Watch: Video From Shania Twain’s Beach Wedding


Yesterday we learned that Shania Twain surprisingly married her new fiancee Frédéric Thiébaud on a beach in Rincon, Puerto Rico on New Year’s Day in front of 40 of the couple’s closest family and friends. Today we get to see video from the wedding ceremony that features Shania and Frédéric lovingly exchanging their vows to one another as a pistol-packing rotund bodyguard protects the perimeter of the ceremony from any looky-loos who happen to also be on the shared beach. How romantic!

Shania Twain didn’t exactly have a shotgun wedding yesterday in Puerto Rico … but it sure was a pistol — as in what the guards were packing on the beach during the ceremony. A guy who lives near the mansion where Twain tied the knot tells TMZ he stumbled upon the nuptials at the beach … and was quickly shooed away by several armed security guards. In the video you can see an a guard with a pistol tucked in his belt roaming back and forth while the ceremony goes on behind him. We’re told the security was so tight, if you wanted to walk past the wedding… you had to go into the ocean to get around.

Yeah … I totally get that a celebrity wedding like this needs security … but don’t you think the gun is a bit much? I mean, is it really possible that this flabby guy was gonna pull his gun and shoot someone if they dared get too near the couple? I mean … it’s possible but … no. Now that would’ve been a wedding video to see. Alas, Shania and Frédéric were wed without incident and without requiring anyone get shot so … it sounds like a lovely ceremony. Congrats again!!
