Mötley Crüe's Nikki Sixx marries model

Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx has got married to Courtney Bingham, tying the knot with the model - who he has been with for three years - in front of family and friends yesterday.

The legendary rocker tied the knot with Courtney Bingham after three years with the model in a ceremony in front of their family and friends yesterday.

Taking to Twitter after the ceremony, he wrote: "Hot damn. I'm a married man.... @how2girl looked absolutely beautiful.Now it's time to PARTY. (sic)"

A representative for the couple also confirmed the news to People magazine, and the pair were wed at Greystone Mansion in Los Angeles.

The ceremony - which was attended by 130 guests - is said to have had a Gothic rock and French countryside theme.

Those who celebrated the happy day with the newlyweds were greeted by peacocks, while they later enjoyed a triple berry dessert from Sweet Lady Jane - a favourite of Courtney's.

While the bride wore a custom ivory gown, the groom went with a black suit with a black bandana tied around his head.

The iconic bassist's proposal was announced back in November 2012, and he said they were "beyond happy".

He tweeted: "When Courtney and I were in St Bart's I popped the question and she said YES....We would like to thank everybody who has been tweeting and posting online us congratulations....Both of us and our families are beyond happy."
