Mariah Carey & Nick Cannon Wedding Pictures

The latest issue of People has the exclusive Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon wedding pictures.

Mariah, 38, and Nick, 27, married during an April 30 sunset ceremony at her Bahamian estate.

“We really do feel we are soulmates,” Mariah says. “I never felt a love like this was in the cards for me.”

Nick adds: “She is beautiful on the outside and 10 times as beautiful on the inside.”

Mariah’s not so impromptu wedding details

Private jets from NYC arrive at Governors Harbour Airport in the Bahamas all the time. But two that landed on the afternoon of April 29 were carrying some extra-special cargo. Pop diva Mariah Carey, 38, and actor Nick Cannon, 27, rode on one – and about 24 wedding guests were passengers on the other!

“They all walked off carrying cups of champagne,” an airport waitress reveals. While Mariah and her man headed straight to her $5 million home on Windermere Island, their guests headed to the island’s posh Pineapple Fields hotel. “Everyone was in party mode,” the witness says. For good reason. At noon the next day, Mariah and Nick were married by Bishop Clifford Petty of the National Church of God on the patio of her mansion overlooking the Atlantic.

While Nick took care of the bling, Mariah steered the top-secret wedding plans. “Mariah‘s assistant arrived on Eleuthera Island, just off the coast of Windermere, on April 27 to start making arrangements,” says the airport waitress. “The next day, a commercial jet arrived from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., carrying two huge tanks of live Maine lobsters.”

Her security team and staff also flew in to get the home ready for their notoriously high-maintenance boss. Among their duties: laying out silk robes, designer sheets and towels, blackout curtains for her bedroom and vases filled with orchids. (When she stays at hotels, bright lightbulbs are usually replaced with softer, more flattering ones, per her orders, says the Mariah insider.)

“Whenever Mariah travels, they set up for her beforehand,” the Mariah insider explains. “And it’s no joke – if anything she needs or wants is missing, she’ll be upset.”

The morning of Mariah’s big day, florist Benjamin White was spotted greeting a private jet filled with flowers. “Hurry up,” he told handlers anxiously. “I don’t have much time to play with.”

Mariah herself oversaw the delivery of her wedding cake – flying it down with her on the private jet. “It was on the seat next to her,” a source confirms. “She wouldn’t let anyone come near it or touch it.

But all the meticulous planning paid off. “She was one happy, happy lady on her wedding day,” says a witness at the ceremony. Less thrilled, however, were Nick’s relatives – who found out about the nuptials through media reports. “They’re upset they weren’t invited and didn’t even know about the wedding,” says an insider close to the newlyweds. “They were shocked they had to hear about it secondhand.”

Still, they’re trying to be as supportive as possible. Nick’s brother, Gabriel, said he sent the groom well wishes, saying, “I love him very much.”

    I heared that they met each on a celeb dating site named ” Ma r r yMill ionai re.Co m”.Is it true? Can we meet our true love online?

    Please go away. Are you that starved for attention that you must write the same drivel on each thread?

  • rolling eyes

    DO they really think its gonna work when they’re talking about it!

    Mariah shud know better…but this is still all so RANDOM!!!

  • wow

    They knew there were gonna get married and kept their traps shut until the last minute so that People got the exclusivve.

  • Candice

    Weird! I guess Diva Carey just so happend to “forget” to invite the grooms family. But hey, at least her peeps like “da brat” were there. She’s definately more important thank Nick’s mom *rolls eyes*

    if your going to really elope (and if one family is there, and not the others) shouldn’t it just have be you two. Then no one is hurt. And what’s up with here demading all kinds of bullshit?? Im soooo over mariah.

  • COmeback 3t?

    Good luck to them.

  • 007

    Good luck to Mariah. Hope this marriage works out for her =).

  • Iris

    I’m from Australia and I actually don’t know who her husband is or even the fact that she was about to get married! Would anyone be so kind as to explain the history to me in a nutshell? Cheers

  • jagoda

    WHAT ??
    no kidding ?

  • good choice

    Nick Cannon is waaaaaay better choice than that wacko Tommy Mattola.

    So this wasn’t so spur of the moment? They just kept quiet.

  • [marie]

    What a sham! I give that 2 months….

  • soopx

    Congratulations Mariah.

  • Maria (Shorty)

    What a Joke! @ 05/07/2008 at 11:10 am Tommy Matola must be so relieved to be rid of her insanity and be involved in a “healthy” family relationship.

    If lucky, this “relationship” will last two or three years. Mariah Carey is a self-destructive bi-polar narcissist!
    Where does Tommy Matola come into this? She’s been divorced for years and has nothing to do with the man. She’s blessed not to be with that control freak anymore.

    Wishing Mariah and Nick all the best!

  • TiredofthisCrap

    I thought this was Pop Fiction.

    Nick Cannon is an actor,host, did he sing or rap ? As far as I know they just started dating last month. God Bless them and Good Luck!

  • Accidental Sexiness

    JJ -

    Mariah Carey is suppose to be on Oprah today, we’ll have redlasso video later today @ (re: Mariah Carey Discusses Wedding on Oprah).



    they already got married? geez they didnt waste any time did they…


  • Carrie

    I am surprised at Mariah. Known each other since March 26, and marry a month and a few weeks later. How does she know he’s her soul mate, and how does he know she’s so beautiful inside. She doesn’t know Nick, he doesn’t know her like that. Of course they just met so they’ll both be on their best behavior, but sorry, it’s best you get to know a person way longer than that before you marry them.

  • oh

    Nick was engaged to elita Ebanks exactly last May…………..

    so….what the hell just happened?

  • d-dawg

    I didn’t believe it either, but after seeing Bye-Bye, it was cute seeing them being so cute :)

    Congrats to the newlyweds!!! Wish them nothing but theeeeeeee best! :)

    And BTW! I thought she was still dating that guy who was with her all the time?!?! Any LAMBS would know this, I think I THINK he’s one of Mariah’s entourage or something… But I do know he works in the music industry! :P

  • jessella

  • lj

  • Sam

    Last year magazines had this idea that the 2007 fashion was for celebs to have twins, maybe the trend for 2008 is for shotgun weddings., LMFAOL

  • trish.

  • piper, with a low

    Tommy Matolla(sp) is an issue because Mariah continues to belly-ache about him. She was just whining about him mere weeks ago.

    For Matolla, Mariah is so ten years, a new wife and new baby ago.

    I don’t know if Mariah and Nick will last (I kinda don’t care either) but at least this chick will have something else to talk about.


    (Watch yo back Mariah)
    I feel like its nice they are both married and look happy but, NIck Canon is not as big as her, He has less money, and its a big age difference of 11 years. I hope he gets mature because he is silly. I really hope she got a prenup and does not end up like Brittney Spears and Kevin. If he breaks her heart i think Mariah is going to go crazy again. I believe thats why Brit went crazy because of all the guys that hurt her and she felt like f*** everyone. She stop trusting everyone judgment and did her own thing. Love is Blind
