Their love story blossomed beautifully as they quickly got engaged in 2005. On February 21, 2005, Dessi and Nielsen organized a wedding ceremony at Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic. However, the couple's nuptials were not legal because the actress hadn't finalized her divorce from her fourth husband, Raoul Meyer.

The pair's official marriage ceremony was held in July 2006, when they tied the knot in Malta, Italy. Their wedding was held at the five-star Radisson SAS Golden Sands Resort & Spa. Talking about marriage, Brigitte had this to say about her husband:

I still believe in marriage and I have believed in all my marriages, although maybe not the one with Sylvester Stallone as I was really pressured to marry him. My current husband, Mattia Dessi, is 15 years younger than me and I'm really happy now. He's probably more mature than me mentally, but physically we're not the same and I do wonder if he will love me when I am 60 and he is 45.
