanged vows on Thursday in front of 250 guests who included Yoko Ono, Star Wars actress Carrie Fisher, Mark Ronson and Lou Reed, the New York Post reports.

The wedding breakfast was held at the Clam Bar in Napeague, where each guest was given a jar of local plum jam inscribed with 'Rufus+Jorn's Hochzeit'. The food included lobster rolls and clam chowder.

It had previously been reported that Rufus and Jorn had invited guests to join them in leaping into the ocean after the ceremony, but it is not known if that plan went ahead.

Rufus and Jorn - who are parents to one-year-old daughter Viva Katherine - have been engaged since November 2010.
