Irish singer-songwriter Sinead O’Connor married Barry Herridge on her 45th birthday at A Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas tonight. I was invited to photograph the couple as they said their vows in a very nontraditional setting on Las Vegas Boulevard.
O’Connor was thrilled and said that she dreamed of getting married in Las Vegas in a pink Cadillac. She cried during the ceremony in the back of the vehicle.
The “Nothing Compares 2 U” singer wore a pink dress, braving the cool temperature and keeping warm by snuggling close to Barry, who wore a matching pink shirt, throughout the 15-minute ceremony.
The chapel team sang “Happy Birthday” as the couple blew out candles, kissed, posed for photographs and went off into the Las Vegas night to celebrate as newlyweds.
