Stanley Tucci, Felicity Blunt have formal wedding with celebrities and cheese 'cake'
Stanley Tucci and new British wife Felicity Blunt recently had a formal wedding in London, more than a month after they tied the knot in secret ceremony.
They first exchanged vows in early August, according to The New York Daily News. Tucci, 51, and Blunt, married in a larger ceremony in London on Saturday, People magazine said. Tucci's spokesperson confirmed the report to OTRC.com.
Blunt's sister Emily Blunt served as her bridesmaid. She co-starred with Tucci in the 2006 movie "The Devil Wears Prada," as did Meryl Streep, who also attended the wedding, People said. Other celebrity guests included Emily's husband and "Office" star John Krasinski, Patricia Clarkson, Julianne Moore, Colin Firth and designer Kenneth Cole, the outlet said, adding that Steve Buscemi served as Tucci's best man and Oliver Platt was a groomsman.
The magazine also said that "as a surprise, the wedding cake was actually a stack of wheels of cheese."
Buscemi and Tucci starred together in several movies, such as "Slaves of New York," "Billy Bathgate," "In The Soup," "Somebody to Love" and "The Impostors." The two were also executive producers of the 2009 film "Saint John of Las Vegas," which featured Buscemi.
Tucci also directed and wrote the script for the latter film, which also starred Platt. The actor was a producer for another one of Tucci's films, "Big Night," and the two starred together in the 1992 dog comedy film "Beethoven."
Tucci and Blunt announced their engagement in November. It was Emily who set the actor up with her sister, who works at a London literary agency.
Felicity is Tucci's second wife. His first wife of 14 years, Kate, died in May 2009 after battling cancer. The two had three children together. Kate Tucci also had two children from a previous marriage who Stanley helped raise. The couple was separated between 2003 and 2004, during which time Tucci dated actress Edie Falco.
Aside from "The Devil Wears Prada, Tucci also co-starred with Streep in the movie "Julie & Julia" and has also starred in films such as "The Hunger Games" with Jennifer Lawrence, "Easy A" with Amanda Bynes and "Burlesque" with Cher. He earned an Academy Award nomination for his role as a killer in the 2009 movie "The Lovely Bones."
Tucci is set to reprise his "Hunger Games" role, Caeser Flickerman, in the upcoming sequel, "Catching Fire," which is currently in production and is set for release in 2013.
