Congratulations are in order for Ciara and Russell Wilson! The pop singer and athlete married yesterday in England among friends and family, after which she posted a triumphant picture on Instagram with the caption, “We are the Wilsons!”
Ciara and Russell got engaged in March and shared a series of super-cute proposal photos on social media. But why marry in England? Because it has castles that you can get married in, obviously. The lovebirds tied the knot at Peckforton Castle, Page Six reports, a 19th-century castle surrounded by 4,000 acres of forest in the area of Cheshire. We have to warn you, if you look at the castle’s web site, you will fall down a hole planning your fantasy wedding .
Let’s talk for a minute about the important stuff: her gorgeous wedding gown. In addition to a long veil, Ciara wore a white dress with long, bell-sleeves and a deep-V neckline with lace-ups at the bust. US Weekly reports her gown was “custom-made Cavalli Couture” with glass beading and Chantilly lace throughout. It really is quite stunning and we hope she’ll release more photos soon so we can see more details!
Russell Wilson, who is a quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks, wore a Giorgio Armani tuxedo, US Weekly added. Ciara’s young son also wore an Armani tux, Page Six said.
We look forward to hearing more confirmed about the nuptials, from the food to the guest list, throughout the week. And of course, honeymoon photos! (G-rated ones.)
Congrats, Ciara and Russell!
