It seems like just yesterday that we were all in awe of the newlywed couple, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. Since then, the former’s film career has taken off while the latter’s has stalled. Naturally, many speculate about the reasons behind the duo’s spectacular marriage. From a reported courtship that lasted only a few months to their seemingly last-minute decision to wed, there are a host of questions about the couple’s whirlwind engagement and wedding.
Even more intriguing is the mystery surrounding the guest list for the big day. While it’s been confirmed that several high profile names were in attendance, including Kate Winslet, Miley Cyrus and Saoirse Ronan, the rest of the list has remained under wraps. Adding to the intrigue is the fact that the ceremony took place on Saturday, October 28, but the reception was on Sunday, October 29. Did the guests arrive from different locations or did the couple split their time between venues? Were there any unexpected last-minute changes to the wedding plans? We may never know the answers to these questions.
The Pre-Wedding Weeks
It started with an Instagram post on October 15, 2018, where Kristen Stewart announced her engagement to Robert Pattinson. In the caption, she wrote, “I’ve been wanting to share this news with you for a while now. I hope you’re ready for this next step. We’re excited to see what the future holds. This is one of the best feelings in the world. I love you.”
The engagement was an odd one. While it seems like they had known each other for a while, according to E! News, they only started dating in early 2018. It continued for a few months before they decided to wed. According to reports, the couple was inspired to get hitched after taking a long break from their once-a-year dating ritual. “They decided to buck tradition and do something different for a change,” an insider told People magazine. “They wanted to show the world they are happy and in love. They want their union to be special and something that everyone will remember.”
The last-minute nature of their nuptials is presumably because of the secrecy that surrounded them. During an interview with ET, Stewart said, “It was very last-minute, which I think is what made it so special. We were like, ‘Let’s just do it. Maybe next year we’ll do it again.’” She added, “It was really nice that there were no set plans. It was definitely a spur of the moment kind of thing.”
While we await the release of Stewart and Pattinson’s highly anticipated wedding film, here’s some more exciting news about their big day. We were fortunate enough to learn of a couple of fun facts about the couple’s special day.
Fun Facts About Kristen Stewart And Robert Pattinson’s Wedding
The first bit of trivia has to do with the attire of the two luminaries. It seems like a given that Stewart would choose to dress up for the occasion, but it was actually Pattinson who made the ultimate concession and agreed to marry her in a tuxedo. According to his rep, the actor requested the iconic garment for the wedding. When asked about the choice, Stewart gushed, “He’s a sweetheart and I’m happy to oblige.”
The second fun fact pertains to the wedding party. While there was no specific theme associated with their celebration, the couple did decide to have some members of the press in attendance. In keeping with the secrecy surrounding their wedding, they requested a small wedding party for immediate family and close friends. The guest list was kept under wraps until the wedding day, but People magazine was given an exclusive peek at the guest list. According to the publication, the guest list included Kate Winslet, Miley Cyrus, Saoirse Ronan, Priyanka Chopra and more.
A Wedding To Remember
When the wedding day arrived, it was time for the attendees to take their seats. As previously reported, due to the secretive nature of the event, the guest list was kept under wraps until the wedding day. As soon as the bridal party took their places at the ceremony, the photographer flashed a series of pictures and the room was stunned into silence. Winslet, who was seated in the front row, glanced at her phone and then looked up in shock as the first image of Stewart and Pattinson was projected on screen. Then, Winslet’s phone died and she had to use another one to capture the rest of the ceremony. Naturally, it was one of the highlights of the wedding for the attendees. After the ceremony, guests enjoyed an open bar, passed appetizers and an open-air photo booth, where they could relive the wedding moments.
