Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart got married on Saturday, November 25, 2019 in an intimate ceremony at Ca’ Venier in Venice, Italy. Many stars were in attendance, including Kate Winslet, Naomi Watts, and Emily Mortimer. The British couple exchanged vows in front of 300 witnesses, including their children, who were also present at the wedding.
The newlyweds held a press conference on December 2, where they answered questions about the wedding. Since then, fans have been wondering what happened. Here is all the information you need about their big day.
The ceremony took place at the historic Ca’ Venier, a former residence of composer Richard Wagner and a well-known gallery for artists such as Titian and Claude Monet. The building is now a museum and cultural center focused on displaying the works of famous artists from the 18th century. It also features an art collection that contains pieces by many of the world’s greatest artists, including Rembrandt.
The space has three floors, with the first two made for partying and celebrations, and the third floor reserved for silent reflection and prayer. The venue also features a library, with some sources claiming it’s the largest in Europe. There is ample parking nearby, and guests could take a stroll along the romantic Grand Canal.
Kristen wore a custom-made, cream colored dress by Christian Dior and carried a bouquet of white orchids. The dress features an open-back design, with a high-waisted fit and a train that extends past the floor. The designer said the dress was inspired by the famous white wedding dresses of the early 20th century and called it a “monumental” wedding dress.
For the occasion, Pattinson chose a classic black suit with a pale blue shirt and a red tie. He matched Kristen’s dress with a cream-colored waistcoat and wore a flower crown.
Kristen’s wedding cake was made in the shape of a traditional German flag and featured a portrait of her and Pattinson as well as a sculpture of a rose, which is associated with both their names. The cake was unveiled during the wedding’s cocktail hour, with guests able to sample mini versions.
The bride’s bouquet was designed by British flower designer David Austin and was fashioned after the flag of the United Kingdom, which was chosen by the couple for their marriage. Guests were able to take a closer look at the bouquet when it was presented to the bride during the wedding ceremony.
The ceremony ended with a romantic dance for the couple, after which they exchanged their vows and kissed for the first time as husband and wife. At the end of the night, the newlyweds bowed to applause as they made their way into the evening’s reception, which was followed by a wedding cake cutting and a champagne toast.
What was the main reason for the wedding?
According to Vanity Fair, Stewart had been seeing an unidentified woman through most of 2019, and the stress of the long-term relationship took a toll on the actor. On September 29, 2019, he filed for divorce from his wife of 13 years, Shellie, citing “irreconcilable differences.” In June 2019, Vanity Fair reported that Stewart had split from the longtime companion, citing “irreconcilable differences.”
The following month, Stewart made his first appearance at the annual Vanity Fair Oscar Party in Los Angeles, wearing a black suit with a white shirt and black tie. He also sported a blonde wig from the film Lady bird, which he wore for the occasion.
But these appearances were only a way of life for the 45-year-old actor, who has been open about his numerous sexual encounters and previous relationships. In March 2019, he confirmed that he and Shellie were working through their issues, and in June of that year, he hinted that they were close to reconciliation. After the Cannes Film Festival in early July, Stewart returned to the U.S. and dedicated the rest of the year to focusing on his family. He also stayed away from social media, where he often shared photos of his glamorous life with friends. On October 1, 2019, Stewart deleted his Instagram account, only to bring it back the following month.
Many famous faces were in attendance at the wedding, including Kate Winslet, Naomi Watts, Emily Mortimer, and Tom Cruise. It was reported that Stewart spent months in secret planning the event, and even had a team of stylists and makeup artists work tirelessly to ensure that he looked incredible on the big day. He was also nervous about his weight, and worked with a personal trainer to get back into shape for the wedding. The guests arrived at the wedding venue in private boats and parked cars, with many choosing to arrive by horse and carriage.
What was the most memorable moment of the wedding?
The biggest moment of the day was undoubtedly the bride’s walk down the aisle. Since the ceremony was a very private affair, Stewart had no idea what was going to happen, and was utterly shocked when he saw Winslet walking down the aisle towards him. The actress wore a custom-made dress by the designer Alber Elbaz and carried a bouquet of orchids. A few guests could be seen crying, as the bride made her way to the altar.
Walking down the aisle was a huge moment for Stewart, as he said in a recent interview with Vanity Fair: “I knew it was going to be emotional, because it was such a private moment, but I didn’t think it would be that emotional. Standing there with my wife, looking into each other’s eyes, it was all I could think about. If I had to pick one thing, it would be the moment we looked at each other and saw the person we were meant to be with for the rest of our lives.”
After the wedding, the pair held a press conference where they answered questions about the ceremony. Since then, fans have been wondering what will happen now that Stewart and Pattinson are officially man and wife. What will their marital status be? Who will adopt their children? Will they continue to work together?
According to Vanity Fair, Stewart and Pattinson plan to move forward with their lives as a married couple and put their drama behind them. They also thanked the public for their support, and shared their excitement about being together and focusing on their family.
What are the upcoming plans for Stewart and Pattinson?
The most recent developments involved Stewart and Pattinson’s daughters, whose custody they settled on the day of the wedding. Stewart and Pattinson have also been quietly buying a house in Los Angeles, with plans to furnish and decorate it with items from their personal collections. The building, which was purchased for them by a friend, will be a place for them to work and live in relative privacy. They will also maintain their friendship with Winslet, Watts, and Mortimer, as well as continue to attend parties and events that interest them.
