Newlywed Jessica Chastain has one request for fans following her wedding this weekend, and that’s to please refrain from sharing photos from the nuptials.
The actress, who married Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo at his family’s estate in Northern Italy near Venice on Saturday, June 10, took to Twitter on June 13 to raise a concern of her own. Shortly after the couple married, paparazzi photos of the bride and groom were published across the internet.
Chastain, incensed about the invasion of privacy, challenged fans and friends to consider the circumstances under which the images were taken. “Did you hear? Im off the market,” Chastain, 40, wrote on social media beside a winking emoji. “Gianluca & I got married! We wanted privacy & aren’t selling photos but Ill post something in the future.”
De Preposulo, a count and a fashion executive, has been with Chastain since 2012, but there’s been a remarkable sense of privacy concerning the couple’s relationship. The same mentality was applicable to their wedding, with extra precautions set to avoid the public eye.
Chastain attached an additional note detailing how aerial paparazzi shots were taken from a no-fly zone. “Thank you for the sweet comments about my wedding,” she continued. “I love you and it was a beautiful day. I am going to ask you to please stop sharing the photos. Helicopters disregarded a [no-fly] zone & took those pics during the ceremony.”

Despite the invasive nature under which the wedding pictures were shared, the bride said she still has plans to post memories from the special day… on her own terms. “I would prefer to share photos that celebrate love not intrusion,” she expressed.
Celebrity guests at the wedding included Anne Hathaway and Emily Blunt, both of whom have starred alongside Chastain in recent movies. According to People, the newlyweds served a Prosecco harvested straight from the estate grounds.
