TOM CRUISE has hired the same Hollywood event production company that planned the fairytale nuptials of BRAD PITT and JENNIFER ANISTON to co-ordinate his upcoming wedding to KATIE HOLMES.

The celebrity couple are tying the knot in Italy on 18 November (06), but have refused to reveal the exact location.

The wedding planning company, Along Came Mary, has also produced BARBRA STREISAND's wedding to JAMES BROLIN and SEAN PENN's nuptials with ROBIN WRIGHT PENN.

According to Radar Online, the company is owned by MARY MIUCCI, who is actually better known for staging blockbuster movie premieres.

Miucci has produced elaborate affairs for such films as MEMOIRS OF A GEISHA, for which she sourced hundreds of thousands of silk cherry blossoms and SUPERMAN RETURNS, for which she built a scale-replica Metropolis.

Cruise is familiar with her work - she also planned the premieres for the first two MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE movies, which reportedly earned her the nickname "the Queen of Theme".
