Seal stood up for friend and colleague Joel Madden yesterday.

By positively going OFF on the country of Australia.

In the wake of Madden being kicked out of his hotel Down Under due to possession of marijuana, the artist's colleague on that nation's version of The Voice came to his staunch defense over Twitter last night.

"All my Brother has done since he's been here is serve this country by attending numerous kids hospitals," Seal wrote, also praising Madden for his work with homeless shelters and disabled kids.

"Yet having a joint in the privacy of his hotel room is worthy of front page news???" the singer asked.

When Nicole Richie married Joel Madden on Saturday, the author, reality star and fashion designer was determined to keep the event private. She succeeded.

More details have emerged in the aftermath of the blissful affair, however. For one, Richie donned not one, not two, but three different looks this weekend.

Richie wore one gown during the ceremony, officiated by rapper-minister Rev. Run. For the dinner, she kept the same top and switched to a different dress.

For Mr. and Mrs. Madden, it was a night they'll always remember.

For the after-dinner party, she changed into another Marchesa frock. The same celebrity fashion designer was behind all three of the bride's gorgeous looks.

As for the cuisine, Madden, Richie and their 150 guests (including Khloe Kardashian, Gwen Stefani and Samantha Ronson) enjoyed a winter-themed feast.

The gourmet meal included red greens salad, homemade butternut squash ravioli, an entree choice of filet mignon or seared ahi tuna and a dessert buffet.

The guests proceeded to dance on a stage Lionel Richie had built over the pool at his Beverly Hills estate, making for an awesome time for everyone.

While the details are being kept under wraps, we do know there was an elephant in the room ... or at least outside of Lionel's estate. Really, there was.

Congratulations to the newlyweds!

Nicole Richie walked down the aisle in a Marchesa gown that was custom made in NYC, with celebrity hairstyle guru Byron Williams doing his thing.

Joel's twin brother Benji Madden took care of best man duties, while Samantha Ronson served as a bridesmaid in the musically inclined wedding party.

Her best friend Masha Gordon was the maid of honor, with the wedding party also including Joel and Nicole's adorable children Harlow and Sparrow.

Nicole Richie and Joel Madden are reportedly getting married Saturday.

The location is Nicole’s father Lionel Richie’s house and the ceremony will be small and “winter-themed” ceremony, as “Nicole is obsessed with the season.”

She did name her daughter Harlow Winter Kate Madden, so we'll buy it.

“A stage is being built over the pool so the guests have more space to dance,” a source says. “It’s cool because people will be dancing on top of the water.”

Nicole made a trip to NYC to be fitted for her Marchesa wedding gown.

“Nicole brought her stylist Simone Harouche with her,” an insider says of her gown. “A lot of thought went into her dress - it was a huge priority for her.”

The date has FINALLY been set for the wedding of Nicole Richie and Joel Madden, at least if you're inclined to believe anonymous Radar Online sources.

For what it's worth, the alleged date is in early December.

The former Simple Life star and her rocker fiancee are set to tie the knot before a star-studded guest list at the Beverly Hills home of Nicole's proud dad.

Are Nicole and Joel (with Harlow) about to make it official?

"Christmas has always been about family and faith for Nicole and Joel, so there is not better time of the year for them to wed," an insider told the site.

While the super-secret details of theirs nuptials have not yet been released, close pal Christina Aguilera and Samantha Ronson are planning to attend.

Nicole Richie is getting married soon. But she either won't give up details or just hasn't thought about them, 'cause she's tight lipped about the when and wear.

When promoting her new book Priceless on The View earlier this morning, the mother of two said "yes" when the ladies asked if she was getting hitched soon.

But she won't divulge deets (like the December wedding rumor going around) saying, "Joel [Madden] and I aren't big planners. We just kind of go with the flow."

One thing Nicole certainly didn't plan - but had much less control over - was the travel delays she endured, which almost made her miss the NYC appearance.

Thanks to engine and weather-related problems, Nicole had to take three different planes to reach NYC from L.A. for her Borders book signing and View visit.

"I'M HERE NYC! 12 hour flight. No hair. No makeup. But NOTHING is stopping me! Here I come!" she Tweeted. That's dedication. Joel, Harlow and Sparrow are lucky!

Nicole Richie and Joel Madden, who have been together for several years and are already the parents of two adorable children, are getting married.

Richie made the announcement Monday night on The Late Show. Madden followed it up with a confirmation Tweet: "Yep. i'm engaged. Very happy."

Sums it all up right there. He adds: "Yeah we've been engaged for a while so your all kind of late on that. But Thanks for the hooplah all the same."

A source tells Us Weekly of the pair: "Nicole and Joel are in the process of planning the wedding. She's very involved in every detail. She’s thrilled."

The couple is expected to marry (for real this time) in the summer.

Richie and Madden started dating all the way back in December 2006 and have two children together: daughter Harlow, 2, and son Sparrow, five months.

"For us, we are going to do it because we want to," said Richie last year of tying the knot on her own time. "We're going to do it when the time's right."

Looks like that time is now.

These two have been a nice, relatively normal couple and cute family for so long, but it's great to see they are making it official. Congrats Nicole and Joel!

For no reason other than cute fun, Nicole Richie and Joel Madden posed adorably with their little ones in some snapshots for her official website.

Nicole may not be friends with Paris Hilton, but she's got all the love and support she needs from what one of the cutest celeb families around!

Aren't these pictures of Nicole, Joel, their 23-month-old daughter Harlow and their adorable three-month-old son Sparrow just the sweetest?

Family fun with the Richie-Maddens.

On a side note, Nicole is rocking a new hairstyle that we're a fan of. Harlow's curls and smile just make us melt, too. Sparrow? He was recently born, so he's allowed to look a little confused. Joel? You look tired, man! Get some coffee!
