RON Perlman and his younger bride Allison Dunbar ARE officially married after a dash to a California courthouse following their lavish Italian nuptials. The Sun can exclusively reveal the loved-up pair, who have been dating since the Sons of Anarchy star split from his wife of 38 years, Opal Stone, in 2019, secretly tied the knot months ago.
Allison, 49, recently revealed they were “pulling a Kravis before it was a thing,” in Italy as she shared a video on Instagram of her in a wedding dress, referencing Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker’s recent ceremony.
The insider said: “They were planning to get married officially in Italy but Allison booked a movie and it screwed their timeline.“They vacationed in Maltera and were still desperate to get married, but they unfortunately didn’t have enough time to get the correct paperwork done.
A source exclusively told The Sun the super-private wedding took place Francis Ford Coppola’s property Palazzo Margherita in Bernalda, a small town in Southern Italy. Although Ron, 72, and actress Allison did not obtain a wedding license, they did head to a courthouse in California after returning from their trip and signed the papers.
“It didn’t stop them having their romantic ceremony in nearby Bernalda and it was the perfect day. “They only shot one video on Allison’s phone before running downstairs for the ceremony and invited fellow hotel guests to help them celebrate.”
Exclusive photographs obtained by The Sun also show the couple in a romantic setting in Maltera before the ceremony, showing Allison in a breath-taking green gown. Ron and Allison declined to comment publicly on their marriage when approached.
The footage shows the pair dancing to Frank Sinatra’s You Make Me Feel So Young, with Allison wearing a short white lace dress with long sleeves and a veil from LA’s Stone Cold Fox. Ron looks dapper in a dark suit, blue shirt and pale tie as he beams and sways from side to side with his new wife in luxurious surroundings just minutes before they said ‘I Do’.
The source said the pair wanted to keep their nuptials a secret following social media backlash surrounding his divorce from Opal, the mother of his two children. An insider previously told The Sun Ron and Allison, who had been friends for some years, only became romantic after his split from his wife and there was no overlap. “They are really enjoying married life, Allison doesn’t have a wedding ring yet but Ron has been secretly wearing a band for a few months now,” a source said.
