What do you give as a wedding gift to a millionaire pop star who has everything? If the bride is Christina Aguilera, you give her the signed copy of the three-page confidentiality agreement she sent you. Each of the 150 guests invited to watch the pint-sized pop princess exchange vows with her music-manager fiance Jordan Bratman in California's wine country had to hand over the legal document before they were allowed to take part in the celebrations. All the guests were sent the contract in a bid to ensure that even the tiniest detail of the wedding remains secret - although photographers were camped out at a farmhouse in the Napa Valley from the start of the festivities on Thursday.

It was prefaced by the revelation that one guest had already attempted to sell the ornate invitation, contained in a 2ft-wide box filled with flowers, that announced the marriage. One guest told The Mail on Sunday it gave a whole new meaning to 'pre-nuptial agreement'.

"You have to sign your life away. It's three pages long. It starts, 'It came as a great shock to us that one of our guests has been trying to sell their invitations. We are sorry to have to ask you, our dear friends and honoured guests, to sign this agreement but we feel it is the only way to ensure the security of our wedding.'" Guests including singer Justin Timberlake - like Christina, a former member of American television's Mickey Mouse Club - and his film-star girlfriend Cameron Diaz, as well as actresses Carmen Electra and Drew Barrymore and musicians Nelly and Pink, were told precisely what they were not allowed to discuss with 'any third party'.

Banned subjects included the cake, the rings, entertainment, speeches, food, the venue and other guests. As for the dress, nothing about the train, cut, colour, designer or material can be revealed. But The Mail on Sunday can disclose that Christina, 24, flew to Paris to view the spring couture collection of Christian Lacroix, who designed Catherine Zeta-Jones's wedding dress. It included an ornate silk gown with a sheer lace top, a ruched train and a veil that trailed to the model's waist, with a jewelled belt that might have appealed to the bling-bling singer.

The tattooed star, who also has a pierced nipple, said recently: "The dress will be conservative. Don't expect the sort of stuff that hangs off me when I'm on stage. I want white and kind of traditional."

It seems likely the wedding rings were by British designer Stephen Webster, who cre-Christina's 60,000 diamond engagement ring. Dresses for the bridesmaids - thought to be as many as ten - were made by Stevie Wonder's wife Kai Milla. In many other respects New York-born Christina and her new husband have been remarkably laissez faire. While other brides specify a dress code - Claudia Schiffer, for instance, banned guests from wearing white - the Grammy-winning artist gave no hint of any themes in her invitations.

She and Bratman arrived in Napa, an eight-hour drive north of their 2.7million home in the Hollywood Hills, Los Angeles, on Wednesday evening. On the same day Christina's white Rolls-Royce was seen on a transporter on its way to the town.

The couple stayed at one of Napa Valley's most luxurious resorts, the Auberge du Soleil near Rutherford, while the wedding was held in the stunning Staglin Family Vineyard, one of the region's oldest organic wineries. Three large marquees were erected beside the red-brick farmhouse to fend off prying eyes.

The bride and groom, who met two years ago, are believed to have chosen the 2,500-a-night private cottage at the Auberge for their wedding night. The large cottage features an oversized Jacuzzi, steam shower for two people, builtin bar and espresso machine.

In February, The Mail on Sunday was the first to reveal that Bratman had finally proposed to the raunchy star after months of speculation. Bratman, 27, is a partner in the talent management company Irving Azoff, which negotiates Christina's lucrative recording and movie contracts.

Christina, who made 20million last year, shot to fame in 1999 with her breakthrough hit Genie In A Bottle.
