Courtney Bingham, Nikki Sixx’s Wife: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

Motley Crue’s Nikki Sixx, 55, has tied the knot with 28-year-old model Courtney Bingham. Read on for the crazy details on their nuptials and what led to their walking down the aisle.


1. Bingham and Six Tied the Knot Today in Los Angeles

Nikki Sixx’s representative confirmed the news of the couple’s wedding to People today.

After more than three years together, the Mötley Crüe bassist tied the knot with model Courtney Bingham Saturday afternoon at Greystone Mansion in Los Angeles in front of family and friends … The couple’s celebration featured lots of their personal touches and included Bingham’s favorite cake – triple berry from Sweet Lady Jane.

Their wedding comes about three years after they started dating.


2. The Theme of the Wedding Was “Gothic Rock Meets French Countryside”

Apparently, the theme was a cross between country and gothic rock and guests were greeted by peacocks as they arrived.


3. Sixx Popped the Question to Bingham in St. Bart’s

Sixx popped the question two years into the relationship when they were vacationing in St. Bart’s. Earlier this month, Bingham celebrated her bridal shower. People reports that:

Bingham celebrated her upcoming nuptials on March 2 with a sweet bridal shower thrown by her longtime friend and stylist Halle Reum at the Hotel Bel Air. The bride made her own flower arrangements and accepted fun honeymoon gifts including a candy necklace bikini top.

It only makes sense that the Bingham would make her own flower arrangements and things like that because she makes a living as a “DIY expert.” Using her website How2Girl, she gives women advice and tips on DIY projects. How2Girl has actually become quite successful, even having its own radio show with iHeart Radio.


4. Her Dress Was Made at Her Aunt’s Bridal Store

Bingham’s aunt actually owns a bridal store called Janene’s Bridal Boutique, in Northern California, so Bingham had her aunt custom-make her dress. Check out Bingham at her fitting in the above video.


5. This Is Sixx’s Third Trip Down the Aisle

This is actually the third marriage for Sixx, who was previously married to Playboy playmate Brandi Brandt and to actress Donna D’Errico.
