Leader singer of The Gossip, Beth Ditto, has married her girlfriend Kristin Ogata in a gorgeous ceremony in Hawaii.
The 32-year-old singer wed last month in a gorgeous gown designed by Jean Paul Gautier. We especially love the short style, the huge tulle skirt and the daring sweetheart neckline. It’s totally the opposite to what anyone would have thought Beth would have worn. We also love that Kristin wore a fitted white suit teamed with a cute pair of shorts, it’s a really fab feminine twist on the traditional bride and groom look.
Beth can be seen walking back down the aisle barefoot after the couple just got hitched, while their guests throw the wedding fashion rule book out the window by also wearing white.
The picture was released on Beth’s Facebook fan page saying: “At long last. Now that we have returned home and recovered from all the amazingness and had some time to bask in the afterglow, we are exited to share with you a pic or two from Beth and Kristin’s wedding!”
“So much love and appreciation to all of our family and friends who celebrated with us!” says Beth. “And a huge thank you to Jean Paul Gaultier for the dream-come-true dress!”
