Salma Hayek Plans Second Wedding in Italy
Penélope Cruz is among the guests expected at the weekend nuptials in Venice
Salma Hayek is tying the knot – again.
The actress and her husband François-Henri Pinault, who quietly got married at the 6th Arrondisement City Hall in Paris on Valentine’s Day, are reportedly walking down the aisle once again.
Antonio Banderas announced at a press conference in Spain earlier this week that he plans to join wife Melanie Griffith in Venice, Italy for friend Hayek’s wedding this weekend. Other celebrities expected include Penélope Cruz and Luis Miguel.
According to People en Español, the celebration will kick off with a rehearsal dinner Friday, followed by a wedding ceremony Saturday at the Palazzo Grassi, a white marble palace built in 1748-1772 and owned by the Pinault family since 2005.
The home has a special meaning for the couple: It’s the location where they first met when he held a gala party there in 2006.
Earlier this month, Hayek, 42, told PEOPLE, “I think a wedding is about love, friends, family and fun.”
The actress-producer and Pinault, 46, the CEO of luxury-goods company PPR, are parents to daughter Valentina Paloma, born in September 2007.
