October 19 was the day Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel tied the knot. The secret was out about the Italian ceremony that day, but not the photos. Reports read that Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel sold their wedding photos to People for $300,000.
The Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel wedding was one of the hottest celebrity news this year. The two stars tied the knot October 19 in an Italian ceremony that is estimated to have charged their bank accounts $6.5 million. Obviously, the photos of Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel’s wedding are must-see. The couple sold their wedding album to People magazine for only $300,000.
It seems this isn’t the market for celebrity wedding photos. Only $300,000 for photos from Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel’s wedding?! According to the Daily Mail, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas sold their wedding photos in 2000 for $1 million, while Forbes reported that Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher cashed in $3 million from OK! magazine in 2005 for their wedding photos.
“The celebrity market is in a recession too, and A-list stars are no longer getting millions for wedding pictures” a market insider told the Huffington Post. “In this market, $300,000 is a good price. Plus, that is only for U.S. rights, so they will also make money from selling them to other countries” the source added.
But that’s enough compassion for the “poor” celebrities. What’s important is that Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel sold their wedding photos to People. That means that we will get to see for ourselves how “special” and fantastic that evening really was in People’s cover story this week.
By the way if you wished Justin Timberlake will sing at your wedding, his new wife got your wish. The former N-Sync star serenaded Jessica Biel at the wedding, playing the guitar and everything. “It was an original piece I wrote specifically for the evening and for her” Timberlake confessed in the interview with People.
The ceremony is estimated to have cost $6.5 million. Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel had 100 guests that joined them on their wedding day at the Borgo Egnazia resort in Italy.
