Måneskin wedding coincided with album launch.
Rome rockers Måneskin surprised their fans by staging a "not so holy" wedding, officiated by former Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele, in the Italian capital on Thursday night.
All four band members wore white, arriving at the 19th-century Palazzo Brancaccio building in their own white cadillacs, with Victoria and Ethan dressed as brides and Damiano and Thomas as grooms.
The "wedding" ceremony saw the celebrant ask Måneskin: "Do you wish to get married promising to be faithful to each other always, in joy and in pain, in love and in honour every day of your lives?".
After answering in the affirmative, the band exchanged rings and kisses before performing an exclusive concert including tracks from their new album Rush!
