Oh wow! 2016 is truly a year of love and celebrity weddings.
Over the weekend, Margot Robbie ended her year with a bang by secretly marrying her longtime British boyfriend, Tom Ackerley, in a secret ceremony in Byron Bay, Australia. It was reported that the “Suicide Squad” actress was given away by her mother while her sister served as her maid of honour.
Wedding rumours surrounding the couple surfaced last week after Robbie was spotted at Gold Coast airport wearing a t-shirt that read “Say ‘I Do’ Down Under”. In addition, Ackerley’s brother posted an image on Instagram with the location tagged as Harvest Newrybar, a popular wedding venue in Byron Bay.
“I was the ultimate single gal. The idea of relationships made me want to vomit. And then this crept up on me,” Robbie told Vogue.
She continued, “We were friends for so long. I was always in love with him, but I thought, ‘Oh, he would never love me back. Don’t make it weird, Margot. Don’t be stupid and tell him that you like him.’ And then it happened, and I was like, ‘Of course we’re together. This makes so much sense, the way nothing has ever made sense before.'”
26-year-old Margot Robbie and the British assistant director first met on the set of “Suit Francaise”, a 2013 World War II drama. In an interview, the “Legend of Tarzan” actress described her beau as “the best-looking guy in London”.
Though the actress has yet to release an official statement (and more importantly, wedding photos), it’s such a sweet, sweet news to end the year with.
UPDATE (20th December, 4pm):
Margot Robbie has confirmed her marriage!
The Aussie bombshell took to Instagram to post a photo of her wedding ring, which sent fans into a frenzy. The photo focuses of Robbie’s ring while the couple can be seen kissing passionately in the blurry background.
According to News.com.au, the secret ceremony was held at a private property in Coorabell, Byron Bay at 4pm on Monday (19th December). The event was so private that all 50 guests were told to hand in their mobile phones and cameras.
For her wedding, Robbie wore a white lacey off-the-shoulder dress with a matching ribbon belt highlighting her slim waistline.
Congratulations to the happy couple <3
