Later, she changed into a V-neck style embroidered dress with pearls and gemstones and finished with couture lace," noted British Vogue.While Elba and Dhowre officially got hitched on April 26 in a stylish black-tie ceremony in Marrakesh, their wedding celebration actually began the day before with an extravagant "colors of the Souk" rehearsal dinner hosted at the Amanjena five-star resort in Marrakesh.
"There was a huge festive party with camels and fire dancers and dancing," People Magazine quoted a source as saying.
The newlyweds are keeping the celebration going with an exuberant all-white party held today at the luxurious Mandarin Oriental hotel. For this third and final day of their marriage ceremony, Elba and Dhowre have planned an eccentric banquet meant to mimic the atmosphere of a festival.As The Inquisitr previously reported, Elba and Dhowre got engaged in February of 2018. The actor made international headlines after a very romantic video of him getting down to one knee and popping the question at a private screening of his film Yardie in Dalston, London, immediately went viral.
The couple first met in 2017 in Canada and spent some time together on the set of the drama film The Mountain Between Us. Now that the two are husband and wife, Elba is a married man for the third time in his life.
In 2006, the actor wed Sonya Nicole Hamlin, whom he divorced just four months into the marriage. Before that, Elba was married to Hanne Norgaard. The couple stayed together for four years and share a 17-year-old daughter, Isan. He also fathered a son with ex Naiyana Garth in 2014.
