Hikaru Utada and Francesco Calianno were united in marriage on May 23rd, 2014 in Italy!
They were wed at the same place as Francesco's parents, a cathedral in Polignano a Mare, in the Province of Bari. Onlookers and paparazzi were kept away by bodyguards with Japanese parasols. Guests were also asked to not to take any pictures or leak any news. The bride arrived in a Mercedes van. The ceremony was officiated by Don Gaetano Luca (pastor).
After the ceremony, a reception was held at a country estate, la masseria Sant’Angelo de Grecis, in Francesco's home town of Fasano. A structure dating back to the 11th and 12th century.
On Hikki's WEBSITE, she posted a quick picture and a short message in three languages:
Hey, I got married!
Thank you, to everyone.
Grazie a tutti.
The couple had officially announced their engagement back in February. They had met at the Bulgari Hotel in London where Francesco was a bartender.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
