ROME — Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes will likely wed Saturday in a Scientology ceremony held at a 15th century Italian castle in a lakeside town near Rome, the town's mayor said Thursday.
The wedding party, along with guests, are then expected to attend a banquet the same day in Rome, Bracciano Mayor Patrizia Riccioni said.
For weeks rumors have focused on Odescalchi Castle in the sleepy town of Bracciano as the likely venue for the celebrity wedding. Riccioni told a news conference Thursday she had met the couple the day before, but she would not say where.
Cruise, 44, star of the "Mission: Impossible" films, and Holmes, 27, have been staying this week at a luxury hotel near the Spanish Steps in Rome.
Holmes' parents arrived in the Italian capital Thursday. Also spotted at the airport were Jennifer Lopez and her husband, Marc Anthony; Jim Carrey; Jada Pinkett Smith; and Brooke Shields.
