Idris Elba marries Sabrina Dhowre during three-day celebration in Morocco

Idris Elba said “I do!”

The British actor and Sabrina Dhowre exchanged vows on Friday at the Ksar Char Bagh hotel during a three-day celebration of their love in Marrakech, according to British Vogue.

Dhowre, a model and former Miss Vancouver, wore a white, off-the shoulder Vera Wang dress for the ceremony before switching into another gown by the same designer – this one, embroidered with pearls, gemstones and lace – later in the night.

Friends and family of the newly-weds kicked off their days of celebration on Thursday with a “colours of souk” themed dinner at the Amanjena. And the festivities will continue on Saturday with an all-white party at the Mandarin Oriental, which will have a festival-like atmosphere.

The couple got engaged in front of a crowd during a screening of Elba’s directorial debut, “Yardie” in February 2018, the same year the 46-year-old DJ was crowned “People’s Sexiest Man Alive.”

They met a year earlier while Elba was filming the thriller flick “The Mountain Between Us," which tells the story of a man and a woman – played by Kate Winslet – who get stranded in the wilderness following a plane crash.

“Falling in love while making a moving about falling in love is pretty special,” Elba told People at the time.

Still, he said his public proposal “was the most nerve-wracking thing ever.”

“It was a little spontaneous if I’m honest,” Elba told the magazine. “I was at a cast and crew screening and among people I loved. We had all worked so hard for this project so I was like I’m doing it right now, here, today.”
