Gianmatteo Fernan Guidicelli, 29, who is professionally known as Matteo Guidicelli, reportedly got married to Sarah Geronimo, 31, on February 20, 2020. Their civil wedding became controversial not only because it was unannounced but also because the groom attacked the bride’s bodyguard in the throat, according to authorities.
The wedding of Guidicelli and Geronimo took place at Shangri-La at the Fort in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, Metro Manila, Philippines, Rappler reported. Long before their wedding, rumors claim that her parents did not approve of her relationship with him.
In the middle of the civil wedding rites, Guidicelli punched Jerry Tamara, the bodyguard of Geronimo, according to a police report obtained by CNN. Tamara was accused of informing the bride’s mother Divina Tua Geronimo about the wedding.
Divina reportedly did not know about the wedding. When she arrived at the ceremony, she insisted on speaking with Sarah and it was then that Guidicelli attacked Tamara.
Guidicelli is an alum of the New York Academy, Brent International School, Columbia College and the Philippine Army. He was born in Cebu City, Cebu, Philippines on March 26, 1990 to Italian father Gianluca Guidicelli and Filipino mother Glenna Fernan.
Sarah was born in Santa Cruz, Manila on July 25, 1988. Her father Delfin Geronimo is a retired employee of telecommunications, internet, and digital service holdings company Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company (PLDT, Inc.) while Divina ran a beauty salon in their house.
While Matteo and Sarah have been in a relationship since 2013, it was in 2014 when they publicly announced it. They announced their engagement in November 2019.
Matteo made his acting debut in 2007. He voiced Takumi Fujiwara in the Japanese street racing manga series “Initial D: Fourth Stage” and played Matteo in the ABS-CBN sitcom “Go Kada Go.”
