Rob Pattinson’s wedding to his fiancee, Stella McCartney, was one of the most anticipated events of the year. The famous British designer wed the Hollywood actor in a small ceremony in Venice, Italy, in October 2015. Since that day, the couple has been trying to keep their wedding plans private. They have kept the guest list small, confirmed only a few of their friends and family members, and held an intimate reception. However, despite their best efforts, some news has inevitably slipped out.
McCartney, 52, chose a white lace dress for her wedding day. The designer noted that he had originally envisioned a more elaborate celebration with a church wedding, but the couple wanted something more laidback. According to Vogue, McCartney is a huge fan of Rob’s work and was especially impressed with his performance as Edward Cullen in the Twilight films. She noted that she had initially met the actor when she was designing clothes for Victoria Beckham, and that she had been a ‘huge fan’ of his ever since.
McCartney is a big supporter of environmental causes and was keen to tie the knot in a sustainable way. She and her husband hired two carriages to transport their guests to the ceremony, which was held at the Venice Lace Hotel. The ivory-colored dress features a sweetheart neckline, long and slender sleeves with delicate lace, and a floral print that reads ‘vegetarian’ in the Italian style. According to Vogue, Stella has managed to keep a fairly low-profile since her nuptials, but is still regularly seen at fashion events in London.
Less than a month after the wedding, Stella gave birth to a son. The couple named their newborn son Louis. In an interview with Vanity Fair, Rob shared his excitement at becoming a father for the first time and the first thing he noticed about his new baby boy was his beautiful gray eyes.
The actor gushed about his newborn son in a series of adorable Instagram posts. In one image, he is holding Louis while wearing a pale blue dress. The posts include several photos of the proud father with his baby boy. According to Page Six, the family was in New York City in early January for the Grammy Awards, where Rob and Stella posed for photos with Louis. The family was also spotted visiting the Met Museum and the Bronx Zoo in New York. On social media, Rob has been trying to keep a low profile as his wife’s fame grows, but he has occasionally shared photos of their son.
McCartney and Rob held a private reception for about 50 of their closest friends and family members at the Corinthia Hotel, which they had previously used as a location for the premiere of their movie, Dumplin’. The actor opened the reception by thanking his guests for coming and sharing the day with them. He also added that they had had the ‘privilege’ of marrying a designer who was a ‘big fan’ of his work.
The evening was a celebration of Rob’s achievements in Hollywood and a way for the family to thank their friends and fans for being there for them during this time. Stella shared her appreciation for her husband’s fans in a tweet following the ceremony, noting that she was ‘honored’ to have such an ‘amazing’ group of people as her husband’s ‘family’ and friends in attendance. She also confirmed that the couple had chosen to keep their wedding plans ‘very private’ in order to ensure they could enjoy the celebration of their marriage.
While many stars wed over the festive season, Rob and Stella chose to buck the trend by keeping their wedding plans under wraps. Perhaps mindful of his new wife’s fame, the actor has kept a low profile since the wedding. However, his fans will be able to get their fix of Rob in early March, when he starts work on the third season of the blockbuster series, Outlander. The role will see the 55-year-old return to Scotland for a tour of his native land. He will then head to New York for the season finale, shooting in May.
Rob has also been teasing fans with glimpses of his wedding day on social media. While most of his posts feature his wife and son, the occasional shot shows off his bachelorhood. While some may assume that the actor is trying to keep a low profile, it seems that he is keen to share his excitement about tying the knot with his beloved and to expose his fans to some of the most memorable days of his life.
It is safe to say that the world will be watching when Rob and Stella marry. This year has certainly been a big year for the couple as they reached a milestone anniversary. The actor has been busy filming the third season of Outlander, which will be seen by audiences all over the world, and just a month after the wedding, gave birth to their son. While the fame may come with its perks, it has undoubtedly proven to be a challenge, particularly in the months since the wedding.
