The Italian actress Elisabetta’s married in a romantic ceremony!
Elisabetta Canalis has tied the knot with her orthopaedic surgeon fiancé Brian Perri.
The Italian actress, who famously dated George Clooney for just under two years, married in a romantic ceremony in her native country, choosing to walk down the aisle of Sardinia’s Sassari Cathedral on Sunday.
As she arrived with her face covered by a veil, Elisabetta, 36, looked radiant in an ethereal gown. It featured layer upon layer of lace and a long train.
The blushing bride, who kept her make-up natural and her hair in loose curls, waved and blew kisses to onlookers who had gathered.
Following the ceremony that was attended by guests from Italy and the United States, Elisabetta and Brian were showered with white petals as they took their first steps as newlyweds.
The brunette beauty took to Twitter to thank the small town of Alghero in Italian for “making [her] dream possible” and for all the locals who had shown their support and affection.
She then posted a sweet snap of herself and Brian the following day, saying that she had gone on a bike ride with her new husband.
Elisabetta had previously revealed that she would be marrying in a venue “where no one has ever got married”.
“A historic estate in the Sardinian countryside, a huge vineyard that we are setting up for the occasion,” she told Chi magazine of the location. “There is no hotel or restaurant, we will do everything ourselves.”
“The function will be in the church,” she added. “I love the tradition and I’m getting married in a white dress.”
Elisabetta confirmed her engagement in August, two months after she suffered a devastating miscarriage.
In a message posted on WhoSay, written in Italian, Elisabetta spoke of her heartbreak and reached out to other women who have gone through the same experience.
“Unfortunately, life gives you… a reality that you do not expect,” she posted. “That is very hard to accept, even if you think you are strong enough and prepared. You’re never really ready to be told that there is no more beating (heartbeat) and that it had already stopped long ago.”
