Searcharazzi Saturday Spectacular: The Larry Page Wedding Details

Searcharazzi - A Column From Search Engine Land Now that the “who attended which conference this week” gossip chatter is over, we have a bigger question: Who is attending Larry Page’s wedding today? As previously reported, Larry is getting married today, and Searcharazzi is reporting to you live from an undisclosed location at the island location, if only in our minds.

In any case, Searcharazzi has spent the better half of the month gathering the details of Larry’s and Lucy Southworth’s pending nuptials, to be hosted by Richard Branson on Necker Island. A special thanks to Valleywag’s spies for keeping a virtual wedding planner with all the details. Here are some of the juicier bits:

Celeb guests, why John Battelle and Al Gore won’t attend, and the surprise best man after the jump…

The San Fran Chronicle first pegged the wedding date as December 8.

Lucy’s sister is actress Carrie Southworth, who is married to Coddy Johnson, the field director of George W. Bush’s 2004 presidential campaign , who is in turn the son of George W’s Yale roommate, Clay Johnson. Oh, and Coddy’s also the Prez’s godson.

While it is rumored that a total of three presidents will attend the wedding, Al Gore will not, as he will receive his Nobel Peace Prize at a ceremony in Oslo, Norway, the following Monday. While that’s a better excuse than “I have to wash my hair,” there are numerous reports of private planes being sent around the globe to fetch guests.

Today, the Times Online revealed that the Clintons will not be attending, as the Mrs. is in Iowa campaigning. It has been rumored that President Carter will.

The guest list of 600 also includes Bono, but not John Battelle, who will reportedly be at a friend’s birthday in Morocco. Leonardo DiCaprio and Johnny Depp will also make an appearance. Oh, and all the guests have singed confidentiality agreements.

And while Reuters says that Branson is to be the best man, Valleywag raised some questions on why Larry’s brother or Sergey were passed over, if this is true.
