Idris Elba officially tied the knot with girlfriend Sabrina Dhowre in a ceremony in Morocco. British Vogue shared the first photographs of the couple on Instagram. The bride wore a custom gown by Vera Wang, while the actor and “sexiest man alive” wore a bespoke suit by Ozwald Boateng.
Elba and Dhowre, a model and former Miss Vancouver, were reportedly dating from early 2017.
The couple got engaged in February 2018. This came after Elba dropped to one knee and popped the big question during a screening of his film, Yardie, at the Rio Cinema in London.
Rio Cinema confirmed the news on its Twitter account. The company wrote,
“Another Riocinema first! Still five days to Valentines Day, but Idris Elba went down on one knee and proposed to his girlfriend live on stage this morning before a preview of his film.”
According to the magazine, they exchanged vows on 26th April 2019 at the Ksar Char-Bagh hotel in Marrakesh.
The night before the ceremony, friends and family attended a “colours of the souk” themed dinner. They then attended a party at the Mandarin Oriental hotel, which reportedly emulated the atmosphere of a festival.
The London-born actor was previously married to Hanne Norgaard and Sonya Hamlin.
