Manson photographed Von Teese for the December 2002 issue of Playboy.
The wedding was officiated by surrealist film director and comic book writer Alejandro Jodorowsky.
They reportedly exchanged vows in front of approximately 60 guests, including burlesque performer Catherine D'lish, Lisa Marie Presley, Eric Szmanda, Jessicka and Christian Hejnal.
On November 28, 2005, Manson and Von Teese were married in a private, non-denominational ceremony in their home.
A larger ceremony was held on December 3 at Gurteen Castle in Kilsheelan, County Tipperary, Ireland, the home of their friend, Gottfried Helnwein.
At the age of ten, a young Brian Warner was photographed in the make-up of KISS drummer, Peter Criss.
It has been thought, though never confirmed or denied by Manson that his stage theatrics and make-up partially stem from his influence by KISS as a child.
So I became obsessed with it, watching movies like The Exorcist and the Omen and reading prophetic books like Centuries by Nostradamus, 1984 by George Orwell, and the novelized version of the film a Thief in the Night." Manson's interest in rock 'n roll music stemmed from a childhood friend who introduced him to bands such as Kiss, Dio, Black Sabbath, and Rainbow and other bands of that genre.
Out of these bands, KISS stood out amongst the crowd, Manson was a card-carrying member of the KISS ARMY and attended his first concert with his father in 1979.
Manson had been a long time fan of Dita Von Teese, and was a member of her website.
They first met when he asked her to dance in one of his music videos. On his thirty-second birthday, she arrived with a bottle of absinthe, and they became a couple.
According to his autobiography The Long Hard Road Out of Hell, Warner is of German and Polish ancestry on his father's side.
