Dreams of their own upcoming wedding days surely passed through the minds of Wonderbra model Elisabetta Gregoraci and actress Alice Evans on August 27, 2007 as they stood next to their respective fiancés, multi-millionaire Flavio Briatore and “Fantastic Four” star Ioan Gruffudd, and witnessed socialite Tamara Beckwith walk down the aisle of Redentore Church in Venice, Italy. Standing at the altar in a dark morning suit, construction heir Giorgio Veroni watched as his bride, holding on to her father’s arm, made her way to his side, the tulle tiers of her ivory wedding dress fluttering with each step.
Following the exchange of vows, the house of worship’s white marble facade, adorned with renderings of St. Mark and St. Francis, provided a romantic backdrop as the former reality TV star and her new husband posed for photos alongside such famous faces as Elton John’s husband David Furnish, and Duran Duran’s Simon LeBon and Nick Rhodes. Heading out to start their new life together, the newlyweds boarded a motorboat which sped away from waterfront church. As the couple kissed the bride’s billowing veil seemed to wave goodbye to the family and friends who wished them well.
