A few weeks ago, ladies were going crazy on Twitter after hearing some shocking news about their heartthrob, Idris Elba. As much as they were happy for him for finally finding true love, the reality that he was officially off the market hit them hard.
As soon as the news was announced, funny memes started rolling out on Twitter, with fans claiming that they were heartbroken over the fact that they’ll never have a chance with Elba now — what made these women think that they had a chance with him before?
One Day Would Hardly Be Enough
The actor/DJ went all in with a three-day ceremony in Morocco fit for his beauty queen, Sabrina Dhowre, who is now officially his wife. It was, after all, literally a life-changing moment for Idris Elba, who is quite used to being the “dream guy” for many women across the globe.
The couple exchanged vows on April 26 in Marrakesh, at the Ksar Char Bagh. In addition to the wedding celebrations, the couple treated their guests with two more nights of blissful merrymaking, but we’ll get back to that.
For the actual wedding, model Dhowre went for a stunning off-shoulder Vera Wang dress, definitely white in color. Reportedly, she had help from Law Roach, the famed celebrity stylist, in choosing this specific dress, and it was an instant hit.
The fashion police would have nothing against the beauty queen! But did you expect anything less from Law Roach? Some of his other clients include Céline Dion, Zendaya, and Ariana Grande, so it’s safe to say that he’s pretty good at what he does.
The groom, on the other hand, stepped out in a black Ozwald Boateng custom-made suit, and saying that he was dressed to kill would be the understatement of the year.
Idris Elba always looks sharp for any occasion, just imagine how much higher a notch could he go for the most important day of his life? Your guess is as good as ours!
After the exchange of vows, Dhowre later changed into another Vera Wang number, this time a V-neck dress with the perfect embroidery and studded with gemstones and pearls. The finishing was couture lace, and hats off to the designer for making such a delicate dress that fitted the bride beautifully.
Morocco at Its Finest
As stated earlier, the wedding ceremony itself wasn’t the only apart of a bigger celebration that lasted the entire weekend.
On Thursday, the day before the wedding, the couple treated their guests to a rehearsal dinner at hotel Amanjena that featured a pompous display of fire dancers and camels.
How else would the guests appreciate that they were truly in Morocco? Souk colors themed the rehearsal dinner, in appreciation to the area’s marketplace.
On Saturday, the day after the wedding, the newlyweds and their guests gathered their jovial selves at the Mandarin Oriental with a strict all-white dress code. You can imagine how nice everyone must have cleaned up!
Idris Elba proposed to Dhowre in February last year, after the two had been dating since some time in 2017. Elba has The Mountain Between Us to thank, as he met his wife while filming the flick in Canada.
We wonder, did he know she was the one he would end up marrying the second he laid his eyes on her?
