Supermodel Kate Moss’s rustic village wedding has infuriated local residents because of a security clampdown that some compared to that of a British royal event.
For the wedding of Kate Moss to rockstar Jamie Hince in the Cotswolds area of the U.K., roads were shut, movement restricted and villages guarded by a heavy police presence.
The couple is continuing to celebrate their union on Friday with a three-day, festival-themed party centered on Moss’s luxury farmhouse in the village of Little Faringdon.
Local residents and wedding guests had to use permits to enter the villages of Little Faringdon, Oxfordshire, and Southrop, Gloucestershire, the BBC reports. There was a large police presence throughout the area.
Some residents were warned they would be arrested if they walked through the village in the hours before the ceremony, the Daily Mirror reports.
Villagers were upset that Moss was being treated like a member of the royal family, the tabloid says.
Moss, 37, wore a sleeveless ivory wedding dress by recently disgraced fashion designer John Galliano, with a long veil and a floral headband for her wedding in the village of Southrop. Hince, 42, a guitarist with rock band The Kills, wore a pale grey suit.
Mario Testino photographed the couple, reportedly as part of an exclusive deal with Vogue magazine, to appear in the September issue. Testino, one of the world’s most famous photographers, also took the engagement photos of Prince William and Kate Middleton.
