Johnny Depp to wed this weekend: 7 Details we know so far
Johnny Depp and Amber Heard are madly in love and after a yearlong engagement, the pair is rumored to be secretly getting hitched this weekend. But it's not so secret, because we have some details about what to expect from their big day.
1. Johnny Depp cannot wait to be married
The Mortdecai actor's ideas on marriage have changed dramatically since meeting Heard. He was previously in a long-term relationship with French actress Vanessa Paradis, and even after 14 years together the pair never planned on walking down the aisle — but now Depp cannot wait.
"He's completely in love and can't wait," a source told E! News. Awww!
2. The wedding will take place on a private island
According to People magazine, Depp and Heard will be getting hitched on the grounds of his 45-acre private island in the Bahamas. The area is called Little Halls Pond Cay, and we're sure it will be the perfect place for a wedding because Depp thinks of it as "pure and beautiful.
"I don't think I'd ever seen any place so pure and beautiful," he previously told Vanity Fair. "You can feel your pulse rate drop about 20 beats. It's instant freedom."
3. Space is limited, so are guests
According to The New York Post's Page Six, the couple will be tying the knot in front of just 50 guests, including Heard's family members and Depp's two children Lily-Rose, aged 15, and Jack, aged 12.
And since the wedding destination is a tiny private island, the space is limited, and according to the publication, guests will be sleeping on a yacht — the actor reportedly has a 156-foot vessel called Vajoliroja.
4. The bride will wear Stella McCartney
According to Page Six, Heard will be walking down the aisle in a dress designed by Stella McCartney, but no word yet on what the groom will be wearing.
5. Exes are invited to the wedding
Well, at least one is. According to Page Six, Depp's children will also be joined by their mother, Depp's former lover Vanessa Paradis.
6. The wedding date was chosen to coincide with their busy schedules
Sources revealed to Page Six that Depp and Heard chose their wedding date (the weekend of Feb. 7-8) because it did not conflict with their busy work schedule.
"She's filming a movie in London, and he's getting ready to film the next Pirates of the Caribbean in Australia," a source told the publication. "So this is the only time that everyone could get together."
7. The guests may include some very famous faces
The guest list for Depp and Heard's big day is not yet confirmed, but if their lavish engagement party was anything to go by, then the same guests may be attending their wedding. Guests at the engagement party held at Carondelet House in downtown Los Angeles, California, included Steven Tyler, Mandy Moore (who is now recently single), Jerry Bruckheimer and Marilyn Manson.
