After tying the knot, the pair celebrated with tickets to a Cher concert in Sin City's Monte Carlo Resort and nabbed a picture their close friend following her performance.

The Believe singer has gushed about Treacy's creations in the past and said every she wears one of his hats she loses her breath.

The couple seemed to enjoy a casual celebration, as Treacy wore a simple blue blazer and t-shirt for the celebrations, while his partner Stefan wore a khaki shirt.

Treacy posted the image to his social media channels yesterday, to share the news with thousands of his fans.
