English actor, producer, director, musician, DJ and rapper, Idris Elba is finally off the market. Sorry ladies! The 2018 sexiest man alive according to People Magazine tied the knot with his fiancée, Sabrina Dhowre. The new Mrs Elba is a model and 2014 Miss Vancouver.
Idris Elba and Sabrina Dhowre who have been engaged since February 2018 finally sealed their union on April 26 at the Ksar Char-Bagh hotel in Marrakesh, Morocco.
Sabrina who is of part Somalian descent looked stunning in two custom dresses by Vera Wang while Idris wore a bespoke suit by British-Ghanaian designer Ozwald Boateng.
Sabrina’s first dress for the main ceremony was an off-the-shoulder white crepe A-line dress. She finished this off with a cathedral length light ivory tulle veil with hand placed macramé lace and a stunning pair of drop earrings.
According to People’s Magazine, her dress featured a hem with the words “This train carries no wrong do-ers” embroidered on it. The quote is a romantic tribute to Idris Elba’s tattoo.
For the reception, Sabrina and her stylist, Law Roach opted for a light ivory V-neck mermaid gown with hand placed macramé lace accented by crystal and pearl beaded embroidery.
But their wedding celebrations did not just happen in one day. It was a 3-night affair. According to Vogue, the celebrations kicked off on Thursday as the couple held a rehearsal dinner at Amanjena with a theme, “colours of the Souk.” A source later revealed to People’s magazine “there was a huge festive party with camels and fire dancers and dancing.”
The celebrations entered its final leg on Saturday night with one more party: a festival-style gathering at the Mandarin Oriental with an all-white dress code. The guest list is yet to be revealed but Idris Elba had told Efe One of Stealth management that he wanted Davido to surprise his wife. Efe One and Vannessa Amadi-Ogbonna delivered on that and according to Efe, Sabrina was truly surprised!
All the photos and juicy details from their wedding and more will appear in the July issue of British Vogue.
