And another one bites the dust... There's nothing more we hate doing than bidding farewell to our favorite celebrity couples and Johnny Depp and Amber Heard — who just announced their divorce — are no exception. We hate that these two are calling it quits! And since we need a chance to mourn the whirlwind romance between the blonde beauty and the brooding movie star, we're taking a look back on their warm and romantic Bahamian destination wedding day.
After a year of marriage, Heard has filed for divorce from her husband after a year of marriage, according to CNN, citing irreconcilable differences and requesting spousal support. But today, we're focusing on happier times, back to when Heard and Depp tied the knot on the groom's private island in the Bahamas.
Depp and Heard met while shooting the 2011 film The Rum Diary and began dating the following year. The twosome later got engaged in early 2014, with Depp confirming the news when he was spotted wearing his fiancé's diamond sparkler. "The fact that I'm wearing a chick's ring on my finger is probably a dead giveaway. Not very subtle," Depp told a reporter when asked if he was getting hitched, becoming one of the first celebs we know of to rock the "man-gagement" ring trend.
After a year long engagement, Heard and Depp finally tied the knot in February of 2015 in one of those secret celebrity weddings that we really are getting sick of over here. (We want all the photos, y'all!) The pair got married in a quiet civil ceremony at their home in Los Angeles, before heading to Little Hall's Pond Cay island in the Bahamas for a second ceremony and reception with their family and close friends.
The bride walked down the sandy, seaside aisle wearing a Stella McCartney wedding dress. Meanwhile the groom donned a white tuxedo jacket as they tied the knot under a canopy of fresh blooms and gauzy white fabric, on a stretch of land Depp dubbed Amber Beach after his love.
"Amber did her own hair and make-up and Johnny was as laid-back as usual," a source divulged of the big day. Talk about a calm, cool, and collected couple! They also kept their guest list to a minimum, only inviting about 50 guests, including Jennifer Connolly's husband, actor Paul Bettany, and Depp's two children, who enjoyed sunning themselves on the beach and snorkeling all wedding weekend long.
"She's a wonderful girl," Depp previously told NBC's Today show of his bride. "She's sharp as a tack. A southern belle and sweet as can be, and very good for me."
Say it ain't so, guys, say it ain't so...
