The couple married in front of friends and family during a romantic ceremony at Richie’s father Lionel’s Beverly Hills estate on Saturday (11Dec10).
Madden’s twin brother and Good Charlotte bandmate Benji served as best man while the socialite’s pal Samantha Ronson was among the bridesmaids. Other guests included Gwen Stefani, Ashlee Simpson and Kris Jenner.
The happy couple’s children, Harlow, two, and 15-month-old Sparrow, were also at the ceremony.
Weekend reports suggested the couple’s representatives were negotiating an exclusive magazine deal ahead of the big day, with aims to land a whopping $100,000 (£66,670) for the snaps, which the socialite reportedly planned to donate to charity.
However, Richie’s rep has denied the claims, telling the New York Post: “Your information is incorrect.”
