Yep, it's official - and NME.COM's got the proof...

Here are the wedding banns that give official notice of MADONNA and GUY RITCHIE's wedding date at DORNOCH CATHEDRAL in the Scottish Highlands.

As reported on NME.COM earlier this week, the couple will tie the knot on December 22, and will christen four-month-old son Rocco at the same church on the eve of their wedding.

According to reports in The Sun today (December 8), the guest list for the wedding will include Gwyneth Paltrow, Rupert Everett, Donatella Versace, Stella McCartney and ex-footballer Vinnie Jones - who starred in Guy's movie 'Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels', and who will join the groom for a stag night a few days before the wedding along with co-stars Jason Statham and Jason Flemyng, and Ritchie's friend, club entrepreneur Piers Adam.

The reception at 7600-acre Skibo Castle is expected to be attended by 400 guests, the whole shebang costing around £1.5 million, with folk singer Cesaria Evora singing at the bash. The couple are believed to be flying in their own security staff, including ex-SAS soldiers, and a big public turn-out is expected to witness the spectacle. According to Scottish tabloid the Daily Record, Madonna fans have begun to bombard the local tourist information office with calls.
