Mr and Mrs Cruise in the Maldives

23 Nov 2006

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are celebrating their wedding by taking a holiday in the Maldives.

The couple have chosen one of the 1,192 tiny coral islands as their honeymoon destination, with local government officials confirming reports.

'Yes, they are here, I can confirm that," chief government spokesman Mohamed Hussain Shareef told the Associated Press. 'They have gone to one of the islands but this is very, very secret.'

Mr and Mrs Cruise hosted the wedding of the year less than a week ago, with many famous faces making an appearance.

The ceremony was held in a 15th century Italian castle and attracted such celebrities as Victoria Beckham, J Lo and Brooke Shields.

Since the couple arrived in the Maldives, tourism officials say activity in the region has increased.

Rumours spread quickly that the stars were staying in the region and reports that they were going to be eating in a particular restaurant are said to have caused a rush of bookings.
