Nikki Sixx Marries Courtney Bingham
The bassist wed his girlfriend of three years, model Courtney Bingham, in Los Angeles Saturday afternoon
Nikki Sixx is a married man!
After more than three years together, the Mötley Crüe bassist tied the knot with model Courtney Bingham Saturday afternoon at Greystone Mansion in Los Angeles in front of family and friends, his rep confirms to PEOPLE.
Peacocks greeted the 130 guests on arrival at the wedding, which had a gothic rock meets French countryside theme.
Sixx, 55, popped the question two years into their courtship while vacationing with the How2Girl expert in St. Bart’s.
Bingham celebrated her upcoming nuptials on March 2 with a sweet bridal shower thrown by her longtime friend and stylist Halle Reum at the Hotel Bel Air. The bride made her own flower arrangements and accepted fun honeymoon gifts including a candy necklace bikini top.
The 28-year-old didn’t have to go far to find her dream dress – her aunt owns a bridal store, Janene’s Bridal Boutique, in Northern California, and custom-made the gown for her. “I used to drive her nuts when I was younger trying on a million dresses,” she told Entertainment Tonight.
Not wanting a traditional wedding dress, she flipped through fashion magazines and studied red carpet looks, “and 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!’ ”
The couple’s celebration featured lots of their personal touches and included Bingham’s favorite cake – triple berry from Sweet Lady Jane.
This is the musician’s third trip down the aisle. He was previously married for seven years to Playboy playmate Brandi Brandt and 11 years to actress Donna D’Errico.
