PAULA ZAHN, CNN ANCHOR: We will go back to Ireland where the guest are pouring into castle Leslie in Ireland, getting ready for the rock 'n' roll wedding of the year. Sir Paul McCartney and model Heather Mills will be tying the knot just a short time from now, maybe about an hour and 15 minutes or so from now. Our Richard Quest is staking out the place with an eye on all the comings and goings.

Wait, is it actually 45 friend now that it's happening, Richard?

RICHARD QUEST, CNN CORRESPONDENT; Paula, do not hold me to this, please. We believe the ceremony will happen at 3:30 or 4:00. What we have seen is we've seen buses arriving. We've seen cars that have swept past with blackened out windows. We have no idea who is in there. All we're going to have to wait for is the statement from maybe Jeff Baker, Paul McCartney's spokesman, about what the service was like.

When the picture is released, we believe that will be in about 2 1/2 to three hours' time. Then we will have a much better idea of what took place behind those doors bind me. We do know, of course, that Paul McCartney's family is there, his three children by Linda McCartney, his late wife, and of course, his stepdaughter; they are there. Even though Stella McCartney rumored to have maybe had a few differences in recent past with Heather Mills, Paul McCartney's fiancee. But the family is there.

And you know something interesting, although it is a bit of a media circus out here, Paula, and there are quite a few people from Glaslough here to watch. It has got the feeling more of a family and friends event. They have been seemingly quite successful at doing that -- Paula.

ZAHN: Really impressed that they faced the press yesterday when they didn't really have to do that. That had to win them some fans among the locals.

QUEST: Absolutely. And not only did they face the press and get two kisses on the lips for the photographers and say, thank you. They also collected all the autograph books and all the autograph papers from everybody here and agreed to go back in the castle. They signed them, and those autographs were taken out.

There's another bus, a very large bus just about to arrive here. I mean, it's one of those things. We have no idea who may or may not be on it. But it's probably one of the buses that's come from the airport.

Now, I challenge you in that to recognize any celebrity. I think, perhaps possibly, maybe, in the third row, at the back, behind the left hand wheel, you know, Paula, that's about all we will see of this sort of thing.

ZAHN: Somehow I didn't make out Ringo, Twiggy, Bill Clinton, couldn't see any of them.

QUEST: But, Paula, I've got one final thought for you. Jack earlier was trying to glum some freebies, some souvenirs from this earlier. Well, tell him he's in very good standing, because here we are from Castle Leslie. He can have his sweet and sour fix. That will keep him regular. Black bree (ph) and lime, the Oriental black bean chilly. You name it.

Now we just got to work (ph), by the way. I've got to get from here to there.

ZAHN: You ever heard of a cargo plane? We'll try. We'll make sure we get one of the routine snacks that comes over from the London bureau to New York. Have fun, and we will be looking forward to coming back to you live when that first picture is transmitted of the very happy newlyweds.

Thanks, Richard.

QUEST: Indeed.
