The mum-of-three rocked up to her wedding with a white Dolce & Gabbana mini dress with a magnificent veil, embroidered with the image of the Virgin Mary which her new husband has tattooed on his head.
Although Barker has publicly spoken about being raised a Catholic and his new wife has also shared plenty of texts about the faith and Bible quotes via her Instagram Stories, the couple have been criticised for their 'lack of ties to the Catholic faith'.
“Kinda weird that kourtney [sic] wedding is like this catholic ‘aesthetic’ like the Virgin Mary on her dress and her wedding veil ??” one person wrote on Twitter.
A second added: “I just really feel like Travis & Kourtney [sic] wedding is mocking the catholic religion? They don’t symbolize religious people at all, just feels like mockery. I’m not catholic but just doesn’t sit right with me.”
While a third fan said they were 'happy' for the newlyweds, but argued that 'liturgical garments used during mass are not something fashionable'.
Another person went as far as to suggest they were 'offended' by Kardashian’s short gown, writing: “I’m just going to say it point blank. Kourtney Kardashian’s use of the Blessed Mother in her outfit(s) during her wedding weekend was extremely offensive to me as a Catholic.
"I have a right to feel offended by it.”
Well, Barker, previously told Vice he was raised Catholic. “I got the Virgin Mary tattooed on my foreman when I was 18, 19. And I was brought up Catholic,” he said in a November 2015 interview.
He added: “I definitely pray; I believe in God. I definitely think I was blessed. So I’m not at church every day and I’m not pushing religion on people.
"But I believe in God and I pray and my kids pray."
The couple have also faced some criticism for giving 'free publicity' to fashion designer Dolce & Gabbana, who dressed the family for the wedding.
“I love kourtney and travis, but dolce and gabbana dressing the whole fam for the wedding is not it,” one person argued.
Another added: “Dolce & Gabbana have been trying to revive their brand for problematic body shaming and racist comments. So this display is a real bargain for the KarJenners and a real media coup for D&G.”
