Rufus Wainwright to Marry Jorn Weisbrodt
Posted by Adam
RUFUS Wainwright is getting married.
The actor, 39, will wed long-term partner Jorn Weisbrodt on Thursday .
The couple — who got engaged in November 2011 — will tie the knot at the home of Rufus’ father Loudon Wainwright III and late mother Kate McGarrigle in Montauk, New York, after same-sex marriage was made legal in the state in July 2011.
Yoko Ono and Carrie Fisher are both due to attend the Hallelujah hitmaker’s nuptials, along with around 250 guests.
Attendees will be treated to a lunch of champagne and lobster rolls at a local restaurant before heading to Montauk’s Shagwong Restaurant for a reception which is expected to go on until 4am.
Last year, the pair welcomed a baby girl.
“Darling daughter Viva Katherine Wainwright Cohen was born on February 2, 2011 in Los Angeles, California to parents Lorca Cohen, Rufus Wainwright and Deputy Dad Jorn Weisbrodt,” said a post on Rufus’ website.
“The little angel is evidently healthy, presumably happy and certainly very, very beautiful.
“Daddy #1 would like to offer everyone a digital cigar.”
