First picture of Matthew and Camila McConaughey’s wedding revealed on People magazine cover
The first picture from Matthew and Camila McConaughey’s intimate wedding has been revealed on the cover of People magazine.
While Matthew McConaughey, 42, looked smart in a black tuxedo, Camila, 29, is seen wearing a long-sleeve white lace dress, complete with a beaded headdress, drop silver earrings and matching veil.
The pair is seen gazing lovingly into each others’ eyes in the touching picture.
Talking about the pair’s decision to wed, Matthew McConaughey told People magazine: “We decided to embrace the ritual of marriage as an opportunity and adventure we’ll take together.”
The couple was watched by around 120 guests, including famous faces such as Reese Witherspoon and Matthew McConaughey’s close friend Woody Harrelson, as they tied the knot at their home in Austin, Texas on June 9th.
But the most special guests of all were undoubtedly the pair’s two children Levi, 3, and two-year-old Vida, who took pride of place as ring bearer and flower girl respectively for the wedding.
Camila added of her children’s roles in the ceremony: “Somehow they both seem to understand what we are doing on a spiritual level.”
Matthew and Camila McConaughey are said to have shared whispered vows, uttering them into each other’s ears, according to Us Weekly.
A source told the publication: “No one knew what they said. Whatever they said was very emotional. [Camila] was tearing up.”
The couple – who had been together six years before getting engaged last Christmas – decided against a traditional first dance and a cake – instead of opting for a selection of desserts.
They shared a long passionate kiss, before dancing the night away into the early hours, the report continues.
Camila has taken Matthew’s surname and has officially become Camila McConaughey, the actor’s representation told People.com.
People magazine also reports that the couple kept the nuptials a secret from some guests up until the very last minute.
A sea of tents set out in the grounds of the property provided accommodation for their guests.
The luxury temporary abodes, numbered 1-47, were in four rows in the garden and were said to be kitted out with beds, cosy white fur rugs on the floor, and outdoor seating with doormats at the front.
Shortly after the wedding, Matthew McConaughey was spotted leaving a gym in Austin – distracting from his sweat-soaked workout gear with his new gold wedding band.
