Utada Hikaru holds her wedding on 23 May at Polignano a Mare in Italy

Utada Hikaru and her Italian husband held their wedding at Santa Maria Assunta Church in Polignano a Mare, Italy on 23 May around noon where she was surrounded by 4 bodyguards who used umbrellas to block reporters from taking photographs of the bride.

When Utada made her marriage announcement on 10 Feb this year, the response to the news was so overwhelming that she asked for the media not to disturb her husband and his family and that their privacy be respected. She commented that her wedding ceremony is not a show and hoped that the media and fans would not focus too much on it. As such, even the guests invited to the wedding were not allowed to bring cameras into the church. After the ceremony, the newly-weds and the guests gathered for a party at the nearby Certosa di San Lorenzo.

Utada had met her husband last year when she was staying in London and he was working as a bartender at a hotel there. They began dating soon after and introduced each other to their parents during summer.

Utada previously married movie director cum photographer Kiriya Kazuaki in 2002 when she was just 19 and the couple divorced in March 2007.
