After dating almost a year, Robert Pattinson and FKA Twigs are celebrating their engagement by tying the knot.
The couple first sparked a public romance in April when they were spotted shopping for accessories in New York City. Since then, they have been linked to each other more closely than ever before, with Pattinson even popping the question (on film, of course) during a sunset ceremony at London’s famed Tower Bridge.
The actor wore a black turtleneck sweater and a floral print tie in a tasteful combination that said ‘I do’ without a hint of irony. FKA Twigs looked radiant in a stunning ivory dress with a golden brocade pattern which she paired with stilettos.
The newlyweds made their first appearance as a couple six months later at the 2017 Film Independent Spirit Awards in Los Angeles, where they were honored for their outstanding work. Since then, they have kept a low profile while continuing to enjoy each other’s company, with Pattinson even inviting Twigs to walk the red carpet with him at the 2017 Golden Globes Awards.
The actor and singer-songwriter looked every bit the classic Hollywood star as she paired a simple black dress with red accessories.
The twosome’s friendship has been a source of interest, with Pattinson even consulting Twigs before his 2017 directorial debut, ‘The Lost City’, which he both wrote and co-produced. He will next appear in the upcoming film ‘Marquise’, which will mark his first dramatic role in six years.
The couple have been linked to a number of famous faces over the years, including Ed Sheeran, who reportedly proposed to Twigs after just three dates. The love affair began when Sheeran popped the question during a private sunset ceremony at a luxury yacht brothel in the Maldives.
The British actress later confirmed the engagement and said that she was “overwhelmed” by the proposal. She also admitted that the engagement had been a “long time coming” and thanked her fans for their support during a statement posted on her website.
Pattinson, who will also appear in the upcoming film ‘The King’, recently opened up about his engagement in a new interview with British Vogue.
“I was going to propose to Ed [Sheeran] when we made Love is Strange. But then I decided to do it in the Maldives,” he said. “It wouldn’t feel right to propose to someone you’ve only known for a few weeks. That would be setting the bar pretty high.”
“I want to keep things simple,” he continued. “I don’t want to throw away all the other relationships I’ve had because this one didn’t work out. It wasn’t supposed to work out. It was only ever going to be a bit of fun. But it turned out to be a lot of fun.”
Pattinson also admitted that he and Twigs had been keeping a low profile since their engagement, but that he was looking forward to the opportunity to celebrate with their fans.
“I’d been pretty quiet since the engagement. I’d been keeping very quiet, actually,” he said. “But now that I’m getting ready to pop the question, I feel like having the most intimate and exciting moment possible with the person I love most in the world. So I’m looking forward to that.”
The pair’s romance was first brought to light in April 2017, when pictures of the England-born actor making a surprise appearance at Twigs’ birthday party surfaced online. The following month, they were spotted strolling through New York City together and sharing an intimate dinner at Nobu. Later that year, they were photographed together at the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party, where the English beauty was wearing a stunning dress that showcased her curves.
Pattinson previously expressed his desire to settle down in the near future, telling British Vogue, “I want to propose to someone at some point but I don’t want to rush into it. I want to make sure it’s the right person.”
