Ciara & Russell Wilson Are Married

Ciara and Russell Wilson just got hitched.

The duo became husband and wife on Wednesday when they tied the knot in front of close friends and family at the Peckforton Castle in Cheshire, England. The bride wore a custom Roberto Cavalli dress, designed by the label's creative director, Peter Dundas, according to E! News.

The duo attempted to keep their entire nuptials camera-free, but some of their famous friends may have spilled the news unintentionally. Ciara's close friend Jennifer Hudson has been posting a series of photos on Instagram of her A-list attire as she heads to a couple special events (ahem, the Wilson Wedding) in the U.K.

Me n my lovely date ! He's a classy guy brought me all the way to the uk for some fun !

Photos also surfaced of the couple ahead of their rehearsal dinner on Tuesday at the Titanic Hotel. Ciara looked extremely elegant in a white, halter dress with her hair pulled back, while her soon-to-be-hubby looked handsome in an all-black suit.

Both Ciara and Russell Wilson shared this photo from their wedding:

We are The Wilsons!

While the duo have kept things fairly vague on their social media accounts, the NFL star did take to Twitter to share that he had many blessings.

The stunning couple's whirlwind romance started off in April 2015 when they made several appearances together, including the White House Correspondents' Dinner. Wilson popped the question in March with a massive sparkler.

She said Yes!!! Since Day 1 I knew you were the one. No Greater feeling... #TrueLove @Ciara
