Actress Liv Tyler quietly slips off to Barbados to marry
her fiance of two years, rock singer Royston Langdon
It's not like those poor kids didn't
try. After Lord of the Rings star Liv
Tyler, 25, and rock singer Royston
Langdon, 30, became engaged on Valentine‘s Day 2001, they floated one
wedding date after another. But try
finding a moment that didn’t collide
with the assorted concert schedules of
Tyler's complicated clan: legendary
Aerosmith frontman, father Steven
Tyler, 55; ex-groupie-turned-singer,
mom Bebe Buell, 49, and her husband
of seven months, Vacationland‘s James
Wallerstein, 36; and rocker Todd
Rundgren, 54, who with Buell, his former longtime partner, raised Tyler -
and now uses Langdon as his opening
act on tour. "They kept putting it off,
trying to accommodate everyone's
schedule." says Rundgren. "I guess
they got tired of waiting."
Guess so. On March 25 Tyler and
Langdon quietly wed-a move that
seemed to surprise no one. "We all
knew it was coming," says Buell. The
pair invited a handful of Langdon relatives to their intimate, candlelit
nuptials at a private beach house on Barbados.
"It was a mix of religious and
civil ceremony," says Langdon's dad.
Chester, who witnessed his middle
son's vows, along with wife Cynthia
and sons Antony and Chris. "The
bride looked beautiful, stunning-but
that's Liv all the time."
The pair plan to renew their vows at
a late-April bash in New York City,
where they are now renovating a town-
house. "It will be the first time that
Todd, Steven and I have all been in the
same room." says Buell. "I'm really
looking forward to that sense of love
and healing." Anything else? "I can't
wait to see [my] grandchildren. They're
going to be gorgeous!" Oh, one more
thing: "The dates had to be changed
twice now to get everybody there."
