Here Is a High Fashion Wedding So Ridiculous the Bride Wore a Disco Ball Helmet

There was a gold room, floral thigh high boots, and a fireworks show off a rocky cliff. 

Giovanna “Gio” Battaglia, a senior editor for Vogue Japan, and Swedish real estate tycoon Oscar Engelbert married over the weekend, in a straight off-the-runway wedding which looked ready for a magazine spread. 

The duo and their high-fashion friends took over the island of Capri for the huge bash, which can be tracked on Instagram under the #gioandoscar tag.

To start the bride wore three different wedding outfits, including an Alexander McQueen gown with a huge train for the ceremony, a floral Giambattista Valli mini with matching floral boots and a crown to cut the cake and dance, and for the rehearsal dinner the night before, she wore an Azzedine Alaia dress.

Here she is dancing in the floral number.

The couple said their vows on a rocky cliff, where they scheduled pink confetti cannons to explode all around when they shared their first kiss as a married couple.

A huge sit down dinner followed, with an enormous dance floor constructed for the occasion and two photo booths set up for guests to take pics.

There was also a news stand, a Gatsby-inspired “gold room,” and a fireworks show to finish off the festivities. At one point the bride and groom threw some disco balls on their heads and danced the night away.

Net-A-Porter founder Natalie Massenet and fashion editor Anna Dello Russo were among Giovanna’s five flower girls, who both wore Valentino. Other guests included designer Giambattista Valli, model Natasha Poly and Roberto Cavalli designer Peter Dundas.

Dress number one.

Part of the ceremony was on a boat.

Do you have room in your purse? Oooh, place settings gorgeous enough to steal.
