Celebrity life

Written by:

 

Idris Elba has married his American fiancee Sabrina Dhowre.

 

The 46-year-old actor tied the knot with the stunning 29-year-old in Morocco on Friday.

 

Pictures on British Vogue’s Instagram account show Idris looking dapper in a custom suit from Savile Row tailor Ozwald Boateng.

 

 

His bride wowed in a classic white, off-the-shoulder and A-line gown that was custom-made by legendary designer Vera Wang, The Sun reported.

 

The couple invited the fashion magazine into their ceremony and Vogue teased just three snaps from the lavish day so far.

 

They revealed the celebrations have been spread over three days in Marrakech, with friends and family attending a ‘colours of the Souk’ themed dinner at the Amanjena.

 

On Saturday, Idris and Sabrina are set to host an all-white party at the City’s five star Mandarin Oriental hotel.

 

 

The Hollywood star popped the question to the model in February last year and Sabrina enjoyed a Hen getaway with her pals in Utah’s Amangiri resort back in March.

She whisked nine of her close pals away and the group had their own apartment in the luxurious spot, where rooms start at $A2,741 per night.

 

She shared pictures of the bride in a white robe and her girls in matching personalised rose-coloured satin dressing gowns with ‘Bride’s Squad’ emblazoned on the back of them.

Sabrina wrote on Instagram: ‘Had the most amazing weekend with the most amazing people.

 

‘I love you all so much #idrina #archyourback missing @jdebruyne @gurppanesar (sic)’

 

She also posted a boomerang of the women dancing as they crouched by the pool and captioned it with the bride emoji.

Sabrina’s pals made sure the bride-to-be had the time of her life with a private dinner and cake with ‘Future Mrs. Elba’ decorative icing.

 

The next day saw them throw a traditional Bachelorette party, with ‘Bride’ balloons and a sign which read: “Pop the champagne she is changing her name.’

 

Sabrina shared the highlights on her Instagram Story, captioning one post: “You girls are the best.’

 

Other Bride-themed treats included engagement ring candy, heart-shaped cookies, chocolates and champagne bottles.

They also all got to keep a gift bag to remember the trip by — though Sabrina didn’t reveal what was inside the party bags.

 

Meanwhile, Idris previously admitted that proposing to his fiancee was ‘the most nerve-racking thing’ he’s ever done.

 

While he was incredibly nervous throughout the whole exchange, he also made sure to make the proposal ‘pretty romantic’.

He said: ‘[Proposing] was the most nerve-racking thing for me ever. But in terms of wanting to make someone feel super special and feel my love, that was pretty romantic for me.’

 

Idris has been married twice.

 

His first marriage was to make-up artist Hanne Norgaard, known as Kim, whom he married at a register office in 1999.

 

They went on to have one child but were divorced by 2003.

 

Then in 2006, Idris married Sonya Hamlin in Las Vegas in a whirlwind romance — they were divorced four months later.
