Over the weekend, Tina Turner and her long-time German music producer boyfriend Erwin Bach tied the knot at a private ceremony on the banks of Lake Zurich in Switzerland, surrounded by friends and family, including Oprah Winfrey and Bryan Adams.
Now, the 73 year-old singer gave Hello! Magazine exclusive details about the nuptials and also shared photos of her silk Armani ‘black & green’ wedding dress with layers of Swarovski crystals.
Turner described the marriage as ‘a wonderful place to be,’ while admitting that she wanted to put her own stamp on a traditional American ceremony.
“It’s that happiness that people talk about, when you wish for nothing, when you can finally take a deep breath and say, ‘everything is good.’ It’s a wonderful place to be.”
Tina managed to find the perfect wedding dress (opting from the traditional white to something more glamorous) while being seated at a fashion show in Beijing and decided that she had to have the eye-catching creation.
“I thought, ‘I gotta have that, even if I never wear it”, she said. ‘Then I thought, ‘I know, that will be my wedding dress’.'”
Plus, 120 guests were invited to the event at the couple’s Swiss home, the Chateau Algonquin estate in the Kuesnacht municipality last Sunday.
They also reportedly increased the security at their party by having wedding planners put up a red canvas screen at the foot of their garden, as well as police cordoning off the water outside their property.
