Tina Turner married her longtime partner, Erwin Bach, in a stunning green wedding dress that may have been a religious symbol as well as a trendy fashion statement.
Turner and Bach tied the knot in Switzerland last week where the dress code was largely influenced by Turner’s Buddhist beliefs.
While all the women at the ceremony were dressed in white, Turner stood out in a fabulous green Armani wedding gown.
The color green has certainly been making a serious comeback in the fashion world, but Turner’s reason for slipping into the green gown may be a lot deeper than fashion.
In the Buddhist religion, colors are very important symbols and it just so happens that green is a color that represents balance and harmony – two traits that any couple would love to have in their marriage.Tina Turner wears stunning custom green wedding dress by Giorgio Armani
The famous wedding guests also participated in the Buddhist water blessing ritual where the guests, one by one, pour water over the couple’s hands. The water runs through the hands of the bride and into a vessel beneath her that is filled with flowers.
This is seen as the best way for guests to bestow their own personal blessings and happiness unto the newlyweds.
As we reported before, the wedding ceremony wasn’t all just about serenity. The guests had the opportunity to have a good time and party well into the night to celebrate the couple of almost 30 years finally becoming husband and wife.
On the star-studded guest list was Oprah Winfrey, Sade, David Bowie and the man who was responsible for the bride looking so fabulous in the first place, Giorgio Armani.
There were about 120 guests at the wedding celebration on the couple’s lakeside estate near Zurich.
This marks Tina Turner’s second marriage and the first marriage for 57-year-old Erwin Bach.
