Singer Ciara and footballer Russell Wilson are now happily married but it has been revealed the they were forced to cancel the wedding twice before eventually getting hitched in England last month.
The couple exchanged vows in the English countryside at the beginning of June.
They were initially planning to get hitched in North Carolina but decided to ditch that idea when the controversial ‘bathroom bill’. The new law, which forces people to use the restroom that corresponds with the gender listed on their birth certificate, was brought in there at that time and therefore they took the decision to change the venue altogether, reported Female First.
The couple’s wedding planner Mindy Weiss revealed, “They were first getting married in North Carolina, but they called it off due to the transgender bathroom laws.”
The duo then set their hearts on tying the knot in Paris, France, but had no choice but to abandon that idea after they realised it clashed with Paris Fashion Week.
“They were gonna go to Paris and it ended up being [Couture] Fashion Week. And it was really difficult.
“We ended up in London. They wanted to be away.
“And we found a castle that was an hour out of Liverpool and they had about 110 guests,” Weiss said.
