Nikki Sixx: Mötley Crüe Bassist Gets Married

By: Pam Wright - March 16, 2014

Mötley Crüe bassist, Nikki Sixx, tied the knot with his long-term girlfriend, model Courtney Bingham Saturday.

Complete with peacocks greeting the 130 guests upon their arrival, family and friends gathered at Greystone Mansion in Los Angeles to witness the “gothic rock meets French countryside” wedding, according to People Magazine.

The 28-year-old bride wore a custom-made gown made by her aunt who owns Janene’s Bridal Boutique, in Northern California.

“I used to drive her nuts when I was younger trying on a million dresses,” she told Entertainment Tonight.

Bingham said she didn’t want a traditional dress and was inspired by a dress worn by actress Jennifer Lawrence that she came upon in a magazine.

“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!’,” said Bingham.

The couple became engaged over a year ago. Sixx, 55, proposed while on vacation with the How2Girl expert in St. Bart’s.

Stylist Halle Reum threw a bridal shower March 2 at the Hotel Bel Air, decorated with flower arrangements created by the bride herself.

This is Sixx’ third marriage. He was married to Playboy playmate Brandi Brandt for seven years and actress Donna D’Errico for 11 years.
