Morning Briefing:
Kidman-Urban nuptials: Just after sunset on Sunday night in Sydney, Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban exchanged vows in a ceremony that included most of Hollywood's other Australian stars, from Hugh Jackman (who performed at the reception) and Russell Crowe (who did not) to Naomi Watts and media mogul Rupert Murdoch. Immediately after the ceremony, sources called American magazines to gush: "It was the most emotional and beautiful ceremony," one guest tells People. "Nicole cried all the way to the church in the car and then she cried all during the ceremony and had to wipe her eyes under the veil." You can see a full picture gallery here. (People, Herald Sun)

Auction but no interest for baby Suri pix: There's at least one good possible explanation out there for why the public has yet to see any photos of Tom Cruise/Katie Holmes offspring Suri -- according to Fox 411, it's because nobody wanted to buy them. At an auction involving all the usual suspects -- People, Us Weekly, Star, In Touch -- the bidding price for a Suri photo spread never rose above $3 million, and the offer for the pictures was rescinded. Now, post-Shiloh -- Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's baby, whose pictures reportedly sold to People for just over $4 million -- it doesn't look like the Suri photos will ever have the chance of being sold. "Shiloh was the whole deal," says Fox's source. "We won't see a baby like that again for a while." (Fox 411)
