They are said to have officially tied the knot in a discreet Buddhist ceremony earlier this month at Tina's estate in Kuesnacht.
Swiss media reported that the estate, called the Chateau Algonquin, was decorated with around 70,000 red and yellow roses from Holland.
The 120 wedding guests poured water over the couple's hands in a traditional Buddhist water blessing ritual.
Tina requested that female attendees wore white and beige, while the men sported traditional black tuxedos. Tina is said to have worn a custom-made Giorgio Armani gown.

Reporters and well-wishers were kept at a distance from the property, with police even establishing an exclusion zone at the lake to prevent onlookers congregating on boats.
This isn't Tina's first wedding – the soul legend divorced her first husband, Ike Turner, in the late 1970s after years of reported domestic violence.
