Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux marry in a top secret garden wedding held on the grounds of their $21 mansion in Bel Air
Actors Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux tied the knot in an intimate outdoor ceremony this week (Wednesday August 5th). After years of speculation about the celebrity nuptials since their engagement back in 2012, the A-listers managed to pull off a top secret wedding.
The wedding was attended by 70 close friends and family members, including Jennifer’s Friends co-stars Lisa Kudrow, Chelsea Handler and Howard Stern. Staff members’ mobile phone were confiscated and the actress had told unsuspecting guests they were attending a surprise 44th birthday party for Justin. Jennifer’s mother Nancy Down Aniston did not attend the wedding; the mother and daughter have a turbulent relationship, exacerbated by Nancy’s expose memoir published in 1999, although the pair reconciled last year.
The bride’s hair was style by Chris McMillan, and her long-time jeweller friend Jennifer Meyer designed the couple’s wedding rings. Courtney Cox was the maid of honour, and tattoo artist Scott Bell was best man. Mobile dog groomer Spa Dog styled the couple’s pet dogs for the occasion.
TMZ news published photos of the vanilla and strawberry wedding cake being delivered to the house featuring quirky his and hers muppet-like characters toppers, the pastor arriving bible in hand, and celebrity guests arriving including Ellen DeGeneres and Emily Blunt.
The grounds of the couple’s mansion were set up for a garden wedding; a wooden panel floor was laid to cover the swimming pool to accommodate tables, along with a bar, atmospheric lighting, festival-style outdoor seating, and a marquee tent was erected next to the bar – reportedly to house the reception entertainment.
Yesterday newlyweds Jennifer and Justin were snapped at Van Nuys Airport, Los Angeles boarding a private jet to their honeymoon destination – the small South Pacific Island of Bora Bora.
