Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Royal Wedding may have been a monumental historical moment, but the real matrimonial showcase of 2018 happened this weekend in Sicily thanks to Italian influencer Chiara Ferragni and her rapper beau, Fedez.
Practically social media royalty themselves, the pair have a combined following of over 21 million people on Instagram alone.
Proposing to her on-stage during one of his concerts in May 2017, Fedez surprised the star behind fashion blog, The Blonde Salad, by performing a new, unpublished song dedicated to Ferragni, who was wearing a crystal-embellished Saint Laurent black dress designed by Anthony Vaccarello.
Chiara Ferragni & Fedez are engaged, and he proposed in the sweetest way!
So, naturally, the subsequent wedding went OFF.
The big weekend kicked off with the couple flying their friends and family out to Sicily on private Alitalia flights, where they were greeted on the runway by oversize cartoon versions of the bride and groom.
Followed by a lavish rehearsal dinner at Noto Bassi di Palazzo Nicolaci, the happy couple hosted family and friends for a traditional Italian knees up. The bride-to-be was, of course, decked out in sequin custom Prada.
(Reminder: this was all BEFORE the official wedding even kicked off.)
On Saturday night, the event got into full swing as Chiara was walked down the aisle of their stunning outdoor venue at the estate to greet Fedez at their take on an altar… a breathtaking canopy of white roses and endless greenery.
Wearing custom Dior, what looked to be a relatively classic and modest high-neck dress with layers of tulle, actually turned out to be a crochet lace hot-pant playsuit with detachable skirt.
