While much of the world was focused on Avengers: Endgame and the latest episode of Game of Thrones, Idris Elba and Sabrina Dhowre got married during a surprise wedding in Marrakesh, Morocco. The reigning “Sexiest Man Alive” and alumnus of the Marvel Cinematic Universe got engaged to the former Miss Vancouver in 2018, after dating for about a year. The proposal occurred on stage before a screening of Yardie, the directorial debut of the actor.

British Vogue reports that the couple had a three-day long celebration. Idris looked dapper as always in a custom suit, while Sabrina wore not one, but two Vera Wang gowns for the big day. The ceremony dress was a classic A-line in what looks to be smooth crepe silk. A layered bodice was accented by romantic off-the-shoulder straps, which allowed the bride’s long chandelier earrings to stand out. Her makeup was subtle and natural, while still playing up her eyes. Softly curled tendrils framed her face while the rest was pulled back in a low bun adorned with a cathedral veil. British Vogue confirms that the second gown was a slimmer V-neck style embellished with pearls, gemstones, and couture lace.
