A spokesperson for the charity said: “We’d like to wish one of the most beautiful power couples a huge congratulations on their upcoming wedding.”

Most epic

Speaking about the upcoming nuptials, Von D said she wanted to host ‘the most epic vegan wedding ever’.

Taking to Instagram, she posted: “We love the idea of showing the world that you don’t have to sacrifice luxury/quality by choosing not to exploit animals in any way.

“We are also excited about not having a gift registry and instead have guests who might be inspired to gift us, donate to one of our favourite animal rights organizations (AnimalEquality) on our behalf instead.”
