Love is in the air and wedding bells are ringing — Ciara and Russell Wilson have totally tied the knot! The 30-year-old singer and 27-year-old NFL star have had fans on the edge of their seats this past week as their nuptials creeped ever closer, with no exact date or deets revealed. But now all of that has changed: The pair has officially said “I do,” and we have all of the amazing info.
After meeting last April and getting engaged in March of this year, it’s been a whirlwind romance for the two lovebirds, but you know what they say: When you know, you know.
The magical ceremony took place at Peckforton Castle in Cheshire, England — a setting perfect for a fairytale wedding. Aged stone walls, towers and turrets, green lawns and sunny skies were the backdrop for the happiest day of their lives.
Ciara’s dress is said to be a custom Roberto Cavalli, designed by Peter Dundas, who currently acts as the label’s creative director. The floor-length, form-fitting, sleeveless dress featured a halter neckline, detailed bodice and flowing skirt. She chose a simple-yet-elegant ponytail to make her spectacular dress stand out. Pics show the gorgeous bride walking hand-in-hand with her new hubby, who wore sleek pure black.
The wedding guests included plenty of friends and family, including Jennifer Hudson, who posted a pic to Instagram just before the big event. Wearing a gorgeous pink dress, she added the caption, “Here we go guys!” Bridesmaids Kelly Rowland and Serena Williams were also on hand to celebrate the occasion.
As the bride and groom continue to enjoy their special day, we’re sending them a big congratulations!
