    Background: POLICE WERE CALLED IN TO DISPERSE PRESS PHOTOGRAPHERS WHO MOBBED PAUL GETTY JUNIOR AND BLONDE DUTCH ACTRESS TALITHA POL DELAYING THEIR REGISTRY OFFICE WEDDING TODAY (SATURDAY) AT THE ROME TOWN HALL BY HALF AN HOUR.

    MR. GETTY, SON OF THE OIL MULTI-MILLIONAIRE, AND HIS BRIDE WERE SURROUNDED BY PHOTOGRAPHERS WHO FAR OUTNUMBERED THE HANDFUL OF GUESTS.IN A GENERAL MELEE BEFORE THE CEREMONY COULD START, THE COUPLE BECAME SEPARATED AND TOOK REFUGE THROUGH A SIDE DOOR. AFTER POLICE HAD RESTORED ORDER, THE CEREMONY PROCEEDED WITH ABOUT 10 INTIMATE FRIENDS PRESENT. THE COUPLE MET AT A PARTY IN LONDON FOR BALLET DANCER RUDOLF NUREYEV LAST YEAR.

    MR. GETTY'S FATHER, REPUTED TO BE THE RICHEST MAN IN THE WORLD, WAS NOT PRESENT. HE SAID HE WAS "DELIGHTED" AT THE MARRIAGE, BUT WAS UNABLE TO ATTEND.

    THE 34-YEAR OLD BRIDEGROOM WALED FROM HIS BACHELOR FLAT JUST ACROSS THE SQUARE FROM THE CITY HALL. THE BRIDE DROVE UP WEARING A WHITE VELVET FUR-TRIMMED MINI-COAT WITH COLLAR. SHE IS THE 26-YEAR OLD GRAND-DAUGHTER OF THE LATE PAINTER AUGUSTUS JOHN.

    THE COUPLE PLANNED NO IMMEDIATE HONEYMOON - JUST A SMALL RECEPTION FOR RELATIVES AND FRIENDS AT A RESTAURANT IN THE VILLA BORGHESE GARDENS.
