Idris Elba married Sabrina Dhowre in Marrakesh, Morocco on Friday

Idris Elba is officially a married man. He married Sabrina Dhowre in Marrakesh on Friday – he and Sabrina had gotten engaged in February 2018, when he proposed to her at a screening of one of his films. They’ve been together for several years now. Interestingly enough, Idris and Sabrina gave their wedding photos to British Vogue to publish, I guess they decided to maybe use British Vogue as their official photographer or something. The full wedding pictorial will be in the July issue of British Vogue, but for now, we can enjoy the teaser images Vogue posted on their Instagram.

They exchanged vows at the Ksar Char Bagh hotel. The bride wore a custom off-the-shoulder wedding gown by Vera Wang for the ceremony, then changed into another Vera Wang gown for the reception. Guests were in black tie. According to British Vogue, “The celebrations have been spread out over three days. Friends and family attended a ‘colours of the Souk’ themed dinner the night before the wedding at the Amanjena.”

Idris and Sabrina both look crazy-beautiful in these photos and I have high hopes that they’ll make it last… for a while. I mean, Idris’s romantic history is extremely messy (not all of it his own making) but I feel like Sabrina is a stabilizing force. Maybe? So congrats to them and good luck.

    They both look beautiful. How many times has he been married, though?

  2. Mia4s says:

    They both look gorgeous but yeah he’s always seemed…restless. Well congratulations and fingers crossed!

    I saw a few people surprised that he sold his wedding photos to a magazine. Where did this idea come from that Idris isn’t fame-hungry? I don’t even mean that as a bad thing (more power to him), but to me he’s always seemed more than happy to play the game. 🤷‍♀️

    Everyone looks gorgeous and happy. Congratulations to the newlyweds.

    The collective sound of hearts breaking all over the world was kind of funny though.

      Mine inclusive😭.but dang sabrina is GORGEOUS

    • Snazzy says:

      Mine too! I will require thoughts and prayers in this difficult time

    • PlainJane says:

      My heart was one of those broken as well. My extreme denial was holding me together, but no more. Time to adopt another cat.

      I wish them the very best! They look so happy and in love! Congrats to them!

    The dress is lovely. Simple and elegant.

  5. Lisa says:

    She is really the definition of a Gorgeous Bride. That dress is perfect. Understated and elegant. The jewelry is on point. He is handsome as always. Hope this is going to last. I can see them having lots of children

  6. babsjohnson says:

    Aw, they look so happy. I love this.

  7. Giddy says:

    These are some of the most gorgeous wedding pictures I’ve ever seen. They are both absolutely radiant. It’s so nice to see the groom as excited as the bride!$

    Cool, how old are they I wonder

    • Snowflake says:

      46 and 29

      • i says:

        Ah, a pretty predictable nearly 2 decade age gap (although they don’t look that far apart, to be fair). At least she’s not in the standard Hollywood star wife/girlfriend sweet spot of 18-25.

      • Eliza says:

        I think she looks younger than her age, and him older (although still very handsome). So it looks like father and daughter. But while 17 years is a huge gap, but not as bad as I originally thought looking at the pictures.

  9. Snowflake says:

    Looking at pics, he never really did anything for me. But then I saw him in one movie where he was a Dad, single, trying to take care of his kids while the Mother was hanging out with gang members. He was hot in that, has a nice body. Facially I don’t think he’s that handsome. But i guess I’m in the minority. I’ve always had different tastes in guys than my female friends.

  10. Andrea says:

    They look lovely, best of luck to them.
    I still can’t get over how long her arms are… You can’t see it here, but check out other pics of her

  11. AnnaKist says:

    Don’t know much about him – I first heard about him on this site! His new wife is stunning.

  12. Chica71 says:

    He probably gave the pics to British Vogue no as favor to Enniful.

    • Sigh... says:

      Yup. Someone on Lipstick Alley posted an IG pic of Elba in Morocco as early as Thursday and said they were getting married and that Enniful was there and the bride was styled by Zendaya’s go-to.

  13. minx says:

    I’ll always think of the first time I saw him—as Patsy’s rented hookup on AbFab.

  14. Lucia says:

    I always felt Idris was a very sensitive fellow. One of those who fell apart too easily. Since hooking up with Sabrina, I feel he’s been doing really well and I don’t think it’s just because of her. Even before they got together I think he’s started working hard to stay healthy and not screw up any longer. The universe decided to reward him for that with this pretty lady.

    I hope they have a lifetime of happiness together. Also, I love her wedding dress.

  15. Jane says:

    The third picture made me go, “Awwwwwwww!!!!!!” I have to try and find that magazine in July. I hope my Barnes and Noble in my area sells them. I’d love to see the rest of the pictures!

  16. intheknow says:

    I guess I’ll take my remaining eggs and hang them out to dry. Idris wont be coming by.

  17. entine says:

    twitter memes were glorious, I did not need to add my sorrow to the pity party hahahahaha

  18. incognito08 says:

    I was skimming my Facebook feed and sitting next to my hubby when I discovered that my dear Idris betrayed me and married Sabrina. I gasped and stifled a sob before I quickly regained my composure. My hubby has always known that Idris is my crush and snickered at my reaction. I need to drown my sorrows in a bottle of wine. *sob*

  19. MsIam says:

    Wish them both the best! Her dress is gorgeous!

  20. Shortandsassy says:

    I see he married “the rebound” after I told him I wouldn’t leave my husband for him. LOL. In all seriousness, they are a gorgeous couple and I wish them happiness.

  21. Lucy2 says:

    Beautiful couple!

  22. elimaeby says:

    Oh, man. He is my #1 celebrity crush, so I am supremely jealous, but she looked absolutely lovely. My best wishes them. That’s the nicest I can manage being on a Monday morning after a rain-soaked commute.

  23. Case says:

    They’re a lovely couple, and I love him as an actor. I was surprised to see these photos though — Idris is always framed as being super chill and not about the fame game, but selling your wedding pics isn’t too common these days.
