Congrats to the newly wed couple !
ARTICLE 1: VOGUE.UK.COM - GUCCI muse Blake Lively married Ryan Reynolds in a secret wedding ceremony last night. According to reports, the pair tied the knot at Boone Hall Plantation in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, yesterday evening. The couple have been dating for a year, after meeting on the set of film Green Lantern in 2010.
The bride walked down the aisle in a couture Marchesa bridal gown, custom-made by Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig ( get all the details on the dress here!)
Florence Welch - a good friend of Lively’s – performed three songs at the reception, which was held inside a white tent on the plantation, People reports. The bride’s mother and sister were confirmed to be in the area, having been spotted dining in nearby Charleston earlier in the week – while it’s also believed that designer Christian Louboutin was in attendance.
According to a journalist from the Mount Pleasant’s local radio station – 95.1FM – it was an intimate affair.
“A few days ago, I heard Ryan was in town. Then today, lots of signs went up at Boone Hall Plantation stating that it was holding a private event – so no one could get into the area. I also started hearing rumours that a celebrity wedding was taking place,” Kelly Gukanovich told E! News. ”I am being told there were around 60 people at the event and that a local restaurant may have catered it. Ryan has always loved it here and when he got together with Blake he started to bring her here, too.”
The Hollywood pair decided to keep their engagement under wraps, despite clear indication that the relationship was getting serious when it was confirmed that they had bought a home together in Bedford, New York, several months ago.
VOGUE.COM dined with the Gossip Girl star at a Gucci event during the Venice Film Festival earlier this month – to which we witnessed Reynolds arrive in private after all the cameras had left. The couple have always opted to keep their relationship out of the media eye as much as possible, and are rarely seen in public together.
This is the second wedding for the actor, who previously married actress Scarlett Johansson back in 2008. They divorced two years later.
So far, no official comment has yet been made from either Lively or Reynolds.
ARTICLE 2: VOGUE.UK.COM - BLAKE LIVELY married Ryan Reynolds on Sunday night wearing Marchesa, the fashion house confirmed this morning. The actress walked down the aisle in a “one-of-a-kind couture bridal ballgown” designed by duo Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig.
The wedding dress featured a “hand-draped silk tulle bodice adorned with custom crystal and rose gold embroidery,” revealed a statement from the brand. It’s thought that the bride wore the gown with a pair of Christian Louboutin heels. Lively and Louboutin are close friends – the designer famously named a pair of shoes after her and was believed to be a guest at the wedding.
Marchesa also confirmed that the rest of the bridal party – thought to have included Blake’s mother and sister – “each wore a unique custom-made blush silk chiffon Marchesa gown, with crystal-embroidered detail”.
According to reports, the groom and his party all wore Burberry suits custom-made by Christopher Bailey.
The Martha Stewart Weddings magazine team were enlisted to help organise the event, alongside Charleston-based wedding planner Tara Guerard Soiree – creating an “intimate, personalised party” for the happy couple.
“Ryan, who has been a long-time fan of Charleston, chose to mark this special occasion in one of his favourite towns,” the journalist Darcy Miller posted on the official Martha Stewart Weddings blog. “From the heartfelt ceremony to the fun-filled carnival hour and elegant reception, it was a truly enchanting celebration. Congratulations to the newlyweds – thank you for looking to us for help and inspiration, and for including us on your very special day.”
Miller also revealed that the couple exchanged unique wedding rings by Lorraine Schwartz.
