It is a disheartening moment for all the single ladies who had an eye for Idris Elba because the Golden Globe-winning star, has finally tied the knot with his longtime girlfriend, Sabrina Dhowre, and he is officially off the market. And what can we say? We are happy for him.
This wedding comes a year after the star got on his knee and popped the question to the amazement of fans and those present during a film screening in London.
Their big day was on Friday in Marrakesh, at the Ksar Char-Bagh hotel. As would have been expected, the wedding was epic and memorable. It began on Thursday with a “color of Souk” themed dinner at Amnjena which was attended by friends and family. This was followed by a beautiful wedding celebration. The next day, Saturday, the couple attended an all-white at the Mandarin Oriental.
It was not only the number of days that made the wedding remarkable. Dhowre’s gown was simple yet elegant. It was an off-the-shoulder white A-line gown by Vera Wang designs. Later she wore a V-neck style embroidered dress with gemstones, pearls, and couture lace, also by Vera Wang Designs. The groom, on the other hand, had an Ozwald Boateng’s suit on. Ozwald and Idris are old friends, and regular workmates on red carpet looks.
So how did the love story begin? The two fell in love with each other while making a movie which was basically about falling in love, The Mountain Between Us. They brought their romance to the spotlight, and their first public appearance was in September 2017 for the Festival premiere for Molly’s Game. Apparently, Dhowre had never had a red carpet before, and Idris Elba was not a big fan either, so the two were not only in love but they shared something in common too.
After that event, the lovebirds kept showing up together in big events like Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s nuptials.
Judging from his recent constant smiles, Idris Elba seems to have finally found the one. Besides his romance with Naiyana Garth which bore a son, Winston, in 2014, the star had previously been married to Hanne Norgaard with whom he had his first child and daughter, Isan. His next marriage was a brief one with Sonya Hamlin in 2006.
We are crossing our fingers for a longer or even forever marriage with Dhowre, who seems to be head over heels in love and was over excited for the wedding.
