Rumors of a Stewart/Pattinson-themed wedding began swirling after multiple sightings of the actor and the actress kissing and cuddling at various events. Just a few weeks later, it was confirmed by Us Weekly that the couple had secretly wed on October 13 in an intimate ceremony at St. Mary’s Church in Battersea, London.

The wedding came as a complete surprise to many, especially considering the couple had previously stated their commitment to remaining private. The ceremony was officiated by a Reverend Michael Curry and was attended by a number of celebrity guests, including Emily Blunt and Hugh Grant, who were both best men at the couple’s previous civil partnership ceremony in July 2015.

The wedding was such a success that Stewart posted a series of videos from the event on her Instagram, where she thanked her husband for “welcoming [her] into [his] life.” The clips show the actress and movie star being presented with their wedding rings by Curry and enjoying a honeymoon with their new family.

While the public may still be wrapping its head around the idea of a Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson wedding, the actor’s colleagues have been celebrating for months. In an interview with British GQ in August 2016, Stewart gushed about her new husband, saying, “I just feel so lucky. I got to marry the man I love. I couldn’t imagine anyone else but him.”

The couple have since established a public display of affection at some of Stewart’s appearances. In October 2016, Stewart was photographed holding hands with Pattinson while posing for photographers at the premiere of the movie Hocus Pocus in London. The following month, the two were seen kissing at the premiere of a movie they both appeared in, the comedy Bad Moms. At the 2017 Golden Globe Awards in January, the couple were photographed holding hands as they arrived at the after party for the Netflix movie, The Kissing Game. And in March, Stewart shared a passionate kiss with Pattinson during the closing ceremony of the annual South by Southwest Festival in Austin, Texas.

While their romance has drawn plenty of media attention, Stewart and Pattinson have been committed to remaining private and focused on their family. The couple have not released any official statements regarding their marriage, and both have continued to act publicly while remaining single. When asked about their unique approach at Lifehacks, Stewart replied, “We like to think that we’re adding a little bit of magic to the world. We don’t want to put pressure on ourselves to have to have this magical moment just because it’s the ‘right thing to do.'”

Robert Pattinson’s Early Life

Pattinson was born on May 27, 1986 in London, England to an equestrian family. His father, Michael, was an architect who had designed a number of stables for different clients, and his mother, Rosamund, was the director of nursing at a London hospital. He has a younger sister, Alice, and an older brother, Andrew.

A prodigious child with a photographic memory, Pattinson reportedly showed an interest in acting from a young age. His father took him to numerous acting classes, hoping it would “open [Pattinson’s] eyes to different possibilities.” At the age of 12, he began studying drama at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts. He also spent several years living and studying in Amsterdam, where he attended the French Lycée Louis-le-Grand. It was there he began dubbing himself “Twilight” Robert Pattinson, in reference to the Twilight Saga novels he had begun reading. While in high school, he had appeared in several stage productions, including Hamlet and King Lear. Additionally, he had landed a role in a major motion picture, the 2004 film, Clonus, which he later credited as helping him find his love for acting.

Aspiring to become an architect, Pattinson decided to attend the University of Edinburgh where he read Mathematics and Philosophy. While studying, he spent his free time acting in various stage productions at the Scottish Theatre. During this time, he met his future wife, actress and filmmaker, Kristen Stewart, at a party and they began dating shortly thereafter. In 2007, the couple decided to move to Los Angeles to pursue their dreams of stardom. They split their time between acting and studying, initially attending the University of Southern California for acting but later transferring to the University of California Los Angeles.

The Twilight Saga Before It Was A Tv Series And Phenomenon

Before the world knew who Robert Pattinson was, his most famous role was that of Edward Cullen in the Twilight Saga. Pattinson and Stewart initially collaborated on a stage production of David Harrower’s play, Beautiful Thing, and it was there that they first showcased their on-screen chemistry. The romantic comedy opened to good reviews in London in 2010 and was followed by a number of other successful theater productions, including Twelfth Night and Much Ado About Nothing. However, it was with the adaptation of Stephenie Meyer’s novel, Twilight, that the two became internationally recognizable names. It was a stunning commercial success, hitting #1 on the New York Times Best Seller list shortly after its publication in 2011. Since then, the Twilight Saga has kept the publishing world on its toes, with the first film, Twilight, earning over $400 million worldwide. The series also scored a record-breaking four Academy Award nominations, winning two in the Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Cinematography categories.

The Twilight Saga paved the way for other YA adaptations, such as the Divergent series and the blockbuster hit, The Hunger Games. All three series have been adapted from literary classics, with Twilight serving as a template for many other writers looking to cash in on the craze. Since then, the young adult fiction book series has sold over 300 million copies worldwide and been translated into 73 languages.

Pattinson And Stewart’s Early Work And Their On-Screen Chemistry

Pattinson and Stewart first worked together on the set of the 2012 film, Clouds Of Sils Morena. The adaptation of the acclaimed novel by Hélene Beaumont features an ensemble cast, with Stewart playing the role of Anna Castiglioni, an Italian art student in London in the 1950s. Some of the scenes between Stewart and Pattinson, which were initially supposed to be shot in a separate scene but were cut together for timing reasons, were so well-received by test audiences that the director reshoot some of them. Due to the scene’s success, it was decided to include more of it in the final cut of the film.

The two worked together on several other films, including the upcoming Bad Moms. The comedy, which also stars Mila Kunis, Tina Fey, and Kathryn Hahn, centers on a group of female friends who kidnap male celebrities and hold them for ransom. It was announced in July 2016 that Bad Moms would be the first ever film to be screened at the upcoming Sundance Film Festival. The following month, it was revealed that the film would be released in May 2017 by 20th Century Fox. Additionally, it was announced that Stewart would be joining the cast of the upcoming X-Men sequel, Logan.

Pattinson and Stewart’s first film together, the English adaptation of the Belgian graphic novel, The Adventures Of Prada, premiered at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival. The film centers on Kate, played by Stewart, an aspiring fashion designer who creates a men’s wear collection inspired by the designers of the Prada Group. But as her designs take off, she finds herself facing competition from a fellow student and a rival girl group. The film also stars Eric Bana, Toni Collette, Pharrell Williams, and Eugenio Derbez.

In February 2017, it was revealed that Stewart and Pattinson would be producing a limited-series anthology film, titled, Tales From the Hood, through their production company, Snowflake Films. The project will consist of six shorts from female-driven directors, which will be released one at a time throughout the year.

Pattinson And Stewart’s New Normal

Pattinson and Stewart have chosen to remain private, much to the dismay of their fans. They have not done any interviews or participated in any promotional campaigns for their films since before Twilight. The only time the two have been seen in public since 2012 is when they attended the premiere of The Rum Diary in New York City in early 2017. Since that time, they have largely stayed out of the public eye.

But it’s not like they’ve been hiding from Hollywood. The couple have quietly built a production company, Snowflake Films, which they plan to use to produce content for the big and small screens. The company’s first project, Black Widow, will be released later this year.
