Beyonce Knowles' fried feast
Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z treated their wedding guests to a feast of caviar and fried chicken.
The superstar couple - who tied the knot at Jay-Z's New York apartment on Friday night (04.04.08) - served friends, including Gwyneth Paltrow and husband Chris Martin and Beyonce's former Destiny's Child bandmates Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland, a seven-course stomach-busting meal.
One wedding guest is quoted by MediaTakeOut.com as saying: "There was literally so much food! We had seven courses in total, including beluga caviar, shrimp scampi and buckets of Popeye's Fried Chicken."
Beyonce, 26, and 38-year-old Jay-Z then took each other in their arms for their first dance as a married couple to 'Crazy in Love' - the 2003 hit song they collaborated on.
The newlyweds retreated upstairs at around 1am.
A source revealed they were desperate to consummate their marriage because Beyonce had ensured they stuck to a three-week 'no sex' ban before their big day.
Wedding guests were reportedly searched before entering the apartment. Security guards confiscated numerous cell phones and cameras, as well as three guns.
While both stars are refusing to confirm the nuptials, Jay-Z accepted congratulations from passers-by as he partied at New York's The 40/40 Club, which he owns.
