Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker’s gothic wedding took place in Italy and wowed fans with its opulence.
The ceremony took place in the ancient Castello Brown fortress in Portofino. The couple rented the seaside Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana complex for a stylish celebration with friends and family. Celebrity guests included Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly, Andrea Bocelli, Mark Hoppus and others.
Everything from the wedding décor to the guests’ outfits were kept in a gothic theme.
For the wedding, Courtney wore a one-of-a-kind Dolce&Gabbana Alta Moda dress of white silk lace and satin and a spectacular hand embroidered veil.
The designers were inspired by the iconic Italian lingerie and la dolce vita figures when creating the dress.
The corset accentuates the silhouette with a design rich in exquisite cut-outs and made with expert tailoring techniques that emphasise femininity.
Courtney wore a wide, long tulle veil with floral lace applications inspired by the flowers of the Portofino gardens. The veil was hand embroidered with a large image of the Virgin Mary and the words ‘fidelity to family respect’. The cross-stitch embroidery is reminiscent of her husband Travis’ tattoo and is a symbol of union, respect and shared devotion.
The image is complemented by tulle gloves and white lace shoes.
Travis Barker also wore a Dolce&Gabbana suit. A double-breasted jacket with lapels, classic trousers with compressed pleats and side waistband, both in superfine black Italian wool with black silk satin dinner jacket details. Both garments were made to order: the cut, the choice of materials, the study of proportions, the meticulous attention to detail, and the combinations are aimed at creating a unique piece of clothing with a perfect fit. The jacket is entirely hand sewn, strictly following all the passages of the Italian sartorial tradition. The front part of the jacket is skillfully needle-punched, then the horsehair, and finally the ribs, which give the jacket shape and reinforce the structure of the garment. The shoulder pads and rollers, also made by hand, define and “sculpt” the shoulders, giving them a defined and distinct line. The entire garment is finished with hand stitching and button loops. A luxurious black silk satin lining was chosen to enhance the interior. The look was completed with a white shirt, a black satin bow tie, a gold cross brooch with black crystals and creeper-style shoes.
