Singer-songwriter Utada Hikaru (31) and Italian bartender Francesco Calliano (23) held their wedding ceremony in Polignano a Mare, Southern Italy on May 23.


Utada wore a simple, full-length white dress with laced sleeves. It was a tightly-guarded wedding with about 7-8 bodyguards to prevent pictures from being taken. Among the chaos, the couple stepped out of the church in smiles.

About 300 spectators flocked to the church to get a glimpse of the "Japanese pop star & young Italian man". Utada arrived 15 minutes after the groom in a black Mercedes with tinted windows. One after another, cheers of celebration came from the locals.


Utada was surrounded by 7-8 bodyguards dressed in black, completely blocking her appearance from the people who came to see her. In order to protect the bride, the bodyguards each held up paper umbrellas. Those who were invited to the ceremony were even notified in advance that photography was forbidden. 


A reception followed the ceremony in the groom's hometown, Fasano. 


Congratulations!

Congratulations Hikki!!  As someone who's been a fan of her since 2007, I wish her all the best in her future marriage.  Seeing pictures of her again makes me nostalgic for the old days when I would listen to her music almost 24/7. :')

The End
