Blake Lively and Ryan Renolds actually wed
When a gossip rag with a reputation for friendly dodgyness like People (not to be confused with Australian People which has a reputation for naked dodgyness), quotes “a source” saying that a celebrity couple have been secretly wed, you tend not to believe it. Mostly because they’ve been saying these things variously about Brangelina and whoever Jennifer Anniston is with for years along with a melange of other double star couples of whatever moment. And look how that turned out for K. Stew and R. Patz.
Anyway, when it comes to tanned lookalikes Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, it appears they were actually right. News broke of the secret nuptials yesterday, but now that Martha Stewart Weddings has released a list of brand names involved longer than Blake’s weave, we’re finally buying it. The pair have been dating for a year, and never officially announced their engagement, which is why news of the wedding has made such waves.
The bride wore... Marchesa, the New York based label known for making insanely, ridiculously OTT red carpet wear. This one “featured hand-draped silk tulle bodice which was tripped with crystal and rose gold embroidery” Peep the gallery above for a look at some of Blake’s best Marchesa looks. She propped the frock on a pair of custom-made Christian Louboutin high heels.
The groom wore... Head to toe Burberry custom-created by Christopher Bailey especially for the occasion.
The rings were... Lorriane Schwartz.
The location was... Boone Hall Plantation in Charleston, South Carolina.
Martha Stewart Weddings said... (who presumably have the pictures exclusively) “From the heartfelt ceremony to the fun-filled carnival hour and elegant reception, it was a truly enchanting celebration. “
