Guy Ritchie Marries Jacqui Ainsley
Guy Ritchie and Jacqui Ainsley have made it official at long last.
The pair, who got engaged in 2012, exchanged vows on the grounds of Ashcombe House, the pair’s posh country home in Wiltshire, England – with guests “glamping” in a row of upscale tents erected in the grounds. The bride was resplendent in a wedding dress by Phillipa Lepley, her hair decked out with a garland of flowers.
Ritchie previously shared the house with his first wife, Madonna, and received it as part of their divorce settlement in December 2008.
Beckham led the tributes to the couple prior to their ceremony on Thursday.
“What a beautiful day today is going to be,” the soccer star-turned model captioned a photo of the pair on Instagram shortly before the big event.
“I want to wish my mate and his beautiful bride an amazing day where friends and family come together to celebrate what they have and are going to create together over the years to come… Have an amazing day you two… Oh and by the way don’t miss Man from U.N.C.L.E. .. Proud to have played a small part.”
Ritchie and his new bride have been dating since 2010. They have three children together: Rafael, 3½, Rivka, 2½ and Levi, 13 months.
Ainsley has also been chronicling the lead-up to the wedding on Instagram – including a shot of her backside sporting a white bikini bottom emblazoned with the words “Mrs Ritchie.”
Ritchie enjoyed a lengthy bachelor party in the lead up to the wedding at the Chateau Mouton Rothschild in France, posting about the event on Instagram earlier this week.
After arriving by private jet with friends, the group sampled a range of expensive wines and meals, such as the $1000 a bottle 1961 Chateau Haut-Brion served with Tuna and Caviar.
Meanwhile, his new bride enjoyed a far more low-key bachelorette party near their 1,200 acre home in Wiltshire, which was once owned by society photographer Cecil Beaton.
Dressed in matching white t-shirts bearing #jaxguyjuly, Ainsley and her “hens” visited the local pub and enjoyed some country walks in the warm English summer evenings.
To prepare for the wedding she took a dip in the local lake, adding on Instagram that there’s “nothing quite like a morning lake swim to kick start the excitement”.
