Idris Elba marries Sabrina Dhowre in Morocco
The couple got engaged at a film screening last year.
Idris Elba has tied the knot with girlfriend Sabrina Dhowre in a ceremony in Morocco.
In photographs shared by British Vogue on Instagram, the bride wore a custom gown by Vera Wang, while the Luther actor wore a bespoke suit by Ozwald Boateng.
They exchanged vows on April 26 at the Ksar Char Bagh hotel in Marrakesh, according to the magazine.
The night before the ceremony friends and family attended a “colours of the souk” themed dinner and on Saturday will attend a party at the Mandarin Oriental hotel, which will reportedly emulate the atmosphere of a festival.
The couple got engaged last February after Elba dropped to one knee during a screening of his film Yardie at the Rio Cinema in Dalston, east London.
