The couple – who got engaged in 2013 – will tie the knot on his private island
Johnny Depp and Amber Heard are getting ready to walk down the (sandy) aisle!
A source confirms to PEOPLE that the couple are preparing to marry on Depp’s private island (a.k.a. Little Hall’s Pond Cay) in the Bahamas next weekend.
Depp has owned the 45-acre island – with beaches named after his children, Lily-Rose, 15, and Jack, 12, and his idols Hunter S. Thompson and Marlon Brando – for more than a decade.
Reps for Depp, 51, and Heard, 28, haven’t responded to requests for comment. The couple met on the set of 2011’s The Rum Diary, but didn’t start dating until 2012, after Depp split with longtime partner Vanessa Paradis. In January 2014, sources confirmed to PEOPLE that Depp and Heard had gotten engaged over the holidays.
Depp sparked marriage speculation last week when he was spotted wearing what looked like a traditional wedding ring while doing press for his latest film, Mortdecai.
With his press for that movie just finished (despite a chupacabra attack) and production starting soon for the next Pirates of the Caribbean movie, this looks like Depp’s perfect time to make his fiancée Mrs. Jack Sparrow.
The New York Post‘s Page Six, which first reported the wedding news, says guests will stay on a yacht for the wedding weekend, but Depp sold his 156-footer, Vajoliroja, a few years ago. (He could still rent it!)
