Idris Elba and Sabrina Dhowre got married in a private ceremony that just so happened to be covered by Vogue – but after the glossy, posed-up snaps were taken it was time for the bride and groom to let their hair down.
The happy newlyweds partied the night away after their nuptials in the Moroccan capital, Marrakesh, having tied the knot on Friday at the beautiful Ksar Char Bagh hotel.
They brought the festivities over to the Mandarin Oriental, where celebrity guests mingled with their special entertainers – and shoe designer to the stars Christian Louboutin even attempted to twerk.
Nigerian popstar Davido flew in especially on a private jet to perform for his mate Idris, and was seen in a sneaky video singing right in front of the bride and groom.
Wearing a tight black t-shirt and jeans, he sang into the microphone and danced as Idris and Sabrina laughed and partied alongside him.
At one point, Christian grabbed Davido's other hand and they jumped in the air together before dropping down low and grinding for the bride's amusement.
The musical superstar flashed the red sole of his own Louboutin loafers to the designer, who copied him by raising up his leg and showing everyone the scarlet soles he became famous for.
Beaming Sabrina couldn't stop laughing as her guests applauded the spontaneous show, while Idris – who was also holding a mic – danced along next to them.
It had clearly been a long day for the happy couple, as Idris had jettisoned his smart custom-made Ozwald Boateng jacket and had loosened his black tie.
He still wore his white wedding shirt and a black fitted waistcoat to match his evening trousers.
The couple's new rings could be seen sparkling on their left hands – Idris appears to have a thick plain platinum band worn next to the gold signet on his little finger, while Sabrina's enormous diamond ring was perched on her ring finger.
Guests all wore black tie, with many of the women in colourful floor-length gowns and the men in tuxedos and bow ties.
Meanwhile, former Miss Vancouver model Sabrina was in her second wedding dress of the day, having changed out of her gorgeous off-the-shoulder white A-line Vera Wang that she'd worn for the ceremony.
Her reception dress was a white couture lace embroidered number with a deep V-neck and a long train that swept the floor.
It was embellished with pearls and gemstones that caught the light as she danced and clapped.
There were rumours that Diana Ross performed at the happy couple's reception, as she and her son Evan Ross were spotted at LAX airport catching a flight to Morocco on Saturday morning.
Idris and Sabrina made sure they had their Hollywood dream by spreading their wedding out across three days.
Their closest friends and family were treated to a 'colours of the souk' themed dinner on Thursday night at the luxurious Amanjena resort, then on Friday the bride and groom made their vows to each other at their ceremony.
Pictures from their exclusive nuptials will be published in the upcoming July issue of Vogue, which has already teased fans by releasing four snaps of Idris and Sabrina glowing with joy as they promised to love each other forever.
It seems that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were invited to attend as guests, but presumably turned down the invite because the Duchess of Sussex is due to give birth any day now.
But the royals still managed to make their presence felt – by gifting Idris and Sabrina a stunning £7,000 present.
It's believed they sent the couple apiece of art by the Connor Brothers said to be worth £7,000, reports the Mail on Sunday.
A picture shared on the artists' official Instagram page last year shows the image of a glamorous woman from the 1950s above the words: "Why fit in when you were born to stand out?"
Idris and Prince Harry go way back, having met through the Prince's Trust charity, which helped Idris get into acting with a grant.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex even asked him to DJ at their champagne-fuelled wedding reception in May last year, and the actor – known as DJ Dig Driis The Londoner – willingly accepted.
