And the bride wore … a gown made of broken mirrors.

Billionaire oil heiress Ivy Getty, the great-granddaughter of oil tycoon J. Paul Getty, marry photographer Tobias Engel in a dress of glass custom-made by John Galliano.

In addition to the opulent affair, “Queens Gambit” star Anya Taylor-Joy was the maid of honor and the ceremony was conducted by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The bride’s rescue dog was a ring bearer.

The 26-year-old artist and model Ivy to get married at City Hall in San Francisco in a custom Galliano gown for Maison Margiela Haute Couture, made from four layers and covered in mirrored pieces.

“A big percentage of the dress is real mirror,”

Galliano disclosed to Vogue of the sparkling number.

“But because she has to walk in it, we produced a material that would bring to mind real mirror but weigh greatly less.”

Her veil was decorated with walnuts in honor of her grandmother Ann, who grew up on a walnut farm. It also had guitars to pay special honor publicly to her late father, John Gilbert, a musician who died last year.

Ivy revealed to Vogue she chose contentious designer Galliano because her late grandmother always wore his designs for Givenchy and then Christian Dior, from which he was ousted in 2011 after a video appear of him going on a drunken anti-semitic tirade in Paris. He joined Maison Margiela in 2014.

“My grandmother always wore John Galliano’s designs,” Ivy declared to the glossy. “My grandmother always admired him so it felt as if she was there with me during all of this.”

“After my grandmother’s passing — she was really more like a mother to me — I felt this connection to John. I knew I wanted him to create the dress for my wedding. My aunt Vanessa, who I am very close to, was connected to him through a friend, and here we are.”

Guests at the black-tie event were California Governor Gavin Newsom, San Francisco Mayor London Breed, Vanessa Getty, Princess Olympia of Greece, designer Wes Gordon, Mimi Wade, Vogue journalist Hamish Bowles, Fletcher Cowan, and of course filmmaker Christian Coppola.
