Ciara Marries Russell Wilson!

07 Jul 2016

The singer wed the American football player in a fairy tale English wedding

R&B star Ciara has tied the knot with American football star Russell Wilson at the historic Peckforton Castle in Cheshire, England, with guests including Kelly Rowland, Lala Anthony and Jennifer Hudson.

Hours after the ceremony, the bride shared a picture of the newlyweds on her Instagram. "We Are the Wilsons!" she captioned the snap, in which the couple are smiling for the camera after exchanging vows.

The 30-year-old bride wore a long-sleeved white gown, which was custom made by Roberto Cavalli's creative director, Peter Dundas, while she also wore a cathedral-length veil.

Tennis star and Ciara’s close friend Serena Williams was expected to attend the wedding, but is said to have skipped the celebrations as she prepares to compete in the semi-finals of the Wimbledon tennis championship in London.

Ciara and Russell became engaged in March after less than a year of dating. The marriage is Ciara's first, although she was previously engaged to rapper Future, the father of her son Future Zahir.
