Idris Elba’s Officially Off The Market– Check Out These Exclusive Photos From His Destination Wedding
Bad news ladies, another one of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelors has been taken off the market.
British actor Idris Elba, dubbed as the most attractive man of 2018, just got hitched to his model girlfriend in a lavish wedding in Morocco last weekend.
According to British Vogue, Elba married Sabrina Dhowre at the Ksar Char-Bagh hotel located in the Moroccan city of Marrakesh last Friday. As seen from the magazine’s photos, the 46-year-old actor wore a suit designed by British-born Ghanian designer Ozwald Boateng while his beautiful bride donned two custom-made Vera Wang wedding dresses.
The former Miss Vancouver’s first dress, which she wore to the ceremony, features an A-line structure with off-the-shoulder sleeves. She later on changed into her reception wedding dress which was a V-neck number decorated with pearls, gemstones, and lace. The 29-year-old bride’s makeup was reportedly done by the famous British MUA, Charlotte Tilbury.
Sean Thomas, a popular American photographer, documented their special day for British Vogue. The full feature story of the celebrity wedding will be released in the magazine’s July 2019 issue.
A Three-Day Affair
The couple utilized their time in the African country and celebrated their union onto the weekend, making their entire wedding into a three-day affair, celebrations included.
According to sources, family and friends of the newlyweds arrived in Morocco a day before the actual ceremony and were treated to days of partying and good food. The first of the many parties happened last Thursday night when Elba and Dhowre threw a themed dinner in a local souk marketplace in the popular tourist destination.
It was followed by the actual wedding reception party on Friday which was a more formal, black tie event. Another party was thrown by the couple the following night. This time it was a festival-style party at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel where everyone was requested to wear white. Guests were treated to a surprise performance from Davido, a Nigerian singer.
Inspiring Love Story
Elba and Dhowre, who have a 16-year age gap between them, first met on the set of the film, The Mountain Between Us in early 2017. According to Elba, it was quite special that they met and fell for each other while he was making a film about falling in love.
He, later on, popped the question to his then-girlfriend after just a year of dating. It can be remembered that the actor’s public gesture happened during the screening of his directorial debut film, Yardie days before Valentines. Elba was reportedly planning to wait until February 14th but decided to propose early because the ring was already ‘burning a hole’ with him.
Fortunately, Dhowre didn’t leave him hanging and said yes to his proposal. They then celebrated their engagement with a romantic dinner together.
This is the British heartthrob’s third marriage to date. His first wife is Hanne Norgaard, who’s also the mother of his daughter, Isan. They broke up after four years. He then married a property lawyer, Sonya Nicole Hamlin, but their marriage only lasted for four months.
