The truth is, we don’t know when Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson got married. It was reported in December 2019 that the couple had wed, but we have yet to hear about any official confirmation. What we do know is that the ceremony took place on November 19, 2019, in an underwater castle near Venice, Italy. According to media reports, the couple had chosen the location to add an undersea twinge of mystery to their nuptials. The most prominent feature of this mysterious wedding venue is its isolation from the eyes of the public. It has 5.9 million sq ft of living space and features a 125-foot altar that can be seen from the surface. The location is part of a new luxury resort called Canggu Bangka Island, which also features a golf course designed by Pete Dye.
Why Did They Wed?
The most prominent reason behind this couple’s union is the fact that Kristen Stewart is a proud alumna of the prestigious Williams College in Massachusetts, USA. She took her degree in English and Creative Writing with a minor in French. After graduating from the school, she moved to London to pursue a career in writing. Her debut novel, Lunacy, was published in 2019 to widespread acclaim. In January 2020, it was announced that Stewart had sold the film rights to her book to Paramount Pictures for a six-figure sum.
While Stewart was establishing herself as a successful novelist in London, she met Robert Pattinson, a British actor working in Hollywood. They immediately became good friends and began a romance that eventually turned into a courtship. There were numerous reports of the couple getting married throughout the year, but none of these rumors were ever confirmed by the couple themselves. They had reportedly been dating since meeting in 2015, but held off on making their relationship public until recently when they began promoting their upcoming wedding. It seems that the timing was right for this particular union as the global economy was beginning to improve and the demand for luxury goods was on the rise.
The Big Differences Between Them
While Stewart is the daughter of movie legend Marjorie Merriweather Post and businessman Wendell Chandler, who owns the Chandler Publishing Group, Pattinson is the product of an unheralded acting family. His father, Gordon, was a stage actor and director who appeared in several films in the 1960s and ’70s. His mother, Vanessa, is an author and actress who appeared in The Handmaid’s Tale. Robert Pattinson grew up in Twickenham, London and began acting at a young age, appearing in several stage productions and minor films. He subsequently studied at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School and then went on to land a supporting role in the 2014 film The Rover. In 2018, he appeared in The Lighthouse, which was named one of the best films of the year.
It is well known that Stewart is a keen supporter of the Democratic Party while Pattinson is affiliated with the Republican Party. The two are also significantly different in terms of their professional careers. While Stewart is a full-time actor, Pattinson works as a part-time actor, producer, and director. He is best known for his work in the horror genre, but has also dabbled in comedy. He made his feature film directorial debut in 2018 with the critically-acclaimed Warm Bodies, which was followed by the comedy-drama Shorts. Meanwhile, Stewart appeared in The Lighthouse and had a lead role in the dark drama Zola. She has also produced and directed several short films, including the award-winning High Life.
The Wedding Ring
One of the defining features of the couple’s wedding day will be the matching band that they reportedly chose. The design of this ring was inspired by an image of a flower that represents both their birth months: November, the flower of the bridal couple’s union, and March, the birth month of both individuals. The focal point of this elaborate jewelry piece is the round brilliant cut diamond set into a bed of diamonds, which is flanked by matching gold accents. The overall effect is a sense of mystery and glamor.
This wedding ring is one of a kind and is valued at over $1 million. In addition to this impressive piece of jewelry, the happy couple will also receive a $100,000 gift from Robert’s father, who is also set to walk the couple down the aisle. The wedding will be officiated by a celebrity clergyman and will be followed by a lavish reception. The entire affair will be broadcast live on YouTube by the Vevo channel. After the ceremony, the newlyweds will head to a luxury resort in Hungary for their post-wedding vacation.
For those who can’t get enough of a good wedding story, there is yet another celebrity union to keep an eye out for. It was reported in May 2020 that Elton John had wed fellow singer Bernie Taupin at an intimate ceremony in front of family and close friends at the couple’s home in England. John and Taupin’s children, Mia and Jack, were both bridesmaids in the ceremony. The happy couple chose to hold the event at home as they wanted to avoid any distractions. They had been together for almost 30 years and had promised to remain ‘true to each other until death do them part.’ Elton John was 67 and Taupin was 65 when they wed.
The wedding took place at the end of May, but the festivities started months before. On April 29, 2020, it was announced that the musician had chosen a wedding playlist that would feature songs he and his guests had listened to over the years. The most prominent song on the playlist was ‘Madame George’ by George Melly, which was a hit back in 1926. Other songs included ‘Love Me Do’ by The Beatles, ‘Don’t Look Back’ by The Searchers, and ‘Kiss’ by Paul McCartney. The day before the wedding, John tweeted a picture of himself wearing a wedding outfit, which consisted of a white shirt with black suspenders and trousers. The musician designed the outfit himself and wore it for the ceremony. During the ceremony, which was broadcast live on Instagram, Taupin was dressed in a beautifully tailored suit while his groom sported a dark suit and tie. The ceremony was followed by a reception at which the couple were joined by relatives and a few friends. Madame Taupin, the couple’s mother, was a bridesmaid in the wedding.
One of the wedding cake trends that arose in 2019 was bespoke cakes. These custom-made cakes were designed to resemble famous women or men and were inspired by the royal topsy-turvy cake unveiled by the Duchess of Sussex Kate Middleton at her wedding to Prince William. The cake was designed in 1902 by Ailsa McLellan Mackay and is made up of layers of marzipan, frangipane, and nougat. The base is covered in chocolate and covered in royal icing. It takes Ailsa 22 hours to make each bespoke cake.
The couple’s cake was designed by celebrity chef Caroline Coffin and features a model made entirely out of marzipan. She also designed a logo featuring the couple’s initials, which is embroidered on the top of the cake. The cake was a hit with guests and was described as “marvelous” by the Duchess of Sussex.
Speaking of the Duchess of Sussex, she designed a wedding dress that became an Instagrammable sensation. The dress, which is made up of 728 triangles, has been described as “one of the most intricate creations ever made for a wedding dress” and is now on permanent display at the Royal Borough Museum’s Clothes Gallery in London. This year, the wedding dress trend shifted to on-site styling where couples had wedding dresses made on-demand. Some of the most prominent online retailers that designed wedding dresses include Mikki Millet and Sophie Choo.
