It was only a matter of time before the media discovered that the couple we’ve all been waiting for arrived. On Monday, it was officially revealed that photographer Marcus Piggott and actress Rose Mcgowan Walsh are now husband and wife. The announcement was made by Walsh’s representative who revealed that the wedding took place on Saturday, July 14, 2019. The wedding was attended by Walsh’s father, mother, sister, and brother along with Piggott’s parents and grandparents. Walsh wore a stunning dress made of 1,400 Swarovski crystals and a three-tier tiara. Piggott wore a light grey suit and a simple white shirt. There were 400 guests in attendance.
The couple began dating in 2015 after meeting aboard a private jet owned by Walsh’s family. It was later revealed that J.K. Rowling, her mother, and Walsh’s godmother were all present for the wedding. The wedding marks the end of an arduous year for the couple as they embarked on their post-wedding vacation. Both looked relaxed and happy as they posed for pictures with guests and family.
How To Tell Pattinson And Kristen Stewart Are Happily Married
It has been almost a year since we’ve been anticipating the wedding of the year. Since the beginning of this year, there have been multiple articles and podcasts dedicated to whether or not the couple will tie the knot. Their celebrity and social media followings as well as their constant schedule of public appearances have made it one of the most followed and talked about celebrity weddings of the year. The hype is completely warranted, as the celebrity couplings of 2019 will undoubtedly be remembered for their fairy tale wedding stories.
It was reported in April of this year that the couple was taking their time getting engaged. While they were long anticipated to marry, insiders claim that Stewart’s busy schedule made the process of planning the wedding difficult. It was also revealed that the pair had been engaged for several months and had been plotting their big day since February. Since then, we’ve been waiting impatiently for the wedding of the year. The couple finally made the news official on Monday, and we couldn’t be happier for them.
While both have kept a notable social media presence throughout their relationship, Stewart has recently taken up blogging and vlogging. She has also become a regular contributor to Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue and is set to launch a children’s book this fall. In late June, she made her fashion television debut on the August 2020 cover of Vogue UK, followed by her second cover appearance in September 2020.
The Wedding Date
As the wedding date approached, the couple continued to keep details of the big day under wraps. According to Us Weekly, the wedding was initially planned for October 2019, but was pushed back multiple times due to Stewart’s involvement in the Broadway production of the Harry Potter franchise. While the couple tried to reschedule the wedding a few times, it was ultimately postponed to July 14.
The wedding was originally scheduled to take place in London, but the venue was changed to Dublin for unspecified reasons. One of the reasons for the switch may have been to avoid a potential terrorist attack. It has also been reported that some of Stewart’s family and friends feared the presence of an infamous British tabloid, the News Of The World, which was shut down earlier this year. The decision was made to move the wedding to a neutral location to avoid any controversy.
Rose McGowan And Mark Walton Are Husband And Husband
On Saturday, July 14, 2019, Rose McGowan and Mark Walton wed in a sunset ceremony at a private estate in Ireland. According to a representative for McGowan, the couple had originally planned to wed in an intimate ceremony in California, but Walton’s schedule prevented them from making the trip. The location of the wedding changed numerous times before settling on a weekend at a remote Irish estate, where the couple could enjoy some privacy.
Attending the wedding were Rose’s parents, Robert and Estelle, and McGowan’s parents, Jean and Gordon. Close friends of the couple included Walton’s parents, Betty and Jim, as well as McGowan’s godmother, Margaret McGlynn. McGowan wore a floral print dress, while Walton wore a black suit. Following the ceremony, the couple took some time to reflect on their union while enjoying a private dinner.
What About Aubrey And Lucia?
While we’re happy for Walsh and Piggott, it’s only natural to wonder about the other two celebrity weddings of the year. First off, let’s discuss the Luca Blanquette and Alana Paterson, the celebrity duos of the year. Like Walsh and Piggott, the pair have been dating for several years and were finally ready to walk down the aisle in style. The difference is that Blanquette and Paterson’s intimate ceremony was broadcast live on social media, resulting in over a million people tuning in. To this day, the event remains one of the biggest media moments of the year.
While the two have kept a low profile since then, it was only a matter of time before their wedding was revealed. On September 9, 2020, just three weeks after the Walsh and Piggott wedding, Paterson tweeted that she and Blanquette would wed on October 4. Since then, Twitter has been abuzz with chatter about the upcoming wedding. With just over 100 days to go, the pressure is on for the bride-to-be to walk down the aisle in an elaborate spectacle.
In addition to celebrity weddings, the year of 2019 was also filled with celebrity political events. In January, musician and activist Harry Belafonte married Calista Broadbent. The couple tied the knot at a private residence in Los Angeles, surrounded by family and friends. Belafonte wore a black tuxedo and a purple tie as he recited vows to his new bride. Their wedding marked the end of a long and courageous battle against dementia, which Belafonte has been fighting since his father, Edward, was stricken with the disease in 2017. The singer has been a prominent figure in the fight against Alzheimer’s, performing at countless fundraisers and collaborating with organizations like the Alzheimer’s Association and the Jazz Foundation of America.
Later that month, former First Lady of the United States, Rosalynn Smith, wed film producer Graham Yost. The couple decided to get hitched in London, enjoying the opportunity to host a reception at the country estate, Rosalynn’s parents’ residence. Like many of the weddings this year, the Smith and Yost wedding was celebrated on social media, drawing a large audience that watched the event unfold online.
December was filled with high-profile political events, beginning with U.S. Senator John McCain’s daughter, Bridget, tying the knot with actor Russell Crowe. Like Belafonte and Broadbent, the couple decided to keep details of the wedding under wraps, but it was a matter of time before the news broke. On December 17, John McCain revealed that he and Crowe had tied the knot a month earlier, in a private ceremony in Dublin. On December 31, Bridget released a statement confirming that she and Crowe were indeed married in an intimate ceremony on December 18. The pair plan to wed in a bigger ceremony next year.
So What Does the Future Hold?
While we eagerly await the weddings of the year 2022, it’s important to take a step back and appreciate the fact that these weddings happened at all. Looking back at this year, it’s easy to be overwhelmed by the enormity of the events and their associated pressure. Yet, at the same time, there’s a sense of wonder that these celebrity couples were able to keep their plans so closely guarded. With so much scrutiny present day-to-day, it’s remarkable that these high-profile individuals were able to pull off these large-scale wedding ceremonies without letting the mask slip for even a moment.
These are just a few of the famous weddings of the year. There were so many other unforgettable moments, from Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin’s engagement and joint birthday party to Dwayne Johnson and Summer Squash’s “I Do” proposal and wedding ceremony. As we look back at these events, it’s important to keep in mind that in a world filled with uncertainty, love still shines through.
