Pop superstar couple, Robert Pattinson and Kate Winslet, announced they were going to be married back in December 2016. Since then, their fans have been eagerly anticipating the big day. However, their highly-anticipated nuptials were postponed until September 2019.

On September 4, 2019, The New York Times ran an article revealing that Kate had pulled out of the wedding back in March. The article stated that a source close to the couple revealed, “[Kate] was adamant that the wedding should not be postponed, but the couple’s busy schedules made it difficult to carry out the ceremony as planned.”

The source also added that due to the pandemic, the wedding was rescheduled for this upcoming June.

It was later reported that the superstar couple had begun filming their wedding video in April and had hired an editor to help them cut it down to a manageable length. The source revealed, “[Kate] had wanted to have a more lavish celebration, but the pandemic and her pregnancy had put a damper on their plans.”

Why All the Hype?

The world’s most famous couple has seen their fair share of heartbreak over the years. Kate was previously engaged to megastar Leonardo DiCaprio back in 2011 before calling it off. The actress was then linked to her current beau, English heartthrob, Robert in 2014. Since their relationship began, it’s been very public and there’s been a steady stream of tabloid rumors and stories revealing their personal life. To date, they’ve kept quiet about their future plans and the speculation has continued.

The couple’s hush hush status is probably because they haven’t given many interviews since their engagement in 2016. In fact, they’ve only done a few, including the aforementioned Times piece. So, most of their announcements have either been through social media or their representatives.

While we’ve been kept in the dark about the superstar couple’s engagement and wedding planning, their fans have flocked to social media to express their excitement about this exciting news. The hype began back in December 2016 when Robert Pattinson popped the question to Kate Winslet during an intimate ceremony in Italy.

Many of their fans have since spent the last two years rooting for the couple and hoping for an updated wedding photo to confirm the big news. While the world’s most famous couple has remained relatively private, their fans have taken inspiration from their romance and used it as the basis for their own personal stories and illustrations.

The Importance of Music In Their Relationship

Aside from keeping their romance under wraps, the couple has also chosen to keep the music aspect of their relationship private as well. So, it wasn’t exactly a huge surprise when they delayed their wedding to accommodate BTS’s hit song, “Spring Day.”

The K-pop band’s song was released in April 2019 and it immediately shot to number one on the Billboard Top Music Downloads chart. The song also became BTS’s first number one on the Billboard Top 100 Albums chart and earned the group their very first Grammy nomination.

Music has always played an important role in the couple’s lives. Kate worked with the likes of Ryan Reynolds and Henry Golding on the soundtrack for the 2011 animated film, The Romantic Comedy. She also collaborated with the band, Coldplay, on their 2011 track, “Paradise.” In 2018, she appeared in a music video with Grammy-nominated artist, Charlie Puth.

While singing and songwriting is undoubtedly a part of Kate’s DNA, it wasn’t until recently that she began acting in film and TV while also maintaining a full-time schedule as a singer. In 2020, she will appear in the Netflix movie, When Love Goes Wrong alongside Enrique Iglesias and Natalia Lafourcade. In the past, Kate has turned down offers to star in blockbusters, like Harry Potter, because she feels that acting in those films would interfere with her singing career. So, it seems that even after two decades, music still plays a huge role in Kate Winslet’s life.

Wedding Rings And Jewelry

Another way in which Kate and Rob’s relationship has been kept under wraps is by choosing not to disclose their wedding rings and other jewelry. When the couple announced their engagement in 2016, it was met with immediate speculation about whether or not they would get matching bands because of their obvious connection to Harry Potter. They also received a fair share of criticism for not choosing to wear traditional bridal sets. In an interview with The New York Times, Kate claimed that the criticism really hurt and that it made her question whether or not she wanted to get married. However, it seems that the criticism only fueled her desire to wed the British actor.

While we don’t know much about their engagement or wedding, we do know that Kate wears a Cartier Cartier Solitaire Ring, while Robert wears a Harry Potter-themed ring made up of gold, teal and red enamel. Their engagement and nuptials both took place in Italy and her dress was designed by the renowned Giorgio Armani.

Romantic Getaways And Honeymoons

Apart from their engagement and wedding announcements, the world also learned that Kate and Rob enjoyed an intimate vacation to Italy back in December 2016. Since then, we’ve only seen them together on special occasions and in private. However, it seems that they’ve taken their privacy policy to heart because they’ve chosen to keep quiet about their most recent romantic getaways and honeymoons. So, while the world knows that Kate and Rob are an item, we don’t know too much about their relationship. Which is probably why their relationship is one of Hollywood’s most controversial topics.

What we do know is that the couple likes to keep things private and that they prefer to travel Europe in style rather than in the spotlight. When they do give interviews, Kate usually makes sure that the topic is something other than their romance because she doesn’t want to tarnish her image as a solo singer. While we don’t know too much about their personal life, we know that their professional lives are very busy and that they probably don’t have the time to spare for interviews. So, aside from the occasional red-carpet appearance, we don’t get to see too much of them.

Sobering Realizations

Since their engagement and wedding have been postponed, Kate and Rob have been forced to look back on the past two years and consider everything that they’ve learned. In an interview with The New York Times, Rob stated, “There are always things that you realize once you’ve been married for a while that you didn’t know about before. For example, I didn’t know how much cleaning there is physically involved in having a child. I’m a very clean person, but there are times when I come home from work and there’s a huge cleaning bill. It makes you appreciate things more than you did before.”

While having children has undoubtedly changed their lives forever, it hasn’t been all bad. The actor went on to credit his role in the 2021 blockbuster, The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortezo with changing his perspective on life. As he put it, “I see the world through a kid’s eyes now. It’s opened up a whole new way of looking at things. I look at my son when I’m driving and I think, ‘That’s an incredible feat that you’ve accomplished. You’ve created something magical.’ I don’t know if I would’ve been able to see that when I was younger, not having been a parent myself.”

Rescheduled Wedding

After postponing their wedding to accommodate BTS’s hit song, “Spring Day,” Kate and Rob were finally able to get married this past June. The actor wore a gray suit and his face was hidden behind a wedding veil. Kate wore a beautiful white dress designed by the renowned Christian Dior and she was attended by her closest friends and family. The couple’s son, Hunter, also made an appearance and he walked his dad down the aisle. The pair renewed their vows in front of a crowd of 200 guests at London’s Westminster Hall. After the ceremony, they headed for a quiet celebration at their Richmond home. The happy couple’s first dance was met with a burst of excitement from their guests. However, the dance was cut short when they were interrupted by a performance from DJ Mustafa. The British rapper performed his new single, “My House,” a duet with Nelly Furtado and it was met with a standing ovation from the crowd. It was then that Kate and Robert knew just how lucky they were to have found one another. The singer then thanked the crowd for being there and for making the wedding such a magical day. She also took the opportunity to thank her family and friends for supporting her throughout the years, no matter what.
