Sia Secretly Married Dan Bernard in a Surprise Wedding in Portofino

And their nuptials had a surprising connection to Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker's wedding.

Over the weekend, Sia traded her bold on-stage costumes for bridal whites. The Australian singer-songwriter said “I do” to Dan Bernard during the first weekend of May 2023 at Stefano Dolce and Domenico Gabbana's Villa Olivetta in Portofino, Italy, People reports. Their surprise ceremony was an intimate affair with just four guests. The bride walked down the aisle in an elegant lace gown with three-quarter-length sleeves, a mermaid silhouette, a high neck, and a trail of buttons down the bodice, the outlet reveals. She finished off her look with red lipstick and a lace-embroidered veil. Standing by Sia’s side, her husband sported a light blue tuxedo with silk cummerbund and a matching bow tie.

The couple traded vows beneath an iron gazebo adorned with baby’s breath and roses in shades of pink, purple, yellow, and white, which was arranged over a faded rug with a floral pattern. Gold tables with intricate carvings topped with white votives in glass candle holders stood in the background. Lower tables with the same lavish detailing flanked the ceremony arch, but they housed floral arrangements that matched the arch and were surrounded by white candles.

The "Cheap Thrills" singer has kept much of her relationship with Bernard out of the limelight, so they haven’t confirmed when they first started dating. According to People, Sia has only posted one photo of her now-husband on social media. On October 21, 2022, the “Chandelier” singer uploaded a carousel of photos to celebrate Pride and promote her new album. While the first image shows the entertainer standing behind a piano with her hands in the air, the second picture features Bernard standing next to her. “Pride forever!” Sia exclaimed in her caption. “#lgbtqia+ #LAFC #22👀❤️ also just finished my next album! A great day all round!”

This isn’t the “Unstoppable” singer’s first wedding. Sia was previously married to Erik Anders, but the couple lasted less than two years. The former duo wed at Sia’s home in Palm Springs, California, in August of 2014, which took place just two months after they announced their engagement, according to the publication. In December of 2016, the pair parted ways. 

Last year, Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker also hosted their third wedding at Dolce & Gabbaa’s estate in Portofino, Italy. Unlike the Grammy-nominated singer and Bernand’s event, the Poosh founder and Blink-182 drummer went all out with a weekend of events. The duo kicked off the celebration with a dinner party at Ristorante Pune. The following day, they visited the Abbey of San Fruttuoso for lunch before celebrating at Villa San Bartolomeo, part of the Dolce & Gabbana complex. Sunday was the ceremony, which took place at Dolce & Gabbana villa. They ended the night with a bang at Castello Brown.
