Singers Imbruglia, Johns Wed in Australia

January 2, 2004

BRISBANE, Australia (AP) _ Pop star Natalie Imbruglia married Daniel Johns, lead singer for Australian rock band Silverchair, in a secret ceremony.

The couple exchanged vows Wednesday at an exclusive resort on Australia’s northeastern coast, with a large white tent seen on the lawns of the Thala Beach Lodge, Australian Associated Press reported.

Johns and Imbruglia, who announced their engagement earlier this year, flew into nearby Cairns airport Tuesday night and were driven away in a gold limousine.

Imbruglia, 28, wore a silk chiffon V-necked gown with a hand draped layered handkerchief hem, by Beverly Hills designer Monique Lhuillier, AAP reported. Johns, 24, wore a vintage pale blue suit.

The newlyweds will release a wedding photograph for sale, with proceeds going to a favored charity of the couple.

Imbruglia first rose to stardom in Australia as an actress on the television drama ``Neighbors″ which also spawned pop princesses Kylie Minogue and Holly Valance.

After leaving the show for a stake at a musical career, Imbruglia topped the charts with the 1998 single ``Torn.″
