After the ceremony at the villa owned by D&G, which sponsored the wedding, the party moved up the hill to Castello Brown.
Some guests opted to walk up steep steps from the garden where the couple married to reach the castle terrace where the reception party was being held.
But others including the couple themselves, mother of the bride Kris Jenner and her daughter Kim Kardashian opted to step back down on to the private jetty and board one of the Riva speedboats to be taken back to Portofino harbour.

Once they alighted at the harbour in their wedding finery, they faced a short walk of around 100m to a tunnel entrance in the hillside which gave them access to a private lift into the castle, which was built during Roman times as a military fortress.
Once inside the guests were greeted by a huge dancefloor with food stations and bars ready to serve up the finest local cuisine.
Instagram photos posted by Kylie Jenner revealed a delicious fresh pasta bar, with staff seen cooking different sauces to order and serving up bespoke dishes on colourful Dolce & Gabbana china.
For those fancying a sweet treat, there was also a cannoli station, where the Italian pastries were again made to order, with different flavour cream fillings on offer.

The doting dad also made sure his son Landon got his moment, when the DJ played the 18-year-old’s track die in California – a song that got Machine Gun Kelly up on the dance floor.
A source close to the wedding has told People that it was a day full of music as Andrea Bocelli and his son Matteo were invited to perform at the start of the reception. The musicians sang I Found My Love in Portofino, Can’t Help Falling in Love and their 2018 single Fall on Me.
The dancefloor featured a huge structure lit up by red fairylights, in front of which the DJ booth was placed on a small stage.

Dolce & Gabbana dressed the event for the couple, with MailOnline exclusively revealing on Sunday that the Italian design house sponsored the wedding as part of a huge multi-million dollar deal.
Members of the Kardashian and Jenner clans were repeatedly photographed in expensive Dolce & Gabbana outfits in the run up to the ceremony before being dressed in the label for the big day.
The worldwide coverage of the reality stars showcasing the brand’s clothes against the idyllic backdrop of the Italian Riviera is set to give millions of pounds worth of free publicity to Dolce & Gabbana which has been hit by controversies in recent years.

Kourtney, 43, and heavily tattooed Blink-182 drummer Travis, 46, have also been staying on the superyacht Regina d’Italia which is believed to be owned by Stefano Gabbana, the co-founder of Dolce & Gabbana.
A pop up Dolce & Gabbana shop, describing itself as a Galleria d’Arte, opened three days ago on the market square piazza beside the harbour in Portofino to capitalise on the public interest in the wedding.

Wild PDAs, IVF struggles, and THREE weddings: A look back at Kravis’ whirlwind romance history
They’re saying ‘I do’ for a third time this weekend in Portofino, Italy in front of a close circle of family and friends. Here, DailyMail.com takes a look back at the three weddings, wild PDAs, IVF struggles and whirlwind romance of Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker…
Travis’ first Kardashian crush on Kim
Having been a friend of the family for years, Travis Barker first showed his interest in the KarJenner clan when he confessed to first being attracted to Kim Kardashian – not Kourtney – back when she was an assistant to Paris Hilton around 2006.
‘How could you not stare at Kim? Mind you, I enjoyed hanging out with Paris, but I love curvy girls,’ Travis admitted in 2015. ‘Kim was eye candy. I was no way disrespectful to Paris, but I couldn’t keep my eyes off Kim!’
Travis went on to say he spent time with Kim in their Calabasas neighborhood and while he had a ‘crush’ on her, he said ‘nothing ever happened.’

Getting to know the family
Travis then made several appearances on Keeping Up with the Kardashians while he was still married to ex-wife Shanna Moakler, cementing his status as a true Kardashian family friend.
His daughter Alabama revealed in October 2017 that she had been bonding with the Kardashians, along with her father, though she did not specifically mention Kourtney.
‘Actually, the other night I had dinner with all of them and they were really sweet,’ she said at the time. Travis shares Alabama and a son Landon with his ex Moakler, who he was married to from 2004 to 2008.

Kourtney and Travis first sparked romance rumors when they were spotted on what appeared to be a date together in 2018 Los Angeles.
For their evening out, the duo attended an evening service at the famed celebrity Hillsong Church, and then later went out for a vegan dinner at Crossroads where they dined with Kourtney’s pal Larsa Pippen.
At the time, Kourtney had broken up with French model Younes Bendjima just a few months before.

From friends to lovers
Their relationship was confirmed in January 2021 after growing closer during the pandemic, as Kourtney recently revealed she made the first move while the pair were enjoying a friendly movie night together.
‘I was definitely always attracted to Travis. I think it was just the right time in my life,’ she said on the show this year, adding: ‘We were texting and I put it out there, like flirtatious conversation.’
After Travis failed to make a move and went to put on a second movie for them to watch, Kourtney took action: ‘I was like, “I don’t have time for this movie marathon,’” so I made the first move.’

PDA power couple
‘Kravis’ became Instagram official for Valentines in February 2021 with Kourtney posting a picture of the pair holding hands, but that was just the start of the wild PDAs that followed. By April, Travis posted a blurry snap of them making out, while they later revealed their signature move on Kourtney straddling the Blink 182 drummer in the Utah desert.
Their PDAs reached a fever pitch in August last year, when Scott Disick reached out to her ex Younes Bendjima on Instagram after seeing Kourtney straddle Travis on a gondola. He later apologized.
They made their red carpet debut at the VMAs in September last year, and their display of tongue-kissing for the cameras set the tone for many more PDA-heavy events including this year’s Met Gala.

While the couple’s romance has seen many highs, Kourtney has revealed they’ve also faced heartbreak as she’s struggled to have a child with Travis.
In an episode of the Kardashians, Kourt confessed their doctor had taken them down ‘this road of doing IVF’ saying ‘it hasn’t been the most amazing experience.’
The reality star is mother to Mason, 12; Penelope, nine; and Reign, seven — with her former partner Scott Disick, whom she dated from 2005 until 2015.
A romantic proposal
Travis popped the question in October to Kourtney, whisking her away to a beach in Montecito, California, as the special moment was captured for the Kardashians Hulu reality show.
Later, it was revealed there was drama as Kris Jenner made the call not to include Kourtney’s children in the happy moment – which resulted in her daughter Penelope becoming upset.
‘I woke up all night thinking it was a dream,’ Kourtney gushed on Instagram at the time.

Not content with just one ceremony, Kravis kicked things off with a drunken Las Vegas wedding in April this year after partying at the Grammy Awards. But the wedding was void as it was revealed the loved-up couple did not have the correct paperwork.
In the run up to their big wedding in Italy, Kravis legally tied the knot in Santa Barbara in May with her grandmother Mary Jo “MJ” Campbell present, as well as Travis’ father Randy Barker. The pair drove off in a vintage lowrider convertible with a ‘Just Married’ sign.
However, the couple really pulled out the stops for their big bash in Portofino renting out an entire castle for their family and friends. The pair chose the historic house museum Castello Brown located on a hill above Portofino harbour for their official big celebration.
