Shania Twain Wedding: Is That a Gun in Your Pocket?

1/2/2011 12:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Shania Twain didn't exactly have a shotgun wedding yesterday in Puerto Rico ... but it sure was a pistol -- as in what the guards were packing on the beach during the ceremony.



A guy who lives near the mansion where Twain tied the knot tells TMZ he stumbled upon the nuptials at the beach ... and was quickly shooed away by several armed security guards.

In the video you can see a guard with a pistol tucked in his belt roaming back and forth while the ceremony goes on behind him.

We're told the security was so tight, if you wanted to walk past the wedding... you had to go into the ocean to get around.

Beats getting shot.

Why do so-called "celebrity" need armed security? Crazy!

It looks more like a taser than a pistol.

Can we stop with the negative comments about Puerto Rico? Puerto Rico is a lovely choice for a wedding and a perfectly safe place to visit anywhere on the island. It is like anywhere else, of course the are some bad neighborhoods but to say it's 90% of the island is absurd. Congrats to the newlyweds on their wedding and their excellent wedding location choice!

Although she's lovely, I can't imagine how a Swiss businessman could stand hillbilly music.

Sorry folks you really sound jealous of Shania.
Shania is a music icon worldwide and one of the richest and most successful artists of alltime. She holds the record for biggest selling female album of alltime and the only artist to have 3 diamond albums in a row. She is worth over 400 million on her name alone.
she has written and recorded some of the biggest songs in history.
And Shania hasn't had a hit since Mutt left because she hasn't put out any music lol!!! She chose to take a few years off because she has the money and luxury to do that.
So Shania by her choice decided to take a few years off the music scene. But when she releases an album it is sure to be a worldwide hit like all her music.

Thats funny, all beaches in Puerto Rico are PUBLIC. You cannot have a private ceremony on the beach where everyone has the right to walk on or be at.

yeah, I'm way out of line.    

How is this news? Show me a Puerto Rican that's not carrying a gun, and that will be newsworthy!

So many nagging jealous people!!! lol. If they are happy together good for the two of them! Hope they enjoy their time with each other. Life's too short to worry about whether you should wear white, marry on a beach, or what the neighbours (general public think) etc., it should be enjoyed in whichever way one chooses. All the best to them.

shania twain was born in Chapleau Ontario Canada, a small town north of Sudbury. She is based in the timmins ontario canada area about 2 hours away. They have the Shania twain center there to idolize her. She is a hot topic in northern ontario.
she wasnt called shania twain before. her name used to be eilene. I live in sudbury and travel to timmins often. If TMZ would like some exclusive footage of the center i would be happy to get it. Plus any other stars that roll through. did you know alan thicke father of robyn thicke was born up there to. in a place called kirkland lake ontario. my wifes father lives there. Lots of stars come around here. they even have homes on manitoulin island one hour and a half from sudbury. i can get the footy im tellin you. 50 cents been here akon etc...

it's pretty messed up when you marry the husband of the woman your 1st husband cheated on you with

also, Shania is not part Indian- her stepfather is- Shania is about as Indian as Ronald McDonald

I am sure that your readers will want to know that she has been treated for acute and debilitating herpes infection.
Please don't bother her or her family.
I am a practicer, and have copies of her records.
If you are interested reports of culture results and other leave a message here and I will respond back directly.
Shalom, and stop the jihad now~.
