Devon Windsor and her new husband Johnny Barbara are celebrating their marriage by honeymooning in South Africa, Kenya, and the Maldives.

The Victoria’s Secret beauty tied the knot with Johnny Barbara, co-owner of fashion label Alexis, at St Bartholomew’s Anglican Church on the Caribbean island of St Barths on 16 November in front of guests including Olivia Culpo, Georgia Fowler, Shanina Shaik, and Cara Santana.

Now their three-day wedding event is over, the newlyweds are taking time out to celebrate their marriage on a multi-trip honeymoon, with planned stops in South Africa, Kenya, and the Maldives.

“Johnny and I have been wanting to do an African safari our whole lives. We were saving it for our honeymoon because we wanted to something that was a unique experience and that we will remember forever,” Windsor told Bazaar Bride of their honeymoon plans. “We went to Maldives the first year we started dating, and said that when we get married we were going to come back – so we had to make it a stop on our (trip). It’s definitely one of our favourite places in the world.”

The couple took off on their honeymoon on Wednesday. Windsor documented their travel extensively on her Instagram Stories, showing them drinking wine and changing into matching pyjamas before take-off and landing in Paris, France for a brief stopover before catching a connecting flight to Africa.

On Thursday, she shared footage of them preparing for take-off on the next plane and added in the caption, “Last leg! Next 12 hours let’s go.”

Windsor got engaged to the businessman in June 2018 after two years of dating.

Model Devon Windsor designed two new swimwear pieces to wear during her recent wedding weekend.

The 25-year-old tied the knot with Johnny Barbara, co-owner of fashion label Alexis, at St Bartholomew’s Anglican Church on the Caribbean island of St Barths on 16 November in front of guests including Olivia Culpo, Georgia Fowler, Shanina Shaik, and Cara Santana.

The day before the wedding, the couple hosted a party at a beachside restaurant and Windsor made sure she stood out from the crowd by wearing white pieces she had designed for her swimwear line Devon Windsor Swim, which she launched earlier this year.

“Being a new swimwear designer, I worked closely with my mother-in-law, now-husband, and sister-in-law to design the most intricate hand-embellished pearl and sequin swimsuit that took multiple days of just bead application alone at their atelier,” she explained to Bazaar Bride. “The coverup for my first look also had French macrame lace and French embellished lace trim all framed with pearls to tie in my swimsuit. The second look was an embroidered lace look with high-waisted bottoms that had a detachable skirt flowing down the back and a halter top. Both looks were all white and made me feel so, so special.”

For the ceremony itself, the model turned to Lebanese designer Zuhair Murad, who created a sheer, floral lace white gown and a veil with matching lace trim.

“I have always been obsessed with his couture and bridal gowns. His attention to detail is unlike anyone I have ever seen. My first gown was an off the shoulder, long-sleeved lace gown that had a long train,” Devon gushed.

The Victoria’s Secret star later changed into another Murad design – a delicate beaded dress – for the reception.
