Nikki Sixx has wed. The fifty five year old Mötley Crue bassist said his vows with model twenty eight year old Courtney Bingham in a Los Angeles lavish ceremony on Saturday, March 15, 2014. The couple had been together for three years and about one hundred and thirty guests did attend their nuptials.
The ceremony was held at Greystone Mansion in Los Angeles and had a gothic rock combined with a French countryside theme, according to People. The ceremony was a success and featured a number of quaint personal touches including Bingham’s favourite triple berry cake.
The couple posted Instagram pictures of their pre-wedding preparations. Sixx posted an image of his wedding jewellery, gothic rock inspired.
“so excited for today”. Sixx’s future wife posted her “last selfie as a single woman” and added: “I love my fiancé! Ready for our day to celebrate with my new family, my family and friends!”
Sixx proposed to Bingham in St. Bart’s in 2012. Preparations for the wedding have dominated Bingham’s Instagram account and she discussed in depth her wedding dress shopping plans in a recent interview. The 28-year-old model found her perfect custom made wedding dress at her aunt’s bridal boutique, as Bingham told Entertainment Tonight. It seems she searched for the perfect dress but after being unable to find one, decided to turn to her aunt for help. On the matter she said “How special to have a family member make it [the dress] and design it for me.”
Her inspiration turned to fashion magazines as she wanted something different from the traditional bridal styles. She found her inspiration in Jennifer Lawrence’s dress from the Oscars in 2013. Bingham told ET,
“then I saw Jennifer Lawrence two years ago at the Oscars falling gracefully, perfectly, as she goes up to accept her award, and I thought, ‘Oh my gosh, the back of that dress!’”
Sixx was married before to Playboy playmates Brandi Brandt and Donna D’Errico. He has four children from his previous marriages: three from his first and a daughter from his second.
